Liposuction plastic surgery has been used for over three decades as a body contouring procedure to reduce excess fat deposits.
However, sometimes the patient may be left with loose or sagging skin in the treated areas after the fat pockets are eliminated. This is where a combination of liposuction with J Plasma skin tightening procedure can help.
Modern Body Contouring & Laser Center, led by board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton Sundin and Dr. Reps Sundin, provides liposuction in conjunction with J Plasma to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and surrounding locations across the horizon.

Combining Advanced Technologies for Body Contouring
The surgeon at MBody may recommend tumescent liposuction plastic surgery technique, which only involves the use of local anesthesia and requires smaller incisions in targeted areas.
A slender cannula will be used to remove unwanted fat cells, and the patient can have slimmer contours in the treated sites in a relatively comfortable and less invasive manner, which also makes for a quicker recovery.
If the patient’s skin tissue in the treated areas has lost a significant amount of elasticity because of the stretched tissue with fat deposits, it can create uneven results or leave the skin loose, wrinkled or saggy. To address this potential aesthetic problem, the surgeon at MBody will combine tumescent liposuction with the revolutionary power of J Plasma.
With J Plasma, the surgeon can provide targeted tightening beneath the skin. This will gently contract the tissue, allowing the patient to not only have reduced fat deposits but also firmer and smoother skin. Therefore, the patient can have more youthful, attractive and natural looking body contours in the treated areas with vibrant and smooth skin.
Safe and Quick In-Office Procedure
The patient will be administered lidocaine or another local anesthetic to adequately numb the targeted areas. They may be given a prescription medication to relax, but will stay awake throughout the procedure. The surgeon will manipulate the thin cannula after inserting it in the deeper tissue through small incisions, and remove stubborn fat.
The dislodged fat cells will be suctioned out with a pump or syringe attached to the other end of the cannula. Following the fat removal procedure, which may only take a few minutes, the surgeon will insert the J Plasma cannula.
This will utilize cold plasma to tighten the tissue in the site that was just liposuctioned. The J Plasma treatment will work to address the skin laxity and create smoother, tauter skin.
The entire procedure from the moment local anesthesia is administered to the closing of the incisions will only take less than two hours. The patient can return home the same day.
The surgeon will provide the patient with a compression garment, which they should wear for about two weeks to allow the new contours to firm up well. The patient may go through a downtime of about one week, after which they can resume their normal activities or go to work.
