About Liposuction Combined with Renuvion

Renuvion can be used to tighten sagging skin on the neck, abdomen, back, arms, or legs.

If you are struggling with reducing particular areas of fat, liposuction surgery may be an excellent solution for you. Liposuction is a popular fat removal technique that was developed in the 1960s. This method uses small incisions to access the fat deposits. A thin tube (called a cannula) topped with an aspirator (a suction device) is used to remove fat and help sculpt your body.

This technique has greatly evolved since the sixties. Today, there are many technological improvements that let liposuction reduce your fat in less time with less downtime. Liposuction is a minimally invasive procedure that allows doctors to add additional treatments too.

You can effectively and quickly improve your surgical procedure and results with Renuvion!

Renuvion is a CO2 laser skin resurfacing device that implements both radio frequency (RF) energy and plasma to produce skin tightening results that helps reduce fat further and enhance muscle definition and skin tautness. The procedure emits RF energy alongside helium to the treatment area. The procedure will keep your skin at a comfortable temperature while improving skin laxity and boosting collagen levels. Collagen is a protein found in the skin that is responsible for keeping skin firm and thick. A boost in this protein will help revitalize your skin and restore a smoother, even texture.

Renuvion can be used in combination with liposuction surgery to achieve better results than either treatment can achieve on its own.

The combination of Renuvion and liposuction achieves a superior result because it both sculpts the body and tightens skin, resulting in a better shape with improved skin texture and tightness. The use of this technology will reduce blood loss and help shorten recovery time. For truly transforming results, you can combine Renuvion with lipo or apply it to another area to create a comprehensive improvement in your appearance.

This lipo method will help minimize bruising and swelling for a quick turn-around.

SmartLipo is a laser-assisted liposuction procedure that uses laser energy to emulsify fat and restructure the skin.

A small laser fiber will be inserted into the treatment area, the doctor will use it to effectively target fat cells and emulsify them. The fat will be removed from your body and the remaining tissue will be sculpted to provide natural contours. Show off your results a few days after your treatment!


Vaser Hi-Def Lipo

Using Renuvion with these methods will reduce your recovery period and have you showing off your new curves in no time!

Vaser Hi-Def Lipo is an ultrasound assisted treatment. VASER stands for Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance. Ultrasound waves will target fat cells to delicately dislodge them from surrounding tissues. This procedure is combined with a tumescent fluid to produce an effective, quick procedure that also provides a fast recovery period.

Tumescent fluid is made of saline, epinephrine, and an antihistamine. This fluid combination helps to firm and swell the treatment area. The epinephrine will contract blood vessels, helping to reduce blood loss and bruising while the antihistamine works to locally numb the area.

When the ultrasound probe is inserted into the treatment area, the sound waves will the air bubbles present in the tumescent fluid. These bubbles will fluctuate, helping to gently dislodge fat cells. Vaser Hi-Def lipo is a minimally-invasive treatment that will quickly sculpt your body without more than a few days of downtime.


If you have been exercising but are having a hard time reducing fat along with your abdomen, thighs or flanks, you may consider looking into liposuction.

Renuvion is a nonsurgical skin tightening treatment that will enhance your results. Renuvion can improve your surgery as well as enhance your liposuction results. Renuvion can be applied to the treatment area after it has healed to help reduce more fat and improve muscle definition.

Speak with Marin County’s Body Contouring Experts

In your personal meeting with one of our highly trained doctors, you will get the opportunity to share your concerns and how you would like to improve your appearance. The doctor will listen and ask about your general health, past procedures, medications, and allergies. They will also examine the area you are concerned about, take photographs and chart measurements to create an accurate plan for the procedure. Together, you and the doctor will create a treatment plan that addresses your concerns and works to achieve your best results.

The doctor and surgical team will walk you through the steps of a liposuction and Renuvion procedure, informing you of the potential risks and expected outcome. They will also tell you how to best plan for the procedure and your recovery. This is a great time to ask lots of questions so you can gain a realistic expectation of your experience.

Some of these questions we suggest you begin with asking are:

  • How long will my procedure be?
  • How many days should I take off from work?
  • What is the length of the full recovery period?
  • Will there be much discomfort following the procedure?
  • When can I expect my final results?


  • Prior to your surgery, you will need to obtain medications and any other necessary products for your recovery.
  • You may need to arrange for a friend or family member to drop you off and pick you up from the procedure appointment.
  • On the morning of your appointment, dress comfortably and arrive a few minutes early to ensure you have a peaceful morning.

For your best results, follow your doctor’s instructions leading up to the surgery date.


When you arrive at your procedure, the surgical team will greet you and prepare your treatment area for surgery. They will clean the predetermined area and mark where the incision will be applied. These marks will help guide your doctor through the surgery. Once completed, your predetermined anesthesia will be applied.

Once you are comfortable, your doctor will gently apply incisions with the Renuvion device, through which your preferred choice of liposuction will be implemented to reduce the stubborn fat.

The overall procedure may vary from two to five hours depending on the area(s) treated.

Recovery & Results

Following the procedure, your treatment area will be swollen and bandaged. A compression garment will help set your new contours. The swelling will decrease in the following days and medication will help control any discomfort.

A follow-up appointment will help your doctor monitor your results and make sure you are recovering well.

Your results will take a few months to set in and will provide transformational improvements. Once the area is completed, Renuvion can be applied to help restructure the subdermal layers of your skin, reducing more fat and toning your skin. The results achieved with liposuction and Renuvion will be long-lasting and, with a healthy lifestyle, will remain consistent for years!
