The hottest trend in New York City is now available at Connecticut Plastic Surgery Group! UltraShape is the first and only FDA-cleared, non-invasive body-shaping procedure that uses focused, pulsed ultrasound for selective fat cell destruction. UltraShape permanently destroys troublesome fat cells, and does not require incisions, anesthetics or recovery downtime.
Featured on WTNH, Dr. Vasquez discusses Ultrashape, with Theresa DuFour on CT Style.
How It Works
There are two common types of fat cells in your body including visceral and subcutaneous. Diet and exercise help address visceral fat, but the subcutaneous fat, which is the fat right underneath the skin’s surface, can be stubborn and resistant to diet and exercise. UltraShape targets unwanted subcutaneous belly fat, in a simple, virtually pain-free treatment.
Unlike weight loss that only shrinks fat cells, UltraShape permanently destroys fat cells by delivering focused, pulsed ultrasound energy directly to the stubborn fat below your skin’s surface. Rapidly changing pressure waves cause the targeted fat cells to rupture, releasing triglycerides that are processed by the liver and eliminated naturally.
The specific wavelength affects fat cell walls only, which means that UltraShape does not damage any surrounding tissue, nerves or muscles. The whole treatment experience is comfortable and requires no downtime – you can receive an UltraShape treatment and then hit the yoga studio right after! There are many great benefits of this non-invasive procedure:
- Permanent fat removal
- Safe ultrasound technology
- No surgery or downtime
- No pain or discomfort
- Results in as little as 2 weeks
Patients can lose an average of 1-3 inches around their waist, and visible results can be seen in 2-4 weeks after your first UltraShape treatment. Individual results will vary, and for the best results, we recommend a series of three treatments, two weeks apart. In addition, UltraShape results can be long-lasting if the patient maintains a healthy diet and lifestyle.
Am I a good candidate for UltraShape?
If you maintain a healthy lifestyle and eat a good diet, but are still struggling with unwanted, excess fat in your abdominal area, you may be a candidate for UltraShape. UltraShape is a great option for men and women who aren’t ready or quite right for a full surgical procedure of liposuction. The overall results, however, will be fantastic and enhance your desired figure. This procedure can also produce great outcomes when paired with liposuction.
