UltraShape® – Non-Surgical Liposuction
The New Ultrashape® Non-Invasive Fat Cell Destruction and Skin Tightening for a Non-Surgical Alternative to Liposuction Surgery.
If you have unwanted fat deposits you cannot get rid of even with diet and exercise, UltraShape offers non-invasive body sculpting delivering the synergy of focused ultrasound. See visible results in less than two weeks with this proven safe and effective treatment.
Give Your Body the Shape You Want
- Comfortable treatment
- Homogeneous fat reduction throughout the entire targeted treatment area – no irregularities
- No bruising, swelling or downtime with focused ultrasound
- Safe, simple, “walk-in, walk-out” procedure
- Long-lasting measurable results within just a few weeks!
Safe and Simple: No Surgery, Incisions, Needles or Anesthesia
UltraShape® is a comfortable treatment that instantly, selectively and permanently breaks down fat cells in the target area as well as tightens the skin, leaving blood vessels, nerves and skin unharmed. The fat cell content is safely cleared by the natural metabolic processes.
The UltraShape pulsed focused ultrasound technology has been used in hundreds of thousands of treatments in over 50 countries. An average of 4cm* circumference reduction has been demonstrated after 3 treatments. The safety and effectiveness of the UltraShape procedure is supported by clinical studies of over 550 patients.

A Quick “Walk-In, Walk-Out” Treatment
UltraShape’s treatment is performed by a trained professional in your doctor’s clinic and takes about an hour to an hour and a half. UltraShape focused ultrasound does not cause bruising, swelling or post treatment discomfort. After treatment there is no downtime so you can immediately resume your daily routine. With UltraShape there are no follow-up maintenance treatments required. Results are long lasting – fat cells are permanently destroyed.
The UltraShape procedure is designed to treat:
How does UltraShape® work to reduce fat?
The patented UltraShape technology uses a handheld ultrasonic transducer to deliver controlled pulsed focused ultrasound at a precise depth within the fat layer. The technology is selective, meaning that only fat cells are broken down and surrounding important structures such as blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue remain intact. Using a sophisticated tracking system, ensures that the designated area is treated only once for a complete and uniform treatment.
How does the UltraShape procedure differ from other non-invasive ultrasound treatments for body contouring?
UltraShape is the only technology to use pulsed focused ultrasound energy which selectively targets and destroys fat cells in a mechanical, non-thermal way. Some available ultrasound products use non-focused standard ultrasound which cannot break down fat cells. Other products use non-pulsed focused ultrasound which heats up the tissue causing a thermal effect that leads to fat necrosis and is shown to be less selective. UltraShape is the only system available to use a unique real-time tracking and guidance system for 3D mapping of the body’s curvature to ensure complete and uniform energy delivery over the entire treatment area, minimizing the risk of contour irregularities, a common side effect of liposuction.
What clinical data is available on UltraShape?
The UltraShape system has been shown to be safe and effective in a multi-center controlled trials and over 250,000 patient treatments worldwide. There are currently more than 7 peer-reviewed published articles and book chapters on UltraShape.
What happens to the fat that is eliminated by the UltraShape procedure?
During the UltraShape treatment, the membranes of the fat cells are disrupted. The fat cell content, primarily comprised of triglycerides, is dispersed into the fluid between the cells and then transported through the vascular and lymphatic systems to the liver. The liver makes no distinction between fat coming from the UltraShape treatment and fat originating from consumed food. Both are processed via the body’s natural mechanisms.
What parts of the body can be treated with UltraShape?
The UltraShape treatment focuses on the abdomen, thighs (“saddle bags”) and flanks (“love handles”).
What is the minimum or maximum age required to be eligible for treatment with UltraShape?
Treatment is usually recommended for patients over 18 years of age. Legal or regulatory requirements may also set minimum age for medical procedures so patients under 18 should talk with the practice prior to setting a treatment appointment.
Who would be the ideal candidate for UltraShape treatment?
The UltraShape treatment has been designed to help average to overweight men and women acquire an improved body shape and contour. To optimize the results of such treatments, it is recommended that patients adopt a healthy lifestyle. UltraShape offers an effective non-surgical alternative to patients seeking a significant reduction of localized fat deposits without surgery. The ideal patient is one who has already committed to leading a healthy lifestyle.
What are the contraindications to a body shaping treatment with UltraShape?
While UltraShape as a non-invasive treatment is considered to be overall very safe, certain contraindications exist mainly due to an underlying condition they have that may interact with the way in which the system works. Amongst the contraindications to keep in mind are: age less than 18 years, pregnancy, lactating mothers, or anticipated pregnancy, patients with an implanted cardiac defibrillator, pacemaker, or other electromagnetic implant, severe hyperlipidemia or fatty liver, Hepatitis or liver disease, Connective tissue disease, bleeding disorder.
How many treatments are required in order to see a noticeable effect on the body?
Clinical results show an average reduction of four centimeters and as much as ten centimeters after 3 treatments. In independent studies and in commercial use, multiple treatments have shown accumulative circumference reduction and high patient satisfaction. UltraShape recommends 3 treatments spaced 2 weeks apart.
How long do the results last?
The UltraShape treatment destroys fat cells, resulting in a long lasting effect. Obviously, the effects will last much longer if the patient maintains a healthy life style. Because of the definite destruction of fat cells, no maintenance treatments are required.
How long does a patient have to wait between two UltraShape treatments?
UltraShape recommends a short wait time of two weeks, to allow the fat to be cleared via the body’s natural mechanism.
What does the UltraShape treatment feel like?
Most patients report a painless and comfortable experience with side effects being extremely rare. Patients are immediately able to resume to their daily routine.
What type of precautions should the patient follow just after a treatment with UltraShape®
As soon as the session is over, one can immediately resume a daily routine as there is no required recovery period. Patients also state that there is no post-treatment pain or discomfort. The skin surface remains smooth and the fat texture is homogenous. There is no bruising, swelling or skin color change as occurs after a traditional liposuction. It is recommended to maintain a low calorie diet during the 4-5 days following treatment to help the fat clearance process.
