SculpSure® Offers San Jose Patients Nonsurgical Liposuction Alternative

Plastic surgery specialist Dr. Daryl K. Hoffman is now offering SculpSure at his 2 San Jose-area locations, saying it reduces fat without surgery or downtime.

Palo Alto, California (April 2016) — Dr. Daryl K. Hoffman now offers SculpSure, an FDA-cleared, nonsurgical fat reduction treatment, at his 2 San Jose-area clinics for patients looking for an alternative to liposuction.

Dr. Hoffman has offices in Palo Alto (650) 325-1118 and Campbell (408) 371-1118, where he has begun taking consultations for those interested in SculpSure.

"Noninvasive body contouring treatments such as SculpSure and CoolSculpting® have become tremendously popular," Dr. Hoffman says. "A lot of people are in generally good shape but cannot get rid of trouble spots such as 'muffin tops' and 'love handles.' These treatments offer solutions that are convenient, and I am happy to offer my patients another option."

SculpSure uses heat generated by laser energy to gradually destroy fat cells without damaging the skin or surrounding tissue. The dead cells are then purged from the body through its natural metabolic process in the weeks following treatment. The procedure takes about a half-hour, or half the time of CoolSculpting, another popular nonsurgical fat reduction treatment that instead uses cold to damage fat cells.

New statistics released by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery show the popularity of nonsurgical treatments is a significant trend, with the number of such procedures increasing more than 20% in 2015. There are several noninvasive or minimally invasive body contouring treatments now available, including SculpSure and CoolSculpting, which each reduce fat by about 20% to 25% without incisions or downtime.

But, Dr. Hoffman says, plastic surgery remains the gold standard in the San Jose area and beyond for patients who want more significant fat reduction in areas such as the tummy or the thighs. Even though the number of liposuction procedures is not increasing as fast as nonsurgical treatments, there were still more than 222,000 liposuction surgeries performed in 2015, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons®, and it has consistently been one of the top cosmetic procedures in the country for several years.

"A nonsurgical approach can be very effective for the right patients," Dr. Hoffman says, "but people who want more dramatic results are usually better candidates for a tummy tuck or liposuction."

In the San Jose area, Dr. Hoffman offers a range of both nonsurgical fat reduction treatments and different liposuction techniques. He says this enables him to tailor the procedure to a patient's specific needs.

"I believe SculpSure will be a popular alternative," Dr. Hoffman says. "There is virtually no discomfort during the treatment, and patients can return immediately to work or other activities. There are a lot of benefits that will really appeal to my patients."
