Whether it is due to bad genes or perhaps pregnancy, some of us have bulges in places they don't belong and no matter how hard we diet or exercise, they just will not go away. For those stubborn fat deposits, re-nu is proud to offer liposuction to help you sculpt your body into one that more closely resembles the one you envisioned yourself having. Liposuction is a minimally invasive procedure which allows the surgeon to remove unwanted fatty deposits through very tiny (3-4mm) incisions with a cannula. The procedure is done in the office and under local anesthesia thereby minimizing the risks and costs to the patient. Recovery time is rapid, usually only one or two days (maybe a little longer for larger volumes or more areas of fat removed). Patients are required to wear a compression garment for at least one month following the procedure. Complete healing may take a few months when the final results are appreciated.
While fatty deposits in some areas may not be desirable, it may be in other areas. For those interested in enhancing other parts of their bodies that were not naturally endowed, the professionals at re-nu are happy to lend their artistic eye in performing autologous fat transfer for augmentation. Benefits of using your own fat over synthetic implants include no chance of foreign body rejection or leaking of potentially dangerous substances such as silicone and no interference with normal body function such as breast feeding or loss of skin sensation. Fat can also be used to replace loss of facial volume due to normal aging, significant weight loss or long-term illness (see section on Stem Cell Face Lift).
Re-nu also offers laser assisted liposuction for those who need fine tuning or want a little skin tightening as well. This procedure is particularly suitable for slimming and rejuvenation the jaw and chin/neck area.
For those seeking a completely non-invasive alternative to liposuction, re-nu offers ultrasonic cavitation , laser slimming, and needle-free mesotherapy. Cavitation therapy utilizes powerful low frequency ultrasound to cause fat cells to implode and leak out their contents which are then eliminated by the liver and kidneys while laser slimming drills holes into the fat cells causing them to leak out their fatty content. Mesotherapy is a treatment that delivers nutrients, medications and other biologicals to the mesoderm layer of the skin and subcutaneously as well. When used with phosphatidylcholine (also known as lecithin), mesotherapy can dissolve unwanted fatty deposits. These non-invasive treatments are safe for male breasts, arms, abdomen, back, buttock, and thighs Many patients see results with one treatment but usually 4-6 treatments are needed to yield the desired results. There is no down-time or discomfort with this treatment.
