truSculpting: Revolutionary, Non-Surgical Body Sculpting and Contouring
A former Farragut High School graduate, Kevin Buchanan, MD, is well known to many area residents and more than just a few of his former classmates that are now patients at his Farragut Family Practice. Specializing in Family Practice Medicine, Dr. Buchanan and his team have earned a reputation as compassionate and caring medical professionals dedicated to the well-being of their patients.
As is so often the case with today’s advances in medical technology, new technologies emerge that allow physicians to offer new services to their patients that were unavailable just a few short years ago. One new technology available today that a growing number of patients are taking advantage of is truSculpting, an innovative, non-surgical treatment that helps to contour your body regardless of your shape or fitness level. truSculpting can produce impressive results in as few as four 45-minute treatments and with no downtime, allowing patients to significantly eliminate fat in stubborn areas around their abdomen and flanks, where no amount of exercise and dieting succeeds.
Perhaps the most remarkable outcome from the truSculpting experience extends far beyond just your enhanced self-esteem and self-confidence. It also encourages many patients to focus on their overall well-being, including proper nutrition and exercise, which can lead to a more fulfilling life and greater longevity.
In this issue of Everything Knoxville, Dr. Buchanan and his team will share with our readers the many benefits of truSculpting and answer some of the most commonly asked questions from patients.
EK: Briefly describe how truSculpting can benefit our readers.
Dr. Buchanan: truSculpting treatments have been clinically proven to safely, effectively, and permanently eliminate body fat in stubborn areas by up to 24% while also tightening the skin. Treatments are safe, producing quick results in most patients – usually within 12 weeks. Patients experience little discomfort with no downtime. TruSculpting patients also report improved self-esteem, confidence, and better fitting clothes. And, best of all, no one will ever know that you had the treatment performed.
EK: There are other similar systems available that promise to reduce or eliminate stubborn fat cells. Just how does truSculpting work?
Dr. Buchanan: truSculpting uses an innovative monopolar radiofrequency technology to selectively target fat tissue and therapeutically heat it – until it’s eliminated and passed through the body naturally. Treatments are clinically proven safe and effective to get rid of stubborn fat cells. Many patients compare truSculpting treatments to a hot stone massage.
EK: Why did you select truSculpting instead of the alternative systems that are available?
Dr. Buchanan: We chose truSculpting for a variety of reasons but, in particular, because of its ability to tighten and improve skin tone, as well as to eliminate stubborn fat cells. Also, truSculpting is usually less expensive.
EK: I imagine that patients enjoy the peace of mind that comes from the fact that their truSculpting treatments actually take place in a medical physician’s facility.
Dr. Buchanan: Yes. As with any treatment, patients often have some level of apprehension. Patients seem to experience a peace of mind from knowing that we have a medical provider on site.
EK: Patients express excitement about their clothes fitting better after treatment. Describe your patients’ newfound self-confidence.
Dr. Buchanan: Patients share with us their excitement in fitting into clothing that they haven’t worn in years, especially their skinny jeans. We have had several women tell us that they will now wear sleeveless shirts after receiving treatments on their arms, which both eliminated stubborn fat and tightened their skin.
EK: Describe how truSculpting can reduce cellulite.
Dr. Buchanan: Many truSculpting patients have reported that in addition to the elimination of stubborn fat cells, they have also observed a reduction in the appearance of cellulite.
EK: truSculpting can also tighten saggy skin. Explain.
Dr. Buchanan: Unlike alternative sculpting treatments that use cold to eliminate fat cells, the gentle heat generated by truSculpting can actually help to tighten the skin by reducing saggy skin. This tightening of the skin is a major advantage over other treatments.
EK: We’ve also learned that patients often seek treatment as couples, groups of friends, sisters, and mother/daughters.
Dr. Buchanan: That’s correct. Much to our surprise, we have hosted several treatment “parties.” It has helped lessen the minor apprehension that some people may experience with the treatment. Aside from that, patients seemed to genuinely enjoy themselves. We encourage friends and family to encourage and support each other with these treatments. You have our assurance that we will do everything in our power to make this a memorable event for everyone involved.
EK: What are some of the most commonly asked questions raised by new patients considering truSculpting, and how do you respond?
Dr. Buchanan: The most common questions we get are: Does it hurt? And does this really work?
truSculpting treatments do not hurt. During the treatment, the temperature of your skin will rise but will remain comfortable. There may be some slight discomfort, but truSculpting is effective, safe, and the results are even and consistent. Treatments can be compared to having a hot stone massage.
It absolutely works! You do have to make sure you are drinking 64 ounces of water a day to be able to flush out the eliminated fat cells from your system. You should also continue your diet and exercise plan to maximize your treatment benefits.
EK: How has truSculpting encouraged your patients to improve their overall lifestyle?
Dr. Buchanan: They have gained more self-confidence from looking better and feeling better, which further motivates patients to eat more healthy and exercise more regularly. Patients seem to take a greater interest in their overall health, which we find encouraging.
EK: What is the best way for our readers to learn more about your family medicine practice and truSculpting?
Dr. Buchanan: Call Ashley at 865-675-1593, ext. 224 for more information or to set up your free consultation appointment.
EK: In closing, is there anything else you would like to add?
Dr. Buchanan: We have been performing truSculpting procedures for almost two years with excellent results. Most clients have seen improvement in hard-to-treat areas that dieting and exercise don’t seem to help, particularly the abdomen and flanks. It has also been personally exciting to observe the improved sense of self-esteem and self-confidence on the part of our patients, which frequently encourages them to make other healthier lifestyle choices.
