Our Non-Invasive Body Contouring Procedures

You know summer is coming soon, and you’ve been working hard to slim down and get those extra pounds off. Are you still dissatisfied with the results you’ve been able to achieve by exercising and eating right? Everyone carries fat differently. If you have love handles, excess belly fat, or “thunder thighs” no matter what you do, you’re looking for answers. 

If you don’t want invasive surgery and the recovery time that goes with it, then a non-invasive body contouring system may be the solution for you. You can see up to a 24 percent reduction in fat in the areas bothering you, and that may be just what you need to look good in a form-fitting skirt or pants. 

Body contouring systems aren’t meant to be weight-loss solutions. You should be at or near a normal body weight. Your problem is those trouble spots of unwanted fat that won’t disappear with any amount of exercise. Dr. Jack Hensel Jr. and the staff at Lowcountry Plastic Surgery cover the landscape of body contouring solutions, with four options available at our Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, location. 


SculpSure was the first FDA-cleared laser body contouring system on the market, and there’s a reason it’s still so popular: It works. You should see up to a 24 percent reduction in fat in the treated trouble spot. SculpSure treats excess fat in the following areas: 

These are the typical trouble spots for many people. Two big advantages of SculpSure: Your treatment takes less than 30 minutes, and there isn’t any downtime. You may need more than one treatment to achieve the look you want. 


CoolSculpting® uses a different non-invasive system to eliminate unwanted bulges. It freezes the fat. Once fat cells freeze, they lose their integrity and disintegrate. Your lymph system carries them out of your body over a period of weeks. You’ll see final results in 12 weeks, with a promised 20 to 25 percent fat reduction in the treated areas. Coolsculpting works on nine areas of your body:


If your trouble spots are your abdomen or your buttocks, you might opt for Emsculpt. This method uses electromagnetic energy to produce muscle contractions in the target areas. You’ll get two benefits in one procedure: fat reduction and better muscle tone. There’s usually no recovery time, but you might feel muscle soreness. Dr. Hensel.normally recommends four to five Emsculpt sessions to achieve the best results. 


If you’re bothered by cellulite on your thighs or under your buttocks, you can smooth out those areas with VelaShape. This contouring system uses infrared light and radiofrequency energy to heat fat cells, stimulating new collagen growth.  

Dr. Hensel has received extensive training in all of these body contouring procedures. Although they are for aesthetic purposes, they are medical procedures that require the skill and expertise of a board-certified physician.
