Millions of people across the country can’t seem to get in shape no matter how hard they try. None of the new fad diets seem to help reduce stubborn belly fat, and the trendy exercise routines aren’t much better. If you’re still stuck with some unwanted love handles, belly bulge, and other pockets of unwanted fat, you don’t have to give on that dream figure. While diet and exercise are paramount to a healthy and fit lifestyle, there are other factors involved such as genetics and family history that contribute to your body composition. Where you store fat, how much fat you store, and how your body responds to certain foods is all partially influenced by these uncontrollable factors.

Fortunately, modern technology has come a long way in terms of body contouring. There are some effective and affordable fat-targeting procedures that can help you achieve those body-contouring changes without invasive surgery. Emsculpt is one of the more well-known body-contouring procedures that helps patients build healthy and dense muscle mass all while getting rid of stubborn portions of adipose tissue. It’s important to note that Emsculpt has the best outcomes for adults that are in decent shape already. Patients should be looking for increased definition instead of major weight loss. Here, we’ll take a look at what weight you should target to be in the best position to see great results from an Emsculpt appointment.

How Does Emsculpt Work?

The clinical trials conducted to illustrate the efficacy of Emsculpt treatment showed some promising results. For instance, one study saw patients increase their muscle mass by 15% with about a 20% loss in fat cells in areas that were targeted. This procedure uses bands and paddles to apply electromagnetic energy to the target muscles. This causes the muscles to contract just like in a traditional workout. It’s been described as having the same effect as performing 20,000 reps in just half-an-hour.

The Target Weight for the Ideal Emsculpt Patient

When you meet with Dr. Richards, Dr. Jabs, or Dr. Magge at Cosmetic Surgery Associates, you’ll receive a general assessment to determine your eligibility for an Emsculpt procedure. These doctors will check the fat deposits in your desired target area. The manufacturer behind Emsculpt’s unique technique says that the energy can work through around 2.7-inches of body fat. Anything beyond this thickness and it starts to lose impact. Patients that do have deposits of fat thicker than this might have to undergo a workout and diet regimen in order to burn some body fat before the procedure.

An ideal candidate is reasonably fit and healthy. It’s important to note that this is not a weight loss procedure. The Emsculpt procedure is better equipped to help users target some stubborn pockets of fat rather than offering a tremendous amount of fat loss. This procedure can be a great catalyst for starting a healthier and more disciplined lifestyle. In general, you should be within 20-pounds of your goal weight in order to undergo an Emsculpt treatment.
