Obesity is considered an epidemic in America with one third of the population reportedly obese. With such a situation, many businesses have come into play to try and curb the ever growing numbers. This revelation has been met with a number of products and solutions to promote rapid weight loss. Treatments such as bariatric surgery or even strict dieting are being used to bring about drastic loss of body fat and weight.
Unfortunately, one effect of this is that it often stretches out the skin and underlying tissues to their limit. So even if one loses weight, the abundance of skin still stands an unwelcome effect. This skin is unable to adjust well to the body’s new contour and hangs around the abdomen, neck, thighs, arms, buttock regions. Massive weight loss surgery is a collection of medical procedures that address these undesirable effects. It is perfect for patients who have undergone massive weight loss and have excess skin that they would like to get rid of.
Understanding the Procedure
As the results of massive weight loss surgery are uniquely expressed across individuals, there is no one-size-fits-all approach. It can involve a number of procedures to address the unique needs of each individual. These procedures include:
- Lower body lift
- Augmentation mastopexy
- Upper body lift
- Thigh lift
- Mastopexy (Breast lift)
So I did sculpsure about 2 months ago with Dr. Newman. It is apparently the ""latest"" and hottest (no pun intended) laser liposuction machine out there. At first I felt like a sucker because it honestly, sounds too good to be true. I went in for routine injectables and saw a big banner in the waiting room which sparked my interest.Read More I am not a big woman. 33 years old, no children, but a stubborn belly bulge. Dr. Newman told me I was a great candidate but then proceeded to tell me it takes about 6-8 weeks to see the first sign of results and 12 weeks to see full results!! Goodbye instant gratification!!!!Mad0183
So - I booked my treatment. You can have up to 4 applicators at a time and it only takes 25 minutes for all 4. I was a little more uncomfortable than what I had expected, but Jess the tech was wonderful and worked her magic to make it bearable and dare I say fun?
I had 2 pieces on my lower belly and 2 on my upper belly. 2 months in, I feel I can give an honest yes to seeing a definite change. Post treated my belly felt a little sore, which I was told could happen and it was spot on. I didn't have to wear a garment and i had no restrictions after.
I would recommend the Sculpsure and Dr. Newman's whole staff and I will be back for more. I felt like everyone was very honest. In another few weeks I will return to assess my progress and i will have a copy of my before and afters to share :)

Am I An Ideal Candidate For This Procedure?
Candidates for massive weight loss surgery are those who have sustained a weight loss plateau for at least six months. This happens for a number of reasons. First, it enables patients to fully integrate a healthy lifestyle into their daily routine, through exercise and diet. It also enables the individual’s skin to take its natural position following weight loss – some may ‘snap back’ quickly whereas others may take time. The six-month plateau period positions the surgery so that any improvements made will be based on the body’s best shape and will therefore last longer.
