UltraShape FAQs

What is UltraShape?
UltraShape is a safe, effective, reliable, non-surgical, painless treatment to remove stubborn deposits of fat using focused ultrasound.

Can anyone have UltraShape treatments?
UltraShape is not for everyone. It is not for overweight people and it is not used as a method for weight loss. It is also not for people who do not have at least 1.5 cm of fat.

Can both men and women have UltraShape treatments?
Yes. UltraShape is equally effective for both men and women.

How does UltraShape work?
The transducer is placed on the skin and delivers focused ultrasound to the subcutaneous fat. The acoustic ultrasound energy selectively disrupts the fat cells, but does not damage surrounding tissues such as nerves, blood vessels, muscle or collagen.

What happens to the fat released by UltraShape?
The released fat contains mainly triglycerides. The body can carry away more triglycerides than the amount released with the UltraShape treatment. The triglycerides are broken down into glycerol and free fatty acids by natural fat metabolism pathways. The free fatty acids bind to albumin and are transported to the liver. The liver cannot distinguish between free fatty acids originating from the ruptured fat cells or those originating from a meal. They are then used by the body as building blocks or energy.

Is ultrasound used for other purposes in medicine?
Ultrasound has been used for many years in medicine as a diagnostic tool to image various organs such as the heart, and liver, and in pre-natal exams to image babies.

What is involved with the UltraShape treatment?
Before the procedure, the patient's body mass index is calculated to ensure that it is less than 29. The area to be treated is measured to make sure there is at least 1.5 cm of fat. The area is marked, the circumference is measured, and the patient is weighed. Photographs are taken.

Is UltraShape safe?
The UltraShape treatment is safe. No abnormalities in lipid levels or liver function tests were observed during or after the studies, and liver ultrasounds showed no changes.

Does UltraShape hurt?
No. It does not hurt and most patients find the treatments relaxing.

How many UltraShape treatments are necessary?
Typically, 3 treatments are done unless there is not enough fat left following an UltraShape treatment.

How far apart are the UltraShape treatments?
UltraShape treatments are performed once a month.

Is there any recovery time with UltraShape?
No. Patients can resume their normal activities right after UltraShape.

Are there any special instructions after the UltraShape treatment?
Patients should have a low fat diet and exercise regularly to burn away the released fat.

How will the treated area look after UltraShape?

After 3 weeks, the treated areas appear smaller and smooth, with no irregularities in texture or bumps.

Will the fat recur after UltraShape treatments?
No, the fat will not recur unless the patient eats excessive calories, does not exercise, and gains weight.

Is there weight loss after UltraShape?
No. Weight should remain constant. UltraShape will not cause weight loss.

How much reduction in circumference is seen after UltraShape?
A 2 to 7 cm reduction in circumference is seen after UltraShape treatments.

When are the results seen after UltraShape treatment?
Results are seen about 3 weeks after UltraShape.

Are maintenance treatments required?
No. Further UltraShape treatments would be done only if the patient gained weight and developed more fat deposits.

Can UltraShape be done after liposuction?
