Even with the best in diet and exercise, it can be extremely difficult to lose fat where you want it. Because of the way the female body stores and carries fat, many women struggle with stubborn fat deposits especially after life events like weight loss or pregnancy. Liposuction has been the traditional option for fat reduction, but there are now more non-invasive body sculpting options than ever. truSculpt® iD is one option offered at our New York City office.
What is truSculpt iD?
truSculpt iD is a revolutionary body sculpting treatment that requires no incisions or downtime. It works by targeting fat cells deep under the skin with monopolar radiofrequency energy, generating heat to therapeutically damage fat cells so they can be naturally removed by the body. Over time, this process reduces fat pockets and produces definition in areas where you previously struggled to achieve your goals with diet and exercise.

Am I a Candidate?
truSculpt iD is an excellent option for women looking to address stubborn fat in all those traditional trouble spots like the stomach, flanks, bra lines, thighs, underarms, and chin. In one 15-minute session, truSculpt iD can reduce up to 24% of fat in a treated area. And unlike other available body sculpting technologies, truSculpt iD had the added benefit of a skin tightening effect once the underlying fat is destroyed.
During a consultation with our expert team, we’ll discuss your goals for aesthetic treatments and how you can benefit. For best results, we recommend you be at or near your ideal weight for a stable amount of time. You should also assess whether you plan on becoming pregnant in the future since this can cause you to gain weight back.
What Happens During Treatment?
truSculpt iD treatments can take as little as fifteen minutes per treatment area. Once you’re relaxed and ready, the treatment applicators will be applied to your treatment areas and you’ll relax while the technology generates gentle heat. Most patients compare it to a hot stone massage. Once finished, you can return home immediately.
What Can I Expect Afterward?
You can return to your regular schedule right away after truSculpt iD treatments, albeit with some redness and sensitivity. Each treatment can produce as much as 24% in fat reduction, but many patients require only one treatment session. You’ll see improvement in your treatment areas over the course of 12 weeks after your appointment while your body flushes out the affected fat cells through your normal metabolic processes. The result is contoured, defined areas without downtime or recovery, meaning you can get right back to living your best life.
