TruSculpt iD is the non-surgical ticket to the body of your dreams. This advanced technology body sculpting technique really works to get rid of fat without needles, scalpels, downtime, or pain. Let the experts at Southwest Michigan Plastic and Hand Surgery in Portage, MI show you how you can contour your body to perfection.

What Is Body Sculpting With TruSculpt iD?

TruSculpt iD is a non-surgical and non-invasive fat-removing body sculpting technique. This firming treatment is best suited for women and men who have relatively small pockets of stubborn fat that do not respond to diet and exercise.

Subcutaneous fat just under the skin has genetic roots. Clocking extra hours at the gym and watching what you eat may not be enough to make it go away, and many people notice that these fat pockets linger no matter what they do. Not much is more frustrating than doing everything you can to get fit and still looking a little pudgy. This type of fat covers muscles and can prevent your body from looking as healthy and toned as it is. You may know your six-pack is there, but no one can see it.

Liposuction Results Without Surgery

If you are struggling with stubborn fat pockets, you might have explored some fat-loss options. In the past, liposuction was the only way to remove it. Although liposuction is effective, many people don’t have time to undergo an operation.

Thanks to modern medical technology, we now have access to the best non-surgical fat-blasting technology that delivers exceptional results without the downtime and risks of surgery. Not only will TruSculpt melt the fat away, but it also tightens skin to deliver smooth, cohesive results for the most naturally tight and slim appearance. It’s also an effective cellulite treatment.

How Does TruSculpt Work?

TruSculpt iD uses revolutionary radiofrequency (RF) technology that’s clinically proven to deliver powerful results. The specialty Cutera applicator device sends uniform RF energy through the skin to penetrate subcutaneous fat. Fatty tissue is no match for the RF waves: this energy destroys fat cells and encourages the body to remove them.

The precision TruSculpt iD device allows us to customize your experience for the most beneficial results and maximized comfort. Although the elevated temperatures damage fat cells beyond repair, it will not impact other bodily tissues. TruSculpt iD works with your body’s natural elimination system to dispel fat cells organically. Over the course of six to twelve weeks, your body removes all treated fat, and your new, slimmer, and shapelier form reveals itself.

Who Could Use TruSculpt iD?

Anyone who has hard-to-lose fat bulges could use TruSculpt iD to reach their aesthetic goals. This treatment is ideal for those who are close to their ideal body weight and in good health. TruSculpt is versatile, and we can treat almost every area of the body. Most commonly, patients visit us to treat subcutaneous fat in the:

  • Abdomen
  • Arms
  • Back
  • Bra line
  • Buttocks
  • Love handles
  • Thighs

You can also use this technique to tighten loose skin after weight loss and correct the appearance of cellulite. Please contact us for a consultation to get further information on which areas we can treat using TruSculpt iD.

Does TruSculp Work?

TruSculpt iD is a powerful treatment for removing unwanted fat from the body. RF body sculpting technology is widely regarded as one of the safest and most effective. Cutera, the company that makes this technology, has been in the business of innovative, easy-to-use aesthetic treatments since 1998. For over two decades, they have delivered state-of-the-art technology that both physicians and patients trust.

Scientific research shows an average of 24% reduction in the thickness of each fat layer. Results for these findings were consistent across the board with all study participants. Besides the incredible fat removal benefits, patients report no side effects or pain. Another German study found that TruSculpt is both useful for removing unwanted fat and tightening loose skin. If the scientific substantiation isn’t enough for you, patients all over the world praise the treatment for its low-key, albeit supercharged body toning prowess.

When Will I See Results from TruSculpt?

One of the most significant advantages of using this treatment compared to liposuction is when you’ll see results. Instead of an overnight transformation, you’ll experience a gradual transition into your new look.

TruSculpt works with your body’s natural waste elimination system to remove fat. It takes time for all the cells to leave your body, and these cells migrate in stages. You can expect to see a difference in your appearance within the first four weeks after your session. After 12 weeks, all the targeted fat will have left your system.

How Do I Prepare for a TruSculpt Session?

Preparing for your appointment is simple. We encourage all patients to hydrate before their appointment. Drink at least 64 ounces of water every day for a couple of weeks before your session. Limit your intake of dehydrating beverages like coffee during this time. Clean the treatment area thoroughly. Please do not apply any lotion, moisturizer, or oil to your skin after cleansing. That’s it.

How Many Sessions Will I Need?

The number of sessions you’ll need depends on how much fat you wish to remove. Many patients are pleased with their results after just one session. Other patients schedule subsequent sessions to achieve their body goals. Ultimately, how many sessions you book is up to you.

Can I Combine TruSculpt iD With Other Treatments?

The gentle nature of TruSculpt makes it an exemplary treatment to combine with other aesthetic services or plastic surgery. We’ll discuss your cosmetic objectives at your consultation and create a custom treatment plan to achieve them.

How Does TruSculpt Compare With Liposuction?

Both TruSculpt and liposuction remove unwanted fat from the body. Liposuction is the better solution for anyone who has larger areas of fat to remove. Body sculpting is a technique that tones and shapes the body. For instance, if love handles are interrupting the flow of your physique, body contouring can help.

TruSculpt is more like a “spot-treatment” for small bulges. The biggest advantage TruSculpt has over liposuction is that it is non-surgical and doesn’t require incisions, anesthesia, or downtime. You need not worry about scarring with TruSculpt.

Am I a Candidate for TruSculpt iD?

TruSculpt is appropriate for a wide variety of candidates. It’s particularly suited for those who are in good health and close to their ideal weight. If you have small areas of fat that don’t respond to diet or exercise, TruSculpt may be the best solution for you. RF treatment isn’t suitable for pregnant women, but it is an ideal solution for mothers wishing to return to their pre-pregnancy bodies. We cannot perform this treatment if you have an open wound in your target area.

Before getting treatment, it’s essential to educate yourself on what this treatment is and is not. This treatment isn’t a weight-loss miracle; in fact, you won’t lose much weight after your appointment. However, strategically removing fat can help you look like you’ve lost weight because you restore balanced proportions to the body.

TruSculpt isn’t the ideal solution for individuals with a BMI over 30. If this is you, we recommend scheduling a consultation with the experts at Southwest Michigan Plastic and Hand Surgery to discuss your treatment options.

The Benefits of TruSculpt iD

Before going all-in with any treatment, it’s only natural to want to know what the treatment will do for you. Below we explore the top benefits of TruSculpt.

Achieve Ideal Body Proportions

Often the ideal body isn’t about the amount of weight you have but how you carry it. With this body contouring technique, you remove lumpy pockets of fat from your body to reveal the slim and sexier physique underneath.

It may surprise you to discover how removing a relatively small amount of fat can transform the appearance of your entire body. During your consultation, we help you visualize your results and put treatment expectations into perspective. Let us help you visualize the new you.

Non-Invasive Treatment

Skip the surgical risk. Operations come with risks that many patients don’t want. From infection to anesthesia, any elective surgery comes with a disclaimer. For individuals who want to tone and sculpt their bodies without the hassle, this treatment delivers.

TruSculpt doesn’t pose any risk for infection or anesthesia complications because it is entirely non-surgical. As a painless treatment, you don’t even need anesthesia during your appointment.

Fast Treatment Time

Fit an appointment at any time. You’re in for a treat if you think removing stubborn fat must take time. After calculating all the time you’ve spent working out or meticulously planning your meals, it would seem only natural that this fat takes time to lose.

You’ll be in and out of your appointment in under a half-hour. The average TruSculpt session lasts about 15 minutes. With treatment times this fast, there’s no excuse not to try it out. Even the busiest person has 15 minutes to spare. Each person has slightly different treatment needs, and we’ll discuss your session duration estimates during your consultation to help you with planning.

Permanent Results

Say goodbye to unwanted fat. All the fat targeted during your session is gone forever. Fat cells stop multiplying after you leave your teenage years. That means we have a finite amount of fat cells that can expand or shrink depending on your weight. By removing some of this static fat, you have fewer cells to contend with even if you gain a little weight back.


Treatment is safe and approved by the highest safety authority in the U.S. The FDA approved TruSculpt iD in 2018 after extensive research and testing. They determined that this treatment is safe for removing fat. Top this off with the positive reputation that Cutera has cultivated since the 1990s and thousands of glowing patient reviews and you have a treatment you can trust.

Comfortable Sessions

It’s a painless process. TruSculpt works with a non-invasive handpiece that never penetrates your skin. You have minimal discomfort to contend with and no needles or scalpels. Most patients report feeling quite comfortable during their sessions. If you feel anything, it might be similar to the warming sensation from a heating pad.

Customized Experience

This treatment is made for you. TruSculpt is a simple process with highly advanced controls. We tailor every session to fit your personalized needs. The Real-Time Temperature Controls assess your body temperature to find the perfect heat setting for you.

Discrete and Evidence Free

Your business is yours alone. There’s nothing wrong with valuing your privacy, and if you don’t want anyone to know you had a little help getting rid of hard-to-lose fat, this is the treatment option for you. Results appear after a few weeks, and treatment leaves no scarring. The only way anyone will know that you received a TruSculpt session is if you tell them.

No Downtime

Treatment won’t slow you down. In an ideal world, we could all take a break from life whenever we want. However, taking a couple of weeks off work and life isn’t feasible for most people.

With surgical options like liposuction, you face at least two weeks of downtime, not to mention that the full recovery time is much longer. Taking a break from work is one thing, but the potential of a six-week break from avoiding lifting, caring for children, or participating in regular activities is quite another.

For those who want to achieve their ideal body without breaking their stride, TruSculpt leads the way. You are free to continue living your life immediately after your session. Most patients feel excited after their appointment knowing that they’ve taken self-empowered action.

Suitable for Most Body Regions

TruSculpt reaches places other treatments can’t go. The traditional form of liposuction comes with restrictions because the tools need enough space to function, which eliminates the possibility of treatment in smaller areas.

TruSculpt doesn’t have this problem. Reaching any area of your body is easy with the patented handheld treatment device. You can battle the bulge nearly anywhere on your body with this treatment.


You work hard: allow the results to shine through. Getting fit is an accomplishment, and a little genetically influenced fat shouldn’t prevent the world from witnessing your results. If a bit of fat is masking your otherwise toned body, this treatment will bring your results to the forefront.

Many patients experience a renewed sense of pride after receiving treatment. A little goes a long way, and you’ll notice the difference in the overall flow and shape your physique.

Removes Cellulite

It’s an unspoken certainty of life: nearly every woman, and many men, have cellulite. All the creams and lotions in the world cannot remove this unwanted subcutaneous fat lurking just below the skin’s surface.

If you are tired of trying treatments that make steep claims about removing cellulite, it’s time to switch to a treatment that works. TruSculpt is designed precisely for the fat that creates the unwanted puckering of cellulite.
