Melt Away Stubborn Fat

Despite our best efforts, we all have those areas of fat which just don’t seem to respond to diet and exercise. Areas such as the lower belly, upper belly, love handles, back, under the chin, and inner and outer thighs are common areas in which excess fat may be stored and accumulated over time.

We may even notice that as we lose weight throughout the rest of the body, these areas appear unchanged or like they are losing fat disproportionately slowly in comparison to other areas. SculpSure is a great way to maximize your fitness results so you can realize the full effect of your hard work without those frustrating pockets of stubborn fat, and stay motivated on your fitness journey. Tri Valley Plastic Surgery is a trusted provider of SculpSure in Oakland.

What to Expect

SculpSure uses a process called lipolysis to break down fat within the body. As fat within the treatment area is heated with lasers which reach up to 116.6°F, fat cells are melted away and surrounding tissues are left undamaged.

When you arrive for your Oakland SculpSure treatment, you will be seated comfortably in a reclined position and your highly experienced technician will mark the areas of the body which are to be treated. During your treatment, a thermal belt will be applied to the treatment area. The machine will alternate between heat and cool for approximately 25 minutes until treatment is complete. Treatment is comfortable and you may nap, read, listen to your favorite podcast, check your email, or play your favorite game.



A reduction in fat from SculpSure may be visible as early as six weeks after treatment, though full results take approximately 12 weeks to appear. According to study results, one SculpSure session results in an average of 24% reduction of fat in treated areas. Results can be maintained through a healthy diet, exercise, and follow-up SculpSure treatments as needed.


SculpSure involves zero recovery time. Many patients receive SculpSure treatment during their lunch break due to its noninvasiveness and quick application. It is recommended that patients massage treated areas twice a day for two weeks to minimize drainage and promote lymphatic drainage. Direct sun exposure should be avoided one week after treatment. If sun exposure cannot be avoided, it’s recommended to apply high SPF sunscreen and protect the area as much as possible.

What are the side effects of SculpSure?

Can eliminated fat cells return?

What is the difference between SculpSure and CoolSculpting?

What are the side effects of SculpSure?

Immediately upon treatment, few patients may notice mild swelling, redness, or tingling in the treatment area. However, these symptoms rarely last more than a few hours. Following the procedure, some patients may experience some soreness, stiffness, or bruising in treatment areas.

Can eliminated fat cells return?

No. Once fat cells have been destroyed, they cannot grow back and the body cannot produce additional fat cells. However, it is important for patients to maintain their results with consistent exercise and a healthy diet. Though new fat cells will not appear, existing fat cells will continue to grow and shrink with weight change normally.

What is the difference between SculpSure and CoolSculpting?

While both processes effectively eliminate excess fat in stubborn areas of the body, involve no recovery time, and produce permanent results, there are some significant differences between the two. SculpSure uses heat to melt away fat; CoolSculpting freezes fat away. Also, SculpSure has the ability to treat more areas of the body. CoolSculpting is most effective at treating areas of the body that may be pinched. SculpSure can eliminate fat in pinchable and non-pinchable areas, making it slightly more versatile.
