When it comes to staying in shape, sometimes our bodies don’t respond to a healthy diet and regular exercise. Genetics, age, hormones and other factors can influence how we store and burn fat, making it difficult to reach our fitness goals despite spending hours at the gym. If you’re feeling frustrated by lackluster results and stubborn problem areas, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Nikesh Patel and his dedicated team at New Reflections Plastic Surgery in Freehold, New Jersey now offer EMSCULPT, a revolutionary body contouring device that can help you build muscle and shed those last few pounds without surgery.
What is EMSCULPT?
EMSCULPT is an advanced body contouring device by BTL, a worldwide leader in medical equipment manufacture. Designed to help men and women sculpt a leaner, more athletic figure with no downtime or recovery, EMSCULPT is a noninvasive treatment that focuses on building muscle in common trouble spots. Patients are able to target specific areas of concern for highly individualized results, increasing muscle mass by up to 16 percent. Although EMSCULPT isn’t a weight-loss tool, it may also decrease fat by up to 19 percent in treated areas.
How Does EMSCULPT Work?
To help patients reshape their body without invasive surgery, EMSCULPT utilizes advanced high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) energy. Scientifically proven to build muscle quickly and effectively, this innovative technology induces thousands of muscle contractions to deliver the equivalent of 20,000 squats or crunches in just one session. This is above and beyond what can be achieved at the gym even with the most rigorous workout routines, allowing patients to take control of their fitness and get the results they want.
Am I a Good Candidate for EMSCULPT?
EMSCULPT is noninvasive, nonsurgical and FDA-cleared for both men and women, making it ideal for most patients who want to improve their muscle definition or sculpt a more toned physique. EMSCULPT is not a weight loss procedure, however, and patients who are at or near their fitness goals will enjoy the most noticeable results. Good candidates for EMSCULPT are those who:
- Are at a healthy, stable weight
- Struggle with stubborn fat or hard-to-tone areas
- Want to elevate their fitness to reach their body goals
- Prefer to avoid more invasive treatments
- Can commit to at least four treatments
Dr. Patel and his team of body contouring experts can help you decide if EMSCULPT is right for you during an in-person consultation. He will thoroughly evaluate your goals and expectations, take the time to listen to your needs and thoroughly explain the procedure before beginning treatment, ensuring that EMSCULPT is the best option for achieving your desired results.
What is the EMSCULPT Procedure Like?
EMSCULPT treatments are known for being easy, comfortable and convenient experiences that last about 30 minutes. When you arrive for your appointment, your treatment will begin with an overview of your desired outcome and areas of concern. Then, you’ll relax as the device paddles are placed on the abdomen, buttocks, arms or legs where they will start to deliver the HIFEM energy. Throughout the treatment, you’ll be able to see and feel your muscles contracting, but most patients find the process comfortable and often read, watch TV or listen to music during their session. At New Reflections Plastic Surgey, we offer the full spectrum of EMSCULPT treatments and can address not only your abdomen and glutes but your calves, thighs, triceps and biceps as well for truly customized treatments. Dr. Patel can also adjust the intensity of the device based on your goals and comfort level for a procedure precisely tailored to your unique needs.
By the end of your appointment, EMSCULPT will have triggered enough muscle contractions to equal 20,000 squats, crunches, lunges or curls. This is far more than can be achieved with any fitness routine, allowing you to effectively target problem areas with precision. With results backed by clinical studies and a patient satisfaction rate of 96 percent, EMSCULPT has helped thousands of men and women achieve the results they want without surgery or downtime.
Is There Any Downtime or Recovery?
After your EMSCULPT appointment, it may feel like you have just completed an intense workout, but no downtime, recovery or adverse side effects are associated with the treatment. You’ll be able to resume all normal activities immediately, including exercise. Due to the ease and convenience of EMSCULPT treatments, many patients schedule them during their lunch break at work or any time they have a gap in their busy schedules.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect?
Since EMSCULPT improves muscle tone, lift and definition naturally, your results will complement and enhance your unique body shape without looking artificial or overdone. Although you’ll notice some tangible improvements immediately, more notable results will develop in the weeks following your treatment. You’ll see improvements for up to six months, particularly in the firmness and definition of treated areas. After a series of four treatments, most patients notice a 16 percent increase in muscle mass. EMSCULPT may also reduce body fat by up to 19 percent to help you not only build muscle but lose inches off your waistline as well.
Although EMSCULPT can help you achieve slimmer contours and a more sculpted silhouette, it’s not meant to replace your fitness routine. EMSCULPT treatments work best when combined with a healthy lifestyle, as it builds off the benefits of diet and exercise to produce the most dramatic outcome. You will also enjoy longer-lasting results if you continue to pursue a healthy lifestyle. For many, EMSCULPT is used as the finishing touch as they work toward their body goals, but it can be a motivating factor to stay in shape.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
At New Reflections Plastic Surgery, your EMSCULPT treatment will be personalized to address your specific concerns. Most patients begin with a series of four treatment sessions, but the number that you’ll need to reach your fitness goals will depend on a number of factors, such as your desired outcome and current physical condition. During your consultation, Dr. Patel and his experienced team will design a treatment plan just for you and recommend the number of sessions that will help you achieve the results you want, targeting your problem areas to help you build muscle and burn fat where you need it most.
