What is Emsella?
Urinary incontinence is an issue that — for many reasons — is usually associated with women. However, that doesn't mean that many men don't suffer from this problem every day. Moradi M.D. Cosmetic Surgery in San Diego, CA utilizes the Emsella platform to resolve the issues of our patients experiencing issues with urinary incontinence. It involves a noninvasive treatment, performed by Dr. Amir Moradi, that can result in greater control of the bladder and a significant strengthening of the pelvic floor. By making use of electromagnetic stimulation, the Emsella technology is able to increase neuromuscular stability, thereby reducing urinary incontinence.
"I have been visiting Dr. Moradi for almost 20 years and was in my early 40’s at my first visit. I look back on the last twenty years and I am forever grateful that I never swayed from his practice or expertise. In so many ways he has helped me with the aging process. Almost 60 now and I truly feel I look the best I can, of course, ALL because of his assistance.Dr. Moradi educated me early on of non-invasive procedures that make all the difference in giving a youthful appearance. He NEVER upsold or pushed any decision, simply he prescribed therapies for ME and I was never dissatisfied. He is the BEST at Botox and fillers, but, there are also so many other laser therapies that he offers that WORK!Recently, after having three children, I tried the Emsella technique to help with incontinence and just some of the other annoying problems that are a result of bearing children. The therapy itself is done fully clothed, sitting on a chair. It is not uncomfortable, in fact, its a perfect place to catch up on some reading! The result is incredible! I am no longer running desperately to the bathroom, time and time again. It really worked and it seems to get better as time goes on. If you are looking for a Dr. who is truly concerned about you, look no further. I’m glad I found my one and only Doctor in my lifetime to help with the disease of aging. You will not be dissapointed."- C.B. / Yelp / Jan 29, 2021

How is Emsella Performed?
Emsella is a chair that patients sit on fully clothed. There is no gown or alternative outfit required. Once you sit on the chair, you'll begin to feel contractions in your pelvis. This sensation is painless and, instead, described by many of our patients as a fluttering sensation. In fact, the contractions are so light, most people choose to read a book or have a conversation to pass the time. This slowly re-educates the muscles of your body how to function and strengthens your pelvic floor, granting you more control over your bladder. The treatment itself usually only takes around 30 minutes, making it perfect to schedule during a lunch break or a quick lull in your schedule.
What to Expect After an Emsella Treatment
Due to the treatment's noninvasive nature, there is no downtime or recovery associated with it. Patients can simply stand up, walk out the door, and go on with their daily lives. Noticeable improvements may be had after just one session, but it is usually recommended to come in once or twice a week for about 2 – 3 weeks before you'll notice the maximum benefits.
Between treatments, there are several other things you can do to improve the strength of your pelvic floor. For instance, you could reduce or eliminate caffeinated beverages from your diet, as well as foods that are natural diuretics. Additionally, scheduling regular bathroom breaks throughout your day can take some of the stress off of your shoulders.
