Thank you for your question. There are no restrictions with flying after SculpSure. The recovery through SculpSure is excellent. Many patients can return to work immediately after the short session. Always consult with a board certified facial plastic surgeon.

Best wishes,

Flying after SculpSure

You can absolutely fly after your SculpSure treatment.  The only real contraindication post treatment is tanning.  SculpSure is an excellent treatment for non-invasive fat reduction.

You can definitely fly after Sculpsure

it is perfectly safe to fly after Sculpsure. You are not given general anesthesia for Sculpsure so there is no reason that flying would be a problem.

Contraindications with SculpSure

SculpSure is a noninvasive 25 minute body contouring treatment to help treat stubborn areas of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. After the treatment you may be slightly tender but there is no downtime and no restriction on activity post treatment.

SculpSure Safety

Hi there,

SculpSure technology has no associated downtime or recovery period so it is safe to fly after getting a treatment. Some patients may experience temporary redness, tenderness, swelling and tissue firmness on the treatment sites. Tenderness may last up to two weeks. Patients are encouraged to gently massage the area twice a day for 5 to 10 minutes and are able to use a cold compress and/or acetaminophen to help relieve any discomfort. 

Many people resume normal daily activities including exercise immediately post treatment.

SculpSure and Flying

Thank you for your question.

There is no downtime following the SculpSure procedure and so it is safe to fly directly after. Unlike other procedures that require a bit of downtime, SculpSure  requires none- so we allow our patients to go to the gym directly after the treatment and to resume normal activity.

Hope this helps, safe travels!

Flying after Sculpsure treatment

One of the major advantages of SculpSure is that it is non-invasive without any downtime or activity restrictions after treatment. This includes flying. You may have some minor discomfort in the area treated, but there should be no major problems. Good luck.
