Call or schedule a consultation online with Alireza Mahmoudieh, MD, to find out if you could benefit from WarmSculpting.

WarmSculpting Q & A

What is WarmSculpting®?

WarmSculpting is a noninvasive fat reduction method that uses a laser to kill the fat cells that stay on your body despite diet, exercise, and weight-loss surgery. The procedure is quick, averaging less than a half hour per session. It isn’t painful, and you won’t need to take off any extra time for recovery afterward.

WarmSculpting isn’t a weight — it’s a body contouring system. This means that, while it eliminates fat cells, you won’t lose a significant amount of weight in the process. After several weeks, you’ll notice that the treated area is smoother and less full.

How does WarmSculpting work?

During a WarmSculpting treatment, Dr. Alireza Mahmoudieh wraps the device around you. The device administers high-powered, hot lasers that target your fat cells and kill them while leaving your skin intact. The device switches between heating and cooling to protect your healthy cells from the lasers.

You won’t see immediate results, but in the weeks following your treatment, your body reabsorbs the targeted fat cells. You can return for another WarmSculpting treatment after several months if you haven’t achieved your desired results.

What can WarmSculpting do?

Before you commit to a WarmSculpting treatment, it’s important to know its limitations. Dr. Mahmoudieh assesses your goals to make sure that WarmSculpting is the right choice for you. Areas that WarmSculpting can improve include:

  • Stomach
  • Love handles
  • Back
  • Thighs

WarmSculpting isn’t intended as a weight-loss method even though you’ll likely lose a few pounds in the process. If losing a lot of weight is your goal, then WarmSculpting isn’t your best option.

Am I a good candidate for WarmSculpting?

If your goals align with WarmSculpting’s abilities, you’re likely a good candidate. You may also be a good candidate for WarmSculpting if:

  • You have fat that won’t go away
  • You’re not trying to lose weight
  • You’re not obese
  • You understand the limitations

During your consultation, Dr. Mahmoudieh takes your medical history and determines whether or not WarmSculpting treatments are safe for you.
