San Diego, CA (PRWEB) June 23, 2011

New Image Cosmetic Surgery is now offering non-surgical spot fat reduction with the VASER Shape, a new body shaping device which can deliver some of the results of liposuction with no surgery or downtime.

The VASER® Shape technology uses ultrasound, which is known to disrupt fat cells. “The system combines two ultrasonic signals that penetrate and combine under the skin to heat the fat cells,” says Jeffry B. Schafer, M.D., FRSM, medical director of New Image Cosmetic Surgery, and one of the world’s leading authorities on liposuction and fat transfer. While VASER Shape treatments don't remove as much fat as liposuction, Dr. Schafer says it is effective for trimming small areas of the body. "The front of the knees, the thighs, the lower abdomen where there is not quite enough fat to require liposuction," he says.

“I have been in practice since 1978 and have been performing liposuction for the past 16 years,” says Dr. Schafer. “The VASER Shape is the first non-surgical fat reduction device that I determined to be effective enough to introduce to my patients.”

Dr. Jeffry B.Schafer has been called the "Father of Modern Laser Liposuction". As a Cynosure "Center of Excellence" his office has mentored over 100 Physicians and twenty nurse trainers in the beginning of laser lypolysis. He developed the method of Superficial Skin Tightening and the concept of measuring skin temperature for safe and accurate results. He was instrumental in the development of the technology for Slim Lipo by Palomar and contributed to their teaching guidelines and evaluations as one of their "Centers of Excellence".

June Hill, HHP is a Body Contouring Specialist at New Image Cosmetic Surgery. “Every patient I have treated so far has lost between one and seven inches in combined measurements, in one hour,” she says. Most patients will see immediate results with VASER Shape – and treatments for most people are recommended in a series of 5-7 treatments, at about 20-30 minutes each, with treatments spaced every 5 to 7 days. (The speed of the results varies based on the patient.) After the initial treatments are completed, no additional follow-up treatments are required.

VASER Shape is designed for spot fat reduction and can be especially effective for men and women of average weight who are already maintaining a relatively healthy lifestyle. VASER Shape can be used to reduce unwanted fat from common problem areas including: inner & outer thighs, love handles, abdomen & the upper and lower back.

VASER Shape will produce subtle yet noticeable results, and is a good match for patients who want to lose a few inches without surgery. Those who are looking to lose larger volumes of fat may better candidates for liposuction, according to Dr. Schafer.
