Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon Serving Manhattan, New York City & Nearby NY
Emsculpt® reshapes your abdominals, arms, or buttocks through stimulated muscle contraction. It is a non-invasive treatment with high patient satisfaction rates.
Double board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Joshua Hyman is trained in many non-surgical and surgical cosmetic procedures. In your complimentary consultation, you and he will discuss your goals for treatment, medical history, and other factors to determine the best body contouring procedure for you.
How does Emsculpt® Work?
Emsculpt® is a non-invasive procedure that works through high intensity, focused electro-magnetic technology (HIFEM). The Emsculpt® device sends HIFEM energy to the treatment site. This triggers muscle contractions. These muscle contractions are more powerful than those you can voluntarily create, which means you get significant changes to the structure of your muscles in a short time.
What Can Emsculpt® Treat?
Emsculpt® is FDA-approved for use on the abdomen, buttocks, and upper arms. The treatment strengthens muscle and reduces fat in the treated areas, resulting in a firmer, more toned area.
Am I a Candidate for Emsculpt®?
Most people who want to improve muscle tone and reduce fat in the abs, buttocks, or arms are good candidates for Emsculpt®. Ideal candidates are:
- at or near a healthy body weight
- physically active
- committed to following a healthy diet
Emsculpt® is not a weight loss treatment. Rather, it is a non-surgical method of toning and shaping specific areas of the body to achieve smoother, shapelier contours. If you have considerable excess fat or loose skin, Dr. Hyman may recommend a surgical body contouring procedure.
How Effective is Emsculpt®?
Emsculpt® effectively increases muscle mass and decreases fat tissue. Emsculpt® patients have a high rate of satisfaction with their treatment results:
- In a study of 22 patients receiving Emsculpt® treatment on the abdominal area, the average fat reduction was 18.6% with a 15.4% increase in abdominal muscle thickness. Patients with diastasis recti (abdominal separation) experienced a reduction in the condition as well.
- In another study, 75 patients received HIFEM treatment in the buttocks area. All patients in the study reported that “their buttocks felt more lifted and toned” after the fourth treatment. All patients reported increased satisfaction with the appearance of their buttocks after HIFEM treatment, as well.
Four 30-minute Emsculpt® sessions are recommended for optimal results. Your sessions will be scheduled two to three days apart.
Patients often feel a difference in treated muscles immediately. You can expect visible results within two to four weeks of your fourth treatment, with continued improvement throughout the next several weeks. A follow up treatment session is recommended every three to six months to maintain your results.
