Lumps after SculpSure
Lumps after SculpSure is totally Normal
Hi, your lumps are totally normal and simply represent collection of dead cells under your skin that will now be slowly eliminated by your body over the next 6 -12 weeks. I recommend to all my patients to gently massage the treatment area twice a day for 2 weeks to help your body to eliminate them, Also, drinking a lot of water is also very important. Just be patient and they will go away. Best of luck, Dr.Avaliani
Lumps or nodules as I call them are always a possibility after getting SculpSure. It is completely normal, we recommend massaging the nodule and with time it will go away.

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 her 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.
