Plastic Surgery Talk

Everything you need to know about cosmetic surgery procedures.

New and advanced liposuction methods allow patients to shed their unwanted fat painlessly without missing out on work or social activities. One of the many non-surgical liposuction procedures offered at SpaMedica is UltraShape, a fat reduction device that uses ultrasound waves to permanently eliminate fat.

Patients usually come in for treatment on three separate sessions. Sessions involve patients lying on the bed while the UltraShape technician applies the device on the skin to melt up to three centimeters of fat painlessly. The focused ultrasound waves selectively concentrate on the unwanted fat and oscillate the fat cells until they implode. There’s no anesthesia required for patients and each treatment takes about 30 minutes.

For women, there are common body areas that Dr. Mulholland often treats with UltraShape. “The tummy, hips, outer and inner thighs, arms and the bra roll at the back are the areas women want fat removed from,” says Dr. Mulholland. UltraShape treatments can cost anywhere from $750 to $1,200 a treatment depending on the clinic.

Dr. Mulholland says UltraShape is ideal for people who are looking for a modest fat reduction with no pain or down time. However, another important factor with this procedure is realistic expectations. If patients are looking to shed more fat, other liposuction methods like SmartLipo or BodyTite are more suited to their goals.

The beauty with UltraShape is that patients can hop off the treatment bed and slip into a dress or bathing suit without any visible signs of having treatment done. In the course of a few treatments, patients can permanently shed their fat and get back to regular life activities without anyone even knowing what they did.
