Plastic Surgery Practice Offers Alternative to Liposuction in Los Angeles

Share Article

Marina Plastic Surgery Associates recently added the Exilis procedure for non-invasive body contouring and skin tightening. Many people thinking about lipo are choosing the treatment.

Dr. Grant Stevens of Marina Plastic Surgery Associates (, an esteemed surgeon who specializes in liposuction in Los Angeles, has recently added a new procedure to his list of non-surgical body contouring and skin tightening options. This new procedure, called Exilis, uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to tighten the skin and reduce fat in targeted regions of the body. This technology differs from other body contouring methods currently offered.

Dr. Stevens states, "I am thrilled to be adding this procedure to the menu, as it is a new and innovative treatment for non-surgical body contouring. In the past, there were limited options for body contouring in general, and most were limited to surgical procedures. Now, with treatments such Exilis, women and men have several options for contouring specific areas of the body, without having to consider surgery."

Exilis is non-surgical, and works by heating the deep layers of the skin with radiofrequency energy. At this point, the heat causes the fat cells to shrink, as well as contracting the skin tissue, resulting in reduced fat cells and more taut skin. Exilis also stimulates the production of collagen, which helps keep skin tight and firm.

"Exilis is an exciting treatment because it can be used in a variety of areas on the body," explains Dr. Stevens. "Unlike many other contouring procedures that liposuction surgeons in Los Angeles offer, Exilis can be used on the face to help contour and reshape the jowls, cheeks and chin. One of the best parts about this treatment is that normal activities can be resumed immediately, meaning there is no downtime."

In addition to Exilis, Dr. Stevens also offers other non-surgical body contouring procedures that include minimal to no downtime. These contouring procedures include CoolSculpting™ by ZELTIQ™ and ZERONA™. By offering different surgical and non-surgical options, lipo in Los Angeles may not be the only solution to long-term fat reduction.

Dr. Stevens says, "I am excited to offer several procedures, as each person is different, and may require a specific treatment for optimal results." He continues, "Helping contour the body and even specific areas of the face and neck can help improve self-esteem and confidence. Improving lives by restoring confidence is one of the biggest goals at Marina Plastic Surgery Associates, and one of the most fulfilling aspects of what we do."
