Body Sculpting

What is body sculpting?

Body sculpting is a surgical or nonsurgical method for improving your appearance by treating areas of your body that have not responded well to diet and exercise. Body sculpting helps to enhance your appearance by:

  • Tightening sagging skin
  • Tightening underlying connective tissues
  • Adding fullness and volume
  • Removing fat in trouble spots


Dixon Medical Associates offers noninvasive body sculpting as part of the MDVIP Annual Wellness Program. While not medically necessary, body sculpting can make a profound impact on your mental and emotional wellness, as it can boost your confidence, improve your motivation, and enhance your efforts towards health and wellness.

Who is a good candidate for body contouring?

Noninvasive body sculpting, such as WarmSculpting with SculpSure, works well for men and women who are generally healthy, nonsmokers, and not during significant weight loss.

WarmSculpting treatments work effectively for patients with stubborn areas of sagging skin or pockets of fat on the:

  • Back
  • Belly
  • Thighs
  • Chin
  • Underarm
  • Flanks or love handles


If you are obese or very overweight, you may not be an ideal candidate for noninvasive body sculpting. Many use this treatment after they have reached their goals through medical weight management and diligent effort. It is an excellent reward for work well done.

What is SculpSure body sculpting? 

WarmSculpting with SculpSure is an FDA-cleared, noninvasive method that uses laser technology to target fat cells in common problem areas. The WarmSculpting process slowly raises the temperature and permanently destroys fat cells using therapeutic levels of laser-generated heat. The body naturally gets rid of the dead fat cells over time, reducing the concentration of fatty tissue in treated areas. 

WarmSculpting with SculpSure treatments are pain-free and last around 25 minutes. After your treatment, there is no downtime so you can return to your normal activities immediately.  

You’ll see your best results after about 12 weeks when your body has processed and removed the dead fat cells. To reach your ideal goals and enhance your results, you may decide to have multiple treatments.
