Mark Jewell, M.D. presents body contouring research study at the 50th Annual Meeting of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery in San Diego, California.Updated May 1, 2017
Dr. Jewell presented the outcomes from a clinical study that involved ten patients undergoing abdominal fat layer reduction treatments that used the Syneron-Candela UltraShape Power device. This was a scientific study that measured both the reduction in fat layer thickness of the abdomen and reduction in waistline circumference following three treatments performed two weeks apart with the device.
The data from the study showed that there was a statistically-significant average 31.4% reduction in the thickness of the abdominal fat layer and an average waist circumference reduction of 2.48cm (almost an inch). Dr. Jewell noted in the presentation that this data demonstrates that fat reduction with the UltraShape Power device was equal to reported outcome data for the Zeltiq Cool Sculpting device and the Solta Liposonix device.
According to Dr. Jewell, patients were very satisfied with their outcomes and that the treatment was virtually free of discomfort. The other important consideration with the UltraShape Power device is that treatment can be customized for each patient, based on fat location.
