One of the most exciting developments in aesthetics, SculpSure is an FDA-cleared system for non-invasive body sculpting. The process involves the use of light energy that damages the fat cells, while leaving the other tissue intact and undamaged.

Dr. Merriman has selected this treatment to offer her patients, as it is effective, non-invasive, and produces excellent results in body contouring.

How Does SculpSure Work?

To resculpt your body, it is often necessary to remove excess fat. Liposuction will never go out of style, but newer technologies can produce a similar result. The treatment requires only about half an hour to complete. It is an appropriate way to reduce unwanted fat on the abdomen, love handles, flanks, bra fat, inner or outer thighs, or beneath the chin.

The system works by delivering laser light through the skin that heats and damages fat cells, with a cooling feature that makes the process comfortable. The sensation feels like deep heating and is not exceptionally uncomfortable to experience for most patients.

Benefits of SculpSure

There are many benefits to this advanced treatment, including:

  • Non-invasive, non-surgical
  • No incision, so staples, no stitches
  • No recovery time
  • Fast – several areas treated in one appointment
  • No bruising

What Does SculpSure Feel Like?

The treatment is very easy to experience, and most people find it comfortable, or only mildly uncomfortable. Four applicators are placed on your body to target the areas that need fat reduction. The sensation is alternating heat and cold. Once your treatment is complete, you are free to return to your normal activities without restriction – a huge benefit!

How Long Will It Take to See Results?

Patients are scheduled for two treatments six weeks apart. Some areas will need three treatments. The fat cells affected by the laser energy emitted by the SculpSure system must be naturally shed by the body. Typically, it will require about three months after the last treatment for the full effect to be revealed, with a slow slimming and trimming of your figure as the weeks pass. Each treatment reduces fat by about 24 percent. You may choose to have several treatments if you have larger pockets of unwanted fat.

The Truth About Fat

While you may believe you are gaining fat when a body area grows larger, in fact, you have a set number of fat cells. They simply expand or shrink as you gain or lose weight. The SculpSure method has the definite advantage of actually killing off fat cells – these cells cannot and will not return. Your body naturally sheds them in the weeks following your treatment. You don’t need to be concerned about losing too many fat cells – you have plenty on and in your body. Why not have a procedure that is non-surgical, non-invasive, involves no recovery time, and works? That is SculpSure.

It is important to note that not ALL your fat cells in the treated area are gone – if you gain a significant amount of weight, the area will still get larger, but not to the degree it did prior to your SculpSure procedure.

Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Sonya Merriman in Valdosta

Dr. Sonya Merriman is a respected, board-certified plastic surgeon with a practice in Valdosta. Her goal is to offer her patients the most effective treatments for face and body enhancement – but she doesn’t focus strictly upon surgical procedures.

She has chosen the SculpSure system for her patients as it is more comfortable to experience than CoolSculpting (where the fatty area is placed between two cold plates, which can be unpleasant) and produces exceptional results. The applicators are simply placed on your skin. Should you have more areas of concern, these four applicators can be moved for a second round of treatment, in an appointment that lasts just an hour.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

Dear Patients,

We are doing our part to limit the spread of COVID-19. We are still here and working but not currently offering treatments. We are available to answer any questions you have. Our number one priority is safety of our patients, staff and our community.

We are seeing our patients who have recently had surgery for suture removal and to make sure your recovery is safe. We will keep the reception area empty and you will go straight back to an exam room. We will wear masks for your protection. Please only bring one person with you and if possible, it would be best if they can stay in your car during your visit.

We are offering Tele-Health visits for Surgical and Non-surgical consultations. It will be done the same way as an in person consultation would be done, except we will use video to communicate with you. This is done using our Electronic Medical Record and ensures your privacy. Having that consultation process done will allow you to schedule surgery and treatments so they can be done as soon as we are able to provide them again. I believe that after this ordeal, we will all be ready to do something nice for ourselves!

We are providing people with the chance to purchase products. We can bring them to your car. You can also purchase gift cards and we are developing several packages we want to offer. We are also shipping products during this time.

We understand all this uncertainty is frustrating and we apologize for the inconvenience. This situation changes day to day and we will keep you updated as we know more.

So what are we doing since we are not filling our schedule doing surgery, lasers, fillers, Botox, Dysport etc?

We are doing staff training. We will continue to brainstorm and think of ways we can provide even more exceptional patient experience.

We will be making videos and continuing to post on social media. Some of these will be educational and some will be to entertain! How entertaining will probably depend on how stir-crazy we get!

Be safe and be smart. Do your part to slow this virus down. And please, support your local businesses as much as possible.
