Rafael C. Cabrera, MD, FACS
Plastic Surgery Specialists of Boca Raton 

Dr. Rafael C. Cabrera is a double board-certified plastic surgeon. He has been practicing plastic and reconstructive surgery in Boca Raton for more than two decades and is on staff exclusively at Boca Raton Regional Hospital. Dr. Cabrera received his BA with Distinction from Cornell University in 1985 before graduating from New York University School of Medicine in 1989. He completed his General Surgery Residency and Plastic Surgery Fellowship at the New York University Medical Center Institute of Reconstructive Plastic Surgery and the prestigious Manhattan Eye, Ear and Throat Hospital. Dr. Cabrera is very excited to be an early adopter of the EMSCULPT NEO platform, the first and only non-invasive body shaping treatment the uses radiofrequency for fat reduction and electromagnetic energy for muscle strengthening and toning.

Q: How does EMSCULPT NEO work?

A: Using simultaneous radiofrequency (RF), the temperature in the subcutaneous fat, gently increases to levels that results in permanent fat cell damage. These fat cells are then slowly removed from the body. During the same application, the high intensity focused electromagnetic energy (HIFEM) contracts 100 percent of the muscle fibers in the area at intensities that are not achievable during voluntary workouts, resulting in a 25 percent increase in muscle mass. 

Q: What areas are commonly treated with EMSCULPT NEO?

A: EMSCULPT NEO can be applied over the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, arms and calves.  

Q: What is the protocol? 

A: Four 30-minute sessions, scheduled 5-10 days apart. There is NO downtime, the effects are felt immediately and final results are seen around 3 months after the last treatment. Treatments feel intense but should never be painful. EMSCULPT NEO is completely non-invasive and does not require surgery, needles or anesthesia. There is no other device in the industry that treats both fat and muscle in a single treatment.
