Does Abdominal Sculpsure effect male fertility?

I would not expect SculpSure to affect fertility
SculpSure is an excellent technology for spot fat reduction and body contouring. The depth of penetration of the laser is 3cm which is enough to affect fat but not anything deeper. If the area to be treated is over your lower groin area (the inguinal canal), I would avoid treating that if there is not much fat since the vas deferens (which carries the sperm) runs through that particular area
SculpSure is Safe
SculpSure technology has been approved in US and Canada for the reduction of fat on the lower tummy, stomach and flanks. SculpSure is a non-invasive fat-reduction procedure that delivers permanent results in the targeted areas in about 6 weeks, with visible final results seen at 12 weeks. This is the time frame for your body to metabolize the eliminated fat cells through your metabolic system.
The laser technology does not affect the surrounding tissue cells or muscles. Because you are trying to have a baby and will be gaining weight during pregnancy, I would suggest perhaps waiting until after the baby to get SculpSure treatments to help you bounce back into your pre-pregnancy state. Other than that, there are no medical reasons that suggest SculpSure will interfere with your pregnancy agenda.
Fertility unaffected by SculpSure
Thanks for your question. There have been no studies that have indicated SculpSure affecting male or female fertility. Sculpsure is designed to destroy fat cells, nothing more. You may experience swelling and soreness post-treatment that may feel like a vigorous ab workout, but nothing more. Hope this helps. Best, Dr. Katz

There is no reason why Sculpsure should affect fertility
there is no medical reason why this should affect your fertility.
of course, no one is going to want to do this on someone who is pregnant, there is no reason to
think it will affect fertility in either sex.

Thank you for your question. I am not aware of any studies that have suggested fertility issues with SculpSure. The main side effect of SculpSure is a little soreness after the treatment. Otherwise, you should experience a great result. I suggest that you next consult in person with a board certified facial plastic surgeon.

Does Lower Abdominal SculpSure Affect Male Fertility?
Male Fertility and SculpSure
Thanks for your question. SculpSure was recently approved by the FDA for removal of fat using laser technology, but the use of lasers have been around for years. This particular laser will only go to the subcutaneous fat and will not penetrate any further than that little area that doesn't seem to go away. In fact, it will not remove visceral fat (fat around the organs). Therefore it will not go to the testicular area and decrease your sperm count or cause abnormalities in the sperm. You'll love the results of SculpSure. The treatment is only 25 minutes and most people will need 2 treatments. Best of luck for you and your new family to be!
