Ultra Shape removes stubborn pockets of fat. Other procedures that remove fat are liposuction and mesotherapy.


Liposuction is a surgical procedure that removes fat from several sites such as the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, and arms. It may be done under a general anesthetic or by a tumescent method that uses local anesthesia. The fat is suctioned out by a tube that is inserted through an incision in the skin. It is not intended for weight loss, but for body contouring. The amount of fat removed varies and the more fat that is removed, the greater the risk of surgical complications. If too much fat is removed, there is a chance of an uneven, lumpy contour.

Recovery from liposuction takes between 2 to 14 days. Pain, which may last for as long as 2 weeks is controlled by oral analgesics. Bruising lasts a week or so and swelling subsides in 2 to 8 weeks. Numbness may last for several weeks. Normal activity may be resumed after several days or weeks, depending on the area where the fat was removed. A compression garment is worn for several weeks. Noticeable changes are seen within a few days once the swelling resolves, but it takes up to 6 months to see the final result.

Potential complications from liposuction include infection, allergic reaction, anesthesia toxicity, scars, contour irregularities, skin necrosis, and puncture of an internal organ, possibly leading to death.

UltraShape is a safe, reliable, painless, non-invasive, non-surgical method of fat reduction for men and women. It is an excellent option for those people who do not want a surgical procedure with potential complications and recovery time.


Mesotherapy is a treatment to reduce fat. It involves multiple injections of pharmaceutical and homeopathic medications, plant extracts, vitamins and other ingredients into the subcutaneous fat under the skin. It targets and destroys adipose cells.

There is controversy over mesotherapy since the mechanism of action is uncertain. There is no established safety profile of the substances injected and whether or not they actually work. The substances can cause inflammation and swelling with intense burning.

Many studies have been done with UltraShape showing an excellent safety profile. The mechanism of action is understood. Patients are very comfortable during their treatments, and there is no associated pain.
