For many women and men who suffer from excess fatty deposits on their tummy, thighs, and hips, non-invasive fat removal was only a fantasy in the past. People who consider liposuction often dismiss the idea quickly because they don’t want to have to go through surgery to get the results that they want.
The newest fat removal innovation in the surgical field is actually non-surgical, making it the first – and only – treatment of its kind. UltraShape V3 is a handheld device that is expertly applied by a cosmetic surgeon who is trained in this type of highly advanced soundwave technology.
How UltraShape V3 Works
The UltraShape V3 system uses a cutting-edge 3D computer map to plan treatment. Dr. Patterson will plan the treatment areas using patient input, making sure that all of the stubborn fatty deposits and surrounding areas of concern are addressed. The device is positioned to access each area individually. It will then be used to carefully mold the body into the desired contours by destroying fat cells. This is a sharp contrast to weight loss, which only shrinks the fat cells. The fat cells that are destroyed during the treatment are then reduced into their base form, triglycerides. The liver then harmlessly processes those triglycerides and eliminates them from the body.
Each treatment session generally takes about 45 minutes to one hour. Treatments are typically scheduled about two weeks apart to allow for ideal fat reduction results. Most patients have three treatments in total, although some people may require less or more. During the treatments, patients generally feel no pain at all, making it a very different experience than surgical fat reduction techniques like liposuction.
UltraShape V3 Recovery and Results
The results of UltraShape V3 treatments will vary according to patient, but many people see results as early as the first session. Over the course of the treatment sessions, people can expect to melt away a couple of inches or even more from their problem areas. People who have UltraShape V3 treatments in the abdominal area generally experience a minimum reduction of between 1.3 and 2.5 inches in the waist area. The difference is typically enough to bring about a dramatic physical change, where clothes fit better and feel better. Further, most people notice a positive visual change in their appearance, as do their family and friends.
Recovery from UltraShape V3 is typically extremely easy for most patients. In fact, there is no downtime required. If desired, patients can even schedule an UltraShape V3 treatment during their lunch hour and then go back to work immediately. Since there is no general anesthesia or sedation required, most people view an UltraShape V3 treatment as something that is no different than any other medical appointment. Nobody will be aware that you had the treatment unless you decide to tell them about it!
