Colón & Sands Plastic Surgery is excited to offer truSculpt iD for those looking to contour areas of their figure where stubborn fat has been difficult to correct with dieting and exercise alone. Exercise and diet–while essential to healthy living–alone may not always be so effective toward slimming certain regions of the body, and truSculpt iD is a proven technology that can safely and effectively eradicate fat cells regardless of body type or shape.
This treatment harnesses the power of non-invasive radio frequency, transmitting radio waves to specified areas to heat fatty tissue. With enhanced warmth, adipose tissue breaks down and the skin tightens, helping to sculpt a slimmer, healthier appeal.

What can I expect before my truSculpt iD experience?
The initial step of this aesthetic renewal begins with an initial consultation with Dr. Sands or one of our trained specialists here at Colón & Sands Plastic Surgery. Your medical history will be discussed as well as your desired treatment regions to determine your candidacy for this treatment. truSculpt iD is not an ideal choice for pregnant women, patients who may have tumors in the designated treatment areas, or patients embedded with metallic implants or cardiac pacemakers.
Once your initial treatment is scheduled, your specialist will relay any necessary pre-treatment preparations. Since truSculpt iD employs radiofrequency energy, you may be advised to remove any jewelry or body piercings before your treatment.
What can I expect during and after my treatment?
Once your treatment begins, your specialist applies the truSculpt iD device to the skin of the designated treatment area The handpiece transmits focused radiofrequency energy to fatty tissue underneath the superficial layer of skin, with each pulse lasting around a few minutes. Patients may experience a deeply warming sensation, but it can be altered to improve your comfort. No topical anesthetic agent is required and the application is practically painless.
Once your treatment is complete, you may go about your schedule and activities as normal. The process of breaking down fat structures underneath the skin has begun, and you may see noticeable results after approximately 1-3 months of your appointment. Larger treatment areas may require more than a single session. However, most areas are generally contoured following a single treatment. Ultimately, results will vary from person to person.
Don’t let stubborn fat keep you from feeling confident towards your image. Contact us at Colón & Sands Plastic Surgery in Metairie to schedule your initial consultation today. We look forward to hearing from you!
