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.

"Dr. Grace Kim has been a family friend for years but that doesn't mean I'm biased! I got my Kybella treatment done by her and a custom acne care consultation. I couldn't have asked for a better doctor to do the Kybella. She did the treatment with precision and was super caring to my needs. The treatment worked wonders! I also had less acne problems with her recommended products and regimen. The Kybella does hurt and the swelling does last about 3 days but I would say it's worth it. 2 vials cost around 2k. My mother did get the laser fat treatment but didn't see much results but I would say all in all Couture medical's procedures most of the time work. And I would highly recommend Dr. Grace Kim as a preferred dermatologist."- N.N. / Yelp / Dec 30, 2019

UltraShape Power is a non-surgical Liposuction procedure that is approved by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) to reduce fat cells. UltraShape Power uses pulses of ultrasound energy waves to disrupt the fat cell walls, which releases the fat to be naturally processed by the body. UltraShape Power is a safe, effective body shaping treatment that provides visible results without pain or recovery time. UltraShape Power 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
Each non-surgical Liposuction procedure will vary based on the equipment used, but it will be performed in Dr. Marvin 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. Marvin Spann will be able to discuss cost estimates and financing during each patient’s initial consultation.

Non-Surgical Liposuction FAQs
How Many Treatments?
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. Marvin Spann will discuss the recommended amount of sessions that may be needed and whether surgical Liposuction is a better alternative.
Are the Results Permanent?
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. Marvin 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
- Arrange to be driven home after the procedure and, if possible, have someone spend the first night after the treatment.
