Body Contouring Treatments Oakland, NJ
If you are looking for non-invasive body contouring treatments that really work, we offer CoolSculpting and Sculptsure as well as BodyFx, Forma Plus and Kybella. If you want immediate results and high definition body contouring, our minimally invasive liposuction with Tickle Lipo and Smart Lipo may be the best choice for you. A no-obligation consultation will help you decide which treatment is just right for you.
Sculpsure is the newest body contouring treatment. This is a non-invasive treatment that permanently removes fat with no down time. It offers some advantages over CoolSculpting, the leading non-invasive fat removal treatment. The treament time is faster and treatment can be performed without the need to suck up the fat into a suction compartment, allowing more flexibility in treating patients with smaller pockets of fat.
CoolSculpting is the world’s most popular non-invasive fat reduction system. Unlike all other treatments, this is the only system that uses cryolipolysis to permanently destroy fat by freezing it. There is no real down time, and this is the first non-invasive treatment that we found to really work.
High Definition Liposculping is an art mastered by very few physicians. Dr. Song uses sophisticated technologies like Nutational Liposculpting, laser assisted liposuction and Thermitight to scultp and contour the abdominal muscles that are hidden beneath your fat.
Before & After Patient Photos
Q: How do I know which treatment is best for me?
A: Liposuction will give you the most substantial and permanent results. Coolsculpting® and Sculptsure® are the top two non-invasive treatments for permanent fat reduction. CoolSculpting® has been available since 2010 with an excellent track record for effectiveness and safety. SculpSure® has been available since late 2015 and early comparisons indicte that the results are at least as good and as safe as CoolSculpting®. After evaluating your medical history and examining you, we will be able to help you decide which would be the best treatment for your specific needs.
Q: What kind of down time can I expect?
A: Our Tickle Lipo® and SmartLipo® procedures are performed using local anesthesia. The gentle vibration and laser energy allow us to use very small instruments to remove the fat. There will be some drainage of the fluid overnight and you will need to wear a compression garment, but most people are back to their normal activities within one to two days. There is no down time with CoolSculpting® or SculpSure®.
Q: Do the treatments hurt?
A: The local anesthetic makes the treatment area numb, so there is very little discomfort during the liposuction treatment. There is some soreness afterwards. There may be some bruising and swelling that could last for weeks. During the CoolSculpting® treatment, a pinching sensation and cold sensation may feel a little uncomfortable. After Coolsculpting®, there will be some numbness and redness of the skin which could last for several days to several weeks. Some bruising may occur due to the suction. During the SculpSure® treatment, there may be a hot sensation which could become uncomfortable at times. The heat can be adjusted if needed. A simultaneous cooling keeps the skin safe and makes the treatment very tolerable. After the SculpSure® treatment, some soreness and redness may persist at the treatment site. There is usually no bruising since there is no suction involved.
Q: What are the risks?
A: The CoolSculpting® and SculptSure® treatments require no anesthesia and our liposuction procedures are performed with local anesthesia. Since we eliminate the risk of general anesthesia, our treatments are in a whole different category in terms of safety from surgeries that require you to “go under.” There is a small incidence of people having pain a few days to weeks after the Coolsculpting® treatment which may require pain medications. There is also a very small chance of stimulating the fat cells to grow bigger in the treated area. These are very rare and treatable. The SculpSure® treatment does not seem to have these side effects but it has not been out as long, so it is possible that this treatment may have the same potetial side effects. Liposuction is a minimally invasive treatment so there is a small risk of wound infection, bleeding, burns, formation of fluid pockets and reaction to the local anesthetic. It is very important to have a full consultation with our medical professionals to go over all the risks and benefits and to make sure you are a candidate for these treatments. Since we offer multiple different options, the chances are, we will be able to recommend the one that is the best and safest for you. There is also the possibility that you may not get the results you are hoping for, that is why we require a consultation before you schedule your treatment. We want to be honest and very clear about what you can expect from the treatments so that you can intelligently decide which treatment to have. You always have the option to choose a surgical treatment such as a tummy tuck or to not have any treatment at all. We do not pressure you to make a decision on the spot. We want you to go home and think about it, go have a consultation at other places, and when you are ready, we will be happy to start your treatment for you.
Q: How many treatments will I need?
A: With Liposuction, one treatment will provide a significant reduction in the treated area. A second treatment may be necessary if there is a large volume of fat to remove or if you want high definition sculpting. Taking too much fat in one session amy leave you with loose skin and increase the risks of the procedure.
CoolSculpting® and SculpSure® treatments will remove about 24% of the fat in the treated area. If you have a lot of fat to remove, multiple treatments can be performed in the same area to achieve further reduction. Uless you have a very small volume of fat to remove, we recommend two treatments to each area 6 weeks apart.
Q: How soon will I see results?
A: With Liposuction, you will see some reduction right away. There will be swelling in the treated area, so you may not see the full reduction until months later. CoolSculpting® and SculpSure® treatments will take 4-6 weeks before visible results are seen.
Q: How much does the treatment cost?
A: The cost of the treatments will be determied by the amount of fat that you want to remove. Many places lead you in with deceptively low prices and then pressure you to sign a contract on the spot. We do not believe in using high pressure sales tactics. We will examine you and give you a realistic estimate of the number of treatments you require and the actual cost when you come in for a consultation. We do offer discounts for multiple areas.
Q: Why do you charge a consultation fee?
A: The purpose of our consultation is to educate you. Our staff gets paid whether you make a purchase or not. This is how we avoid making our clients feel uncomfortable with high pressure sales tactics. Our nominal consultation fee helps offset the cost of our staff’s time. If you do decide to go ahead and book a treatment at the time of your consultation, your consultation fee will be applied towards your treatment. If you decide to go elsewhere, you will be able to make a more educated decision with the valuable information that we will provide for you at your consultation.
Q: What if I am not happy with my results?
A: As with any medical treatment, no refunds are given after the treatment is received. Everyone responds a little differently to treatment and there are no guarantees in this industry. This is why it is very important that you fully understand the risks and benefits of the treatment. We encourage you to do your due diligence before scheduling your consultation. Consumer web sites like RealSelf.com are good places to see what others are saying about the procedure. Yelp.com is good place to see what others are saying about the establishment. After you have done your research, you will be able to get more out of your consultation. Many places will promise you the world with one treatment and then tell you that it was your fault that the treatment didn’t work. We will tell you up front if we think you will need more than one treatment so that you will know what you are getting into. We will also tell you if we think your expectations are not realistic with what we can acheive with these treatments. Be very leary of anyone who runs a big sale and offers you a 100% money back satisfaction guanrantee. This is a common scam and is almost certainy a sign that they are getting ready to declare bankruptcy. That being said, we take customer satisfaction very seriously, if you have an undesirable outcome, we will always work with you to get you to where you want to be in the most cost effective way.
