Q&A: Can Ultherapy Cause Natural Face Volume Loss?

“Can Ultherapy cause natural face volume loss (not from fat graft or fillers, but natural fat)?”, asks a RealSelf user. “I’m considering Ulthera for lifting my jowl areas, upper & lower cheeks. I have good volume, but some sagging. I don’t want to lose my natural cheek volume, is this a danger? Also, can it be used above the upper lip for some lip lifting? Thanks.””Excellent question.”, answers Aristocrat’s certified surgeon Dr. Kevin Tehrani, M.D., F.A.C.S. “Ultherapy’s focused ultrasound technology delivers micro thermal burns in the treated areas. Depending on the depth of treatment that may be fat. Ultimately the design of the treatment and delivery of the same is such to minimize fat reduction and tighten the SMAS to provide a lift. At times, I have used Ultherapy to intentionally decrease fat for example, under the neck. Best of luck.”If you have more question, or you would like to schedule a consultation with Dr. Tehrani, please call us!
