The cost of an UltraShape procedure depends on the number of zones that the patient would like to treat. In general, an UltraShape treatment starts at $1,999 for a 3 treatment package, per zone.
Unlike a traditional liposuction procedure, an UltraShape treatment is completely non-surgical, is performed on top of the skin and boasts a very quick recovery process. In fact, due to the procedure’s non-invasive approach, there is little to no recovery time and patients tend to return to work the day after their procedure.
Most UltraShape treatments take approximately 30 minutes per zone. In general, a session is performed once every two weeks. SpaMedica physicians often recommend undergoing a total of three sessions split out over the course of 6 weeks.
The UltraShape procedure is one of the most established, safest and exciting ways for patients to manage unwanted areas of excess fat. By utilizing advanced ultrasound waves, the UltraShape device targets and removes areas of excess fat. We have all undergone ultrasound treatments and realize, they are painless, same with UltraShape. The ultrasonic waves work by selectively breaking down fat without damaging blood vessels, nerves, or any other tissues. Due to the procedure’s non-invasive approach, there is no anesthesia, bruising, swelling, and recovery time involved. Common areas for treatment include the abdomen, hips, bra line, and thighs.
Dr. Mulholland and Dr. Roskies will often combine UltraShape with other permanent reduction fat technologies, such as BodyFx, SculpSure or CoolSculpting. By combining these fat reduction approaches, the doctors can deliver the absolute BEST permanent fat reduction and skin tightening. SpaMedica’s non-surgical fat destruction program successfully combines the best, non-invasive fat destruction technologies, like CoolSculpting, SculpSure, UltraShape, Evolve and/or the Vanquish.
In truth, there is no particular age restriction for an UltraShape procedure, and there is no specific trait that defines a “good” candidate. Fundamentally, good candidates are patients who want a noticeable reduction of a localized collection of fat without undergoing an invasive surgical procedure such as liposuction. UltraShape and the SpaMedica non-surgical lipo program is about contour and centimeters, NOT weight.
While there are no specific traits that dictate candidacy, there are certain conditions that can make the process more seamless:
Proper Physical Health
Good health and a lack of serious medical conditions are vital for UltraShape procedures. For patients who are looking for more extensive work regarding their fat deposits, SpaMedica recommends selecting a more thorough liposuction procedure.
As is the case with most cosmetic procedures, good UltraShape candidates have realistic expectations concerning the risks and benefits of the procedure.
Please note that patients who are pregnant are not candidates for an UltraShape treatment. In addition, the treatment is not recommended for those who have pacemakers, skin cancers or infections directly in the treatment zone.
Unlike traditional liposuction, UltraShape procedures boasts no recovery.
The state-of-the-art technology involved in an UltraShape procedure makes it easy to predict the results of the body contouring process.
Since the fat deposits are broken down using non-invasive ultrasound technology, UltraShape procedures are completely hands-free and anesthesia-free.
If your weight does not fluctuate much following the procedure, the results of an UltraShape procedure can last for the rest of your life.
Like all procedures, UltraShape procedures come with the risk of potential complications. Dr. Mulholland has been performing these procedures for over 20 years and, after these many years, the risk of a significant complication is extremely low. Although Dr. Mulholland has not seen most of the risks listed below, these UltraShape risks have been reported:
The affected area may feel numb following the procedure, but this side effect is typically temporary.
If you put on weight after your UltraShape procedure, the calories will go to the remaining fat cells and increase in size, compromising your shape results.
After the surgery, it is possible that patients will have difficulty sleeping. However, this should only last a night or two.
It is possible that patients experience swelling after the procedure. However, this should subside after a day.
