New York, NY – It’s fair to say COVID-19 has taken a toll in one way or another on pretty much everyone. Recent studies find fitness regimens and activity levels are on a notable decline – especially in bustling urban areas like New York City, where people were accustomed to being on-the-go. Yet, one “gym” in Manhattan has seen a notable uptick in clients in recent weeks among those who want to build muscle and sculpt their bodies in a safe, discreet and exclusive location. That place is the medical gym – i.e. office – of Darren M. Smith, MD.
Dr. Smith has earned a stellar reputation among colleagues and patients for his high level of experience and training in plastic surgery and his patient-centric approach. He is one of the only board-certified plastic surgeons in the country to complete advanced fellowship training in both aesthetic surgery and craniofacial surgery. His offices are now home to two non-invasive procedures that help men and women contour their physique, build muscle – and even relieve incontinence.
EMSCULPT dissolves fat and increases muscle mass in the treated areas via “supramaximal” muscle contractions – which are the type experienced at the highest level of exertion. More so than with more typical exercises like sit-ups or crunches. EMSCULPT can be used for almost any muscle group — the abdomen (“core”) and buttock regions are the most popular.
EMSELLA, on the other hand, uses the same technology as EMSCULPT but to strengthen the pelvic floor entirely noninvasively and while the patient is clothed, yielding a breakthrough in women’s intimate health. Additionally, EMSELLA treats urinary incontinence by strengthening the patient’s pelvic floor to rehabilitate weak pelvic muscles – which is especially significant due to the prevalence of the problem. According to the American Urological Association, one-quarter to one-third of men and women in the United States experience urinary incontinence.
According to Dr. Smith, the powerful muscle contractions experienced during the procedures are not otherwise achievable through voluntary contractions. Therefore, the muscle tissue is forced to adapt to extreme conditions, resulting in muscle building and body sculpting. The procedures have likewise been found to work well in tandem with more and more patients coming into the office for EMSCULPT, finding they are candidates for EMSELLA. Employing EMSCULPT and EMSELLA together, Dr. Smith is able to provide complete “core to floor” conditioning.
“I am a big proponent of both EMSCULPT and EMSELLA because I have seen them quite literally change people’s quality of life by making them more confident, more active, and more focused on their health for the long-term,” said Dr. Smith. “Seeing the results of the EMSELLA procedure, though, has been especially meaningful to me. I’ve watched patients who had given up on activities they loved and avoided social gatherings, return to living their best lives.”
In addition to EMSCULPT AND EMSELLA, Dr. Smith is an expert in cosmetic injectables and aesthetic surgery of the face, breasts, and body. His office provides innovative virtual consultations for patient convenience and safety during COVID-19 and prides itself on strict adherence to overall advanced patient safety protocols, personalized aftercare, and patient satisfaction.
