Contour Plus May Be New Alternative to Liposuction

Posted by Cosmetic Surgery Review on October 31, 2008

While liposuction continues to be one of the most popular fat removal and fat reduction methods for millions of men and women that want to get rid of stubborn body fat, many turn to non-surgical treatments such as VelaSmooth and mesotherapy to achieve their ideal figure.  The makers of UltraShape, an increasingly popular ultrasound device available in Europe and Canada that helps dissolve body fat, have recently launched a study using Contour Plus, a body contouring system designed to sculpt and tone the skin while tightening up the skin tissues.

The Contour Plus device is designed specifically for patients who have localized areas of fat that cannot be treated with liposuction alone; it works using ultrasound waves that penetrate deep into the skin and help break down fatty tissues immediately.

Millions of men and women pursue fat removal procedures such as SmartLipo and tumescent liposuction to get rid of love handles, streamline their silhouettes and create a more contoured appearance.  However, liposuction often results in a ‘bumpy’ appearance or leaves behind loose skin that must be managed with skin tightening treatments that sculpt and tone up the skin tissues after the procedure.

The Contour Plus treatment presents a less-invasive option for smoothing out the skin and creating a truly sculpted, natural-looking silhouette.

According to Dr. Sue Ellen Cox, Medical Director at Aesthetic Solutions in North Carolina, Other body contouring devices are notorious for over-promising and under-performing such as the VelaSmooth which is used more for temporary cellulite reduction. This is the first real non-invasive device that can achieve a reduction of fat. The Contour Plus can actually be shown to disrupt the fat cells, so there is actually an objective change going on and not only a subjective change.”
