Having excess fat on your body can be bad for your overall health and can be extremely frustrating. Perhaps you've tried to lose excess fat through a healthy diet and exercise regimen, but find that you can't shed fat from certain areas. If this sounds like you, you may be a good candidate for UltraShape.
UltraShape is a new FDA-approved, non-surgical procedure that helps to remove fat from troublesome areas. UltraShape can be used to lessen fat pockets in areas like your love-handles or stomach without being invasive like liposuction.
If you're interested in shedding excess fat without a surgical procedure, please contact our New York City dermatologist, Dr. Bruce Katz. He has a wide breadth of experience and has the skills to perform your procedure for maximum results. To schedule a consultation appointment, call (888) 610-3133.
How Does UltraShape Work?
UltraShape is a procedure designed to destroy fat so you can lose those stubborn fat cells without having to undergo surgery. Our Manhattan dermatologist will use the UltraShape machine to shoot acoustic waves of ultrasonic energy into the areas you have excess fat. These waves will target fat cells by pulsing ultrasound waves into the treated area.
Some other non-surgical fat removal procedures like UltraShape will utilize ultrasound waves to destroy fat cells by heating or cooling the fat cells. UltraShape allows Dr. Katz to control the temperature of the waves so that fat destruction happens immediately, without discomfort. UltraShape also offers Dr. Katz the ability to be selective and methodical in choosing the fat cells that are destroyed.
UltraShape is usually performed in three treatments, at two week intervals. Each appointment will be around 45 minutes long. Shortly after each treatment, you should notice a small change in your stomach. After the third treatment, you'll notice that you've lost fat in the treated area.

One of the major benefits of UltraShape is that it is a painless procedure, but there are several other benefits including:
