Sarasota and Bradenton Plastic Surgeon Discusses Non-Surgical Fat Reduction With SculpSure

Jeffrey K. Scott, MD, FACS Performs Non-Invasive, FDA-Approved Sculpsure Treatment for Patients Interested in Removing Fat From the Flanks and Abdomen Without Surgery or Downtime

SARASOTA, FL--(Marketwired - Feb 4, 2016) - Dr. Jeffrey K. Scott is among an elite group of plastic surgeons in the United States who are trained and approved to provide SculpSure® non-surgical abdominal contouring treatment. As a surgeon dedicated to utilizing the latest technology, Dr. Scott describes SculpSure® as an exciting advancement in non-invasive fat removal technology that is transforming the landscape of aesthetic body contouring.

SculpSure® is quickly becoming a treatment of choice for Dr. Scott's patients who are interested in eliminating pockets of excess abdominal fat for a smoother, tighter waistline and midsection. The SculpSure® system is unique in that it is the first non-surgical treatment to harness light-energy from a hyperthermic laser to literally destroy unwanted fat cells through the skin. Dr. Scott explains that the light emitted through the treatment applicators has a high affinity for fat cells, which is why it is able to selectively target fat without harming superficial skin and surrounding tissue. Once fat cells are heated to a specific temperature during SculpSure® treatment, they become damaged and the body's natural response is to continue to break them down and flush them away as waste. Heating cycles during the treatment session are alternated with cooling cycles to maintain a constant therapeutic temperature and keep patients comfortable throughout the procedure. Dr. Scott points out that a single SculpSure® session has been clinically proven to reduce the treated fat volume by up to 24%, which is significant for such a quick, non-invasive procedure.

The United States Food and Drug Administration has approved SculpSure® for non-invasive fat removal from the flanks and abdomen, which are notoriously prone to developing areas of stubborn fat. The "love handles", belly, and lower abdomen are all common areas of concern among Dr. Scott's patients. Dr. Scott is often consulted by individuals who are generally fit and looking to remove resistant excess fat from these areas. For patients like these, and others with more prominent areas of excess fat, Dr. Scott notes that SculpSure® treatment may be an ideal non-surgical solution.

Depending on the specifics of each case, Dr. Scott can customize SculpSure® treatment plans to best suit the patient's needs. Dr. Scott says he may recommend repeated treatments in some instances to help the patient achieve greater fat reduction or address a larger treatment area. After the SculpSure® procedure, many patients return to their regular activities immediately. Dr. Scott explains that, within 6 to 12 weeks, patients can typically see a marked reduction in the volume of fat in the treatment area. Dr. Scott also mentions that the results of SculpSure® treatment are often even more apparent when new collagen fibers form during healing, which can tighten the skin and connective tissue, smoothing the area -- another effect of the unique tissue heating process of SculpSure®.

Ultimately, Dr. Scott says that SculpSure® will not replace liposuction at his practice, rather it will be added to the full complement of body contouring options available at The Plastic Surgery Center. As a Board Certified plastic surgeon performing a comprehensive array of cosmetic enhancement procedures, Dr. Scott believes that offering a wide variety of both surgical and non-surgical options gives him the ability to create highly customized treatment plans that can meet his patients' physical needs and aesthetic goals.
