Pesky fat around the midsection is bothersome for both women and men. You can spend hours in the gym and eat all the right foods and still find yourself unable to shed those last couple of inches. Surgical procedures to remove unwanted fat can be expensive and require some downtime for a full recovery. Luckily there is an alternative to liposuction to achieve optimal body contouring.
Ultrashape Power® fat removal provides non-invasive, non-surgical elimination of subcutaneous fat in your abdomen, the belly fat you may have struggled endlessly to lose through diet and exercise. This method of targeted fat elimination has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration for this purpose and is very safe, painless and easily completed through a series of three office sessions with an average loss of 1-3 inches!
This is spot fat reduction, something that can’t be done in the gym or with diet. Your targeted fat is treated through mechanical disruption of fat cells using ultrasound technology while you comfortably lie back and relax. This process is much easier than the hours you have spent at the gym, yet the results are likely to be much clearer.
After your session of ultrasound fat elimination, you are able to return to your daily routine without any side effects or physical indications that you were treated for removal of your stubborn belly fat. No one else will even know you received body contouring treatments, either.
Benefits and Common Treatment Areas
Ultrashape Power® patented technology is approved by the FDA for use on abdominal circumference. This means that it is used to reduce subcutaneous belly fat, the fat between your layers of skin and abdominal muscles, which may have been resistant to diet or exercise. The procedure reduces the width of your belly, so you can see better results in your clothing sizes, from workouts and in the mirror.
Benefits of focused, pulsed ultrasound for selective fat destruction include:
- Average 1-3 inches lost in three sessions
- Instant fat cell destruction
- Results are visible in just a few weeks
- Clinically proven procedure involving non-thermal, focused ultrasound
- Patient satisfaction of 86 to 94 percent in clinical studies
- Smooth fat reduction in the treated area, without irregularities
- No pain, bruising, swelling or downtime
- Comfortable procedure convenient for “walk-in and walk-out”
- No reported side effects or adverse events among recipients
Before your treatment can begin, you will need to set up a consultation to visit with Dr. Walder or Dr. Chimento in their Miami Beach area office. During the consultation, the doctor will determine and assess if you are a good candidate. Dr. Walder & Dr. Chimento will also discuss your individual goals, explain the process and answer any questions you may have about this selective fat destruction method.
Ideal candidates for this form of body contouring are adult males with stubborn fat around their midsection. Some may be affected by genetically acquired belly fat, while others may have excess fat that diet and exercise have not reduced.
When pulsed ultrasound treatment is completed, the best results are gained and maintained when a healthy, active lifestyle is observed. Patients who seek better muscle definition in their abdominal section are able to attain more visible results from their workouts, after successful treatment.
This method of fat destruction is not intended for major weight loss but rather fat reduction and body contouring.
Unlike many other forms of fat reduction, such as liposuction, the pulsed ultrasound process is completely non-surgical and non-invasive. There are no incisions or anesthesia. Treatments are pain-free, pleasant and non-thermal, so you will not even experience extreme hot or cold. During the procedure you are able to lie back, relax and let the applicator device do the work of eliminating fat cells you have been unable to reduce on your own through diet and exercise.
When you arrive for your treatments, a specially designed belt will be wrapped around your abdomen. You will be comfortably positioned on a treatment table, where you can lie back and relax. A soothing gel will be applied to your skin where fat destruction treatment will occur. The trained technician will then deliver painless ultrasound pulses to your belly while gliding the transducer over the fat you want to eliminate.
You can expect your treatments to take less than an hour. Most patients undergo three sessions to achieve the best results. These will usually occur at the rate of one each week for three weeks. However, you will work with Dr. Walder to determine the best plan for your abdominal fat reduction.
This is a cutting edge means of fat elimination, using ultrasound energy and not requiring invasive surgery, application of extreme temperatures, or anesthesia. This means that there are no incisions, discomfort or downtime. As soon as your treatment session is completed, you are able to return to the rest of your day’s normal activities.
Some patients may experience very mild swelling in the treated area, but this is not the case for all who undergo the procedure. Any swelling which does occur will subside within a few hours.
Results are rapid. In about two weeks following the last session you will see improvement in your belly circumference. You will appear leaner with smaller measurement around your abdomen. There will be no pain, discomfort or visible signs of having been treated as part of ultrasound fat destruction.

Will I gain results from one session?
While you will see some results in just a few weeks following your first treatment, the average number of sessions for patients is three. These are spread over three weeks, one occurring each week.
Is pulsed ultrasound fat elimination safe?
This form of fat elimination is entirely non-invasive, non-surgical, pain free and does not involve use of any anesthesia. This makes this procedure very safe without side effects or downtime.
Will the fat come back?
This procedure eliminates fat cells in the subcutaneous layer between your skin and abdominal wall. This means that the fat cells are destroyed, with their remnants being eliminated by the body forever. However, you can still gain weight in remaining fat cells. To keep your improved physique, you still must maintain a healthy diet and active lifestyle.
Does pulse ultrasound fat elimination hurt?
The procedure is essentially painless. There is no incision and no anesthesia is needed. There is nothing used during the procedure which can hurt and recovery is equally painless. The only indication of your procedure having been performed may be a few hours of light swelling in the treatment area. Few people experience this and it goes away within hours.
Is this fat reduction procedure safe for everyone?
While the procedure is safe, it will not necessarily be right for everyone. A consultation with Dr. Diane Walder will determine if the treatment is right for your stubborn abdominal fat. She will also review your health and ask some questions to ensure you are a good candidate and can expect visible results.
Can I lose a lot of weight using pulsed ultrasound fat elimination?
Pulsed ultrasound fat elimination is not a means of losing a great deal of weight. It is intended to treat targeted fat on the abdomen which has remained stubborn to healthy diet and exercise, as a form of body sculpting.
