A slim and toned appearance is a desire shared by both men and women. Unfortunately, stubborn pockets of fat accumulate on the abdomen, hips, and thighs, and these pockets are often impossible to get rid of with regular diet and exercise. While there are several surgical options available to reduce stubborn fat, not everyone is ready to commit to surgery or is able to set aside the time required for recovery. For these patients, Dr. Careaga is proud to offer SculpSure® at his state-of-the-art facility. SculpSure® is the first light-based body contouring system available for the reduction of fat. If you want to enjoy a slimmer and trimmer contour without surgery or downtime, then SculpSure® may be for you.

SculpSure® Treatment Areas
A “pooched” abdomen is an issue shared by many men and women and can be one of the most challenging areas to target with diet and exercise. Between aging, pregnancy, and childbirth, the abdomen is a typical trouble spot for patients and is one of the most desirable areas of treatment. SculpSure® on the abdomen can finally reduce those stubborn fat cells to result in a firmer core.
Although the name may sound appealing, “love handles” are anything but, and they can negatively affect self-image and your confidence to wear tight clothes. SculpSure® targets fat cells in the flanks to provide smoother and more trim hips.
Fat can accumulate on the inner and outer thighs and can be difficult to get rid of. SculpSure® can smooth and tighten all areas of the upper thighs to reveal sculpted legs.
SculpSure® offers a permanent reduction of fat cells on the back to reveal a slimmer contour.
Under The Chin
SculpSure® is now FDA-approved for treatment of the submental area, (the area beneath the chin). This technology can now help in the removal of a double chin.
There is no anesthetic or incision required for this procedure. During the treatment, you may feel a deep warmth or tingling sensation; however, this is combated with intermittent cooling so that your procedure remains comfortable. You will not experience any pain or discomfort following the treatment session.
SculpSure® is not a surgical procedure and, therefore, will not create scarring.
The cost of your SculpSure® treatment depends on the number of areas treated and the number of treatments required. During your initial consultation, the staff at Careaga Plastic Surgery will provide you with an accurate cost estimate.
SculpSure® is entirely non-invasive, and there is no downtime for this treatment. You can return to work and your normal activities immediately following your SculpSure® session.

Frequently Asked Questions
When will I see my results?
The fat cells destroyed in this procedure are gradually eliminated from the body. Results become noticeable at six weeks, with optimal results usually seen at 12 weeks.
How many treatments will I need?
Most patients require multiple treatments to reach their desired results. The number of treatments needed will depend on the amount of correction desired. During your consultation, the staff at Careaga Plastic Surgery will advise you on the number of treatments needed for your goal.
How long are the treatments?
Treatment sessions are quick and comfortable. The SculpSure® procedure is performed in as little as 25 minutes per treatment area, and each treatment session can destroy up to 24 percent of fat cells in the treated area.
How does SculpSure® work?
During your SculpSure® session, SculpSure® frames are secured over the treatment area, and applicators are placed on the frames. From here, targeted laser energy heats the fat cells under the skin’s surface without damaging the skin. By heating these cells, the structural integrity is damaged; over the following weeks and months, your body will naturally eliminate the fat.
Will my results last?
The fat cells destroyed in this procedure are gone for good and will not regenerate. However, remaining fat cells can still grow. To ensure long-lasting results, you should maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle.
