New Research Shows Nearly Half of Elderly Suffer Decreased Mobility During Lockdown

In a survey of UK adults with parents over the age of 75, while over half (52%) of respondents remain worried about their parents catching Covid, 48 percent are concerned about parental loneliness, and 46 percent about their parents falling alone and not being able to get up or get help. This figure remained high even among those whose parents are in care homes, with 37% of respondents still most concerned about parents falling over.

InMode Aesthetic Solutions, a leader in aesthetic medicine and technology, was featured in the Aesthetic Surgery Journal detailing the popularity and success of Radio-Frequency Assisted Liposuction. Written by physicians Spero J. Theodorou, MD, Daniel Del Vecchio, MD and Christopher T. Chia, MD, this is the 22nd North American peer reviewed BodyTite/FaceTite publication.

Radio-Frequency Assisted Liposuction (RFAL) is an innovative concept in energy-assisted body contouring techniques and has received instrument approval. This article reviews the clinical application of radio frequency energy via BodyTite (InMode, California, USA) device on soft tissues during suction lipectomy, its effect on soft tissue contraction, and its use in aesthetic contouring in various clinical scenarios.

This publication represents the first time the treatment gap terminology is published in peer review. “There are a large number of these ‘in between’ patients in this ‘gap’ category that their clinical picture presents as ‘not bad enough for an excisional procedure and not good enough for liposuction.’ Specifically, areas of the body described as zones of nonadherence such as the arms, neck, and medial thighs may be amenable to Radio-Frequency Assisted Liposuction (RFAL) for satisfactory contouring who otherwise would be turned away with liposuction alone by the judicious surgeon. The RFAL technology, being more effective and directed at fat resection, can be achieved with an increased margin of safety since the skin can be anticipated to retract more than with manual suction-assisted lipectomy (SAL) alone,” quoted from the ASJ article.

Coupling judicious patient selection and good body contouring, RFAL has the potential to elicit a 3-dimensional soft tissue contraction for those nontraditional liposuction candidates and the ability to improve outcomes in patients where liposuction is an option, delivering the best outcome for both candidates.

This publication showcases InMode’s leadership in defining and dominating the minimally invasive category, where there was no existing good solution for patients.
