What is UltraShape®?

Ultrashape® is the first FDA-cleared non-invasive body-shaping procedure for selective fat destruction. Similar treatments rely on heat or cold to eliminate stubborn fat, but UltraShape® uses ultrasound technology to contour your body with no discomfort or downtime.

During treatment, ultrasound energy is delivered below the skin’s surface and directly into areas of concern, where it produces a mechanical, acoustic effect that causes the breakdown of treated fat cells. UltraShape® selectively targets unwanted fat, so the surrounding skin, tissues and blood vessels remain intact. Afterward, destroyed fat cells are naturally eliminated by the body’s waste removal system, leaving behind smoother and slimmer contours.

Ideal Candidates for UltraShape®

Sometimes, diet and exercise aren’t enough to reach your body goals. No matter what you try, unwanted fat can linger on the flanks and abdomen due to factors like age, genetics or hormones. If you’re struggling to lose those last few inches, UltraShape® can eliminate stubborn pockets of localized fat and resculpt your waistline, but it is not recommended for those seeking major weight loss. Instead, it precisely targets common problem areas to create a more proportionate, pleasing body shape that reflects your fitness efforts. UltraShape® works best when used in combination with a healthy, active lifestyle. You may need more than one session to reach your goals, but Dr. Maas and the team at The Appearance Care Center™ will develop a treatment plan tailored to your exact needs. Whether you want to eliminate excess stomach fat or bulges around your sides, UltraShape® can address these problem areas and help you feel more confident about your body contours.

Ideal candidates for UltraShape® include patients who:

  • Prefer a non-surgical solution to fat reduction
  • Are at or near their desired weight (BMI under 30)
  • Want to put the finishing touches on their body goals
  • Struggle with stubborn fat on the abdomen or flanks
  • Want real, permanent results without downtime
  • Understand treatment isn’t a shortcut to weight loss
  • Have reasonable expectations

What to Expect During Treatment

UltraShape® treatments are quick and easy to complete. When you arrive for your appointment, you’ll lie back comfortably as your provider applies a gel to your flanks or abdomen and glides a handheld device over these treatment areas. As the device moves across your body, it will deliver ultrasound energy beneath the skin’s surface to a precise depth, targeting unwanted fat cells and causing them to rupture. You’ll feel no pain or discomfort as this happens, but you may notice a slight vibration or warming sensation.

Each treatment area takes roughly 30 minutes to complete, with an entire UltraShape® session typically lasting between one and two hours. Afterward, you’ll be able to return home and immediately resume your normal routine with no downtime, recovery or activity restrictions. Over the following weeks, your results will begin to appear as the body naturally eliminates and disposes of the treated fat cells.

UltraShape® Results

UltraShape® can produce considerable improvements after just a few treatment sessions, but results can take some time to develop as your body works to eliminate the targeted fat cells. Most patients report a noticeable difference as soon as two weeks after the initial treatment. Results will continue to develop over the next couple of months and will become more dramatic with each additional session. The most improvement will be seen following a full cycle of treatment. If you have other concerns, like loose skin or cellulite, you can further enhance your results with other non-surgical procedures such as VelaShape or CoolTone.

On average, clinical studies show that patients experience a 32 percent reduction in abdominal fat and lose 2.5 cm around the waistline after a series of three treatments. UltraShape® permanently eliminates treated fat cells, so your results are permanent as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle. Once removed, the fat is destroyed and cannot regrow, but other nearby fat cells can increase in size if you gain a significant amount of weight. Many patients find that UltraShape® and other body contouring treatments can inspire them to maintain healthier habits and help them reach their weight loss goals more quickly.


Is UltraShape® safe?

UltaShape is cleared by the FDA for non-invasive destruction of fat in the abdominal area. Clinical trials and over 300,000 treatments worldwide have shown the procedure to be a safe and effective way to target common problem areas like the stomach or sides.

Are UltraShape® treatments painful?

During treatment, you may feel a slight vibration or warming sensation as the ultrasound waves penetrate into the layers of fatty tissue, but no pain or discomfort. Afterward, there will be no soreness, numbness or visible signs of treatment. Side effects with UltraShape® are also rare.

How much downtime is there with UltraShape®?

Other body contouring treatments can leave you feeling stiff or sore after your appointment. With UltraShape®, you can get back to your daily activities immediately because there is no downtime. You also won’t have to worry about additional side effects like bleeding or bruising.

How many treatments of UltraShape® will I need?

Most patients undergo at least three UltraShape® sessions to achieve the best results, but this can vary depending on your personal needs and goals. Treatments can be safely repeated as needed, but should be spaced two weeks apart to give your body the time it needs to clear the fat cells from your system.

Is UltraShape® permanent?

While the treated fat cells are destroyed and cannot regrow, the remaining fat cells can still expand in size. It is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle and habits following UltraShape®.

Where does the fat go?

The destroyed fat cells are broken down by your body, processed by the liver, and then eliminated naturally, just like other fats.

How is UltraShape® different from other body shaping treatments?

UltraShape® is a non-invasive fat destruction procedure that uses ultrasound energy to target subcutaneous fat and reduce abdominal circumference. The technology uses pulsed ultrasound, which provides more control over temperature elevation. Because UltraShape® does not rely on extreme temperatures to eliminate unwanted fat cells, it is more comfortable than body contouring procedures that heat or freeze stubborn body fat. It also leaves behind no visible signs of treatment, other than a slimmer waistline.
