Procedures to Treat Excess Body Fat


Localized, focused areas of excess fat are often difficult to shrink with diet and exercise alone as exercise usually leads to generalized slimming rather than localized reduction.  Excess body fat reduction may be the treatment you are looking for.  


At SpaMedica, one of Canada’s leaders in non-invasive plastic surgery, laser surgery and non-invasive body contouring, the localized areas of focal fat accumulation can be treated with non surgical devices using energy sources such as: ultrasound (UltraShape), radio frequency energy, suction infrared energy (VelaShape and VelaSmooth), pure radio frequency energy such as: the Tite FX and Thermage Body, as well as non invasive energies such as Zerona Laser Slimming Device and the Triactive. At SpaMedica, we have a number of non-invasive devices that can provide circumference reduction of unwanted areas of localized fat, with no risk, recovery or downtime.

Procedure Details

The localized area of excess body fat can compromise aesthetic balance and proportion and can be aesthetically displeasing, especially in tight clothing, bathing wear or when unclothed. Localized, focused areas of excess body fat are often difficult to shrink with diet and exercise alone as exercise usually leads to generalized slimming rather than localized reduction.


Despite having successful and popular non invasive local fat reduction treatment modalities, one of the most common and most efficient ways to treat focal localized areas of unwanted fat still remains liposuction. Liposuction is the most commonly performed cosmetic procedures in North America with almost 1 million procedure performed annually.


VelaShape and UltraShape 

The SpaMedica non-surgical liposuction and fat reduction program combines the best possible technologies proven to have the most efficacious permanent fat cell reduction outcomes, giving our patients the best results possible.  There is no surgery required, no anesthesia and no local anesthetic needed to perform the procedure.


Most patients are extremely happy with the results of their body contouring because they realize no diet and exercise can, in a localized and focal way, reduce unwanted bulges and contours, such as pots, bra lines, love handles, saddlebags, bat wings and inner thigh/inner knee fat the way SmartLipo™ does.


Dr. Mulholland has been a BodyTite™ pioneer and is one of the world’s foremost BodyTite™ experts. Published studies show upwards of 35% area contraction, giving the most profound opportunity for reciprocal soft tissue contraction and synchronous removal of fat.
