Emsculpt Neo

Emsculpt Neo is the latest innovation in body sculpting that offers fat reduction and muscle toning in the same procedure. By combining these two treatments into a single non-invasive procedure, Emsculpt Neo hones the body and revitalizes your self-image

The Evolution of Body Contouring

You deserve the best body contouring procedures that modern science can offer. You maintain a healthy lifestyle that includes a diet rich in nutrients and you partake in regular exercise. Yet, your body still doesn’t reflect your vision of how you want to look.

Emsculpt Neo epitomizes the ongoing evolution of body sculpting procedures designed to magnify your natural beauty.

It is a revolutionary new treatment that promotes muscle development and reduces fat deposits in targeted locations with a single procedure. As the first device to combine muscle enhancement with focused fat reduction, Emsculpt Neo sets a new gold standard for body sculpting procedures. 

Dr. Joshua Korman proudly offers Emsculpt Neo to his patients from his office in Mountain View. A board-certified plastic surgeon and Stanford Professor, Dr. Korman looks forward to taking care of all your aesthetic enhancement needs.

About Emsculpt Neo in the Bay Area

Emsculpt Neo offers patients ground-breaking results beyond what can be achieved through diet and exercise alone. Emsculpt Neo is the first FDA-cleared procedure for both fat reduction and muscle building in the same procedure.

Emsculpt is based on integrating radiofrequency and high-intensity focused electromagnetic technology (HIFEM).

The Emsculpt Neo applicator emits both radiofrequency and high-intensity electromagnetic energies. The HIFEM technology focuses on contracting the muscles at an intensity impossible to achieve through voluntary workouts. The procedure connects your muscles to a machine that performs thousands of muscle contractions in less than an hour. This method packs a greater punch than anyone can accomplish during a 30-minute session at the gym. 

Radiofrequency provides further benefits by heating up your adipose (fat) tissue in the targeted location. Heating the fat tissue triggers a process that will melt the unwanted fat cells. The body will then process these liquefied fat cells as cellular waste and eliminate them through the lymphatic system.

Before and After Photos


By unifying two separate body sculpting processes, patients can benefit from the efficiency, affordability, and ease of treatment. You can eliminate those stubborn bulges, build a more toned and appealing physique, and grant yourself a boost in self-confidence. Achieving the figure you desire is a journey, not a destination, and Emsculpt Neo supplies a powerful means to help you along on that journey. Minimally invasive with no extended downtime means you can enjoy the benefits with little intrusion in your regular activities.

Suitable Candidates

Emsculpt Neo has broad appeal. Everyone’s body is different but we all experience areas of our bodies that we feel less confident about. As we age, we begin to notice those troublesome patches that won’t respond to our best efforts. If you’re frustrated with these trouble spots, then it’s time to look into a remedy like Emsculpt Neo that can accomplish results that you can’t achieve through diet and exercise alone. Emsculpt Neo has proven effective on patients of up to 35 BMI which makes it very inclusive and capable of treating a wide range of patients.  Treatment areas include the abdomen, buttocks, and thighs.

Personal Consultation

The most successful body contouring procedures originate with great conversations. During your consultation, Dr. Korman will get to know you, listen to your goals and aesthetic aspirations, and assess your medical history. He will conduct an initial examination and then devise a body contouring strategy based on your goals. Bring any questions you have with you to your consultation and Dr. Korman will gladly answer them.

Like all great artists, Dr. Korman carefully selects the best tool for each job. Emsculpt Neo represents a much-welcomed addition to the repertoire of any aesthetic surgeon. It saves you valuable time and leads to a more affordable overall treatment plan. With Dr. Korman’s patient-centered approach, he will always recommend what he determines is the safest and most effective procedure suited to your needs.

Dr. Korman has taught at Stanford for over 25 years as a Clinical Professor of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. He only offers procedures that he knows offer proven clinical efficacy. When technology evolves, he strives to provide new options for his patients. New innovations often offer the greatest value.

No Preparation Needed

Emsculpt Neo requires no specific preparation. This makes it ideal for patients who seek a “lunchtime procedure” to help sculpt the most desirable contours. If anything arises, don’t hesitate to call us to reschedule. We would be happy to postpone your treatment session to accommodate unexpected circumstances.

A Safe and Simple Procedure

Emsculpt Neo saves time and makes life convenient for patients. Sessions only take approximately 30-minutes. When you come in for your session, you’ll lie down and we’ll help you get comfortable in your private treatment room. Your technician will then cleanse the treatment area and attach the applicators. It’s that simple. You can now relax while Emsculpt does all the work.

The applicator simultaneously emits synchronized RF and HIFEM energies. This dual process of liquefying fat cells while also contracting the muscles at an accelerated rate truly changes the game in the field of body contouring. 

Minimal Recovery

Enjoy a sculpted physique with little to no downtime at all. You should be able to jump right back into your daily routine with no interruptions. Although you may experience some mild soreness similar to the feeling of having just engaged in a high-intensity workout. With Emsculpt Neo, you can effectively and efficiently build muscle while also reducing unwanted fat cells. If you experience some mild swelling or soreness, it should resolve on its own within a few days. Feel free to give our office a call at 650-254-1200 if you have any questions during your recovery. 

Stunning Results

Clinical studies conducted by BTL Industries indicate phenomenal clinical results with the latest advances in HIFEM applications. The average results were a 30% reduction in fat deposits and a 25% growth in muscle volume.[1] Patients have seen a reduction in waist size and satisfaction with improvements in overall body contouring.[2] In addition to fat reduction, patients will enjoy increased muscle definition in the abdominal wall. These results have been confirmed by MRI studies.[3] For a glimpse into the experiences of our patients, please peruse our patient reviews. Our patients honor us with such wonderful feedback.  

How Much Does Emsculpt Neo Cost in the Bay Area?

After Dr. Korman performs an assessment during your consultation, he will provide you with clear and transparent pricing. If you wish to pay in installments, there are financing options available. To show further appreciation for our patients, we offer specials regularly. 


Will I lose weight with Emsculpt Neo?

Emsculpt Neo is not a weight loss procedure. Instead, it’s a procedure intended for targeted fat reduction and muscle toning. It’s recommended that a patient reaches a desirable body weight before undergoing Emsculpt Neo for maximal results.

Do fat cells eliminated by Emsculpt Neo ever return?

No. The number of fat cells are set during adolescence. Though fat cells may swell or shrink, this number barely fluctuates during the course of an individual’s life. So the fat cells melted by Emsculpt Neo won’t ever return. However, this doesn’t mean you now have immunity to weight gain. Your existing fat cells can still expand and disrupt your “social media-worthy” results if you do not maintain a healthy lifestyle.

How many Emsculpt Neo sessions are recommended?

For optimal results, we recommend a minimum of four sessions. In rare cases, a patient may require fewer or more sessions, but four tends to be the “magic number” to achieve the best results.

What does Emsculpt Neo feel like?

Emsculpt Neo’s dual processes complement each other and each helps the other function better. You’ll experience some warm sensations and feel like your muscles have received a workout but Emsculpt Neo results in only minor discomfort in some patients.
