When it comes to overcoming weight problems, psychotherapies can help. It can increase one’s body-image, as well as improving motivation and confidence in being successful to achieve weight loss goals. Treatment can also help individuals find more effective coping strategies rather than binge-eating and provide the individual with a stress management kit.
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.
How much weight will I lose? : it really does depend on how much weight you have to lose in the first place and how well you stick with the programme.  I have seen 3-4 kg lost in the first two phases (2 weeks and 2 days) through to a staggering 10kg.  For most people the first two phases sees the most dramatic loss in weight after which point is does slow down a bit.  One lady on the plan at the moment has lost 7kg and she is a couple of weeks into phase 3 (more relaxed phase where one weekly treat meal is allowed) and is half way to her total weight loss goal.
A: Clinical results show that in three treatments, patients see an average of 4 cm reduction in circumference. Clinical trials have shown an average of 2 cm reduction in circumference even after a single treatment. As with any non-invasive procedure the results you see may differ from the clinical trial results. The Doctor will be happy to discuss this in detail with you during a consultation.

Traditional methods of weight loss can often be tiresome and, frankly, dull. But it doesn't have to be this way. There are several ways to get fit that eschew the gym and the jogging pants. Dance has seen a resurgence in recent years and is also an excellent form of exercise. Many gyms offer classes you can attend for a fee. But if you're especially keen on learning a skill, Pineapple Dance Studios offers classes for beginners. There are no joining fees and you simply pay a reasonable fee upon entry. For those into Salsa, check out Caramelo Latin Dance School, where both regular courses or one-day intensive session are available. For those looking for an intense detox and weight loss package, then Barry's Bootcamp may be suitable. They boast impressive results, but be prepared to work!
The free information sessions throughout the year offer education about obesity and its related health risks, detailed information about weight loss surgery options, an opportunity to meet our surgeons and members of the bariatric team and talk with an insurance specialist. Former patients are often on hand to describe their experiences. These sessions are mandatory for anyone considering weight loss surgery. Family members and friends are welcome to attend.
Rigorously structured: you will be given super clear guidelines on what you can and cannot eat.  Rules to stick to (3 meals no snacking, 5 hour gap between meals, no oil / fat for the first two weeks, etc etc).  A detailed meal structure that will show exactly how many grams of food you should eat at each meal (yes that means using a scale to weigh your food).

I first came to Ageless Medical Weight at the end of April. At first I was skeptical about the dramatic results I had seen on TV. I had tried everything and did not know if the program would work for me. I had constantly struggled to keep my weight off after doing those fad diets. It was always a short term goal to a look time problem. Nothing worked until I came to Ageless Medical Weight Loss and MedSpa. They did not quick fix the weight issue they fixed they weight issue. And it was easy. Ageless reprogrammed my body and my mind. This program gave me a whole new approach to life. A healthy life!

You will not necessarily burn more fat using a ‘fat burn’ program on the treadmill which keeps you in an intensity of 50 – 60% of your max heart rate. There is evidence to show that exercising at a light to moderate range burns more fat than strenuous exercise as the body has greater access to use fat as a fuel during these lower intensities. As you can see in the table below, a percentage of fat is used during all intensities of exercise, but at different rates. Because the rate of fat use is slow during light to moderate exercise, it is important to increase the duration of your exercise session – minimum of 30 minutes progressing to 60 minutes.


Anybody can drop weight dramatically but to actually lose fat without damage to your metabolism requires an approach that is unique in this industry. There have always been rumours of ‘photoshopping’ before and after pictures but the industry’s real ‘dirty secret’ is that many of the photos you see are of people who’ve been starved and dehydrated for a 10 day period before their photoshoot. As soon as they eat a ‘normal’ diet, these people gain huge amounts of fat and can damage their metabolisms to the extent that it’s tough to lose fat in future.
