Banish That Muffin Top for Good: SculpSure

We all have problem areas where we just can’t seem to lose weight no matter how much diet and exercise we incorporate. The abdomen often holds stubborn pockets of fat that need special attention. SculpSure® is the world’s first FDA-cleared body-contouring procedure shown to be effective in treating the abdominal areas known as love handles or muffin tops. OBGYN Care, Houston’s top-ranked gynecology and obstetrics practice, uses the SculpSure body contouring system to remove unwanted fat from tough-to-lose spots.

How does SculpSure work?

The SculpSure system uses a controlled laser energy to deliver heat to fat cells in targeted areas. As the fat cells are heated, they are broken down in about 25 minutes and eliminated through the lymphatic system. Once the fat cells are eliminated, they do not return — leaving a smoother and shapelier body. As an added advantage, the heat from the laser promotes the production of new collagen and elastin in the skin. 

The benefits of SculpSure


SculpSure is a noninvasive treatment that uses a high-end laser to destroy fat cells without harming the surrounding skin. There is no pain involved, no risk of infection, and no worry of complications related to anesthesia. Because SculpSure doesn't use incisions, there is no risk of scars or skin damage. During the procedure, you may experience a warmth or tingling sensation that subsides immediately.

Treat multiple areas

Unlike other treatments, SculpSure is safe and effective in treating multiple areas at the same time. Areas where stubborn body fat tends to accumulate include: 

No downtime

Because SculpSure treatments are noninvasive, there is no downtime. Most people can return to their normal activities immediately after treatment.

Fast treatment

Depending on the area or areas being treated, the SculpSure body contouring usually takes under 30 minutes to complete.

Visible Results

Most patients have seen visible results from their SculpSure treatment within two to three months.

Long-term results

When the fat cells are destroyed by the SculpSure laser and eliminated, those cells will not return. 

FDA Approved

SculpSure is an FDA-approved procedure that was found to be completely safe during the approval process. 

If you're ready to banish your muffin top for good, you still have questions about SculpSure, or you have a few more questions about your body-contouring goals, call OBGYN Care or schedule an appointment using the online booking tool.
