HD Lipo Podcast #2: How VASER lipo With J-Plasma Tightens Your Skin Without Cutting or Scarring with Dr. Arian Mowlavi
What is Scarless Skin Tightening?
FF: On this episode of the HD Lipo podcast we’re going to be talking about scarless skin tightening. What do you mean when we’re talking about scarless skin tightening?
Dr. M: What we’re talking about is the concept of being able to tighten up the skin without having to cut it out. You know as a plastic surgeon, we’re always weighing the scale between skin redundancy and excess fat. If you have a lot of extra fat and your skin is tight then you are a great candidate for liposuction. In contrast, if you have a lot of skin looseness and even moderate amount of fat or very little fat, liposuction isn’t going to help you and you’re going to have to cut out that skin and sew up the skin matter. So we’re always weighing these two to determine what the best procedure is for a patient regardless of the area.
What is the Difference Between HD Lipo and Traditional Lipo?
FF: This sounds like a perfect case study to highlight the difference between traditional liposuction techniques and HD Lipo. Clearly you were not able to do anything with liposuction if there wasn’t excess fat present and only excess skin. But if it were a case where there was both that fat that needed to be removed and skin that needed to be taken, what would you have done in a more traditional approach in the past before the HD Lipo techniques and equipment came available?
Dr. M: What we’re talking about is in the scenario where you had medium to no amount of fat what you would have to do with the traditional liposuction technique is for no fat you would just cut it out. You would do a tucking procedure again that’s a taking. For example a tummy tuck or a arm tuck or a medial thigh tuck. And that’s what she had to do. Now with the new tools that we have in High-Definition Liposuction it has allowed us to try to avoid cuts. There’s no incision lines or scenes anymore. And so let’s talk about this because this is probably one of the most exciting areas in high definition liposuction. Traditional liposuction can only take deep fat and not all the fat whereas VASER Lipo can take the superficial and deep fat. It is more comprehensive. Either one of these technologies would require you to cut the extra skin out. In the arm or medial thighs where the skin is really loose and redundant. There’s a protein in that skin called elastin and that’s what makes the skin kind of recoil and be tight. Well there’s certain areas where the elastin is gone early in life. Those include the upper aspect of the thigh, the inner thigh, and the arms and it just looks loose and it does lose it’s lost its elasticity. And then sometimes it’s the love handles or those flank areas and those are the areas we’re talking about whereas before you would have to have that area tucked or cut. Now with the advent of cool helium plasma skin tightening to supplementing the veins or technology and they got to be done together and we can talk about that. We are now able to tighten the skin in the upper arm, legs, and flanks without large cutting. Now in addition to being less invasive, there’s no cutting and no scarring.
Results with High Def Lipo
FF: Are you able to achieve more dramatically beneficial effects as well with HD.
Dr. M: Absolutely. Not only are we able to remove the fat comprehensively. Before we can only do a little bit of fat removal with the traditional liposuction but now given the cool helium plasma skin tightening we don’t have to worry about leaving too much skin behind and worrying about it looking loose. The modalities together have really just pushed us to another level of contouring.
FF: Can you give me an example of a patient you’ve worked with who’s achieved some dramatic results?
Dr. M: This week I did a absolutely stunning tummy tuck and a breast lift with implants. I thought she was going to look so amazing and she didn’t have the funds to pay for the medial thigh tuck. She’s going to be gorgeous and she was going to have one flaw which was her medial thighs. So she’s going to have a beautiful waistline beautiful tummy beautiful breasts. Everything was going to be ready to be put into a two piece bikini but her thighs were just loose and they just weren’t perfection. She was against having a cut down there. She definitely didn’t want to be tucked in. And I just said you know what I’m going to do this for you because I want you to see what I can achieve for you. And this is on me. And so I did a Hi-Def liposuction of her medial thighs and I tightened her skin using the cool helium plasma skin tightening tool. She came to me at one week and I unveiled everything and you know with a tummy tuck and breast look there’s a lot of other issues and concerns and there’s drains. She looks beautiful everything is gorgeous and the most dramatic improvement was in her tummy, but she told me that she has gotten more compliments from her thighs. She was saying how her thighs are so tight and she doesn’t have a scar on it.
FF: I’m sure she is just as pleased as she could be with those results.
Dr. M: She really was and you know it was shocking to me that she kept talking about her thighs. I’m like, “I just did her tummy and your breast. They look amazing. You know.” And she kept going back to the fact that all her friends were commenting on her thighs.
What is Cool Helium Plasma Skin Tightening?
Dr.M: There’s a cool helium plasma tool that literally heats up a collagen in your skin and it tightens it. It actually cooks a type like almost like shrinkwrapped that’s heated. Right. OK. And so you you see this happening before your eyes. I’ll do one thigh and then I’ll go grab the skin and try to pull it up. And it snaps back like like a rubber band.
Where Can I Learn More?
FF: Clearly it’s too much to expect that this recent patient of yours will be able to see pictures of right away. But what about other patients either of your own or other surgeons who have used this cool laser technique along with the laser liposuction to achieve these effects where can we find some before and after photos.
Dr.M: Now this is an newer area of the high definition liposuction world, so patients may have a harder time finding resources online. I can tell you that on highdefinitionliposuction.com they will be able to find practitioners or providers who have that modality which they utilize so they’ll be able to see the results. Again this is a newer aspect of the High-Definition liposuction realm and so before and afters may be harder to find online.
Side Effects of High Def Lipo
FF: Are there any specific side effects or recovery time issues related to this type of scarless skin tightening that prospective patients should be aware of going in?
Dr. M: I haven’t seen any complications or issues regarding cool helium plasma skin tightening. But I have not had any issues with wounds, burns, or anything and no extra swelling, bruising, premeditation issues. So far it’s been doing very well.
Cost of High Def Lipo
FF: How much does a procedure like this cost?
Dr. M: So again the cool helium plasma is the third kind of tool of the High-Definition Liposuction program and so it’s bundled into the procedure. Regardless, if I’m going to treat your thighs, I’m going to make sure that all the fat is gone and that the skin is tight whether or not I have to use the cool helium plasma tightening and depending on your skin tone. So it’s bundled together. When I’m treating an area, I have to make sure that it’s contoured appropriately and that the skin is tight and everything looks perfect. Whether or not you need the tightening is dependent on the patient.
FF: So this is like an extra added feature to another procedure that you would have done in a given area of the body.
Dr. M: Absolutely. And there’s two things that I wanted to talk about one more time so the listeners really appreciate why the cool helium plasma skin tightening is part of the High-Definition liposuction realm. you see in order for this to work it literally probes the skin. And what I’m talking about is the dermis: the underside of the skin. When we use the traditional liposuction tools we’re only able to remove the deep fat. We can’t get to the dermis of the skin. So the way that you can use cool helium plasma skin tightening to your advantage is when you can remove both the deep and the superficial layer so that your probe can get to the under surface of that skin. That’s the first thing I wanted to share with the listeners. And then the second thing I wanted to talk about is High-Definition liposuction may be a misnomer because it’s not about just the fat anymore. It’s not about the liposuction per se it’s about the overall contour.We have new patients available to us now: the older patients like the grandmas that have a little bit of fat but they’re not chubby. As we get older it seems like a lot of us start losing the fat where we’re under nourished. And so their main concern isn’t the fat. This new set of patients are coming in because they want to have tightening of their skin. It’s lost its elasticity it’s just hanging so high definition liposuction now is allowing me to use VASER in combination with my cool helium plasma skin tightening tool to literally tighten their bodies up for them without being cut.
FF: What a blessing and what a wonderful benefit for those grandmas.
Dr. M: It really is. I would never consider cutting on her because that was too intrusive for her but if I can use little poke holes and touch her up she’s all for it well. I want the listeners to appreciate that it is this is the newer aspect of High-Definition liposuction. So patients need to do their homework and make sure that their provider not only has the VASER machine but that they in fact have the cool plasma machine as well because in a scenario when we’re removing all the fat comprehensively there is more opportunity to have extra skin. For optimum results they should really get the comprehensive care that I term under the high definition liposuction umbrella.
