Sculpsure vs lipo for back fat?

Cosmetic Treatments QuestionsCategory: SculpSureSculpsure vs lipo for back fat?
A patient asked 3 years ago
I have back fat, especially on my upper and lid back. I am considering sculpsure over lipo but not sure if I am a good candidate. Had. Photo consult and was told that flanks and the small roll are no problem but the upper back may be an issue because the machine may have to sit on my shoulder blades. So it could hurt or they may not be able to do it at all. Is that true? Also, will sculpsure get rid of significant fat in that area or am I wasting money? If so,how many sessions per area? Help!

SculpSure vs. Liposuction for Back Fat

 
Hi and thank you for your question! Liposuction is the “gold standard” treatment for fat reduction and no non-surgical treatment modalities would come close, but it comes with (relatively) high cost, higher risk and longer recovery/downtime. I don’t see a reason why you cannot try SculpSure to reduce the fat in the back area if you want to avoid surgery for any reasons, but you need to set your expectations realistically. I hope it helps and good luck!
