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:

Renuvion J-Plasma Skin Tightening

This revolutionary skin tightening treatment uses radiofrequency energy to heat helium gas, creating an invisible gas-like plasma. When delivered below the skin’s surface, this plasma contracts collagens, proteins, and the septal fiber network within the tissue, to produce exceptional results, even for patients with moderate to severe skin laxity. Renuvion treatment is minimally-invasive (Dr. Hernandez makes just a few tiny incisions), performed under local anesthesia. The treatment takes about half as long as other skin tightening options, and most patients need only one treatment. Results are permanent. Renuvion J-Plasma can be used to treat virtually any part of the body, from the forehead to the legs.

VASER Liposuction

Liposuction has been a popular non-surgical body contouring treatment for years, and it is still one of the most effective techniques for eliminating stubborn fat from common problem areas once and for all. But with the advent of computerized VASER-assist, liposuction is now much gentler on the body and Dr. Hernandez has even more precise control as she performs the treatment. She can use VASERLipo to remove fat from almost anywhere on the body, including the lower face and neck, tailoring the procedure to match your desired outcome. VASERlipo 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.


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 Renuvion J-Plasma and/or VASERlipo with Morpheus8 radiofrequecy microneedling treatment in the same session. Morpheus8 is a different kind of skin resurfacing treatment that 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.

What’s right for you?
