SculpSure™– Laser Lipolysis


Worcester plastic surgeon Dr. Deborah Ekstrom offers the world's first hypertheric laser treatment, SculpSure, for nonsurgical fat reduction. SculpSure is the world’s first FDA-cleared laser treatment for non-invasive lipolysis of the flanks and abdomen. It’s a state-of-the-art, controlled light-based technology, ideal for patients looking to get rid of stubborn fat. With no need for incisions and little to no downtime, SculpSure laser lipolysis eliminates stubborn fat deposits without surgery. At our plastic surgery office, our patients love their results, which include a slimmer, sleeker contour and a healthier tone. Unlike traditional liposuction, which requires surgical incisions and recovery time, SculpSure uses special frequencies to destroy fat cells up to 24%. To learn more about this amazing fat reduction technology, call our Worcester office for more information.


Both men and women who have small amounts of subcutaneous fat around the abdomen and flanks that just won't go away with a healthy diet and exercise program are candidates for this procedure. The ideal candidate for SculpSure typically targets a smaller area for fat reduction. Patients with a larger amount of fat will want to discuss weight loss prior to this treatment as SculpSure is not to be used as a weight loss tool. In addition, patients should have good skin elasticity and be in good health. For best results, Dr. Ekstrom may recommend a patient be at a specific weight range or body mass index (BMI) if weight needs to be lost.

What to Expect

SculpSure treatments take place in our treatment room during an office visit. Most treatments last about 30 minutes depending on the size of the area being treated, as well as the number of areas. In most cases, Dr. Ekstrom can treat up to 4 areas on the body during your treatment session. The energy from the laser will only impact the targeted treatment areas and will provide very little discomfort. Your body will continue to break down the fat cells within the body and flush them out during the following 12 weeks. If you are comfortable with resuming your normal activities after your SculpSure treatment, it is okay to carry on with your exercise regimes and other strenuous activities within about 24 - 48 hours.

Anticipated Results

SculpSure is different than many of the other lasers on the market today. Unlike other fat reduction systems, this treatment can provide you with visible results after a single application. This treatment is rapid in making changes in the way your body looks. Also, it offers the ContactCool feature to make the session more comfortable.
