Even with strict diet and exercise, some bulging areas of fat are impossible to get rid of. Isolated fatty deposits along the stomach and belt-line often prove unresponsive to lifestyle changes. Fortunately, Dr. Leonard Miller brings patients in the Boston area an exciting and effective option to eliminate these undesirable and unattractive fatty areas without surgery, using the ground-breaking technique, SculpSure.
SculpSure is an innovative, noninvasive fat elimination procedure using light-based laser energy to reduce stubborn fatty tissue. The hyperthermic laser treatment is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat difficult areas such as the love handles (flanks) and the abdomen. SculpSure is safe for the surrounding, healthy tissues, and can be successfully used by patients of every skin type and ethnicity.
With four, independent applicators, SculpSure gently warms the targeted area. While safe for healthy tissue, the concentrated heat damages fat cells. Over the weeks following a SculpSure treatment, the impaired fat cells die off, and are naturally eliminated through the body’s lymphatic system. In as little as six weeks, the benefits of treatment will begin to appear. Each SculpSure procedure can provide up to a 24% reduction in fatty tissue, which will be fully apparent three months after treatment. Since SculpSure requires no anesthesia, no incisions, and no downtime, patients are back to their busy schedule immediately.
Benefits of SculpSure include:
- Each treatment takes 25 minutes
- No anesthesia is necessary
- No incisions or sutures needed
- No downtime required
- Safe for all skin types
- Permanent, natural-looking results
Dr. Leonard Miller is part of a select group of cosmetic surgeons offering the cutting-edge SculpSure procedure in Boston, Massachusetts. As one of the east coast’s leading plastic surgeons, Dr. Miller brings patients the safest and most effective body sculpting results available today. Each procedure is custom tailored to the individual patient’s unique set of aesthetic goals, and can be combined with additional techniques for optimal, rejuvenating results.
The SculpSure Procedure
The SculpSure procedure at the Boston Center for Facial Rejuvenation takes 25 minutes, performed in one of our private treatment rooms. While no anesthesia is necessary, the SculpSure procedure can be mildly uncomfortable. With each intermittent increase in current, patients will feel a gentle tingling and warming sensation. However, most patients find the discomfort of SculpSure easily manageable.
To begin, the provider will determine the target treatment area. With four contouring trays, SculpSure can be adjusted to treat multiple locations, such as the abdomen and the flanks (love handles). Once the applicators are in place, patients are able to read, talk on the phone, or rest during their session. In less than half an hour, the SculpSure procedure will be complete, and patients can get back to their daily routine.
There is no downtime required after a SculpSure treatment. Patients are free to return to work or school, and get back to their normal exercise routine, immediately after the procedure. SculpSure works well as a ‘lunch time’ procedure, getting patients back to their desk in less than an hour.
The benefits of SculpSure are not immediate. However, in four to six weeks, patients will begin to notice the results gradually beginning to appear. As the body eliminates the unwanted cells, the benefits will continue to improve, providing up to a 24% reduction in fatty tissue. After two to three months, the full results from a SculpSure treatment can be seen.
In most cases, one SculpSure session can effectively eliminate stubborn, isolated bulges of fat. However, those looking for additional fat elimination can safely schedule a second SculpSure session in two to three months.

What areas can be treated with SculpSure?
SculpSure is FDA-approved to treat isolated fatty tissue along the abdomen and flanks. At the Boston Center for Facial Rejuvenation, the SculpSure treatment can also be used to eliminate fat on the thighs, upper arms, and knees.
Am I a good candidate for the SculpSure procedure?
If you have areas of stubborn fat that are not responsive to diet and exercise, then SculpSure may be for you. Candidates should be in overall good health and fully understand the SculpSure treatment process.
Is more than one SculpSure treatment necessary?
Unlike other noninvasive fat elimination systems, SculpSure only requires one treatment. No follow-up sessions are necessary. However, an additional SculpSure session can safely be performed in two to three months, for additional fat elimination.
When can I return to my normal activities after SculpSure?
SculpSure does not require any downtime. Patients are able to return to work and school, as well as exercise, immediately after the treatment.
When will I see my SculpSure results?
Benefits from SculpSure are not immediate. During treatment, SculpSure’s light-energy will heat up fat cells, causing them to disengage and die off. The body’s lymphatic system will then eliminate the unwanted tissue. As this occurs, the results will slowly become more noticeable. In two to three months, the full benefits of a SculpSure treatment can be seen.
