Scarless skin tightening refers to the ability to tighten the skin without the need for cutting.
High definition liposuction attempts to provide transformative body contouring improvements; superior results were not previously feasible if patients presented with skin redundancy.
Using the High Definition Liposuction (HDL) Grading Scale, patients are scored based on the degree of 1) excess fat 2) redundant skin, and 3) skin texture. High definition liposuction surgical plans attempt to transform patients to a near-perfect 9 or 10 regardless of their initial HDL scale point value! Patients with redundant skin will often require skin-tightening procedures, especially when considering VASER liposuction’s ability to comprehensively remove fat.
Skin redundancy has become a real concern for High Definition Liposuction surgeons since VASER liposuction is more aggressive in removing fat than traditional liposuction. Intuitively when you remove more fat, you will be left with more skin redundancy. This is a bigger concern in older patients desiring body contouring. After the age of 45, skin can lose elasticity (meaning its recoil potential) as levels of the recoil protein “elastin” become depleted.
Traditionally skin tightening has required surgical cutting out of redundant skin. However, the advent of Renuvion® skin tightening now allows for the elimination of minimal to moderate skin redundancy without the need for surgical incisions and potential subsequent scars. Renuvion® is able to heat up the collagen in your skin to tighten it (called subdermal coagulation), like shrink-wrap. When HD VASER liposuction is coupled with Renuvion® technology, several concern areas that were previously untreatable can now be contoured optimally. Please make a consultation with one of our High Definition Liposuction surgeons to appreciate the changes that you could expect.
