Aging, genetics, and lifestyle can take a toll on the body and add extra volume and fat to areas that used to respond well to diet and exercise. Liposuction and UltraShape are both great ways to contour the body and look slimmer. But what are the differences?
Liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures and is the gold standard for fat reduction. However, it is surgical and invasive. Liposuction removes fat from your body using a small tube that is inserted through tiny incisions in the skin. Fat is suctioned out under the skin from targeted areas of fat deposits. Liposuction is a very effective form of removing fat deposits in small areas.
UltraShape removes fat through ultrasound technology. This procedure shakes the fat cells until they collapse and the destroyed fat cell particles are filtered through the liver and digested through the body naturally over the course of the next few weeks. The results are more natural fat loss and you will not see a drastic change overnight unlike liposuction. Unlike liposuction, UltraShape Power is nonsurgical which means no incisions, anesthetics, or recovery time. And unlike other fat-reduction procedures that use heat or freeze fat, UltraShape Power is painless and leaves no visible signs of treatment. Ultrashape is a great option for people who do not want to lose a drastic amount of weight or who are not willing to go under the knife, but who still have issues with fat deposits.
There are similarities in these body contouring procedures — neither is a substitute for diet or exercise and neither are intended to be weight loss solutions. If you have more than a few pounds to lose, a surgical weight loss procedure may be for you.
