Renuvion on the lower body can reduce the appearance of cellulite and provide a lift
Women who are susceptible to having cellulite, often find the problem becomes exacerbated with weight fluctuations and age. Seeking a solution with a leg or buttock lift has traditionally required surgery with long incisions and discomfort during recovery. However, now there is a minimally invasive procedure offered by our Frisco cosmetic surgeon. Alan Greenberg MD offers Renuvion on the lower body to help raise the self-esteem of women in Frisco, Plano, Dallas and North Texas.
Reduce cellulite with Renuvion on the lower body
Those dimples, bumps and rolls on your legs and booty rarely go away with exercise and diet. This is because cellulite occurs when fat cells are pushed toward the surface by connective fibers that provide the infrastructure between muscles, fat and skin. It is more common in women because their bodies are built for childbearing, with fat accumulating in the hips, buttocks and thighs. Genetic factors, such as body type or skin structure, also influence the tendency to develop cellulite. As a result, even lean bodies can develop it.
Renuvion technology targets sagging skin
As the body ages, the skin loses some of its elasticity, so the raised and lowered areas of fat and tissue become more pronounced. When using Renuvion on the lower body, it “irons out” the dimples by pressing the skin down on pockets of fat.
Thighs. Renuvion procedures are excellent for addressing loose skin on the sides and back of the upper legs, especially when used with liposuction. When excess fat gathers around the inner and outer thighs, our Frisco cosmetic surgeon sculpts the legs with liposuction and then tightens the skin with Renuvion. Another common problem for women, even those in excellent shape, is the development of a “banana roll” on the upper posterior thighs, directly below the buttocks. Removing the fat with liposuction alone can cause the skin and the lower buttock crease to sag. Renuvion tightens that area without a more invasive procedure.
Buttocks. If the lunges and squats that build your gluteus maximus fail to tighten your tush, then it may be that the overlying skin is too loose. Renuvion at the base of the buttocks causes the skin to contract and reveals a smoother shape.
High-tech skin tightening provides a lift
Although the Renuvion technology has been around for many years, it has only recently been adapted for cosmetic applications. Formerly known as J-Plasma®, the equipment combines helium plasma with radio frequency energy to tighten sagging skin. The cool plasma technology prevents thermal damage to delicate tissue. Our Frisco cosmetic surgeon offers the FDA-approved, non-surgical treatment in the comfort of our offices.
Keep in mind that not everyone is a good candidate for Renuvion, as some patients will have too much loose skin to benefit from the procedure. For the patients who are good candidates, they will likely notice some immediate tightening, but it will take months to see the full improvement in the skin. It’s also important to note that Renuvion will only provide 50-60% of the results that an excision procedure can produce. However, many patients find that improvement is enough for them.

Why Fad Diets Won’t Fix Those Problem Areas
Every few years, there’s a new fad diet guaranteed to drop the pounds, tone the muscles or burn the fat. The cabbage soup or apple cider vinegar drinks may work initially, but the results are often short lived. The truth is that fad diets don’t work to keep weight off long-term.
The Power of Two: Liposuction with Abdominoplasty Offers Added Satisfaction
As a skilled cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Alan Greenberg combines liposuction with his tummy tucks to enhance his patient’s results. He understands the desire to look and feel as good as possible.
A recent study looked at 360 patients undergoing liposuction and/or abdominoplasty to remove abdominal fat. Of those patients, about 35 percent underwent a combination of liposuction and abdominoplasty
