Munster, IN (PRWEB) October 01, 2015
Jason M. Petrungaro, MD, FACS, a Munster-based board certified Plastic Surgeon and founder of Petrungaro Plastic Surgery, debuts UltraShape®, a breakthrough treatment recently FDA-cleared for fat cell destruction.
As the first and only FDA-approved non-invasive body contouring system of its kind, UltraShape delivers measurable fat reduction to the abdominal area (an average loss of 1.3 – 2.5 inches) without the threats associated with other fat reduction procedures.
“UltraShape adds a whole new dimension to the services we provide,” says Dr. Petrungaro. “I pride myself on being able to give my patients the choice of the newest and most innovative procedures in our field. UltraShape is absolutely one of those. Patients love UltraShape because it is safe, easy, and produces the results it promises.”
UltraShape is the answer to the growing number of people who are looking for a stress-free, efficient, and legitimate way to permanently destroy fat without the pain and downtime commonly associated with other fat reduction procedures. Just about everyone has that stubborn problem area or “pooch” that will not go away with diet and exercise. UltraShape was made for these areas, generating results as quickly as two weeks after the first treatment. In just three 45-minute sessions, many patients have dropped up to two waist sizes.
Continues Dr. Petrungaro, “We live in a very busy world, and many patients have ‘problem areas’ on their bodies that they would love to eliminate but just don’t have the time. UltraShape produces many of the same results as traditional liposuction without the drawbacks, allowing patients to immediately return to work, exercise, and their normal activities. There is no downtime. It can even be done during a lunch break.”
What makes UltraShape unique is its ability to precisely deliver ultrasound energy to a specific area to target and destroy fat cells immediately. Pulsed focused ultrasound energy is used to non-thermally target subcutaneous fat, while keeping the surrounding tissue, blood vessels, nerves, and muscles intact. The treatment is accurate, precise, and it delivers beautifully smooth and symmetric results to each area treated. The fat cells treated are destroyed permanently and not merely emptied of their contents. It is completely painless, requires no incisions, and has no downtime.
In the randomized, controlled clinical study of UltraShape which was performed at three clinical sites in the US and one site outside of the US, a total of 150 subjects were treated and followed for up to four months. Ninety four percent of patients saw a measurable circumferential reduction with 90 percent of patients being satisfied with their treatment outcomes.
