We go beyond the scales

Personalisation of your weight loss journey starts with your own unique biological data. Using the best available technology to map your body composition, the LifeShape Clinic team can customise your weight loss strategy and goals to your individual make up.

This is why DEXA Scans are included as part of all of our programs.

Your body, inside & out

We aim to show our clients the tangible effect weight loss has on their bodies.


DEXA is the gold standard in testing body composition, it's the most accurate body composition measurement system publicly available.


The results are available immediately after every scan and will be explained by an expert allied health professional.


By undertaking DEXA scans, we can accurately map clients targeted body composition changes, as well as to identify where internal body fat is contributing to increased health risks.


We have an unshakeable belief in clinical quality and conducting DEXA scans forms just part of our commitment to conducting a world-class weight loss clinic.

Measure Your Progress

Each person has a unique body composition and personal history. With precise data on how much fat tissue there is and where it is distributed, your weight loss strategy can be customised and continually fine-tuned.

What is a DEXA Scan?

DEXA stands for Duel Energy X-Ray Absorptiometry and is the most accurate body composition measurement system publicly available. DEXA is the gold standard for body composition testing and the clinic uses it to accurately map clients’ body composition changes, as well as to identify where internal body fat is contributing to increased health risks.

Why should I have a DEXA as part of my program?

LifeShape Clinic pioneered the use of DEXA scans in the weight loss industry. The devices are currently widely used for bone density scanning and by elite athletes to map lean muscle mass. However, the clinic are the first to utilise this technology to track the positive outcomes of healthy lifestyle changes of diet and exercise on the body. Losing weight isn’t just about the numbers. We use DEXA to show our clients the tangible effect weight loss has on their bodies, particularly in the reduction of internal or visceral fat which is a leading indicator for vascular metabolic disease risk

What do the results of a DEXA show me?

The results are conveniently available immediately after every scan, which will be explained by an expert allied health professional at the consultation. From every total body DEXA scan you receive an individual scan report with the following information:
• Muscle mass in each region of your body (kg)
• Fat mass in each region of your body (kg)
• Body fat percentage in each region of your body (%)
• Estimation of Visceral Adipose (fat) tissue (sq cm2)
• Bone mineral density measurement (gm/cm2)
• Your body composition data compared to evidence based reference norms
• Printed and emailed PDF of your report to keep

Are DEXA Scans safe?

The technology is very safe. The scan takes about 6 minutes to complete. It’s one of the lowest radiation dose tests available, equivalent to being outdoors for half a day or less than the natural radiation exposure from an airline flight from Sydney to Brisbane. The Discovery DEXA System was installed by Hologic who are widely regarded as the leader in DEXA technology across the globe. Please note pregnant women will not be scanned.

Do I have to be a client to have a DEXA Scan?

No, you don't need to be a client to have a DEXA Scan with LifeShape Clinic. Please contact us to discuss our single use DEXA Scans and consultations.
