Short overview of the surgery/procedure:

1 in 3 women say they have considered more than changing their diet and increasing their exercise to get rid of their fat. In fact, many of us have spent hours in the gym and deprived ourselves of our favorite foods to look and feel better. Unfortunately, all that torture isn’t always enough. UltraShape is a non-invasive procedure proven to target and destroy stubborn body fat. This completely pain-free procedure uses focused, pulsed ultrasound to provide real results without heat or cold.

Over 300,000 UltraShape treatments have been performed world-wide. Patients trust UltraShape to help eliminate the fat that even diet and exercise can’t touch. Many patients experience visible results within just two weeks of the first treatment and see full results after a three-treatment series.

Why you should want this surgery/procedure (the benefits of it)

UltraShape painlessly destroys stubborn body fat with visible results in just two week. After a series of three quick, completely comfortable treatments patients can achieve a noticeably slimmer figure. When combined with exercise and a healthy diet, patients can lose up to two sizes. Best of all, the treatments are quick, pain-free and completely non-invasive. You can have the treatment and get right back to daily life without skipping a beat.

Common misconceptions or FAQs about the surgery/procedure
