When you’re unhappy with excess fat or want to improve your body’s contours, you may think your only option is to have plastic surgery. While some people’s goals can only be met with plastic surgery, many people are good candidates for nonsurgical body sculpting. Here’s how to know if these nonsurgical alternatives are right for you.
1. You Have Minimal Skin Laxity
If your concern is a small amount of excess fat but you don’t have loose, saggy skin, then a nonsurgical body contouring treatment, such as UltraShape®, may be an option for you. This noninvasive treatment emits ultrasonic waves into the skin to target and destroy subcutaneous fat cells. * This procedure is best suited for individuals who want to target specific pockets of fat but do not have excess, saggy skin, which requires surgery to remove.
2. You Want a No-Downtime Procedure
Not only can UltraShape® be effective, but because it’s nonsurgical, it also requires no downtime.* UltraShape® is often called a “lunchtime procedure” because it doesn’t produce bruising or swelling or require any time off of work or away from normal activities.*
UltraShape® is extremely versatile and can be used to target fatty deposits on stomach, thighs, love handles and more, although multiple treatment sessions may be required.*
3. You Want to Improve Contours
UltraShape® is FDA-approved to destroy subcutaneous fat cells, targeting problem spots that may not respond to diet or exercise.* To determine if you’re a good candidate for a nonsurgical body contouring procedure, such as UltraShape®, visit a board-certified plastic surgeon for a personalized consultation.
