About truSculpt 3D

truSculpt 3D is a nonsurgical fat reduction and body contouring treatment that uses advanced RF energy to eliminate fat cells. It can be used on almost any area on the body but is most commonly used on the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, flanks, and back. This treatment is not only designed to target fat cells in large areas but can reduce circumference in smaller areas. Board-certified plastic surgeons Drs. Peter Chang and Ankur Mehta are excited to offer this revolutionary fat reduction treatment to Houston, TX men and women. If you are frustrated with the shape of your body and have not been able to achieve the look you want with diet and exercise alone, then truSculpt 3D may be right for you. Call Timeless Plastic Surgery in Sugar Land, TX to learn more. 

Ideal Candidates

Ideal candidates for truSculpt 3D are men and women who:

  • Have a body mass of 38 or lower
  • Have stubborn fat pockets that are resistant to exercise
  • Are not pregnant or trying to get pregnant
  • Do not have metal implants, a pacemaker, or internal defibrillator

Procedure Technique

The truSculpt 3D body sculpting procedure utilizes a multi-dimensional approach to effectively and safely reducing fat cells. Once you are seated comfortably in one of our private treatment rooms, the handheld device will be glided along the target area(s). truSculpt 3D uses specific wavelengths (radio frequency technology) to heat and reduce fat cells. There is no discomfort associated with this procedure and most patients report it feels similar to that of a therapeutic hot stone massage. truSculpt 3D can treat up to four different areas in one session. Treatments usually take 15 – 30 minutes per target area. 

What to Expect

You may experience a little tenderness, redness, or mild irritation afterward, but these symptoms will subside gradually. truSculpt 3D does not disrupt or harm the skin as it specifically targets fat cells. It focuses on dimension, definition, and depth to tighten the skin and reduce fat cells. The results often decrease circumference by 1 – 3 inches and diminish fat cells by 25 – 35% in just one treatment. Multiple sessions may be performed at 6 – 8-week intervals, but Drs. Chang and Mehta can provide more specific recommendations during a consult.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does it cost?
The expense of truSculpt 3D varies based upon the number of sessions recommended and the quantity of fat that you wish to have removed. At your consultation, we'll discuss your cosmetic goals to decipher the most appropriate course of action to achieve those results. We'll also speak with you regarding any out-of-pocket expenses.

How does truSculpt 3D work?
truSculpt 3D uses a controlled temperature system to destroy fat cells in predetermined body parts for treatment. Basically, it heats the cells to reduce their size. The cells are broken up by your body and flushed out naturally, resulting in a diminished circumference. 

Is truSculpt 3D safe?
truSculpt 3D is a noninvasive, topical procedure where the apparatus is applied to your skin’s surface. With this procedure, there's no need for a healing period. You might notice some minor swelling and discoloration immediately following the session, but that usually subsides in about one week.

How many sessions will I need?
The number of sessions required to attain your desired outcome will be determined during your consultation. For many patients, just one treatment is sufficient, while others might require more therapy sessions depending on the quantity of fat being addressed. The number of sessions depends on your aesthetic objectives and if you have larger layers of fat in target sections.

Can the fat cells grow back?
While the fat cells will not regrow, brand new fat cells could form. In addition, weight gain can greatly influence your results. So in order to keep your desired effects, it's necessary to stick to a proper diet plan and workout regimen.

Contour Your Body

There is no such thing as the perfect body and each of us has things we wish to change, such as specific areas of fat that will not respond to exercise and a healthy diet.
