Many healthy, fit adults have areas of fat that don't respond to even the most rigorous diet and exercise efforts. As an experienced plastic surgeon, Dr. Marc DuPéré has typically recommended liposuction to slim down these isolated bulges. Today, he also offers truSculpt® 3D, a nonsurgical body contouring option.
truSculpt 3D delivers radiofrequency (RF) energy harmlessly through the skin to the underlying fat, heating it to the temperature that destroys fat cells. The body disposes of treated fat through its natural cleansing process. The RF energy also stimulates collagen production in the skin for noticeable firming and tightening over time.
This innovative treatment provides both fat reduction and skin tightening for results that are superior to CoolSculpting®. In Toronto, Visage Clinic is proud to be the first aesthetic plastic surgery clinic to offer this innovative technology.
How Can truSculpt 3D Help?
We use truSculpt 3D to reduce distinct areas of excess fat while tightening the skin—all without surgery. When performed by a qualified technician, it is safe and effective for any area, including the chin, neck, chest, breast and bra rolls, belly, hips and love handles, inner and outer thighs, and inner knees. You may be a good candidate for truSculpt 3D if you:
want to avoid anesthetic, incisions, bruises, and downtime
are willing to wait for treated areas to gradually become thinner and firmer
understand your results will probably not be as significant as with liposuction
intend to continue an active lifestyle and healthful diet
While truSculpt 3D is popular with patients who aren’t ready for surgery, it also may be used to enhance the results of cosmetic surgery procedures such as a tummy tuck, body lift, or facelift.

Why Dr. DuPéré Prefers truSculpt 3D
Dr. DuPéré is an experienced Royal College-certified plastic surgeon who is known for providing beautiful body contouring with liposuction. As demand has grown for nonsurgical alternatives, he carefully assessed truSculpt 3D along with other options such as SculpSure®, BodyTite®, Vanquish™, and CoolSculpting®. Dr. DuPéré chose truSculpt 3D over all others for its many advantages, some of which are listed below:
Provides both fat reduction and skin tightening
Effective on any area of the body
Involves short treatment times
Produces minimal discomfort during treatment and none afterwards
Ensures safety through the system’s automatic temperature control
Penetrates deeper than other RF devices for improved fat reduction
Dr. DuPéré’s truSculpt 3D Technique
At Visage Clinic in Toronto, the truSculpt 3D procedure is performed as an office treatment that does not require anesthetic. The specialized handpiece emits quick pulses of RF energy as it is smoothed back and forth over the targeted area. We can treat up to 4 areas per session, with each area taking just 15 minutes to treat. While patient goals and experiences vary, most require just a single treatment to attain desired improvements.
Patients are free to return to their normal daily activities right after treatment as no downtime is needed. Unlike with CoolSculpting treatments, there is no post-treatment massaging needed after truSculpt.
Within about 4 weeks, patients typically notice treated areas become slimmer and firmer. Areas gradually improve for up to 12 weeks. Additional treatments may be performed for further slimming or for sculpting other areas
