truSculpt® 3D Body Sculpting
Many options are now available to reduce stubborn fatty tissue that resists the effects of diet and exercise. Liposuction is a great tool for many patients, but when surgery is not wanted or needed, noninvasive truSculpt 3D may be able to help individuals achieve their cosmetic goals and enjoy a healthier lifestyle. Dr. Neal Goldberg, our board-certified plastic surgeon, offers this non-surgical treatment at our state-of-the-art practice. In offering a comprehensive range of body contouring options, we can better help you identify the ideal approach for your needs, goals, and preferences.
What Is truSculpt® 3D?
truSculpt 3D is an innovative technology designed to reduce pockets of fat in targeted areas using radiofrequency (RF) energy. It can be applied to virtually any area of the face or body, including common “problem” areas like under the chin and around the hips. Each treatment session can spot-reduce up to 24 percent of the excess fat in the area being treated. Multiple sessions can be utilized to accomplish more comprehensive fat loss. While this procedure can be an excellent option for many, it is not right for everyone. You should speak with a qualified medical practitioner, ideally a knowledgeable plastic surgeon like Dr. Goldberg, to determine if this technique is right for you.
How Does truSculpt® 3D Work?
Using a handheld device, truSculpt 3D will be gently guided over the targeted area to deliver the RF energy, which is a virtually painless therapy that should feel warm when active. This treatment is designed to disrupt fat cells without damaging the surrounding tissue, and up to four areas can be addressed at the same time. Treatment time typically takes one hour, and the program will be fully customized to suit your individual characteristics and desired outcome. Once the localized fat deposits have been gone through the RF process, they should gradually break down and be metabolized by the body in the next six to 12 weeks.
What Areas Can Be Treated with truSculpt® 3D?
Nearly any area of the face or body can be refined with the truSculpt 3D method, including:
- Upper arms
- Under the arms
- Love handles

How Many Treatments Will I Need?
The number of treatment sessions you will need to achieve your goals will vary based on factors unique to you. However, most patients see optimal effects after one to three treatments. We recommend having follow-up sessions every three to four weeks for the best outcome, and you should begin to see the benefits about six to eight weeks after the procedure, with final results visible after 12 weeks. Most patients experience minimal downtime, including minor effects like redness, tenderness, swelling, and sweating, which should fade in a few hours to a few days. You can return to your normal activity immediately after the appointment.
How Much Does truSculpt® 3D Cost?
The price of truSculpt 3D depends on the number of areas you wish to have treated, the number of sessions required to achieve your goals, and other personal considerations. We want you to have all the pertinent information at your disposal, and we will provide a detailed overview of your total cost at the initial consultation. If you would like to consider financing options, we work with several reputable lenders that may be able to help.
