Second SculpSure treatment
Thank you for your question. You should ask your surgeon if they believe that you are ready for SculpSure. It is best to wait until all of the swelling has subsided. Meanwhile, you should next consult in person with a board certified facial plastic surgeon whose office has the SculpSure equipment. Keep in ind that you are still within the horizons for your late November and early January dates with the 6-12 week post op horizon with SculpSure.

Assuming no healing complications, and complete return of skin sensation, SculpSure treatments can be started around 12 weeks.

SculpSure After Surgery
After a surgery the area operated on, similar to an area treated with Sculpsure, has to heal. That process takes at least three months. If at around four to six weeks after the surgery, enough healing as taken place to go back to your activities but when there is still swelling present I would not recommend your second treatment yet. Consult with your treating physician for the SculpSure and have them examine you prior to going in for that second treatment.
Depends on which are you are treating
It is not uncommon to have some mild swelling in the proximity of the incision sites for several months after surgery. I certainly think it is ok to move forward with Sculpsure for your upcoming beach vacation in November (remember it may take up to 12 weeks to see results). I would stay away from the incision areas and focus on the swimsuit visuals. Try on the suit that you want to wear and bring that in with you to the doctor. It may end up being the flanks etc that you want to treat with Sculpsure.
How long to wait for next SculpSure treatment?
Thanks for your question. I hope you are recovering well. I recommend you wait about 3 months to recover from your sugary before having your next SculpSure treatment. At that point, most of your post-hysterectomy swelling should be gone. I recommend you discuss this with your Ob-Gyn as well as the physician treating you with SculpSure. I hope this helps.
