Bariatric weight loss surgeries, such as gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy or laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (LAGB), force patients to drastically reduce the amount of food they consume by surgically creating a small stomach pouch. Most gastric procedures reduce the stomach's holding capacity from about two quarts to two ounces. When eating, this pouch fills quickly. Because patients feel satisfied and full sooner, they eat less.
A: After the UltraShape procedure, released contents of the broken-down fat cells are naturally cleared by the body over a 2-4 week period. Circumference and fat thickness reduction is usually seen within the first 14 – 28 days post treatment. Maximum results are seen about 28 days post the final treatment. Monitoring of your results will be performed using the InBody Analyzer and serial measurements.
Fat cells are dispersed unevenly throughout the body, and their distribution differs from person to person. Some people have a greater number of fat cells around the waist and hips, while others have more around their thighs. This is why body shapes vary so much and why so many of us are likely to gain weight in “all the wrong places”. UltraShape™ can change our contours by reducing the number of fat cells in a problem area.

(Please note: Both the Fat Burn and the Cardio Program on the treadmill use an age related calculation to determine your training heart rate intensity. We do not recommend you to use these programs. This range is generally not an appropriate range for cardiac patients as most are on a beta-blocker which lowers heart rate. Please follow your heart rate guidelines (Training Heart Rate) prescribed for you by your kinesiologists as this is a more accurate range for you.)
The most important factors for change in reducing and ultimately managing your obesity are your diet, exercise and permanent behaviour modification.

Prescription medication provided by a dedicated weight loss doctor is a widely used treatment for obesity reduction and management.
