Weight loss, pregnancy, and the passage of time can all leave us with loose, sagging skin and fat pockets that refuse to go away despite our efforts to eat right, exercise and lead a healthy lifestyle. These changes are frustrating, and they can make us feel self-conscious, but they do not have to be permanent! And – good news – you can achieve amazing improvement without surgery.
Whether you’re wishing for firmer, smoother contours on your face or elsewhere around your body, Eterna Cosmetic Surgery offers a non-surgical body contouring procedure that’s just right for you. Dr. Elizabeth Hernandez has assembled the best treatment options available today – proven winners that are safe and effective. As the first cosmetic surgeon to bring some of these treatment options to patients in San Antonio, she is both knowledgeable and highly skilled in producing exciting results for her patients.
We offer all of the following at Eterna Cosmetic Surgery:
BodyTite is an excellent choice to address lax skin and retained fat on the chest, abdomen, arms, knees, inner/outer thighs, and hips. Multiple areas can be treated in a single session. This procedure uses heat produced by precise radiofrequency energy to firm the skin while melting fat just beneath the skin’s surface. Dr. Hernandez makes tiny punctures in the skin to carefully remove the melted fat and restore a smoother, more youthful contour. Results are permanent and rarely require more than one treatment.
BodyTite is effective for all genders but is best for those whose skin still retains some elasticity. Most patients are in their 40s and 50s.
We’ve seen many advancements in non-surgical body enhancement over the years, but liposuction is still one of the most effective techniques for eliminating stubborn fat from common problem areas once and for all. Dr. Hernandez can perform liposuction to remove fat from almost anywhere on the body, including the neck, tailoring the procedure to match your desired outcome. Liposuction is not a remedy for obesity, but a solution for those struggling to smooth away fat deposits with diet and exercise alone.
While many procedures use heat to melt away fat, CoolSculpting freezes it instead. This unique technology is entirely non-invasive, so there is no downtime. It is designed for reducing fat on the belly, flanks, and thighs. CoolSculpting is appropriate for all ages and genders but is best for those who are at or near ideal weight.
The treatment is simple – Dr. Hernandez positions a fold of skin and unwanted fat within the CoolSculpting applicator which then freezes the fat cells without affecting surrounding tissues. She will repeat this process as necessary depending on the size of the treatment area. Following the procedure, your body will naturally metabolize and eliminate the frozen fat cells.
Wishing you could do something about that double chin? There’s a CoolSculpting treatment just for that called CoolMini! Puffiness under the chin can make us look older, tired, and/or plump. This is also one of the toughest areas to reduce on your own with diet and exercise, especially since double chin is often hereditary. You can blame your ancestors, but unlike them, you can fix the problem by visiting Eterna Cosmetic Surgery for CoolMini treatments.
Similar to BodyTite, this procedure is designed specifically to reduce fat and firm skin to rejuvenate contours on the face and neck. Using FaceTite, Dr. Hernandez can produce near surgical-like results. Imagine a significantly “lifted” looking face and neck, without the expense, recovery time, downtime, and other challenges associated with invasive surgery! Plus, FaceTite results are permanent.
Erase years from your skin’s appearance with this non-invasive skin resurfacing treatment that requires little to no downtime. Morpheus8 differs from other skin resurfacing procedures in that it uses a combination of microneedling and fractional radiofrequency technology to produce smoother, firmer skin virtually anywhere on the body. It is powerful yet safe and effective for all skin types and colors, and because it also stimulates renewed production of collagen and elastin, your skin will continue to improve on its own.
As great as FaceTite and Morpheus8 can be to rejuvenate facial skin surface and tone, imagine the results when Dr. Hernandez combines these two popular procedures! That’s EmbraceRF. First, Dr. Hernandez will perform FaceTite on your lower face and neck, then she will re-treat the same area using Morpeus8. The results are truly impressive, refining fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, and acne scars without the scarring or downtime associated with facelift surgery.
From your forehead and eyelids to your thighs, calves, and even your labia, AccuTite gently but very effectively firms the skin and reduces unwanted fat. In Dr. Hernandez’s experienced hands, this treatment results in smoother, more pleasing contours and tighter skin. AccuTite is a non-surgical procedure that uses radiofrequency to produce amazing results with minimal downtime. The procedure also triggers new collagen production, so you will continue to see improvement in surface texture and firming over several months.
Get even better results
Each of the procedures described above can produce dramatic results on their own. In combination, they can do even more. This is why a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Hernandez is so valuable. After hearing about your aesthetic concerns and goals for your face and/or body, she may recommend just one type of procedure or she may recommend combining them to design a unique treatment plan that comprehensively addresses your objectives.
For example, many of our patients at Eterna Cosmetic Surgery love what Dr. Hernandez can do for them by combining BodyTite with Morpheus8 treatment in the same session. Others choose a special combination of FaceTite and Morpheus8 treatments, a procedure called EmbraceRF.
