Many patients have stubborn fat in pockets around their body that they cannot reduce with diet and exercise, but they aren’t ready for surgical liposuction. Non-surgical liposuction uses a variety of techniques and equipment to reduce or eliminate fat cells throughout the body. Las Vegas plastic surgeon, Dr. Marvin Spann, uses the advanced technology of UltraShape and vShape for non-surgical body shaping in Couture Medical Center’s premier Aesthetics Suite.

UltraShape is a non-surgical liposuction procedure that is approved by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) to reduce fat cells. UltraShape uses pulses of ultrasound energy waves to disrupt the fat cell walls, which releases the fat to be naturally processed by the body. UltraShape is a safe, effective body shaping treatment that provides visible results without pain or recovery time. UltraShape treats the subcutaneous fat in the body that is not affected by diet and exercise.
vShape by Alma Lasers uses a combination of cold ultrasound energy waves and Unipolar radio frequency waves to contour the body and tighten the skin without surgery. vShape is FDA-approved, effective, and a pain-free treatment that requires no downtime after the procedure. vShape uses acoustic shear waves to break down the fat cells, and then radio frequency waves to stimulate the metabolism and improve the tone and texture of the skin. vShape provides long-term results on all skin tones and types.
During/After the Procedure@headingTag>
Each non-surgical liposuction procedure will vary based on the equipment used, but it will be performed in Dr. Spann’s office without anesthesia. Patients may feel pressure or heat on the treated area, but most patients have little to no discomfort during the procedure. The treatment may last from 30 minutes – 3 hours depending on the equipment being used and the size of the area being treated. Patients are able to leave immediately after the procedure and resume their normal activities. Immediately after the procedure, patients will have temporary swelling and redness for the first 1 – 2 days, but this will diminish quickly. Most patients will have a visible reduction in fat within 1 – 2 months after their procedure.
Non-surgical liposuction can cost between $1,000 and $3,000 depending on the technology being used and the size of the area being treated. Dr. Spann will be able to discuss cost estimates and financing during each patient’s initial consultation.

How Many Treatments?@headingTag>
While most patients will need multiple sessions to get their best results, the amount of treatments needed varies greatly among patients. Larger areas and areas with a higher volume of fat will require more treatments. Dr. Spann will discuss the recommended amount of sessions that may be needed and whether surgical liposuction is a better alternative.
Are the Results Permanent?@headingTag>
Once the fat cells in the body are eliminated, they will not return. However, the remaining fat cells will expand if weight is gained after the procedure. It is best to be at a stable, healthy weight before and after the procedure.
Dr. Spann will go over pre-procedure instructions with each patient during the initial consultation, but some of the guidelines are:
- Avoid anti-inflammatory drugs, like aspirin, and herbal medications
- Eliminate or reduce smoking for better results and healing
- If possible, arrange to be driven home after the procedure and have someone spend the first night after the treatment.
