A Closer Look: AirSculpt®

“If you can pinch it, we can take it.” When it comes to cosmetic surgeries, this phrase almost sounds too good to be true. But what if we told you there is an option exactly like this and more? Enter AirSculpt®—the body-contouring phenomenon taking over Hollywood. Created by celebrity plastic surgeon Dr. Aaron Rollins of Elite Body Sculpture (www.elitebodysculpture.com), this patented, precision-engineered technology is a minimally invasive, virtually painless alternative to traditional fat removal procedures.

“We are removing unwanted fat through a freckle-sized hole cell by cell with no needle, no scalpel, and no stitches—and you’re awake the whole time,” explains Rollins. “It can remove any stubborn fat that does not respond to diet and exercise, whether a few tablespoons or over a gallon.”

Many patients describe the discomfort as equivalent to a deep tissue massage (patients are just prescribed a single Xanax to help them relax). Rollins’ technology also tightens your skin in addition to removing fat for results that appear natural, never fake or uneven. 

With glowing patient testimonials and even more incredible before and after photos (head over to @elitebodysculpture on Instagram—you won’t be disappointed), it is no surprise women and men are travelling all across the U.S. to have an AirSculpt® session done at one of their nine clinics. 

And, it’s actually way more common than you think. Almost 18 million people underwent surgical and minimally invasive cosmetic procedures in 2018, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. That’s a number Dr. Rollins is taking a big bite into.

The main difference between AirSculpt® and other procedures is that it is truly minimally invasive, unlike traditional liposuction…which scrapes away unwanted fat with a tube resembling a cheese grater. Yikes!

“AirSculpt® allows you to start seeing results the same day as your procedure,” says Rollins. “There is little to no bruising, and you may return to work the next day.” In fact, the typical recovery time is less than 24 hours and many can resume normal activities 48 hours after, including exercise. “We frequently have patients who go out for dinner or head to an event on the same day.”

Right now, the procedure can be done on areas like the chin, abdomen, back, arms, and legs. Nicknamed by some as “lunchtime lipo,” a chin contouring procedure takes around 20 minutes, while a full abdomen can take just over an hour. And because the process is so gentle, the fat can be transferred and used in other body sculpting procedures like their Brazilian butt lift or Up A Cup™ breast enhancement. Even with this add-on, the whole experience is equivalent to a luxury spa visit, a far cry from old school options requiring general anesthesia.

“The response has been just incredible, which is the most important part to us. There is no better feeling than helping someone feel like ‘themself’ again.” We couldn’t agree more, Dr. Rollins...we couldn’t agree more.
