Sculpsure is safe
Deeper rods or tissues will not be heated with the laser treatment.

The unique aspect of Sculpsure is that it delivers laser energy which is absorbed by the adipocyte (fat cell). It works on the subcutaneous fat and the rod location will be much more posterior, but also, the laser wavelength would not be absorbed by metal.
If there are areas of scarring right where the applicator is placed, this may effect treatment, but it sounds like the surgical entry was in the back and the location that you want treated is abdominal fat so you should be set.
Hope that helps!
Yes, SculpSure is safe

SculpSure is OK with metal rods in the back
Thank you for your question. SculpSure is intended to address subcutaneous fat and is not designed to dive deep enough to interrupt your titanium rods. It is very important that you rely on the in-person consultation with a board certified facial plastic surgeon to determine your candidacy. Results are gradual as the body eliminates the unwanted fat over time.
