Will SculpSure work on a flabby stomach?

Without seeing a photo it will be difficult to determine if you are a good candidate or not.
SculpSure is a hyperthermic laser fat removal device that works by using laser energy into your areas that need improvement. It uses heat instead of cold (Cool Sculpting) to get rid of the fat cells. That heat also helps promote collagen for tighter skin. It can be problematic if you have a lot of loose skin and therefore may want to consider surgical options.
Consult with your doctor on determining what would work best for you.
Thank you for your question. SculpSure is not a tool for body loss. Rather, SculpSure is intended for body contouring to address and eliminate that stubborn subcutaneous fat that tends to be resistant to diet and exercise. I suggest that you move forward and consult with a board certified facial plastic surgeon to determine your candidacy. Pictures on this website are very helpful for us in posting our responses.

Thank you for your question.
Sculpsure is a noninvasive 1060nm diode laser treatment that removes up to 25% of stubborn fat in the treated area in 25 minutes.It is FDA approved for the abdomen and flanks. It is safe if you get pregnant in the future.
The body contouring effects are seen in as quick as six weeks with final results at 12 weeks.
The results are permanent as long as you maintain your weight and health.
The laser targets and destroys the fat cells only which are then naturally removed from the body. Since the laser does not affect the skin or muscle it can be used on all skin colors and there has been no reported incidents of burns when treated by a properly trained physician. It is protective since it alternates heating and cooling.
It has four applicators that can be customized to treat the areas of stubborn fat.
If a second treatment is needed we wait at least six weeks and usually closer to 12.
If you notice lumps after (which I've never seen) I would recommend massage. You should also alert your surgeon.
There is no downtime and you can resume your normal activities right after the treatment. There may be some soreness in the area for a few days for which you can take ibuprofen or tylenol. A cold compress can also be used.
Sculpsure is not used for skin tightening however some of our patients have seen this. If more skin tightening is needed we have combined this with thermi or Ulthera for a complete treatment. Sculpsure is recommended for stubborn areas of fat that are not being lost by diet and exercise. It is not a weight loss treatment
Since I have both a coolsculpting and sculpsure I am working on protocols of utilizing both of these depending upon what areas need to be treated and the response to the treatment.
I have used sculpsure on other areas other than the abdomen with very good results.
I also use a Vectra 3D imaging system to try and show people what their treatment areas could look like.
Since Sculpsure outcomes can be based on technique and experience, please see a board certified plastic surgeon that specializes body contouring to see if Sculpsure or other treatments are available to meet your goals.

Will SculpSure work on a flabby stomach?
SculpSure focuses on fat reduction without downtime. It is difficult to answer your question without a proper physical evaluation to determine if your area of concern is truly fat or loose skin. Patients with a BMI of 30 and patients wanting to contour problematic areas considered ideal candidates, although my practice treats patients with higher BMI who have been satisfied with their results. Your best bet would be to meet with a skilled and experienced surgeon who can evaluate your medical history and perform a physical evaluation to determine if SculpSure or another surgical option would be right for you.
