Surgical body contouring procedures can help reshape your physique, but none of those invasive methods help build muscle mass. Men and women who strive to attain stronger, more defined abdominal or gluteal muscles can actualize their objectives by opting for treatment with Emsculpt®. Emsculpt® utilizes cutting-edge technology to induce supramaximal muscle contractions, creating shapely and firm contours without necessitating hours at the gym or major surgery. Dr. Robert I. Oliver, Jr., and Dr. Jason M. Jack of Plastic Surgery Specialists of Birmingham, Alabama, offer Emsculpt® treatment to deliver impressive body contouring results to their patients.
What Can Emsculpt® Achieve?
A Stronger Core
Many men and women spend hours at the gym, diligently trying to strengthen their abdominal muscles. Sometimes these efforts yield disappointing and discouraging results. Patients who desire a stronger core, including postpartum women with weak rectus muscles, can reach their fitness goals by seeking treatment with Emsculpt®.
Enhanced Abdominal Definition
People work hard at the gym and follow strict diets to obtain a chiseled and fit abdomen, but achieving optimal results can seem almost impossible. Emsculpt® stimulates intense muscle contractions in just 30 minutes, enhancing the contours of the midsection. Patients who want sculpted and defined abs can benefit from Emsculpt® treatment.
Having curvaceous buttocks is considered an attractive trait in both men and women. Regularly doing lunges and squats can help build the gluteal muscles, but some patients are unable to target the buttocks easily with at-home methods. Those who are disappointed with the shape and size of their flat or sagging derrière can obtain stunning, non-surgical butt augmentation with Emsculpt®.
Your Emsculpt® Procedure
How It Works
The Emsculpt® device delivers high-intensity focused electromagnetic energy (HIFEM®) to targeted muscles, triggering supramaximal contractions. These contractions produce improvement deep within the muscle tissue for enhanced sculpting and contouring effects. Depending on each patient’s unique needs, Emsculpt® can be used to build muscle in the abdomen or buttocks.

Frequently Asked Questions
What should I expect during my recovery after Emsculpt® treatment?
Emsculpt® is non-invasive, so there is no downtime required following treatment. Patients may feel slight soreness similar to that of an intense workout, but all normal activities and work may be continued immediately after the procedure. It is recommended to avoid exercises that engage the muscles treated with Emsculpt® for a couple of days.
Will Emsculpt® help me lose weight?
While Emsculpt® is not designed to eliminate fat, it does provide some fat reduction over time. As the muscle tissue develops during and after Emsculpt® treatment, it acquires energy from the surrounding fat cells, minimizing the fatty tissue in the area. The result is a visibly sculpted and firm abdomen or buttocks.
How long will my Emsculpt® results last?
Because the muscles need some time to develop after they’re treated, you should notice visible enhancement within two to four weeks after your initial treatment with Emsculpt®. In clinical trials, changes observed in the muscles appeared to be maintained for at least six months without additional treatments. You can preserve your results for longer by adopting a healthy lifestyle that includes a dedicated exercise regimen. Some patients maintain their results by scheduling additional treatment sessions.
