Brief Summary:
Prospective, two-arm, randomized study of the effectiveness of the BTL-9000 HFT in achieving 3 cm or greater average waist circumferential reduction in HFT group of subjects relative to the base line and 1 cm or greater reduction relative to the average waist circumferential reduction of the Placebo group.

Circumferential Reduction Waist Circumferential Reduction Device: BTL-9000 HFT Device: sham BTL-9000 HFT Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
Prospective, randomized, blinded, two-arms study of waist circumferential reduction following 5 once-a-week treatments. One arm is the HFT group of 64 subjects who are treated with the BTL-9000 HFT and the other arm is the Placebo group of 38 subjects treated with the sham device. The objective of the study is to demonstrate the effectiveness of the BTL-9000 HFT treatment in achieving average post-treatment waist circumference reduction of 3 cm or greater across the waistline relative to the baseline assessment and of 1 cm or greater than the average waist circumferential reduction of the Placebo group.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Waist Circumference Reduction [ Time Frame: 1 month follow up after 5 once-a-week treatments ]
    The subjects in the HFT group whose average post-treatment waist circumference shows reduction of 3 cm or greater across the waistline relative to the base line assessment and their mean waist circumferential reduction is 1 cm or greater than the average circumferential reduction of Placebo group are considered to meet the study primary outcome success criteria.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Adverse Events [ Time Frame: 1 month follow up ]
    Absence of adverse events (AE) associated with the treatment procedure. Safety evaluations of skin reaction in the treatment area would be conducted at every treatment and follow up visits
