Dr. Spero Theodorou unveils new EmbraceRF Procedure at 14th Annual Vegas Cosmetic Surgery Conference

bodySCULPT®, based in Manhattan, NYC, is pleased to announce the launch of EmbraceRF, a breakthrough, one-time minimally invasive facial contouring solution from InMode. Leading NYC plastic surgeon and founder of bodySCULPT® Dr Spero Theodorou along with top physicians Drs Bruce Katz and Christopher Khorsandi, will host  a  panel  to  unveil  the  new  EmbraceRF  procedure  and  share  scientific  advances  and  techniques  at  the  14th  annual  Vegas  Cosmetic  Surgery  Conference on June 6th 2018. The conference is being held June 6-10, 2018 at the Bellagio, Las Vegas, Nevada. .

EmbraceRF combines two innovative modalities from InMode’s line of benchmark radiofrequency technologies – FaceTite and Morpheus8 – to provide impressive results for rejuvenating the lower face and neck.

The EmbraceRF technique was developed by Dr. Spero Theodorou of bodySCULPT and Dr. Paolo Rovatti with Inmode’s, proprietary technology Morpheus8 and FaceTite. Morpheus8 is FDA-approved for up to a depth of 4mm. FaceTite utilizes RFAL (Radio-Frequency Assisted Lipolysis) to provide superior internal and external liposuction and strategic remodeling of the fibrous tissues. EmbraceRF provides surgical-quality results without scars or downtime.

As the only technology that allows subdermal adipose remodelling (SARD) of the face, EmbraceRF addresses a treatment gap in current modalities offered to patients. This  new  concept  of  facial  rejuvenation  can  only  be  performed consistently  and  safely  using  the  synergistic  combination  FaceTite  and  Morpheus8. This single, one-time procedure removes fat, treats both superficial and deep tissues, and tightens the skin in the neck and jowls, while retaining the youthful fullness of the face. It is ideal for anyone who has skin laxity with or without underlying fat concerns.

EmbraceRF  provides  physicians  and  patients  with  the  possibility  to  achieve  surgical-quality, permanent  results  in  a  45  minute  procedure  under  local  anesthesia  in  the  office.  With  only  a  down  time  of  48  hours,  or  a  long  weekend,  patients  can  return  to  their  daily  activities  quickly.

Physicians  can  visit  InMode  at  booth  #423  at the 14th annual  Vegas  Cosmetic  Surgery  Conference for  more  information.

bodySCULPT® Plastic Surgeons Invited to Speak at the RFAL – Aesthetic Surgery Workshop

Aesthetic Surgery WorkshopInmode Aesthetic Solutions that offers the most versatile technology platforms for in-demand aesthetic procedures, has invited bodySCULPT® plastic surgeons Dr. Spero Theodorou and Dr. Christopher T. Chia to speak at the RFAL – Aesthetic Surgery Workshop seminar they are hosting this December. These MEETH Alumni surgeons have extensive experience in performing diverse cosmetic surgery procedures. They are international authorities on the plastic and cosmetic surgery procedures they perform and have published studies on the same in international journals of plastic surgery.

An exclusive event for ASPS/ASAPS Plastic Surgeons & AAFPRS Facial Plastic Surgeons, this BodyTite / FaceTite Minimally Invasive Workshop is scheduled to be held on Saturday, December 10, 2016, from 8:30am – 4:00pm at JW Marriott Essex House, 160 Central Park S, NYC.

The major attraction of the event is O.R. surgical LIVE feed using RFAL (radiofrequency assisted liposuction). This informative workshop will have discussions on novel aesthetic devices such as:

  • Fractora (Fractional Resurfacing)
  • Forma (Skin Tightening)
  • Plus (Body Tightening)
  • BodyFX/MiniFX (Body Contouring)
  • Lumecca (Revolutionary IPL)
  • Diolaze (Laser Hair Removal)

Discussions will also be held on topics such as methods, instrumentation, patient selection and follow-up care for – Face Lift/Neck Lift, Brachioplasty, Mastopexy and Abdominoplasty using RFAL, RFAL Techniques used in combination with traditional techniques for enhanced outcomes, technique development and training, positioning RFAL procedures in the practice and marketing RFAL procedures to a specific market.

While BodyTite is a great solution for individuals looking to reduce fat without the saggy, wrinkly skin, FaceTite provides dramatic improvement in skin laxity on the face and neck, which was previously only attainable through a surgical procedure such as a facelift. These are minimally invasive procedures.

The InMode RF system used to perform these procedures utilizes Radio-Frequency Assisted Lipolysis (RFAL), providing surgery-like results with an insertion port similar to that of an 18 gauge needle. RFAL is a minimally invasive procedure that can be performed under local anesthesia, eliminating the need for an anesthesiologist.

This one day event provides a great opportunity for participating surgeons to learn how these BodyTite & FaceTite procedures can launch their practice towards a whole new level of success!

To register for this RFAL – Aesthetic Surgery Workshop, plastic surgeons can either send a fax to 855.411.6789 or send their emails to events@inmodemd.com, or register online at www.inmodemd.com/events.
