Body Sculpting Q & A
What is body sculpting?
Body sculpting at BY Wound Care Internal Medicine is an aesthetic treatment Dr. Yang offers to improve the shape of your body and help you achieve your aesthetic goals. Dedicated to providing the most cutting-edge treatments, Dr. Yang uses the Cutera® line of aesthetic devices, including the body-sculpting tool truSculpt® iD.
What is truSculpt iD?
TruSculpt iD is a noninvasive body-sculpting tool that removes unwanted fat without surgery or downtime. This advanced body-sculpting treatment uses radiofrequency to target and destroy the fat cells under your skin. Your body processes the damaged fat cells and eliminates them through your lymphatic system.
Dr. Yang uses truSculpt iD to treat many common trouble spots, including:
With truSculpt iD, Dr. Yang can destroy up to 24% of the fat in the treatment area after one 15-minute session. In addition to helping rid your body of unwanted fat, the radiofrequency energy produced by truSculpt iD tightens the skin to minimize laxity.
Am I a good candidate for body sculpting?
Dr. Yang determines if you’re a good candidate for body sculpting with truSculpt iD during your consultation. While body sculpting can help you get rid of unwanted body fat, it isn’t a weight loss tool. Ideally, you should be at or near your desired body weight, with a body mass index of 30 or less.
If you struggle to lose weight, Dr. Yang offers a medical weight-loss program designed to meet your specific health needs and weight-loss goals.
What can I expect during body sculpting?
Dr. Yang performs your body-sculpting treatment at the office. Treatment time varies depending on the number of areas being addressed. Dr. Yang provides a treatment plan before you get started, so you know what to expect.
You shouldn’t feel any discomfort during your body-sculpting treatment. In fact, many patients report that it feels like a relaxing hot stone massage.
There’s no downtime following your body-sculpting session, and you can resume your usual activities afterward. With truSculpt iD, you only need one treatment session, but it may take up to 12 weeks for you to see the final results.
