Emsculpt from BTL is the latest non-surgical body-contouring device being offered by body contouring physicians, which utilizes HIFEM or High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic energy to cause supramaximal muscle contractions to both build muscle and burn fat.  

As is typical with this procedure, our Orange County Emsculpt complete treatment involves a series of four sessions, two weekly for two consecutive weeks.  The cost of the four sessions will run between $3500-$4500.  My office will be offering Emsculpt from BTL for $4000 for the four sessions.  Patients that may benefit from additional ‘debulking’, will also receive two weekly sessions of Vanquish from BTL for further fat reduction for an additional $500 for a total of $4500.  My practice is one of the only practices in Orange County that will be offering both treatments. 


Emsculpt utilizes HIFEM, which stands for “high intensity focused electromagnetic technology”, to cause supramaximal muscle contractions equivalent to 20,000 abdominal crunches or squats in one 30-minute session. This induces muscle building and fat reduction simultaneously.  Initial studies were performed at seven different medical practices across the U.S. and confirmed by MRI, CT, ultrasound tests and reviewing histology of the tissue under the microscope.

Results achieved included 16% average increase in muscle mass and a 19% average reduction in fat. Additionally, an 11% average reduction of the rectus abdominis separation of diastasis recti was seen.​  Of course, these are averages so some patients experienced more and some less.  

Results from Emsculpt should be maintained with a good diet and exercise regimen.
Long-term results have yet to be evaluated; however, one would imagine that results from the increased muscle mass will diminish if one does not maintain an active exercise regimen or doesn’t do additional maintenance treatments.  Additionally, one may accumulate additional fatty tissue if one does not maintain a healthy diet and exercise regimen, following Emsculpt in Newport Beach.



EMSCULPTInitial studies on ​Emsculpt calls for four, thirty-minute sessions over the course of two consecutive weeks (two sessions weekly).​  Emsculpt from BTL utilizes HIFEM or high intensity focused electromagnetic energy to induce supramaximal muscle contractions equivalent to 20,000 abdominal contractions or squats to induce muscle growth and fat reduction. It is important that you should select a practice that offers a full array of treatments for body contouring, which includes both surgical and non-surgical treatments to ensure you are receiving the best recommendations for your particular situation.



FDA approval of Emsculpt is for the abdomen and buttocks.  ​Eventually, Emsculpt will likely be utilized off-label eventually to treat other areas than the abdomen and buttocks.  BTL, the company that developed the Emsculpt device is working on creating applicators to treat other areas of the body.

Emsculpt is not utilized to treat loose skin of the abdomen or buttocks.​  Emsculpt treatments by BTL utilize HIFEM or high intensity focused electromagnetic energy to cause supramaximal muscle contractions of the abdomen and buttocks resulting in muscle development and fat reduction. Additionally, an 11% improvement was seen in initial studies for correcting diastasis recti or muscle separation of the abdominal muscles.  Skin laxity is not directly improved, however, one may feel this is improved in the buttock area as the muscle mass is increased.  Patients with minimal abdominal skin laxity of the abdomen may benefit from Exilis Ultra radiofrequency/ultrasound treatments from BTL.  Patients with significant diastasis and skin laxity will benefit from an abdominoplasty.  I offer both of these services in my Newport Beach office.
