TruSculpt 3D is the newest advancement in No Downtime, Non-Invasive body contouring procedure that reduce fat by an average of 24%, measured by ultra sound. It is RF (radio frequency) technology that delivers deep heating energy to break apart and destroy fat cells. After the fat cells have been destroyed, the body metabolizes them and permanently eliminates them from the body. The deep heating of the skin also stimulates the production of collagen and causes the skin to tighten, which can reduce the appearance of cellulite and improve the overall appearance of the skin.
The provider will determine whether you are a candidate for truSculpt 3D during the consultation. Typically, appropriate patients have a BMI less than 35.
Yes, this treatment can be done on all skin types.
Treatment time depends on the areas treated. To treat an abdomen and both flanks (4 areas) will take about 60 minutes.
Patients typically see results after one treatment. We recommend 2 treatments, 2nd treatments immediately 6 weeks after the 1st treatment for optimal results.*
Jewelry or body piercings should be removed if they are located in the treatment area. The skin should also be shaved clean without any body hair.
Stubborn pockets of fat can be reduced in a variety of areas including, but not limited to: tummy, love handles, flanks, inner & outer thighs, Bra & back, under Arms area and under the chin. If you can squeeze it, we can treat it!
The treatment is performed using a technique that requires the operator to lightly glide the handpiece over the area being treated. The temperature will slowly heat up and is very comfortable. Most patients comment that the procedure feels like a hot stone massage.
There is no downtime or side effect after this treatment. You can return to all normal activities immediately after the treatment. The treatment area may feel tender following the treatment, but this will resolve within a few days
After the treatment, your body’s immune system will start to break down and flush out the fat cells that were treated leading to circumferential reduction. Everyone’s body does so at a different rate however, on average, people will see results around 8-10 weeks after the treatment and continuing improvement up to 12 weeks.**
TruSculpt 3D is designed to reduce mild to moderate fat deposits that are diet- and exercise-resistant. It is not to replace diet and exercise for weight loss or treating obesity. Should the patient desire more comprehensive treatment, they may benefit from liposuction. In these cases, truSculpt 3D should only be used to complement the results of liposuction, not replace the surgery.
Cost will vary based on the number of areas treated, surface area of each, and total number of sessions needed based on patient’s specific aesthetic goals.
* Recommended 3 treatments for under arms area and under the chin
** Results may vary with different patient experiences.

Modern body contouring technology allows you to tackle fat deposits that you just don’t seem to budge with diet and exercise. Treatments target fat that seems to hang on in your trouble zones like the:
First, you should consider your goals for body contouring treatment. Dr. Tien can assess your needs and discuss which treatments are appropriate for you.
Body contouring is best for people who haven’t had success trimming their bodies with diet and exercise. It’s not a weight loss solution but rather a means of defining stubborn areas of fat on the body of those who are close to their ideal weight.
Dr. Tien also considers your medical history before using any body contouring techniques. Past surgeries, current medications, and other factors may affect your candidacy for body contouring.
Finally, you should consider the cost of body contouring procedures before making your decision. Insurance doesn't cover body contouring treatments.
Non-surgical body contouring treatments require zero downtime so that you can resume your daily routine directly from the office. You also don’t have to bother about the healing time, risks, pain or side effects associated with surgery.
Body contouring also makes fat disappear for good. After the procedures destroy fat cells, the body flushes them out so those particular fat cells can’t regenerate.
Finally, body contouring is effective at removing fat cells. TruSculpt® 3D, for example, boasts up to a 24% reduction in fat at the treatment site.
