Thank you for your question. Etching does not tighten the skin, and volume loss/removal only predisposes you to more loose skin. There may be some tightening with the procedure, but the loss of volume versus tightening does not offset the volume loss so there is a net increase in laxity of the skin. I hope this helps.

    Hard to know the answer to this without an exam.   You may have skin laxity or you may have more fat to liposuction.  Find a plastic surgeon with ELITE credentials who performs hundreds of liposuction procedures each year.  Then look at the plastic surgeon's website before and after photo galleries to get a sense of who can deliver the results.  Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA
