Fat Reduction Q & A

What is fat reduction?

Fat reduction treatments aim to slim you down by breaking down your fat cells in areas that don’t go away with a healthy diet or exercise. Even if you live a perfectly healthy lifestyle, you likely have some areas of fat that stubbornly stick to you due to your genetic predispositions or simply because you’re getting older. 

With fat reduction procedures, you can get a smaller, chiseled look without surgery, scars or downtime. The results take shape gradually so it isn’t obvious that you’ve had fat reduction treatments. 

How can I reduce my fat without surgery?

At Symphony Medical Spa, Dr. Forbes and her team offer noninvasive fat reduction treatments with SculpSure®. SculpSure treatments use high-powered lasers to target and heat the areas of excess fat. The heat from the laser kills your fat cells, and your body’s natural processes flush them out of your body in the 6 to 12 weeks following each appointment. 

You may need several fat reduction sessions to get to your ideal shape. Dr. Forbes works with you to form a treatment plan that achieves all of your fat reduction goals.

What are the benefits of nonsurgical fat reduction?

Nonsurgical fat reduction procedures like SculpSure are a much safer option than surgery. Benefits of nonsurgical fat reduction include:

  • Improved appearance
  • Improved self-esteem
  • No need for anesthesia
  • No recovery time
  • Minimal side effects
  • Lasting results

The results are permanent unless you gain a lot of weight following your fat reduction treatment. Fat reduction treatments aren’t your best option if you’re still in the process of losing weight or if you’re obese.

What are the limitations of fat reduction treatments?

A common misconception about fat reduction is that it’s intended to help you lose weight. Even though you may lose a bit of weight with the treatment, you shouldn’t use it as a weight loss method. Instead, fat reduction treatments are supposed to help you slim down areas of excess skin and specific areas of fat that are hard to lose. 

It’s also important to note that you can’t predict your fat reduction results. Everyone’s body takes the treatment differently, so it’s impossible to tell exactly how much of a reduction in fat that you’ll see. If you’re unsatisfied with the results of your first treatment, you may schedule additional sessions after 6 to 12 weeks.
