First plastic surgeon in San Antonio to offer innovative procedure
SAN ANTONIO (February 26, 2018) – In a bold effort to advance the practice of plastic surgery, Suresh Koneru, M.D. is the first board-certified plastic surgeon in San Antonio to provide an innovative procedure for patients desiring a progressive, skin tightening, in-office liposuction treatment. BodyTite and FaceTite, are revolutionary new liposuction procedures that are distinctly different from traditional methods because they melt body fat while also firming the skin, a dual benefit not produced by liposuction alone.
There are two main benefits BodyTite and FaceTite provide patients. Both are minimally invasive, and they utilize radiofrequency to produce two effects: heating tissue to melt fat and tighten skin around the treated area. “I chose to offer the BodyTite platform because it benefits patients in numerous ways,” said Dr. Koneru, chief physician at Advanced Concepts in Plastic Surgery. “Patients have peace of mind knowing the procedure requires very little preparation on their part, and the recovery period afterward is brief. BodyTite and FaceTite procedures allow many patients to be treated in the office, with a local anesthetic, and the incisions are tiny, resulting in minor soreness which dissipates quickly.”
Havingperformed thousands of surgeries in his over 20-yearcareer, Dr. Koneru is dedicated to utilizing new safe and effective techniques that help patients reach their health and beauty goals. Being the first board-certified plastic surgeon in San Antonio to perform Body Tite and Face Tite procedures, he’s able to meet more patients’ needs. Men and women recognize the benefits of face and body treatments, and these types of procedures are more common because of patients’ increasing desire to minimize fine lines, reduce body fat and tighten loose skin. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, liposuction is the second most common plastic surgery procedure, and wrinkle reduction is the most common noninvasive procedure. The BodyTite platform allows Dr. Koneru to address these 2 common concerns with one simple minimally invasive procedure.
Dr. Koneru, a native of San Antonio, owns Advanced Concepts in Plastic Surgery, P.A. He earned his medical degree from the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, now known as University of Texas Health San Antonio, before completing his internship and residency training at the Hospital of St. Raphael, a Yale University Hospital. Dr. Koneru studied with the nation’s leading cosmetic, hand and reconstructive surgeons during his specialized residency training at University Hospitals of Cleveland. He is a former president of the San Antonio International Society of Plastic Surgeons, former chief of staff at Southeast Baptist Hospital, former chairman of the Department of Plastic Surgery at Baptist Hospital System and is a member of the Bexar County Medical Society and Texas Medical Association.
