Five Signs You're A Good Candidate For EMSCULPT

By: Dr. Nana Mizuguchi


If you think about it, who wouldn't want a better-looking abdominal area without a surgical procedure? With today's modern plastic surgery techniques, more and more options are available to women and men to get a little help with contouring their body after hours at the gym have been exhausted. Noninvasive fat reduction procedures are the hot treatments these days, and EMSCULPT® is on the list.

EMSCULPT is the revolutionary treatment that uses HIFEM® (high intensity focused electromagnetic) technology to stimulate muscle contractions and reduce excess fat. This noninvasive body contouring procedure has been growing in popularity, and progressive practices like Mizuguchi Plastic Surgery in Louisville, KY offer it. Dual board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Nana Mizuguchi and his experienced team are pleased to provide this new innovative body contouring treatment that is reshaping the way individuals look. But, does it work for just anyone?

Here is a more in-depth look at how EMSCULPT can eliminate stubborn fat without breaking a sweat and who are the ideal candidates for this cosmetic procedure.


EMSCULPTING is a noninvasive procedure that can help men and women further contour their buttocks or stomach without the need for surgery. During one session, muscles in the targeted areas are stimulated, causing unwanted fat to burn away while building more muscle mass in the process. As a result of the stimulation, the muscle contractions with EMSCULPT trigger fat cells in the area to break down and eventually die off. Metabolized by the body and then eliminated, patients are left with a reduction in fat and an increase in muscle tone for a more sculpted body. It is basically an intense workout session of core work or squats that takes place while Louisville, KY patients lay comfortably getting their treatments.

Does EMSCULPT work for anyone?

Despite a person's best efforts to exercise and live a healthy lifestyle, we can't always achieve the desired look we want. By using HIFEM technology, the EMSCULPT device does all the contouring work, so patients are left with a more fit, slimmer midsection, or lifted derriere. However, these 30-minute body contouring sessions are best suited for individuals with the following five characteristics:

  1. Healthy individuals who already consistently workout and maintain a balanced diet
  2. BMI (body mass index) of 30 or less
  3. At or near their ideal body weight
  4. Individuals with small amounts of stubborn fat in their stomach, buttocks, or other areas
  5. No pre-existing medical conditions or heart conditions (such as pacemakers)

How many EMSCULPT sessions will I need?

EMSCULPT is a noninvasive body contouring treatment that burns fat while increasing muscle mass. It can help Louisville, KY patients build and strengthen muscles while reducing any excess fat surrounding them. The two most commonly treated areas are the glutes and abdomen, but with an expert like Dr. Mizuguchi, EMSCULPT can also be utilized to contour the upper arms, back, or thighs. Maximum results with EMSCULPT are generally seen after a series of treatments. It is usually recommended that patients receive 4 – 8 treatments spaced out every 2 – 3 days for optimal results.

Following the last session, patients can expect to see their final results in about 2 – 4 weeks. There is no downtime associated with this body contouring treatment. Patients can return to their normal daily activities after their session. However, patients will experience slight soreness, swelling, or redness in the targeted areas. These side effects will begin to dissipate after a few days.

EMSCULPT is an excellent way to get a more sculpted and toned-looking appearance without the need for recovery or downtime. Healthy, physically fit men and women, looking to take their body to the next level, should consider EMSCULPT treatments. Mizuguchi Plastic Surgery is proud to offer this cutting-edge cosmetic technology, along with other noninvasive body contouring options.
