  • Pearls & Pitfalls of Ultrasound Guided Gluteal Fat Transfer presented by Giselle Prado-Wright, MD, MBA Session 12 (Ultrasound-Guided Brazilian Butt Lift), Thursday, February 22, 2024, 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time

  • Excisional vs. Minimally Invasive Interventions for Loose Skin presented by Giselle Prado-Wright, MD, MBA; Session 33 (Abdominoplasty & Body Contouring); Saturday, February 24, 2024, 11:00 a.m. Eastern Time

  • A Contiguous Series Retrospective Review of Patient Charts where Renuvion was used for Body Contouring Compared to the InMode RF System presented by Michael Kluska, DO, FAACS, FACOS; Session 38 (Adjuncts for Total Patient Care); Saturday, February 24, 2024, 1:30 p.m. Eastern Time

The presentation by Dr. Michael Kluska will feature the results of a retrospective clinical study conducted by Kluska et al. The study evaluated retrospective procedure and safety data to compare Renuvion’s Helium Plasma Technology to InMode’s Bipolar RF System when used in conjunction with liposuction or body contouring. Demographic, procedure and safety data were collected and evaluated from a contiguous series of more than 450 patients, including 229 patients treated with Renuvion and 236 patients treated with Bipolar RF. The researchers analyzed adverse events recorded by the body area during or post-procedure for each group. They found a statistically significant difference in the number of reported adverse events between these two patient groups (p-value <.0001), including significantly fewer adverse events reported for burns, hematoma, hypertrophic scar, and seroma in the Renuvion helium plasma RF group compared to the bipolar RF group.
