UltraShape® vs. Liposuction

Posted April 11, 2017 in UltraShape®

Body correction with the help of plastic surgery The world of body contouring offers many methods to obtain the body shape you desire. Each approach offers its own advantages, but one technique that may offer more benefits than the rest is UltraShape®. UltraShape® is a nonsurgical fat removal procedure that can improve body contour without any of the downsides of liposuction or other surgical methods.

How UltraShape® Works

UltraShape® is a noninvasive body contouring treatment that uses ultrasound energy waves to destroy fat cells similar to how ultrasound breaks up kidney stones. The handheld UltraShape® device is applied to the body, focusing on areas of resistant fat. The technology of UltraShape® destroys the fat cells instantly so that the body can begin the process of metabolizing them. Typically, three treatments are scheduled two weeks apart, so within six to eight weeks, the treated area will appear noticeably slimmer and leaner.

Advantages of UltraShape® Over Liposuction

The advantages of UltraShape® over liposuction nearly all come down to the fact that the procedure is nonsurgical. Liposuction and other fat removal surgeries may leave scars, cause pain, and require downtime. With UltraShape®, there is no scarring, no pain, and no downtime. Patients can immediately return to their normal activities after treatment. Because the treatment is nonsurgical, there is also a reduced risk of many complications, such as infection or swelling. Treatment with UltraShape® can even be faster than liposuction, with a single treatment lasting less than one hour. Even without any surgery, UltraShape® can achieve dramatic results and restore slender and smooth body contours.

Other Advantages of UltraShape®

UltraShape® as a body contouring procedure is completely safe and approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Patients can expect their results to be visible in as little as two weeks but more noticeable after a series of three treatments. These results will improve over time, giving the impression of “losing weight.” UltraShape® can target specific areas of accumulated fat, such as excess fat found in the abdomen, hips, thighs, back, and upper arms. For patients interested in body contouring without surgery, UltraShape® is a highly recommended procedure with proven results.

Patients who are considering body contouring but would like to avoid surgery may be good candidates for UltraShape® treatments. UltraShape® could help you achieve your beauty goals without surgery and sculpt your figure according to your desires.
