UltraShape is an innovative new fat ‘melting’ technology that is currently approved for use in Canada, Europe, South America, and Asia. UltraShape is one of many plastic surgery alternatives emerging as a less risky fat reduction process compared to traditional liposuction.
For those of you dying to try UltraShape in the U.S., the wait may be almost over. The FDA agreed to shorten the submission process for UltraShape’s Contour I system, hence paving the way for the procedure to be approved in the States.
What is UltraShape?
UltraShape is a non-invasive alternative to fat-reducing surgeries like liposuction. Proven to reduce fat deposits and girth in both men and women, UltraShape is a unique body-contouring procedure that works by dissolving fat cells in targeted areas.
UltraShape delivers focused ultrasound to the selected treatment area, which could include thighs, love handles, or abdomen. The fat membranes are then disrupted, transported through the lymphatic or vascular systems and processed by the liver. To put it simply, your body handles the fat in the same way it would handle ingested fat. But, once UltraShape kills off fat cells, they’re permanently gone.
Pros and Cons
The pros of the procedure are significant – there’s no pain, no anesthesia, no side effects and no downtime. The advanced product software helps to guide the energy dispersement for even contouring, preventing some of the lumpy irregularities than can occur in liposuction. UltraShape, when effective, should smooth and slim your lady lumps in just six sessions of 45-60 minutes.
The downside of UltraShape can be summed up pretty easily – it doesn’t always produce results. Doctors and patients alike want a procedure that will guarantee some physical change, but some reviews of UltraShape have complained of little to no alteration in appearance. Not to mention that it’s still pending FDA approval.
UltraShape announced recently that the FDA has allowed the company to submit under the 510(k) regulation rather than Pre-Market Approval. The 510(k) path should simplify UltraShape’s clearance process for the Contour I machine.
