For stubborn areas of fat that are not responsive to diet and exercise, non-surgical SculpSure® treatments can safely and effectively tighten and tone the abdomen and flanks in just 25 minutesusing non-invasive lipolysis. At Travis Shaw MD, we offer SculpSure® for men and women who are seeking a non-invasive, pain-free alternative to liposuction and CoolSculpting®

Serving Richmond, Virginia Beach, and Fredericksburg, our medical team is led by Dr. Travis Shaw, a board-certified otolaryngologist and facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and discover the benefits of SculpSure® for non-surgical body contouring.


Advances in aesthetic medicine have developed several body contouring technologies, but SculpSure® is the first FDA-approved system for non-invasive laser lipolysis of the love handles and abdomen. Featuring state-of-the-art, light-based technology which maximizes patient comfort during the procedure, SculpSure™ is specially designed to include:

  • A flat, non-suction design for consistent, professional results
  • A simple hands-free attachment system that is designed with both the patient and technician in mind
  • A light wavelength that is specially designed for targeting underlying fat cells while leaving skin, muscles, nerves, and other important structures unaffected


One of the main benefits of this advanced system is its ability to target underlying fat cells without damaging the skin surface or any other structures. This innovative technique treats excess fat directly at the source with long-lasting results.


  • A fast, convenient “lunchtime” procedure in 25 minutes1
  • Targeted treatment that destroys fat cells1
  • Visible results in as little as six weeks as fat cells are removed by the body during natural processes1
  • Optimal, long-lasting results in about 12 weeks1
  • Zero downtime1
  • An immediate return to normal activities, including exercise1
  • Comfortable treatment at our Richmond office with a high rate of patient satisfaction1


Unlike CoolSculpting®, this procedure does not cause pain, bruising, or numbness. Slight redness may occur in treated areas but typically subsides after the first day.


In a study completed by the FDA, patients lost up to 24 percent1 of targeted body fat with just one treatment. The procedure may be repeated every six weeks until the patient’s aesthetic goals are achieved. Dr. Shaw and our medical team will let you know what you can expect and how many sessions you may need.

SculpSure FAQ

What is SculpSure®?

SculpSure® is a non-invasive body contouring system for the reduction of stubborn fat in areas such as the abdomen and love handles. The 25-minute procedure destroys up to 24% of treated fat cells without surgery.1

Is SculpSure® right for me?

SculpSure is ideal for people with trouble spots, particularly those that seem resistant to diet and exercise.1

How many treatments will I need?

Every patient is different. Your treatment provider will develop a customized treatment plan to meet your desired goals. Ask your treatment provider about the treatment plan that is right for you.1

What should I expect during the treatment?

Most patients feel a tingling sensation intermittently throughout the treatment which is generally well-tolerated.1

When will I see results?

Patients may start to see results as early as 6 weeks following treatment as the body begins to evacuate the destroyed fat cells, with optimal results usually seen at 12 weeks.1

How long will results last?

Treated fat cells are destroyed during the treatment and will not regenerate.1

How long before I can resume normal activities?

There is no downtime with SculpSure®, so you can have the treatment during your lunch hour and return to work immediately.1

What is the difference between fat loss and weight loss?

The number of fat cells stored in our bodies typically remain constant throughout adult life. As we lose weight, the size of fat cells become smaller, but do not decrease in number. Even with diet and exercise, many people have difficulty losing weight in these trouble areas. After the SculpSure treatment, the fat cells are permanently destroyed and will not return.
