Body Sculpting Q&A

What is body sculpting?

Body sculpting is a minimally invasive medical procedure to recontour your body by eliminating fat and smoothing out your curves. During your treatment, your experienced providers apply energy to carefully targeted spots on your body to destroy fatty tissue, which is then gently suctioned away.

How is Smartlipo used in body sculpting?

Smartlipo is a cutting-edge tool that provides lipolysis (fat melting) energy using either advanced laser technology or radiofrequency to melt fat away and create a slimmer body profile.

Your provider uses Smartlipo to help shape your body and get rid of those unwanted pockets of fat. This works well anywhere from your face and neck to your torso, arms, legs, and ankles.

Who’s a good candidate for body sculpting?

You’re a good candidate for body sculpting if you want to treat multiple areas of your body. Some of the most common treatment areas include:

  • Tummy
  • Back
  • Abdomen
  • Neck
  • Thighs (inner and outer)
  • Knees
  • Hips
  • Buttocks
  • Chest (men)


You should be in good physical and mental health and close to your ideal weight. You’re also a good candidate if you don’t have a large amount of fat or excessively sagging skin.

Body sculpting might be the perfect solution if you’re healthy, active, and close to your ideal weight but still can’t reach your ultimate goal despite exercise and healthy eating.

What can I expect during body sculpting?Your provider uses a medical-grade laser to essentially melt away the fat and make it easier to remove. Treatment time varies but usually takes up to three hours.

You’ll feel minimal discomfort during the body sculpting procedure, but you may feel a little sore after the anesthesia wears off, much like after a heavy workout. The compression garment provided by Lehigh Valley Weight Loss will help ease your discomfort.

There’s very little downtime required after your procedure. You may be advised to take it easy for a day or two, but you can return to work the next day if necessary. You should notice an improvement in your shape immediately following your session, with continued improvements as the swelling goes down over the next few weeks.

How long do body sculpting results last?

The results from your treatment are permanent as long as you don’t gain excessive weight. You should continue to follow your healthy diet and exercise program to maintain your trimmer look.
