UltraShape, a Non-Surgical Liposuction Fat Reduction Procedure, Offered in Toronto by Dr. Mulholland, Gets FDA Approval

With the Recent FDA Approval of the UltraShape Procedure (Syneron, Israel), Patients Can Now Undergo These Non-Surgical Treatments and See Permanent Fat Reduction Results That Rival Those of Traditional Liposuction, Safely and Effectively Without Going Under the Knife

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - May 14, 2014) - In a recent feature on Canadian national TV, Dr. Stephen Mulholland and his SpaMedica colleague, Dr. Zel Krajden, have discussed the UltraShape procedure and the growing excitement around non-surgical liposuction fat reduction, which allows doctors to use gentle ultrasound waves to permanently remove several centimeters of unwanted fat. Both Dr. Mulholland and Dr. Krajden have been at the forefront of non-surgical liposuction technology, using the latest and most advanced devices to treat their patients at Dr. Mulholland's Toronto facility, SpaMedica.

Dr. Stephen Mulholland, a world renowned Toronto cosmetic plastic surgeon and owner of SpaMedica, a Toronto Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Centre and MedSpa, has worked with the UltraShape technology for over 7 years and is scheduled to speak at a product launch conference in California later this month, teaching and demonstrating this newly FDA cleared non-surgical fat reduction technology to prominent Los Angeles area cosmetic physicians.

"With some of our new non-invasive fat reduction technology, we can now offer non-surgical liposuction-like results, permanently removing focal fat, safely and effectively without the need to go under the knife. Recently a new device called the UltraShape was approved by the FDA, which is a unique technology that uses gentle focused ultrasound waves to kill fat cells without damaging the skin or causing pain. The UltraShape is unique in that it kills several centimeters of fat painlessly, using high energy focused ultrasound," explains Dr. Mulholland. "Where other technologies that kill fat may be painful, the UltraShape is effective yet painless. After 3 treatments, every two weeks for 6 weeks, patients, on average, will see a reduction of 3-4 cm," says Dr. Mulholland.

"My Los Angeles teaching workshop will focus on the UltraShape basic science and treatment process and parameters. I think UltraShape will become one of the most popular non-surgical fat reduction procedures in the United States," predicted Dr. Mulholland.

Liposuction is still the most popular cosmetic plastic surgery procedure performed in North America, with over 1 million liposuctions performed in 2013. However, there are many more North American patients who would like to shed those stubborn few inches but have concerns about undergoing liposuction surgery. Such patients now have a viable non-surgical fat reduction treatment that achieves liposuction-like results without surgery, pain and downtime.

Combining UltraShape with other non-invasive fat reducing technologies, such as VelaShape, BodyFX, Venus Freeze, Liposonix, Zeltique CoolSculpting or Excelis,  is growing in popularity and may soon become the most commonly performed cosmetic fat reduction procedures for both men and women.
