Loose, sagging skin is a part of getting older, but with SkinTite, it doesn’t have to be. Our own Dr. Epstein developed this revolutionary treatment to tighten skin and remove excess fat without extensive surgery. This treatment is much less invasive than many traditional treatment offerings, but still provides the effective results that our patients desire.
Does less invasive skin tightening sound too good to be true? With SkinTite by Renuvion, it really is possible. Learn more about SkinTite, and then, call our office to schedule your treatment at MAE Plastic Surgery in Chicago, the birthplace of the revolutionary SkinTite minimally invasive skin tightening and lifting procedure.
What Is SkinTite?
SkinTite combines two popular procedures, liposuction and radiofrequency (RF) skin tightening to lift, smooth, and tighten the skin. This procedure restores youthful facial and body contours, removes unwanted fat, improves skin laxity, and lifts sagging skin. There is no need for general anesthesia, and the entire procedure is performed with only light sedation and a local anesthetic.
Our patients love that they can return to work and daily activities as soon as they are comfortable. Many require no downtime and are back to work the very next day. Swelling and bruising are minimal. Recovery after SkinTite is much easier than recovery from a more invasive surgical treatment like a tummy tuck or facelift.
The SkinTite procedure starts with a highly focused liposuction treatment. A small cannula is used to gently suction unwanted fat from the treatment area. Once the area is shaped and contoured, RF is used to contract and tighten the skin. Plan to spend a couple of hours with us for your treatment. SkinTite takes about as long as a traditional liposuction treatment. You should be able to return home that same day, although someone will need to drive you because of the sedation.
SkinTite is ideal for patients who:
- Have sagging skin with or without excess fat
- Want to remove excess fat but have poor skin laxity
- Want to look younger and restore youthful contours to the face or body
- Are in good overall health

Is SkinTite as Effective as Invasive Surgical Procedures?
For the right patients, SkinTite can be very effective. Many of our patients are delighted by the results we can achieve using this less invasive treatment option. Of course, SkinTite isn’t always the best solution. In addition to this minimally invasive treatment, we also offer more invasive surgical treatments. We’ll help you weigh the pros and cons of both SkinTite and its surgical alternatives. Many patients can achieve good results and avoid an extended recovery period, but some patients will require surgery to achieve the desired results. It all depends on your body, your budget, your recovery timeline, and your goals for treatment. Let’s figure this out together; come in for a consultation, and we’ll talk options.
