Toronto Cosmetic Clinic introduces UltraShape®, the revolutionary new way to slim down in three easy treatments. No surgery, no pills, and no anesthesia – just a technologically advanced system that fights the bulge with patented ultrasound therapy.
Because it's a non surgical fat removal method, there's no downtime, with very rare side effects, you can just drop by during your lunch hour for a session then get back to work or your normal activities. It's that easy.
Find out more about UltraShape® by calling 416-221-5554 to book your complimentary consultation with a patient consultant. During your consultation, you'll discuss the technology behind UltraShape® and whether the procedure is appropriate to achieve your goals and fulfill your expectations. You'll also find out whether other cosmetic treatments, surgical or nonsurgical, are more suitable for you.
If you're a man or woman who can't eliminate those stubborn bulges through healthy exercise and diet, and don't want to undergo surgery, then this nonsurgical fat reduction technique may be for you!
UltraShape® is based on a high tech way of destroying fat, without the pain associated with other cosmetic treatments. Designed to focus on the abdomen, love handles located on the sides and a portion of the lower back, and external thighs (also known as saddlebags), only the unwanted fat cells are targeted. Surrounding tissues, including blood vessels and nerves, are not harmed during the procedure. A single session typically ranges from 45 to 60 minutes, depending on factors such as the individual and the number/size of areas on the body targeted.
Ultrasound energy is smoothly delivered by the device through a hand-held transducer which glides over the targeted area, clearly marked prior to the procedure. This therapeutic energy penetrates the skin at a specific depth, targeting the fat cells in the subcutaneous layer of the designated area to disrupt their membranes, which in turn disperses their contents into the surrounding fluids. These fluids then carry away the contents, which are mainly triglycerides, and are naturally processed by the body's physiological systems in the same way it would proceed with weight loss. A portion is used as calories and the remaining is processed as waste by the liver. Clinical studies have shown that triglycerides released by the UltraShape® device do not significantly accumulate in the blood or liver.
The procedure is virtually painless according to most patients.
After the Procedure
You can get right back to work immediately following a session because there are generally no side effects related to this procedure. You won't even need to come in for a followup visit. In the time after a session, you'll notice a gradual improvement in the appearance of your body contour. 3 or more sessions are generally required to achieve the desired results.
In order to determine whether this solution is suitable for you, a consultation will be arranged with a patient consultant to discuss your goals and assess your physiology. Your facial structure will also be examined. In the event nonsurgical methods are unsuitable or cannot achieve desirable results, surgical jaw line sculpting may be the best solution.

NonSurgical UltraShape FAQ's
UltraShape® is a nonsurgical method of fat removal. Utilizing ultrasound energy, stubborn pockets of subcutaneous fat are targeted. Unwanted fat cells are disrupted and then dispersed so that the body may naturally reprocess them as energy or to be used for other functions.
UltraShape® does not harm surrounding nerves, muscle, collagen or other tissue in the targeted area. It can be performed following liposuction.
Basically, any man or woman who wants to get rid of stubborn deposits of fat that cannot be eliminated by regular exercise and diet. Please note that UltraShape® is not a method of weight loss. For your safety, a specific amount of fat may be required in the targeted area and your BMI may be measured prior to the procedure. A BMI of under 30 is required.
The procedure may not be suitable for those with specific hereditary diseases and high cholesterol, as well as for pregnant women. Other individuals who cannot undergo the procedure include those with hepatitis, an immune system disease or an open wound in the area to be targeted. The patient consultant will provide more information during your complimentary consultation.
Individuals taking medication that affects fat metabolism are not eligible for this procedure.
For decades, liposuction has been the most popular choice in North America and around the world for the removal of subcutaneous fat, including stubborn fat in the hips, flanks, thighs and abdomen. It is an effective treatment that achieves results that last as long as a healthy lifestyle is followed. However, because it is a surgical procedure, it involves side effects and risks that are related to the technique as well as the administration of anesthesia. There is also a period of recovery (known as "downtime") that may require time off from work or other normal activities.
UltraShape®, on the other hand, is not a surgical procedure and few, if any, side effects and risks have been recorded. There is no downtime involved and patients can return to normal activities immediately after a session. Because the treatment has been described as painless, anesthesia is not required, eliminating the side effects and risks related to it.
UltraShape® is ideal for those who cannot take the time off from their normal routine to undergo cosmetic surgery for unwanted fat removal. Sessions can be done during a lunch hour, typically taking up to an hour.
While liposuction typically requires only one procedure to obtain desirable results, UltraShape® normally requires up to three.
UltraShape® is designed to focus on the abdomen, flanks and thighs.
No anesthesia is required since the procedure is virtually painless! In fact, many patients have reported it to be a comfortable experience.
The procedure will take place after an initial consultation with a patient consultant to ensure UltraShape® is suitable for you.
Photos will be taken so that you may measure your progress. You will undergo a brief examination, during which the area to be treated is measured and marked. A handheld device is then used to deliver the ultrasound energy over the area. The length of treatment depends on the extent of correction desired and the number of areas targeted.
The device is equipped with advanced tracking technology so that the resulting contour in the treated area is smooth and even.
As the transducer passes over the body, there may be a light tingling sensation or warmth. Once all of the desired areas have been treated, the procedure is complete.
Right after your session, you'll be able to resume regular activities immediately.
Because the disrupted fat is naturally processed by the body's mechanisms, it is best that patients follow a healthy diet and regular exercise program following each session to achieve ideal results.
This depends on the extent of correction desired. Usually, three treatments may be required although your specific situation may require more or less. Each session is scheduled on a monthly basis. This allows the body to naturally reprocess the disrupted fat cells.
Other areas on the body may be targeted during this time.
Unless fat deposits accumulate or weight gain is experienced, no follow up or maintenance sessions are required.
Generally, you'll notice an improvement in the area treated after about 3 weeks. However, this may vary depending on your body and lifestyle.
In trials, UltraShape® achieved a reduction of 2cm in the circumference of a treated area after a single session! The treated areas included the abdomen, love handles and outer thighs.
You'll have lasting results if you follow a healthy diet and exercise regimen.
