For some patients, getting rid of stubborn body fat just seems impossible, no matter how rigorously they exercise, or diligently they diet. If you’re looking for a safe, effective, and state-of-the-art solution for eliminating body fat, then body sculpting is for you. Venkata J. Bireddy, MD, and the team of medical professionals at Medi Clinics Primary Care LLC in Tampa, Florida, can help you eliminate your unwanted body fat with the UltraShape® Power. To learn more, schedule a visit today by calling the office or requesting an appointment.
Body sculpting is a noninvasive and nonsurgical procedure that eliminates unwanted fat on your body. Medi Clinics Primary Care LLC uses the UltraShape Power by Candela™ for its body sculpting procedures.
The UltraShape Power is designed to reduce fat from your abdomen and flanks. It works by using ultrasound technology to destroy the fat cells beneath the surface of your skin. Because the ultrasound energy is targeted, UltraShape Power eliminates your fat cells without causing any damage to your surrounding tissue. Once the walls of your fat cells have ruptured, the fat is released as triglycerides, which your liver processes and removes from your body. The United States Food and Drug Administration approved its use by trusted providers in 2016.
It’s important to note that body sculpting is not a weight loss solution, but rather a fat-reduction procedure. Though you might lose weight by eliminating your fat cells, the goal of the procedure is not weight loss.
Body sculpting with the UltraShape Power is incredibly effective in removing fat from your target areas. A clinical study demonstrated a 32%reduction in the thickness of patients’ abdominal fat layer after treatment with the UltraShape Power. It can treat both small and large areas and can even treat areas that are tattooed.
Your fat cells don’t grow back after they’ve been eliminated, so your body sculpting results will be long-lasting. Other fat cells that weren’t removed from your targeted area can continue to grow, so you need to maintain a healthy diet and a consistent exercise routine to maintain optimal results.
Dr. Bireddy performs your body sculpting with a quick and easy procedure that’s painless, involves no downtime, and requires no analgesics or cooling.
First, Dr. Bireddy covers your target area with a gel, and then he puts a special belt around your abdomen. Next, he carefully rubs the ultrasound transducer over your treatment area. You might feel a warm or tingling sensation as the transducer delivers focused ultrasound energy to the fat areas beneath your skin. With a continual series of pulses, the ultrasound waves destroy the walls of your fat cell membranes and eliminate your unwanted fatty areas.
The whole treatment takes about an hour and involves little to no recovery time. In a 2016 study, almost 100% of patients reported that the procedure was comfortable. Most patients resume their daily activities immediately after the procedure. You should start seeing results in as little as two weeks. To optimize your results, you should have three treatments, each spaced two weeks apart.
