What is new and exciting?

UltraShape ™

the New Non-invasive Fat Buster

may ultrashape ad HomeUltraShape version 3 is a new FDA pending ultrasound technology that is a safe, painless procedure with no associated bruising, swelling, or downtime and which can consistently reduce unwanted bulges of fat permanently in just three sessions. How does it work? First because the treatment is painless no anesthesia or injections are required. UltraShape™ delivers focused sound waves that penetrate through the skin and selectively targets and mechanically disrupts only fat cells. The procedure takes approximately one hour and is performed in an office treatment room. The overlying skin and surrounding tissues remain unharmed. Following the UltraShape™ treatment you can resume your normal daily routine immediately. Within weeks (not months) patients see a significant reduction in the circumference of their abdomen and thighs. Patients often report that their clothing fits better. Most patients experience a significant flattening of their belly fat ( ~3 inches) after three treatments-spaced two weeks apart. However, Ultra Shape ver 3 is not a weight loss program and therefore you should continue to exercise and eat a healthy balanced diet in order to maintain the improvement in your body contour. Patient selection is very important and an in-depth consultation with Dr. Kopelman prior to the procedure will allow you to determine if you are a good candidate for Ultra Shape or some other treatment option. If you are extremely overweight this is not the ideal method to change your shape. Ultra Shape cannot re-contour the body to the same extent that liposuction can but for patients who are seeking a safe non-invasive  alternative to liposuction UltraShape ver 3 is the best technology available. Come discover the latest generation of non-invasive body contouring technology at Kopelman Aesthetic Surgery Center. To discover more about this exciting new procedure contact our patient coordinator, Ms. Anne Lembersky, at (201)-444-4499  to set up a consultation.
