What is UltraShape?
UltraShape is the first and only FDA-cleared, non-invasive body-shaping procedure that uses focused, pulsed ultrasound for selective fat-cell destruction. It’s not like anything out there, and it is now available at Petrungaro Plastic Surgery!
Unlike liposuction, UltraShape is non-surgical—which means no incisions, anesthetics, or recovery time.
And unlike other fat-reduction procedures that use heat or freeze fat, UltraShape is painless and leaves no visible signs of treatment. So you can hit the doctor’s office, then hit your yoga class in a cropped top the same day.
All you’re left with are smooth, contoured results, often seen as quickly as 2 weeks after the first treatment. No wonder UltraShape has a RealSelf rating of over 90%.
What will UltraShape Do? (And what it won’t do.)
UltraShape eliminates fat cells permanently. It differs from weight loss, which can only shrink fat cells.
What UltraShape won’t do is cause you pain or harm surrounding tissue, nerves, or muscle. No wonder a clinical study showed 94% of people treated were satisfied with their results. Tell that to your personal torturer—er, trainer.
Before and After Ultrashape Photos
The science behind the slimming…
UltraShape ultrasound energy superheats and destroys the fat cells in the area of your body being treated, releasing the fat in the form of triglycerides. The triglycerides are then processed through the liver and eliminated from the body naturally. The surrounding tissue, nerves, and muscle are left unharmed.
The UltraShape Procedure
The UltraShape procedure is a pleasant, relaxing experience. It’s nonsurgical, so there are no incisions or anesthetics.
After you and Doctor Petrungaro determine the exact treatment area, a specially designed belt will be wrapped around your abdomen and a soothing gel will be applied onto your skin. Doctor Petrungaro or his nurse will glide the UltraShape transducer over the treatment area, gently delivering painless ultrasound pulses. Treatments take an hour or less, so you can take it easy, while UltraShape takes care of your excess fat.
The Skinny on Stubborn Belly Fat
There are two major types of fat in your body: visceral (fat that forms around your organs) and subcutaneous (fat that forms under the surface of your skin).
While eating right and working out can help reduce visceral fat, subcutaneous fat can be difficult to lose. UltraShape targets and eliminates stubborn (subcutaneous) belly fat that’s resistant to diet and exercise. UltraShape does not treat visceral fat.
While costs can vary between doctors and different areas of the country, prices range, on average, between $1,200 to $1,400 per treatment. While 3 treatments are recommended, your physician will determine the number of treatments you will need.
