How Does Liposuction Work?
During a liposuction procedure, Dr. Lawton inserts a cannula under the skin through a small incision. This suctions out fat from deep layers under the skin and removes it from the body. You may have local or general anesthesia, depending on how much fat the surgeon will remove. Either way, you will not feel any discomfort.
Liposuction removes fat, and with fat removed, skin in the treated area may tighten somewhat over time. Your skin may not become as tight as you want. However, you can tighten and firm your skin during your liposuction procedure with Renuvion®.
What is Renuvion®?
Whether by itself or in combination with another procedure, Renuvion® tightens the skin using a combination of radiofrequency and plasma energy. This energy comes from a thin wand inserted through a cannula under the skin. The helium plasma helps to cool the process to a more comfortable temperature.
Renuvion® sends pulses into the skin, causing immediate contraction of the skin from underneath. This causes the skin on the surface to visibly tighten. This energy also triggers the skin cells to produce collagen, building the network of dermal fibers that give skin strength and firmness.
