Why Should You Combine Liposuction with Renuvion Skin Tightening?

It can be frustrating when small pockets of fat on specific areas of the body remain resistant to dieting and exercise. For men, the midsection is the default area for fat storage, so it’s common for guys to find it harder to maintain a slim waistline, while women tend to have more stubborn fat on the lower body areas, such as the hips and outer thighs. Regardless of where you have unwanted fat, it may not always be possible to get rid of it on your own. That’s why so many patients decide to have liposuction for body contouring from our Los Angeles-adjacent Cosmetic Surgery Institute.

Surgical fat reduction allows patients to finally get the slimmer, shapelier, and more sculpted body they’ve always wanted. This treatment provides lasting results, and one of the advantages is that it won’t leave long scars. One of the ways you can maximize the results from liposuction is by combining it with Renuvion, a radiofrequency skin-tightening technique that our doctors provide for surgical body contouring patients.

Here are some of the reasons why we recommend having this skin tightening procedure and liposuction at the same time.

Repair Sagging Skin

When we gain weight, our skin often becomes stretched out to accommodate the increase in volume. Even though liposuction is an excellent fat removal tool, there is one drawback to this treatment: It can’t tighten skin that has lost elasticity. In fact, if you already have very loose skin, liposuction could make it look droopier. This is why liposuction is best for younger patients who have good skin elasticity.

But by adding Renuvion to your procedure, we can tighten sagging skin on areas such as the lower face, abdomen, breasts, neck, back, flanks, arms, knees, and legs. This gives the patient more transformative results than either treatment would be able to on its own. Renuvion combines radiofrequency and plasma to prompt the tissues to contract while stimulating collagen production. 

Minimally Invasive 

Renuvion is ideal for those who want to tighten their skin without additional surgery. There are tiny incisions, almost no scarring, and downtime is minimal.
