"It's been over a year and a half since I've been going to Dr. Chang's office, I drive an hour just to get here (although I know some drive three hours or more to see him!). I did a lot of research to find a board certified plastic surgeon in the area with a solid and reputable background.Throughout my visits, he's been incredibly kind and taken the time to listen to my never ending list of questions. There are a lot of doctors that push services that you don't need just for money but he'll be transparent to tell you exactly what he feels you'll need in order to gain improvement and will work with you to see what could be the best outcome. You can also text or email him directly after any invasive procedures if you have any questions/concerns instead of waiting for a follow up. I also don't want to forget the rest of the staff - everyone from the receptionists and nurses have been very gracious, patient and accommodating to my needs but I also want to mention Melanie whose an RN at Dr. Chang's office. She has superb bed side skills and truly makes you feel at ease when you're speaking with her. I've probably annoyed her with a million questions and emails but she's still been stellar. I highly recommend her for any non-surgical procedures. They have a few videos on their website and youtube as well so you have an idea of who they are and the procedures they perform if you want to get a better idea yourself but I definitely recommend them, they're awesome."- M. / Google / Jul 24, 2018

Our experienced team will go over the benefits and risks of SculpSure at your initial appointment in our Leesburg, VA facility before your treatment. Even though SculpSure is generally effective and safe for healthy patients of all skin types and tones, it's of the utmost importance that your aesthetic care is effective, individualized, and beneficial. Those who will most benefit from the SculpSure procedure:
- Are interested in fat removal, without scars or incisions
- Are healthy overall and are nonsmokers
- Prefer a fat minimizing treatment that will not accompany a long recovery
- Struggle with problem areas of fat that are resilient to exercise and diet efforts
Your SculpSure treatment will be completed at Aesthetica Cosmetic Surgery & Laser Center by one of our registered nurses. The procedure typically takes approximately 25 minutes from start to finish, but this can vary depending on the size and location of the treatment area as well as the number of body parts being treated. Your nurse will pass the SculpSure handpiece slowly over the part being treated, placing emphasis on no more than four problem areas. During the treatment, the laser technology melts away the fat without hurting or burning the skin. Since the treatment is scalpel free and doesn't require incisions, patients can expect to be discomfort free after SculpSure and will be able to return to daily activities straight away. Strenuous exercise isn't recommended for up to 48 hours.
What to Expect
Compared to standard liposuction surgery, incisions are not needed to complete the SculpSure lipolysis procedure. You may see results in as little as six weeks post procedure, while most patients report the most obvious results three months following treatment. During this period of time, the body will break down the melted fat cells and evacuate them from the body. While SculpSure has been found to decrease fat cells by more than 20%, it can not provide the drastic changes that standard surgical liposuction does.
Frequently Asked Questions
What does this cost?
When contemplating a fat reduction procedure, patients may consider surgical liposuction or a nonsurgical method, such as SculpSure. The pricing associated with the nonsurgical route (should one be a candidate) is significantly less than surgery. During a private consultation, we will create a custom treatment plan so that patients will understand how many sessions they need. Pricing is based on the size of the treatment area, the number of areas being treated, and how many sessions it will take to attain the right result. We offer flexible payment plans as well as financing for our patients.
There are a number of laser liposuction methods on the market and the technology continues to only get better. SculpSure features the latest advances in laser lipolysis, which makes it more effective than some of the other systems that may require more than one treatment session. There have been a number of studies on the SculpSure technology and both patients and plastic surgeons appreciate the results from a single, 25-minute treatment session. It's fast, effective, and creates the contour many patients desire.
Is it safe?
Cynosure is one of the most advanced technology companies in the cosmetic industry. They manufacture technologies that are safe and effective to use that create outstanding outcomes for patients. Cynosure is proud to have created SculpSure, which is the world's first hyperthermic laser lipolysis system. Approved by the FDA for fat reduction, the system was developed to use on patients of all skin types and tones and is considered one of the faster, safer, and easier systems on the market. This laser lipo system is also built with the new Contact Cooling™ feature, allowing patients to remain comfortable during their procedure.
Does it cause scarring?
Unlike traditional liposuction, ultrasound-assisted liposuction, and laser-assisted liposuction, SculpSure requires no incisions in the skin, so patients will not have to worry about scarring after the procedure. The SculpSure hyperthermic laser is tuned to a frequency that affects the fat cells, but not the surrounding tissue or muscle cells.
Does the fat return?
Laser liposuction uses laser energy that heats and destroys fat cells. Once these cells are broken down, it takes approximately 12 weeks for them to be naturally eliminated from the body. Patients can be reassured that these fat cells do not return. However, it is important to understand that new fat cells can still form. Therefore, after a SculpSure treatment, it's important to adhere to a healthy diet and lifestyle to maintain the best results.
