SculpSure™ Frequently Asked Questions

Dermatology, Cosmetic & Laser Surgery
for NYC, Manhattan & Worldwide


For those of you interested in losing some excess fat from anywhere on your body, our New York City dermatologist, Dr. Bruce Katz, offers a revolutionary new treatment known as SculpSure™. SculpSure™ is a completely non-invasive procedure that utilizes the hyperthermic energy of a sophisticated laser to literally melt your fat away. Once it's melted, your body naturally removes it.

Since it has become such a popular and effective manner in which to remove fat, we got a lot of questions from our patients about why you should choose Sculpsure. We wanted to share our answers with you:


Who Is a Candidate for the Procedure?

SculpSure™, just like any other fat removal procedure, is never meant to be a weight loss program; it is meant to remove stubborn fat that you've attempted to be free from yourself. A good candidate is in good overall health that has attempted fat loss through healthy eating and a healthy exercise regimen. A typical candidate has a body mass index (BMI) of over 30. Our doctor will make other suggestions prior to the procedure.

How Many Sessions of SculpSure™ Will I Need and How Much Time Between Them?

Unlike many other laser fat removal treatments, SculpSure™ only requires one treatment!

Is There Any Downtime?

Since SculpSure™ is completely non-invasive, there is no downtime associated with the procedure and you can return to work immediately after.

What Is the Difference Between This Technology and CoolSculpting®?

While SculpSure™ utilizes heat to melt your fatty tissues so they release from your body and can be removed naturally, CoolSculpting® freezes the fat cells so they release and can be naturally removed. However, CoolSculpting takes an hour per treatment for each area and only one area can be treated at a time, whereas SculpSure is non-surgical, requires no downtime and can treat four areas instead of only one at a time, in addition, each treatment takes 1/2 the time of CoolSculpting. Here is more information about why you may want to choose SculpSure over CoolSculpting.

What Areas of the Body Can Be Treated?

SculpSure™ can be applied to almost any body part as determined by Dr. Katz.

When Will I See Results?

Typically, you will see results between 6-12 weeks.

How Does My Body Get Rid of the Fat Cells?

The hyperthermic action of SculpSure™ heats your fat cells, causing them to detach from your inner tissues. Once they've been removed, the body considers them unnecessary tissue and will filter them through your body just as they would any other loose tissue or particles. The fat will dissipate naturally and effectively disappear from your body.
