Liposuction & Renuvion Skin Tightening Dr. Ali Tehrani Newport Beach, La Jolla, or Apple Valley

A liposuction and Renuvion (J-Plasma) treatment is a minimally invasive body contouring procedure that removes excess fat and tones your skin for a smooth, youthful appearance. As an increasing number of Americans struggle with excess fat, the popularity of body contouring methods such as liposuction has risen. In 2022, liposuction was one of the top five most sought-after cosmetic procedures, and 325,669 treatments were performed that year. (1) With a combined liposuction and Renuvion treatment, you also do not have to worry about the risk of sagging skin after fat removal. Renuvion tightens loose skin to sculpt your figure for your desired look. This dual-action approach results in more comprehensive and natural-looking results compared to traditional liposuction alone.

Dr. Ali Tehrani is an experienced board-certified Southern California plastic surgeon with decades of expertise helping patients achieve the body of their dreams. Our team can help you eliminate unwanted fat and tighten your skin for a more youthful contour.

About Liposuction & Renuvion Skin Tightening

As you experience lifestyle changes such as pregnancy, you may notice an increase in excess fat. Even if you follow a special diet or exercise routine, maintaining a toned figure can become more difficult with age. With liposuction and Renuvion, patients can achieve the body contour they are looking for. This combination treatment is one of the best ways to eliminate stubborn fat and reduce sagging skin to help you look your best. 


Liposuction is a procedure designed to address localized fat deposits that are resistant to diet and exercise. It is important to understand that it is not a weight loss solution but rather a method to target specific areas where excess fat persists despite efforts towards a healthy lifestyle. After infiltrating the area with a numbing agent, Dr. Tehrani inserts a long metal tube called a cannula and uses it to break up and remove fat cells permanently. If there is mild skin sagging in the treatment area, he will recommend Renuvion as part of your treatment plan.


With Renuvion, we apply radiofrequency with plasma-rich helium to the tissue beneath your skin. The heat from both the plasma and radiofrequency causes the skin to contract and triggers the production of collagen for long-lasting results (neocollagenesis). Sagging skin is a common issue after fat loss, especially for those undergoing corresponding procedures such as weight loss treatments. (2) 

Benefits of Liposuction & Renuvion Skin Tightening

A liposuction and Renuvion treatment is customizable, and reducing excess fat will help you feel better in your body. The benefits of a liposuction and Renuvion treatment include the following: 

  • Eliminates excess pockets of stubborn fat
  • Achieves tighter, toned skin
  • Improves the appearance of muscle tone
  • Improves the overall contour of your body
  • Increases body confidence

If you are thinking about receiving Renuvion without liposuction, you can customize your treatment plan to suit your needs. 


You are likely a good candidate for a liposuction and Renuvion treatment if you are having trouble with excess fat despite lifestyle changes. The information you provide during your initial consultation will help us determine whether or not you are a good candidate for the treatment. The ideal candidate should also have good skin elasticity, as the skin must be able to adjust and adhere to the new contours after the fat removal. Individuals should be in overall good health and have realistic expectations about the outcomes of the procedure. If you smoke or have pre-existing conditions such as asthma or high blood pressure, you may not be the best candidate for liposuction. (3) Dr. Tehrani will consider smokers who can quit in the weeks before and after their treatment.

Personal Consultation

Choosing the right plastic surgeon and understanding the best treatment options are crucial steps in achieving the desired outcomes with liposuction. When you visit Tehrani Plastic Surgery, you can expect a comprehensive evaluation and an open, honest discussion about your goals and expectations. During your consultation, you will need to come prepared to discuss your medical history, current medications, and lifestyle. Dr. Tehrani will ask you questions about what you want to achieve with liposuction and Renuvion treatment and will conduct an examination of skin quality and elasticity in the treatment area. If you are a suitable candidate for both treatments, we will schedule your procedure for a later date after your consultation.


After your initial consultation, you will receive detailed instructions about how to prepare for your procedure. We will ask you to stop smoking and discontinue blood-thinning supplements to aid the recovery process and minimize your risk of side effects. If you are planning to have corresponding procedures such as a Brazilian butt lift or tummy tuck in addition to Renuvion and liposuction, then your instructions to prepare for surgery will vary. 

Although this procedure is minimally invasive, we recommend that you prepare your meals ahead of time. Make sure you arrange for a trustworthy adult to drive you home after your procedure and monitor you during the first 24-48 hours of your recovery. We also recommend that you go grocery shopping and plan your meals ahead of time for convenience. 

Recovery & Results

This is a minimally invasive treatment that can tone your skin and remove excess fat without a lengthy recovery time. Though full healing can take 1-2 weeks, patients usually return to work sooner. You may need to wear a compression garment to help your body with the recovery process depending on the treatment you receive. You will also need to rest, so having a trusted adult who can care for you is important, especially if you receive corresponding treatments. 

After your liposuction and Renuvion treatment, you will gain a smoother, flatter midsection and see a drastic change in your body contour. 

Corresponding Procedures 

Brazilian Butt Lift 

If you are contouring the abdominal area, you may wish to receive a Brazilian Butt Lift in addition to liposuction and Renuvion. A Brazilian Butt Lift is a procedure that shapes the buttocks to help you achieve the figure you desire. During a Brazilian Butt Lift, we will remove excess fat from the abdomen, prepare it, then reinject it into the buttocks for a fuller, “hourglass-like” figure. 

Tummy Tuck

A tummy tuck is a procedure that reduces excess fat and skin in the abdominal area. The treatment requires one long incision across the bikini line and around the navel to allow our team to remove moderate to severe sagging skin and fat in the abdominal area. Where abdominal muscles have separated due to pregnancy, Dr. Tehrani will suture the muscle internally to strengthen and reinforce the area.

Is liposuction uncomfortable?

You might experience some discomfort after liposuction for the first few days. The discomfort you experience will depend on the type of procedure you have and whether or not you have corresponding treatments (such as a tummy tuck or Brazilian butt lift). 

Will I have scarring from liposuction or Renuvion?

Patients occasionally experience a small mole-sized scar where we make the incision for Renuvion and liposuction. However, the scar is barely noticeable and we do everything we can to minimize the risk. 

What is the difference between Renuvion skin tightening and other non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatments?

Renuvion skin tightening distinguishes itself through its use of J-Plasma technology, which combines radiofrequency energy with helium plasma. This unique combination delivers controlled and precise energy to the treated area, resulting in exceptional skin tightening and firming outcomes.

Are liposuction and Renuvion safe to pair together?

Yes, many patients have received liposuction and enjoyed the results they have been able to achieve with the addition of Renuvion. Thousands of patients have experienced the life-changing benefits of this procedure with minimal side effects.

Can liposuction remove stretch marks?

While liposuction primarily targets excess fat, it is not specifically designed to remove stretch marks. However, in some cases, stretch marks may appear less noticeable or blended after the removal of the underlying fat deposit.

Are liposuction results permanent?

The results achieved through liposuction are considered long-lasting. The removed fat cells do not return to the treated area. However, it is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle following the procedure to ensure that the remaining fat cells do not expand.
