Anyone ever heard of this? I searched the forums and had 0 results. My surgeon's office offers this procedure called ThermiSmooth Body. Here's their description of it and a link https://www.newyoubariatriccenter.com/your-weight-loss-journey/life-as-the-new-you/post-weight-loss-skin-tightening/ I've never ever heard of this before. Has anyone tried this post-op for skin tightening? There are before/after pics at the link.

"Do you have loose skin in your arms, legs or stomach? Are you interested in a non-surgical option for your New You? ThermiSmooth Body uses radiofrequency technology to gently and safely remodel collagen. By targeting the areas under the skin, we are able to tighten and firm loose skin and reduce the appearance of cellulite. This non-invasive procedure feels much like a hot stone massage. Treatments last 10 minutes per area and are performed over six sessions for best results."

Awesome! According to the Finger & Associates link, ThermiSmooth sounds like a better deal (haven't hit those other links yet):

  • Pain or discomfort: The ThermiSmoothโ€“none. CoolSculpting (CS)โ€“mild to moderate.
  • Pain or discomfort after treatment: ThermiSmoothโ€“none. CoolSculptingโ€“mild to moderate.
  • Numbness after treatment: ThermiSmoothโ€“none. CSโ€“yes, for a few days to weeks.
  • Swelling: ThermiSmoothโ€“none. CoolSculptingโ€“for a few days to weeks.
  • What to expect: ThermiSmoothโ€“reduces fat, tightens skin, reduces wrinkles, reduces cellulite. CoolSculpting reduces fat.
  • The ThermiSmooth can be used virtually anywhere on the body plus around the eyes, forehead, mouth, lower face, areas not commonly used with CoolSculpting. Both can be used for the body, arms, legs and neck.

I've been curious about cool-sculpting as an alternative to plastic surgery

I bought a home cavitation machine in the hopes that it could help tighten the skin as I lose weight. There are several on the market. https://abeautyhealthy.com/ultrasound-cavitation-machines/ To be clear, I do not sell these!

I dont get it. As my understanding u say in your post that your surgeon uses this thermosmooth procedure. You also say that you trying to find info on it with 0 results. And you say you never heard of this before and you dont know anything about it... Then all of a sudden your Conversation changes and you know all about the procedue. You even put a website here and you have knowledge on what your saying. You explain it detail by detail. You even explain how it works n how long it takes n how many sessions nessesary. But i thought you said you couldnt find any info on it. Then you go on to say "We are able to tighten and firm loose skin" so you do know about this procedure and your promoting it. Is that it. Because you confused me here with two diff. Stories. Sorry im not here to offend no one i just want to know whats the deal.

The BP forums, at the time, had no info on ThermiSmooth. No one at the time had posted about it. I hadnโ€™t researched it either. I was reading my surgeons site, saw it, copied and pasted the basic info into my post and was curious about otherโ€™s possible experience with it. I was sharing info I had just learned. Iโ€™m not promoting anything no more than people talk about their skin removal surgery. Chill out, lady. Geez. Not that big a deal. ๐Ÿ™„

      Hi Iย  am new here and I am going to have the gastric sleeve next month. I have to pay out of pocket so it is going quite quickly. The longer I wait the more bad stories I hear. I weigh 315 and 61 years old so I have a lot to lose. Any advice is welcome

      Went to my initial consult with the Bariatric surgeon/ program I chose. Came home with a folder full of information &ย helpful organization of all the testing that needs to be completed while I complete the required nutritional counseling. She also let me know my insurance typically takes 6 weeks to reply with authorization when submitted, so that puts my potential surgery date near the new year if all stays on trackย ย I felt comfortable with her, in our discussions she agrees that I am a good candidate for the Gastric Bypass. I appreciated the 'introduction' class that was given after the consult with the surgeon where I was given this binder of every referral (from her, not my pcp referrals), & contact information for all the testing needed to make my contacts/calls tomorrow morning even easierย I start my nutrition classes on June 5th, so that's when the clock will start toward insurance approval & getting the tool to help me reach my goals
