You may be one of those people who dread the sunshine and warmer weather of summer because it means shorts and swimsuits, and that means those stubborn areas of fat that you can’t seem to get rid of will be on display for the world to see. You’ve tried exercise and dieting – and good for you for doing so – but sometimes, certain areas of the body simply won’t respond to such efforts. You’d love to get rid of these fat deposits before summer is in full swing, but liposuction or other invasive procedures that can do that may not sound appealing to you or you may not be a good candidate for such treatments. The good news is that we can get your body ready for summer and get rid of that fat with safe, innovative, and effective non-invasive body sculpting procedures.
At Dr. Mariano Busso’s Miami-Coconut Grove aesthetic dermatology clinic, we offer three fantastic non-invasive body sculpting treatments that will have you enjoying your firmer, more toned body all summer long and beyond.
Most of your body is fat (approx. 25%) and muscle (42% male/36% female). Many procedures deliver a slimmer look by reducing fat, but the underlying muscles are equally important. Increasing muscle tone improves body contour by reducing laxity and adds to a healthier aesthetic appearance.
The EMSCULPT is the only procedure that can help both women and men burn fat and build muscle. We are particularly proud of this procedure, as Dr. Mariano Busso was part of BTL Aesthetics’ EMSCULPT development team and was the first physician in Florida to offer this exciting new technology to patients.
EMSCULPT® uses High-Intensity Focused Electro-Magnetic (HIFEM) field technology to induce short bursts of powerful muscle contractions that lead to increased muscle density, decreased volume, better definition, and improved tone. It’s particularly effective on the abdomen and buttocks.
Coolsculpting can reduce fat on the abdomen, lumbar, hips, inner thighs, knees, saddlebags, arms and ankles. We apply an applicator to the treatment area which vacuums tissue between two cooling panels for 30 to 60 minutes. This process is also referred to as cryolipolysis, which selectively targets fatty tissue without harming the dermis.
Based on recent studies, patients with small fat deposits in the flanks or abdomen saw reductions between 14 and 25.5 percent. Side effects include erythema and sensory changes that resolve shortly after treatment.
The SculpSure device uses diode laser energy to target fat in the abdominal and flank regions. To prevent overheating, two flat non-suction cooling applicators are used to generate heat in the adipose tissue layer without damaging the skin.
A study of 76 patients who underwent SculpSure on either the abdomen or the flank with an average reduction of 3.1 +/- 1.7 mm and 2.6 mm, respectively. Eighty-five percent of patients within the abdomen group and 86 percent within the flank group were extremely satisfied or satisfied with the results.
