UltraShape Fat Removal in New York

UltraShape-The Shape of Things to ComeThough traditional liposuction boasts many benefits, they don’t come without surgical risks such as bleeding, bruising, anesthesia, infection, and tissue damage. UltraShape1 is one of a variety of new non-invasive body contouring, fat clearing systems on the verge of entering the United States. It provides a safe, virtually painless way to sculpt stubborn areas that diet and exercise can’t always improve such as:

  • Buttocks
  • Abdomen
  • Love handles
  • Bra fat lines
  • Back
  • Thighs (“saddlebags”)
  • Arms

How it works?

UltraShape2 focuses ultrasound energy on adipose cells at precisely the correct depth and angle, delivering non-thermal pulsed acoustic waves to fat cells. During this process, surrounding vessels, nerves, tissues, and organs remain unaffected. The ultrasonic waves disrupt the membranes of adipocytes, prompting the body’s natural debris digestion. A unique and advanced software designs a specific treatment program for each patient, minimizing the risk of any contour irregularities.

What is treatment like?

The treatment is typically well-tolerated. Patients of Dr. Rokhsar often use the time to relax, read, or talk during the procedure. Occasional sensations of heat, tingling, or cold may be felt, but these are rare, tolerable, and cause very minimal discomfort. From start to finish it takes less than an hour. Usually, only 3 treatment sessions are needed to achieve up to 4-inch circumference reduction.

UltraShape FAQ

Why is UltraShape an effective treatment?

Ultrashape is an extensively tested non-invasive procedure with measurable results after a couple of weeks. This simple and quick procedure results in most cases in meaningful circumferential reduction after just 3 treatments.

What is UltraShape best used for?

Stubborn deposits of fat are removed using focused ultrasound technology with UltraShape treatments in our NYC office. However, it is not for those that are overweight and is not a permanent solution to weight loss. UltraShape is a body contouring treatment used for those who wish to modestly reduce fat pouches along the body. Those with less than 1.5 centimeters of fat should also not undergo the procedure.

Who is an ideal candidate for the procedure?

An individual seeking a modest reduction in exercise and diet-resistant fat is ideal. Fat provides a certain level of energy to the body and because the body requires a certain amount of fat in order to properly function, patients should maintain a healthy percentage on their body.

How much does UltraShape cost?

The cost of UltraShape can vary depending on various factors such as the area being treated, practice location, and the number of sessions required to achieve the desired results.

You may receive discounts for a package of three treatment sessions, which is recommended for optimal results. The cost of UltraShape may also depend on the size of the treatment area.

The cost of UltraShape can not be covered by health insurance since it is an elective procedure. Our practice accepts CareCredit for payment.

Overall, it is recommended to consult with Dr. Rokhsar, who is trained in UltraShape, to get a detailed quote that includes the cost per session and the number of sessions needed to complete the procedure.

Ultrasonic Cavitation is a similar procedure to UltraShape that uses ultrasound technology to contour the body.

Dr. Rokhsar can advise you of all your options and alternatives including minimally invasive liposuction, coolsculpting, thermitight, or kybella injections depending on your goals and the particulars of your case.
