Dr. Paul Glat Reports On A New Body Contouring & Fat Reduction Treatment.

Philadelphia, PA - Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Paul Glat is the first physician in the Philadelphia area to provide Exilis non-surgical body contouring. “The treatments use a combination of ultrasound & radio waves which can take inches off your waist, abdomen, thighs and other problem areas,” says Dr. Glat, whose office is located in Bala Cynwyd.

Recent statistics compiled by The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery show the two most in-demand cosmetic procedures are the tightening of skin laxity and body shaping.

Fat cells are stored in the body in “lobules”, or clusters similar to a bunch of grapes.  These fat cell lobules are wrapped in a fibrous tissue that holds them together. Until now, this tissue has made it virtually impossible to affect the fat clusters without performing liposuction.

As part of the process, mechanical waves help to separate the fat cell clusters into individual units. The exposed cells are then more accessible and responsive to treatment. High frequency energy causes targeted deep thermal heating, the fat cells shrink and the fat volume is reduced.

The “Exilis” is an FDA approved device that uses radio frequency and ultrasonic energy. Treatments reduce areas of fat in the waist, abdomen thighs, back and other body areas and can reach the deeper fat layers which until now have been difficult to treat non-surgically. Patients with small areas of excess fat or cellulite can see noticeable improvement with a series of Exilis treatments. Since there is no surgery involved, no recovery time is required.

Most people will require about 4 treatment sessions to reach their goals, says Dr. Glat.

Each treatment session takes 30 to 45 minutes or less and the best results are seen with a series of  four to five treatments, spaced over a period of about six weeks. Results can often be seen after the first treatment and continue to improve with each additional treatment.
