AbstractOBJECTIVE: High-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) is a non-invasive technology for body contouring. HIFU is focused within the subcutaneous adipose tissue, causing coagulative necrosis and cell death. The objective of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of a HIFU device for sculpting of the abdomen. METHODS: The system has a set focal depth of 1.3 cm. Twelve subjects with adipose thickness of no less than 2.5 cm who met the screening criteria were recruited. Each subject received one treatment to the abdomen. The total fluence used per site was 150-165 J/cm2 with a mean of 161 J/cm2. The waist circumference at iliac crest and the point of maximum circumference were recorded at baseline …
