Body Sculpting Q&A

What is body sculpting?

Body sculpting is a non-surgical procedure that refines your body’s shape by eliminating fat cells. More specifically, it causes your fat cells to stop holding volume. As a result, your lymphatic system flushes out the fat over time. 

Fit Life MD offers body sculpting with truSculpt iD by Cutera®, a radiofrequency system. The radiofrequency energy the handpiece emits disrupts your fat cells. It takes 15-30 minutes, and most people can reach their ideal results with just one treatment. 

It works on any body shape or type, though you should be aware that it won’t make much of a difference in your weight. Instead, it can reduce the size of some of the areas that don’t see a reduction with exercise. After taking part in a weight loss program at Fit Life MD, for example, you can use body sculpting to target leftover areas of stubborn fat.

Preparing for body sculpting is simple since the truSculpt iD procedure does not involve surgery and does not require anesthesia of any kind.

Which areas can I target with body sculpting?

Body sculpting works well for numerous areas that commonly hold a lot of fat. If you’re unhappy with one or more specific areas but at or around your ideal weight, you can get a better silhouette with body sculpting. Commonly targeted areas include:


Belly fat is common, and most people would ideally like to get rid of it. It’s also hard to lose, even if you go to the gym a lot and eat well.


Flanks are the fat on the sides of your core, between your ribs and hip bones. Some people refer to them as love handles. Body sculpting can make these areas of fat smaller.

What is recovery like after body sculpting?

Recovery is easy after body sculpting with truSculpt iD. Although you won’t see results right away, you can go home immediately after the procedure or even back to work. You won’t be in any pain or discomfort, and you can take part in regular activities like exercise. 

You see results in about 12 weeks. That’s the time it takes for your lymphatic system to flush out any fat cells that the treatment disrupted.
