Even with diet and exercise, both men and women have stubborn fat they can’t get rid of. SculpSure is the newest option for noninvasive body contouring, with FDA approvals for nonsurgical reduction of fat in the abdomen and flanks in a 25-minute treatment cycle. Dr. Lawrence Bass, our board-certified plastic surgeon, was the lead investigator in one of the two FDA studies that resulted in this approval. SculpSure works by delivering laser light through the skin to heat up and damage fat while simultaneously cooling the skin. The exposed fat is removed by the body's natural elimination process over a several-week period. Dr. Bass is highly skilled and experienced in body contouring, and he invites everyone to meet with him privately at Bass Plastic Surgery in New York, NY to discuss their needs and determine which method would be the best for them.
SculpSure is an effective treatment that has been cleared by the FDA to reduce fat cells through noninvasive technology. The best candidates for SculpSure will have:
- Moderate fat in areas such as the abdomen and back
- Had little success with diet and exercise for removal of their stubborn fat
- A desire for natural, nonsurgical results with no downtime
- A healthy lifestyle and good overall health
"I had a breast reduction with Dr. Bass in July. Everything from the consultation to the follow up appointments to the office staff was wonderful. I'm so pleased with the results and should've done this years ago. Dr. Bass is attentive and very thorough. The office staff is extremely friendly and accommodating. I highly recommend Dr. Bass!!!"- Anonymous / Vitals / Oct 02, 2017

"I had surgery performed by Dr. Bass. I found him to be caring with more aftercare than to had anticipated. I am a patient at the Great Neck office and found everyone there to be helpful, thorough, and caring. I would highly recommend this practice."- M. / Healthgrades / Nov 18, 2020
"Great Surgeon for Male Rhinoplasty - Dr. Bass performed my rhinoplasty along with a medically indicated septoplasty. I'm happy with the results, in terms of both look and function (i.e. snoring is cured, breathing noticeably improved).Male rhinoplasty is a difficult procedure to get right; my understanding is that it has a lower patient satisfaction rate than most cosmetic procedures. Thus, it is especially important to find the right surgeon with the knowledge, skill and experience, who can discuss expectations in a clear and honest manner. I fully recommend Dr. Bass.Dr. Bass is very patient and caring, especially for a surgeon of his renown. Pre-operative consultation was very thorough and he was generous with his time. Recovery from any nasal surgery is unpleasant and good post-operative care is important; again, I'm pleased with his & his staff's empathy and responsiveness.Finally, I'm grateful that Dr. Bass was able to accommodate my schedule and coordinate with her colleague Dr. Franziska Huettner (another outstanding surgeon), so I could have multiple procedures with the downtime of one."- A. / RealSelf / Aug 23, 2020

What to Expect
During a SculpSure treatment, up to 4 separate applicators are held against the skin with straps. A feeling of warmth or deep heating is typically experienced. Energy levels can be adjusted as needed for comfort. During the treatment, patients will lie down or sit on the exam chair and may read, use their cell phone, or take a nap since the procedure is noninvasive and comfortable. Each cycle of treatment typically lasts 25 minutes.
The bulges are usually less visible within 6 weeks and reach maximum reduction by 12 weeks. Fat cells are removed from the body after treatment with SculpSure, similar to what happens in liposuction, so results should be long term. If a patient's weight is sustained, the fat should not come back; fat cell removal, unlike dieting, creates a more stable change.
