What to Expect When You Come In for Fat Reduction

Have you been working hard to lose weight but you're still stuck with lumps and bumps of fat? We have good news! There’s a way to lose stubborn fat without going under the knife.

Keri Ingrassia-Squiers, DO, FACP at Hackettstown Medical Primary Care Partners Affiliate in northwest New Jersey, offers an effective fat-reduction treatment called WarmSculpting™ treatments with SculpSure®

Read on to learn what to expect when you come in for this popular procedure.

Fat reduction with SculpSure

When you lose weight, you still have the same number of fat cells, but they’re smaller in size. Fat reduction actually destroys the fat cells so your body can naturally eliminate them over time.

Fat reduction with SculpSure is noninvasive. That means there’s no cutting or bleeding and you’ll have a smoother recovery. You can expect a fat reduction of up to 24% in the treated area.

How does it work?

The heat from a laser raises the temperature of your fat cells in the targeted area, causing them to die. Then, your body’s lymphatic system absorbs the dead cells and eliminates them as waste with your urine.

Does it hurt?

You may feel a tingling sensation, but you shouldn’t be in pain. There’s also no chance of overheating or getting burned because there’s a cooling mechanism that turns on every so often to keep your skin safe. Your appointment will take about a half-hour.

You may have redness, mild swelling, or bruising for a few days. But, you should be able to resume your normal activities after leaving the office. 

How many treatments will I need? 

Most people need a few treatments spaced a few months apart to achieve their desired results. Of course, it all depends on which body part is being treated too. For example, you may only need one treatment on your chin but three or four on your love handles or abdomen. 

You’ll see the best results anywhere from three-to-six months after your final treatment. This is because it takes a while for your body to break down and remove fat cells.


Even though you'll achieve fat reduction, some fat cells will remain. This means you'll have to maintain your healthy diet and active lifestyle, otherwise, those remaining fat cells could expand.
