Not Ideal Candidate for SculpSure
SculpSure technology target stubborn unwanted fat around the abdomen and flanks. SculpSure is indicated for patients with Body Mass Index (BMI) of 30 or under, or patients who are within 10 -20 lbs of their ideal weight. Unfortunately, SculpSure would not be an effective treatment for someone like yourself who has greater subcutaneous fat than the recommendations indicated for SculpSure treatments.
Consult with a board certified plastic surgeon to see what the best options would be for your fat loss goals.
Who is a good candidate for SculpSure?
No. You want your BMI to be below 30. At your current weight, SculpSure would not deliver the benefits that you desire.
Thank you for your question. SculpSure aims to target subcutaneous fat. I think that it would be an ideal complementary treatment for you after you utilize the benefits of a tummy tuck. Please consult with a board certified plastic surgeon to create a treatment plan based on the procedures that are most ideal for your body.

Not a SculpSure Candidate
From your pictures it appears you would be far better served with an abdominoplasty. (Tummy Tuck). As other doctors have answered the excess skin you have would not be addressed by SculpSure. See a board certified plastic surgeon for a more complete discussion of your body contouring options.

Sculpsure is best for patients who have a normal BMI (Body Mass Index) or close to normal ( in the overweight category). To see significant improvement at your BMI would necessitate many areas and repeat treatments in the same area. And Sculpsure would not be able to reduce the excess skin in those areas. Therefore, I would advise you to see a plastic surgeon for evalulation for an abdominoplasty procedure.
Need to improve your BMI first for optimal results
Thanks for your photo and question! Sculpsure is a really great new procedure, but the fat reduction is only about 20% per treatment area. I don't think you would notice much difference unless you did several treatments, which would be very costly. I would first explore ways to achieve some traditional weight loss, and then reward yourself with Sculpsure if you can reach your weight loss goal!!
Hello and thank you for your question and posting pictures. Unfortunately you are not a good candidate for SculpSure. Although you would see some results with SculpSure it would take many treatments and would be very costly. Best, Dr Faraz
