Dr. Polacek Adds Body Contouring Procedure

The Polacek Center for Plastic Surgery recently added Exilis, a proven technology for non-surgical body contouring and skin tightening, to its lineup of cosmetic enhancements.

Providence, Rhode Island (March 2011) – Dr. Lori Polacek, a board-certified plastic surgeon, is now offering Exilis to patients at her plastic surgery practice in Rhode Island. Exilis, a completely non-surgical procedure that uses radiofrequency energy to heat and shrink underlying tissue, is one of the most innovative and sophisticated techniques for body sculpting and skin tightening in recent years.

“I’m excited to add Exilis to my practice, and I think my patients will share in my excitement once they see what this treatment can do – all without surgery,” notes Dr. Polacek, one of the first Rhode Island plastic surgeons to offer Exilis for body contouring and skin tightening. “Many patients will choose this non-invasive body sculpting treatment because they want a tighter and slimmer look without the downtime associated with surgical procedures like liposuction.”

Dr. Polacek has been using radiofrequency energy to contour the body since the technique first became available. Exilis builds upon prior versions of this technology by utilizing a highly controlled and uniform energy flow. Because of the improvements in energy delivery offered by Exilis, Dr. Polacek can safely treat her patients without risk of over-treatment. This new technique also gives the maximal effect in the shortest time, with most patients needing as little as 4 treatments to see their desired effects.

In addition to shaping the body by targeting areas of stubborn fat, Exilis also can deliver dramatic tightening of the patient’s skin. The radiofrequency energy heats deep layers of tissue, shrinking fat cells but also contracting the tissue. It can even stimulate new collagen formation for some patients.

“This is a real breakthrough for people considering their cosmetic options – especially for people who think that the only way to achieve a more youthful face and tighter skin is with a facelift,” Dr. Polacek says. “Without surgery and without any downtime, my patients can change the tone and tightness of their skin. This treatment can help tighten the neck and jaw line area for people who have loose skin below the chin.”

Patients choosing Exilis often see noticeable improvement in as little as 4 treatments. The procedure can be used for any part of the body that has excess fat deposits like the abdomen, hips or thighs; or it can be used on areas that simply have lax skin like the face and neck.

For patients that require a different approach to changing their body shape, Dr. Polacek offers many other plastic surgery options for her patients, including Rhode Island breast augmentation and traditional liposuction. Dr. Polacek meets with each patient for a consultation to determine the right procedure for their cosmetic goals.
