Fat removal procedures like liposuction can be very effective, but residual fat may not be your only cosmetic concern. When fat is removed, your skin may not be able to conform to your new silhouette due to poor elasticity. In these cases, Dr. Hotchandani can perform his trademarked ReNUplasty® procedure, which combines fat removal with skin tightening to give you the slim, firm shape you desire.
What is VASERlipo®?
VASERlipo® is similar to traditional liposuction in that it removes fat from the body through a cannula (hollow tube) using suction. However, it uses ultrasound to break up the fat before removal. The ultrasound helps reduce the trauma to the surrounding tissues. If you are considering a fat transfer procedure, VASERlipo® can also better preserve the fat cells for a more successful transfer.
What is Renuvion™?
Renuvion™ is a treatment that combines cold helium plasma and radiofrequency energy to heat the connective tissues underneath the skin. The controlled heating safely tightens skin without causing damage to the upper layers.
Both Renuvion™ and VASERlipo® are performed using minuscule incisions, so any scarring that occurs will be minimal and easily hidden.
What Makes ReNUplasty® Special?
ReNUplasty® is an ideal treatment for patients who not only have excess fat but who also have poor skin elasticity. Loose skin after a fat removal procedure can obscure your new shape and even cause chafing and irritation in certain cases. ReNUplasty® can help remedy this by accomplishing the removal of fat and skin tightening in one appointment.
ReNUplasty® can be performed in many areas of the body, including the following:
- Bra roll
- Male chest
- Chin and neck
How Soon Will I See My Results?
Because the VASERlipo® portion of the procedure removes fat, you will see your initial results immediately. However, it can take several weeks to see your final results, as you will need to wait for any residual swelling to subside.
Is ReNUplasty® Right for Me?
ReNUplasty® is not designed for weight loss. You should be at or close to your ideal weight before undergoing the procedure. If you have a large amount of excess skin, another technique, such as a tummy tuck, may be a better option. Dr. Hotchandani will help determine the best treatment for you during your consultation. At Hotchandani Laser, Vein, and Cosmetic Surgery, we offer several other body contouring treatments to provide you with the aesthetic results you desire.
