Does SculpSure help diabetics to get rid of belly fat?

SculpSure & Diabetes
It is perfectly safe to get SculpSure if you are a diabetic. However, that does not mean that you are necessarily a good candidate for SculpSure. It is best of patients who are at a maintainable goal weight and who have stubborn pockets of fat. It is really about body contouring and is not a weight loss procedure. Get assessed in person to see whether or not this is the right choice for you.
Belly fat and diabetics
Thank you for your question! It's an important one! There is no contraindication to treating diabetic patients with SculpSure. However, a good clinician will be able to tell what kind of fat is making up your belly. SculpSure will treat fat that is outside the muscle - the fat you can pinch. Many people that have Type 2 Diabetes also have fat underneath the muscle, within the abdominal cavity - this is called visceral fat. SculpSure will NOT treat visceral fat. Visceral fat can be treated with a low-carbohydrate diet and exercise. However, SculpSure combined with a proper diet plan and exercise would be the perfect combination!
It will decrease external belly fat but not fat that is behind your abdominal muscles
Sculpsure (and also Smartlipo and all other types of liposuction) can decrease the fat on your abdomen which is external to the muscles. Many men will have large stomachs that stick out, yet you cannot pinch any fat. this means that the fat is internal and behind the muscle wall and is not amenable to any treatment except diet and exercise.
Even if your fat is external, it is unlikely that enough fat will be melted that it will benefit your diabetes very much. you probably will have to be stricter with your diet and your exercising and lose weight to benefit your diabetes. Remember you Sculpsure will decrease fat but not enough to seriously affect your weight.

There are no supported research studies that should prevent diabetic patients from getting SculpSure treatments. Consult with a board certified plastic surgeon to see if SculpSure is the right treatment for your fat reduction goals.
Thank you for your question. SculpSure is safe for diabetics because it is a non-invasive surgery with virtually no side effects, except for a little soreness post-treatment. I suggest that you next consult in person with a board certified facial plastic surgeon.
SculpSure is safe in diabetics
SculpSure for Diabetes
SculpSure is very safe and affective in diabetics. Because it does not puncture the skin the risk of infection is negligible and that makes it very safe for diabietcs. Because it only treats the pinchable fat out side the muscular wall of the abdomen it will not reduce the cardiovascular risks associated with diabetes and intra abdominal (behind the muscle).
