EMSCULPT creates firmer muscle tissue without invasive surgery or enhancement medications. At Bloomfield Plastic Surgery, Dr. Sosa creates customized EMSCULPT treatment plans to help fit each patient’s personal aesthetic goals.

What is diastasis recti?

Diastasis recti is a medical condition in which the abdominal muscles separate from the midline of the abdomen. This is typically caused by pregnancy or childbirth but can also result from a congenital defect. If left untreated, diastasis recti can lead to pelvic floor dysfunction, hip and back pain, and core instability.

Does EMSCULPT help get rid of diastasis recti?

Recent studies have shown that EMSCULPT used in conjunction with physical exercise can alleviate symptoms of diastasis recti and strengthen the core muscles. Dr. Sosa can examine your abdominal muscles to see if you are experiencing diastasis recti and recommend the appropriate number of EMSCULPT treatment sessions.

Am I an ideal candidate for EMSCULPT treatments?

Individuals are excellent candidates for EMSCULPT treatment if they:

  • Are in good, general health

  • Live a healthy lifestyle but struggle to contour their bodies

  • Want to tone their physique without the hassle of invasive surgery

Dr. Sosa will review your personal and medical history to determine if you can safely participate in EMSCULPT treatments.

What does an EMSCULPT treatment session look like?

EMSCULPT treatments take place in one of our private treatment rooms at Bloomfield Plastic Surgery. The EMSCULPT device is applied to each treatment area, causing a vibrating or muscle contracting sensation. Each treatment area takes approximately 30 minutes to complete, and the device constantly monitors your progress and comfort levels. Once your treatment is finished, you may resume normal daily activities. Temporary muscle soreness is expected but should resolve within a day or two.

Recommended number of EMSCULPT treatment sessions

Many patients will notice results almost immediately after the first session. However, Dr. Sosa recommends each patient participate in 4 – 8 treatment sessions spaced 2 – 3 days apart for dramatic improvements.
