Plasma Liposuction in NYC
new York Plasma Liposuction Skin Tightening
J-Plasma is a minimally invasive procedure for skin tightening. Liposuction specialists use the technology to apply cold plasma energy under the skin which causes an instant skin contraction that results in improved laxity, tightening and shrinkage.
Plasma is especially innovative because skin tightening has long been considered the missing component of liposuction procedures. In the past, many patients avoided liposuction because they feared loose skin. Conversely, patients with existing loose skin in areas such as the arms, inner thighs, and lower abdomen, but with very little extra fat were in the past told they needed a large cutting operation (which is not ideal for everyone’s lifestyle). Renuvion’s skin tightening technology addresses both of these issues.
Dr. Neinstein of Neinstein Plastic Surgery is the only physician in Manhattan, New York to implement Renuvion’s revolutionary skin tightening plasma liposuction technology into his body contouring practice.
More About Plasma Liposuction
Plasma Energy involves excited states of helium ions existing between a liquid and gas phase.
Renuvion is an advanced energy device combining the unique properties of cold helium plasma with Radio Frequency energy. This revolutionary technology in skin tightening and body contouring allows for an even broader platform of energy devices to be used to achieve unparalleled results.
At Neinstein Plastic Surgery we use Renuvion. Renuvion’s technology applies a gentle RF waveform to convert an inert gas into a cold plasma. Helium is used because it can be converted to a plasma with very little energy. The result is an energy that is unique in its ability to provide tissue heating and cooling almost simultaneously.
Plasma Liposuction Procedures
- Awake Liposuction Plasma: Gentle fat removal and skin tightening. This is a 60 minute out patient procedure with minimal downtime
- Most commonly in the abdomen but other target areas include loose neck skin, loose arm skin, loose knee skin, loose back skin, and loose inner thigh skin.
- Mini Tummy Tuck: This is performed instead of a full tummy tuck involving the muscles and moving the belly button. In this procedure we can tighten the skin and simply remove some extra skin in the bikini line.
- Mini Arm Lift & Thigh Lift: Instead of full arm and thigh lifts we can now do mini lifts with hidden incisions and use plasma to tighten the remaining skin.
In addition to traditional Plasma Liposuction, Dr. Neinstein is the only plastic surgeon in NYC offering Pure Plasma tightening and sculpting. This procedure addresses loose skin or loose skin with just a little bit of extra fat alone.
Pure plasma is typically performed under local anesthetic with minimal to no downtime. In the procedure, the patient is given some medication by mouth to take the edge off and brought to the operating room where numbing fluid is gently placed in the treated areas. The plasma wand is used safely under the skin to tighten and sculpt the area. The patient leaves the office wearing a garment for about a week. Many patients return to work and social events with 48 hours. Patients look and feel tighter within a week and get the maximum effect of the plasma tightening on the underside of their skin within 3 months
Pure Plasma was invented for woman and men who are close to their ideal body weight but do to genetics, pregnancy, and maturity have some loose skin.
Common Treated Areas include:
- Abdominal skin
- Arm skin
- Back skin
- Neck skin
- Inner thigh skin
