Liposuction can tighten skin and give areas such as the stomach, thighs, buttocks and neck a smooth and toned appearance. Noninvasive body contouring procedures like radiofrequency liposuction have become increasingly popular for patients who do not want invasive surgery – one such method uses a cannula equipped with radiofrequency energy system which liquefies fat cells before being suctioned out from under the patient’s skin.
Results of this treatment can usually be seen immediately, though their full impact may take up to six months to become evident. Furthermore, this method is less invasive than traditional approaches to fat removal such as lasers or devices – this means less bruising, swelling and recovery time after the session has concluded.
Liposuction is a minimally invasive procedure, using small incisions under local anesthesia, designed to remove stubborn fat deposits that have proven resistant to diet and exercise. Liposuction can be used to contour stomach and abdominal areas, sculpt buttocks for feminine curves enhancement, reduce excess leg fat deposits, define neck lines, jawlines and provide authentic torso aesthetics for transgender women and men.
RFAL therapy begins by inserting a special cannula through similar incisions as would be made during conventional liposuction, then being propelled forward by radiofrequency energy to liquefy fat cells and loosen them, making suction easier for surgeons to perform. Furthermore, its heat stimulates collagen production to tighten skin more effectively afterward and provide a more toned look after procedure.
Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery – Global Open recently reported on research which demonstrated how adding radiofrequency technology to liposuction increased skin contraction significantly. Researchers utilized Renuvion, an RFAL-based system which incorporates helium plasma for increased energy output, which significantly reduced posttreatment skin laxity while simultaneously improving results overall.
