Ulthera should tighten but not reduce the fat in your face

Ulthera is a tightening device, not a fat wasting device.  Correction of excess fat injections can be a difficult problem.  You will need to be seen in consultation for an examination of the facial contour to be done prior to offering any opinion concerning your care.

Ulthera is a tightening device that will lift tissue around the browns, cheeks, lower face and neck. It will provide a tighteness but will not reduce volume.  I suggest that we analyze the overall shape of your face, feel free to contact my office to schedule a phone or in-person consultation.
