SculpSure Body Sculpting city, state

There’s only so much that diet and exercise can do. Even for the most committed individuals, there are pockets of fat that seem impossible to lose. While traditional liposuction continues to offer pleasing outcomes for those wanting to eliminate stubborn fat, patient demand for body contouring is on the rise more than ever. Meeting this demand is an innovative technology called SculpSure, which is the first FDA-approved laser treatment for lipolysis of stubborn fat on the sides of the waist and stomach area.

The light-based technology uses a hyperthermic fat reduction approach, sending specific wavelengths to increase the temperature of the adipose (fat) tissue. Though the procedure is complete in 25 minutes, the disruption of the fat tissues stimulates the body’s natural ability to eliminate fat over the course of six to twelve weeks following treatment.

As a revolutionary breakthrough in fat reduction, SculpSure is a simple, non-invasive technology proven to reduce fat up to 24% in stubborn sections of the body where fat accumulates (love handles, abdomen, flanks, muffin tops, double chins). With four flat applicators and one hands free device, SculpSure is a short, painless, non-invasive treatment that can be administered during a lunch hour.

Dr. Evan Ransom of San Francisco Facial Plastic, Reconstructive & Laser Surgery is a Double Board Certified and Ivy League educated surgeon with a personal philosophy of helping patients achieve a balanced appearance that boosts confidence and overall enjoyment of life. Dr. Ransom is proud to offer the state-of-the-art light-based SculpSure technology to patients looking to eliminate stubborn fat pockets that do not respond to diet and exercise.

SculpSure Light-Based Fat Reduction

Bringing light to the art of body reshaping and contouring, SculpSure is in a class all its own—with the ability to reduce fat in a short, non-invasive treatment for all patient types. With four flat applicators that are attached to troublesome areas including the abdomen, flanks, love handles, and muffin tops, the SculpSure device administers selective wavelengths that are absorbed by fat tissues. While very little is absorbed at the dermal level, the disruption of the adipose tissues initiates a fat reduction process that continues for up to 12 weeks, where optimal results and contouring is most noticeable.

Non-Surgical Fat Reduction

Helping patients achieve a desired shape quickly with no downtime, SculpSure is of great benefit to surgeons and patients alike, as the global market for non-surgical fat reduction is set to grow more than 15% each year.

If you are frustrated with stubborn fat that seems impossible to lose, SculpSure Body Sculpting is a simple solution, customized to fulfill your aesthetic goals.

To learn more about this FDA approved, light-based technology, contact Dr. Evan Ransom at the San Francisco Center for Facial Plastic, Reconstructive & Laser Surgery in the bay area.

SculpSure can also be used to reduce the volume of the fat pad under your chin. For patients with a stubborn double-chin, two 25 minute treatments sessions can result in significant improvements in the shape of this area. And the best part – literally zero downtime. You can undergo a SculpSure Submental treatment on your lunch break, right before work, at the end of the day before going out… with no swelling, redness, or bruising. This treatment is ideal for younger patients with excess fat, minimal loose skin, and a tight schedule.

I had several nasal/sinus issues including a severely deviated septum and a dorsal hump, which I wasn't crazy about. Dr Ransom did both the medical and aesthetic parts of my surgery and he did a wonderful job! While I did have some swelling, I didn't experience much bruising at all. I loved that he left the natural look of my nose just making small corrections. My breathing has GREATLY improved. His office staff was super helpful in scheduling and making sure payment and everything was very clear. I am very, very, very pleased with my results!!

I had a terrible surf accident in Bali and needed to get 50 stitches to repair what the reef did to my face. I had emergency cosmetic surgery in Bali the day of the accident. Immediately when i got back to the states i was introduced to Dr Ransom through some mutual friends. I was searching for the best cosmetic surgeon in San Francisco to help in my recovery. He and his team have been amazing! he helped establish a plan for my post-op wound care/treatment and administered some initial laser treatments. Dr Ransom and his team are extremely knowledgeable and very patient / helpful. I am very grateful for their help and support. I am finally looking normal again!

I had three issues with my nose - which inhibited my breathing: 1- broken nose, 2 - narrow nostrils that collapsed when I inhaled through my nose, 3 - deviated septum. When I was living in New York, I went to see a doctor about my breathing issues, and he said my skin was too thin and there was likely nothing he could do to rectify the problem. Dr. Ransom was recommended by an ENT I saw through One Medical. As soon as he saw him, he said he could easily fix my nose, and remove the bump that had formed from the trauma. His confidence and strong sense of self immediately put me at ease, and I had little doubt that he could accomplish exactly what he promised. He showed me a modified picture of my nose , and really liked what he proposed. The end result very closely matched what he promised. Not only can I now breath much more easily through my nose, it looks much better. He managed to make it look like an improved version of itself, however I still look like me, and unless I tell anyone I had it done, it's not overly noticeable, which I prefer. I'm pretty vain and very critical, and I can say that Dr. Ransom is great, and comes highly recommended.

Doctor Evan Ransom took my surgery on relatively short order and did a wonderful job. He is very talented and has a nice friendly professional support staff. I can not thank him enough, he was calm, caring, professional and interested in the follow results of his work . He seemed to bring a certain artistry to the profession.

Dr Ransom is very kind, honest, and conscience doctor. I was referred by my best friend, she is also Doctor Ransom patient. She has so much good things said about Doctor Ransom. So I had a face lift done by Doctor Ransom on July 2015. He did a wonderful job on my face and I have a lot of compliments on my face. So if anyone want to get their face done. I would highly recommended Doctor Ransom to you. I give Doctor Ransom a five stars.

I have currently been getting botox regularly with Dr. Ransom and he does a fantastic job. My previous doctor's office moved to another location where it was no longer convenient. I didn't realize what I was missing until I went to Dr. Ransom. I felt really comfortable, but most important he did a terrific job blowing my previous doctor out of the park. (Sometimes it's good switch it up a bit to make sure you are getting the best treatment.) On top of that, Dee the office manager is an incredible asset to the office. She personalizes your visit and relationship with the office to an extent I have never experienced before. I even get follow up calls to see how I am doing after a treatment. I highly recommend Dr. Ransom for his great work, and his team's impeccable customer service.

Dr. Ransom and Dee are the BEST! Whether it's aesthetic or reconstructive, I'd trust him over and over again with my face.
