    Uplift Facelift – Invisible Scarring and Minimal Downtime

    Plastic surgery of the neck and facial soft tissues (fat, skin, and muscle) can result in dramatic rejuvenation. These procedures are popularly known as necklifts or facelifts. A unique procedure called face “Uplift” has been introduced by M-Body. The technique results in invisible scarring and minimal downtime. It involves deep muscle suspension of the neck.

    Modern Body Contouring and Laser Center, led by board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton M. Sundin and Dr. Reps B. Sundin, provides Uplift facelift to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and surrounding communities.

    “Uplift” Facelift Treatment Goals

    “Uplift” technique is used for re-suspending the soft tissues in the face and neck. It involves removing excess skin and neck lifting. Particularly, features such as sagging cheek folds, jowls, depressed mouth corners, descent of cheek fat, and ‘fat’ or sagging neck can be surgically corrected.

    Understanding the “Uplift” Procedure

    Uplift cosmetic surgery is performed using well-masked incisions in front of the ear. The incisions extend all the way behind the hairline. In some cases, an additional incision may be performed beneath the chin. Your face and neck have several layers, which includes fat, skin, muscle, and fascia (a strong tissue layer that covers the facial muscles).

    Deep plane suspension (SMAS facelift) is performed during an Uplift procedure. This involves re-contouring of fat layer, tightening of the skin and/or fascia, and tightening of the neck muscles. Newer concept of re-contouring, re-suspension, and preserving of precious skin and fat has supplanted previous techniques of cutting out excess skin.

    SMAS re-suspension technique offers innovative and long-term results. It also provides more natural results. Skilled surgeons know that loss of fat and deflation is an important component of facial aging. They focus on placement of implants and fat grafting for restoration of facial volume.

    Uplift Achieves Face and Neck Harmony

    Balance is an important concept in Uplift. Your lower face and upper face or eyebrows don’t age independent of the neck. Best results are often obtained when total facial rejuvenation is performed. However, this doesn’t mean that you need to get all procedures performed at the same time. Surgeries can be performed separately as long as balance in the upper, lower, and neck region is considered a priority.

    Neck lifts and face lifts are generally performed concurrently because they are interdependent. Uplift technique makes it possible to achieve results in a minimally invasive manner with little scarring.

    Results and Recovery

    Neck lift and facelift with the innovative Uplift technique ensures optimal patient comfort. Recovery involves potential bruising, mild swelling, and incision care. Your treatment provider will ask you to stop smoking 3 weeks before the surgery and continue to not smoke for 6 weeks or more following the surgery. You may suffer from skin necrosis if you don’t follow the instructions to stop smoking.

    Proper pre- and post-operative treatment and care makes Uplift a wonderful solution for treating progressive signs of facial aging. It can dramatically improve the contours in the face and neck. Cosmetic surgeons at MBody receive patients from Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and nearby areas for Uplift facelift procedure.

    VibraSculpt – Vibration Assisted Liposuction

    VibraSculpt Body Contouring

    Vibration assisted liposuction or VibraSculpt is an advanced, minimally invasive method for removing fat surgically. The process makes use of a suction cannula for gently cutting and removing any surplus fat tissue. The cannula moves axially in a fast vibrational mode that works in combination with the suction vacuum. Patient outcomes are maximized safely and comfortable with this technology.

    VibraSculpt is designed for adults of all ages. It is effective in removing subcutaneous fat tissue. The process is useful in refining and shaping the skin. A large section of the society is exposed to a demanding work pace and lifestyle. It results in the storage of visible subcutaneous fat. VibraSculpt is a safe, comfortable, and proven procedure for restoring slimmer and shapelier body contours.

    Modern Body Contouring & Laser Center, led by board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton M. Sundin and Dr. Reps B. Sundin, provides CoolSculpting Elite body contouring treatment to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and surrounding locations.

    How Does it Work?

    VibraSculpt makes use of a device which is similar to a pneumatic hammer. The device makes the suction cannula vibrate that cause fat cells to separate at a quicker rate from the surrounding connective tissue structure. This shortens the entire process and increases the efficiency of suctioning.

    Cannula vibrations sparingly act on blood vessels and nerve fibers present in the subcutaneous tissue. This helps in reducing side effects and allows for faster recovery post-surgery. Traditional liposuction has been in use for over 30 years. However, VibraSculpt has completely revolutionized the procedure. It allows the body to be modeled to a whole new level when carried out by an experienced surgeon.

    These are a few target areas that can be effectively treated by VibraSculpt:

    • Outer thighs
    • Inner thighs
    • Banana fold
    • Waist
    • Abdomen
    • Gynecomastia
    • Lipomastia
    • Hamstrings
    • Calves
    • Arms
    • Knees
    • Back
    • Buttocks
    • Chin

    Benefits of VibraSculpt

    These are a few advantages of using VibraSculpt:

    • Gentle vibrations help in increasing patient comfort
    • Verification of abdominal etching and symmetry can be carried out
    • Patients can visually inspect dynamic results
    • Minimal bruising
    • Less downtime
    • Excellent skin tightening results
    • Risk is lower since sedation is not required
    • Vibration assisted analgesia can reduce discomfort for up to 36 hours
    • Time saving procedure
    • Gentle and homogeneous fat removal
    • Less force and effort are required for moving the cannula which allows surgeons to move with increased precision

    VibraSculpt and Other Procedures

    Patients can choose to combine VibraSculpt with other procedures depending on the degree of elasticity in their skin. They can combine the procedure with laser liposuction, Bodytite, Facetite, and Renuvion/JPlasma among other minimally invasive tightening procedures.

    What to Expect Post Procedure?

    VibraSculpt is a tolerable procedure. The treated area can turn red with minor swelling and bruising. These effects disappear within a few days generally without any medical intervention. VibraSculpt is an outpatient treatment and doesn’t require hospitalization. Patients can usually return to work almost immediately. However, you would need to refrain from participating in any heavy activities for at least 3 days.

    Cosmetic surgeons at MBody receive patients from Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and nearby areas for CoolSculpting Elite fat reduction treatments.

    Radiofrequency Microneedling With Lutronic’s Genius And Infini

    Radiofrequency Microneedling

    Infini and Genius are high-intensity focused microneedling technologies designed by Lutronic. The techniques involve delivering radiofrequency (RF) energy for effective skin rejuvenation by generating collagen. Genius and Infini combine fractional radiofrequency and microneedling unlike other procedures.

    The treatment delivers radiofrequency energy while creating microchannels in the targeted areas to treat from the inside out. This enables tissue tightening and triggers fresh collagen growth.

    Modern Body Contouring and Laser Center, led by board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton M. Sundin and Dr. Reps B. Sundin, provides RF microneedling with Lutronic’s Genius and Infini techniques to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and surrounding communities.

    Delivering Precision with Lutronic Genius

    Genius delivers precise energy in every pulse. These are a few characteristics of the treatment:

    • Superior handpiece and needle design helps in achieving precise depth
    • Real-Time Impedance Monitoring achieves precise coagulation zones by ensuring the desired energy is precisely and consistently delivered
    • Auto-customized best treatment for every patient
    • Offering real-time feedback
    • Comfortable patient experience
    • Needle tips and presets for a wide range of body areas and skin types
    • Improved patient comfort with intelligent design

    Precise Coagulation at Targeted Spots

    Lutronic Genius offers precise coagulation for regeneration of elastin and collagen. It also works towards improving skin texture, scars, laxity, and wrinkles on the body including:

    • Neck
    • Face
    • Abdomen
    • Axilla
    • Arms
    • Knees
    • Thighs

    Benefit from Innovative Needle Flow Technology with Infini

    There are several radiofrequency (RF) devices which claim to treat skin from the inside out. However, Infini is the only device which makes use of flow needle technology for delivering radiofrequency current at deeper skin levels within the dermis. Epidermis, the superficial level of skin, can be injured with potent radiofrequency energy.

    The second layer of the skin, the dermis, contains collagen, which supports the skin’s structure. Infini is useful in delivering heat energy through radiofrequency to the dermis. This creates multiple mini-coagulation zones in the dermis. Coagulation refers to precise and specific injuries which help towards encouraging collagen regrowth and tissue tightening at the right skin depth.

    Fractionated RF Delivery Using Infini and Genius

    Genius and Infini deliver multi-dimensional energy within dermal layers of the skin. These fractionated devices deliver energy in several zones. Skin can heal faster following carbon dioxide or radiofrequency fractionated treatments as compared to others.

    Infini Offers Microneedling

    Microneedling involves the use of tiny needles on the skin. Traditional microneedling doesn’t involve the delivery of energy or light. There are 49 microscopic needles on the Infini handpiece that are deployed by the treatment provider on the skin’s surface. The Infini microneedling tips are used for conducting radiofrequency energy at predetermined depths within the dermis. They are a huge advantage over traditional microneedling devices.

    Treatable Skin Conditions

    Wrinkles and lax skin concerns are the most common problems treated with Genius and Infini. The devices achieve collagen formation, tissue tightening, improvement of skin texture and re-volumization of tissues. The treatment is beneficial for skin tightening and wrinkles besides scar remodeling.

    The treatments can be used for all types of scars, including traumatic scars. Cosmetic surgeons at MBody receive patients from Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and nearby areas for RF microneedling with Lutronic’s Infini and Genius technologies.
