Body Contouring Q & A

What is body contouring?

Body contouring is a term that refers to any procedure that a doctor uses to remove unwanted fat from your body and contour your curves.

With body contouring, you can target pockets of fat that are hard to eliminate, even after you’ve reached your ideal healthy weight. Such areas include:

  • Under the chin
  • Belly
  • Love handles
  • Thighs
  • Back

At Stuart Lerner, MD, Dr. Lerner noninvasively contours your body using SculpSure® laser treatment.

What is SculpSure laser treatment?

SculpSure laser treatment is a nonsurgical, FDA-approved laser fat-removal treatment. SculpSure destroys fat pockets by heating fat cells until they’re structurally damaged, after which the body naturally processes and eliminates them over the course of a few months.

Once damaged, fat cells do not regenerate. However, if you gain weight after your procedure, your body will produce new fat cells.

SculpSure treatment with Dr. Lerner takes about 25 minutes. Each treatment session destroys about 24% of the fat cells you’re targeting, so you’ll need a number of treatments to achieve your desired results.

How long do results from SculpSure body contouring take?

You usually begin to see changes after about six weeks. Six weeks is the approximate time that your lymphatic system needs to start eliminating damaged fat cells. You typically see full results after about 12 weeks.

Is body contouring with SculpSure right for me?

The only way to know whether body contouring with SculpSure is right for you is by consulting with Dr. Lerner. However, in general, SculpSure body contouring might be a good fit for you if you:

  • Have a stable, healthy weight
  • Struggle to get rid of problem fat


Note that SculpSure body contouring isn’t a weight-loss solution. SculpSure is a treatment for those who reached their target weight and wellness level through diet and exercise, but can’t seem to get rid of problem fat pockets.
