Some doctors do perform liposuction with thermitight; however, often the fat can be melted with just the ThermiTight. For example, if there is a small pocket of fat under the chin, the ThermiTight probe can melt that fat and then be used under the skin to cause tightening.
I heard that Thermitight is more effective for skin tightening when combined with liposuction. Is there any truth to this?

ThermiTIGHT AND Liposuction best when combined.
TT uses a microprobe to heat and monitor the dermis from under the skin to cause dermal shrinking and collagen stimulation at one setting. During this technique it creates a heat reservoir within the underlying fat and eventual contraction underlying the area treated will further enhance the inflammatory and tightening effects with this combination.
Both skin shrinkage AND properly performed and contoured liposuction occur best when combined. . This technique is best used in larger areas of fat content for contouring where the skin is relatively thin such as:
- the inner thigh and just above the knee,
- the inner arm and posterior elbow
I hope this has helped. Always consult with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon with experience and talent in all techniques and combinations. All the best!
