Renuvion (J-Plasma) is an innovative technique designed to create tighter, smoother, and more youthful skin appearance. The procedure is ideally suited for people who want to avoid plastic surgery procedures such as facelift or neck lift surgery.

At the time of pre-op consultation, the surgeon will apprise the patient about the benefits and limitations of Renuvion (J-Plasma) treatment, and help them make an informed choice.

Some surgeons may also prefer to present Renuvion (J-Plasma) before and after photographs at the first appointment. This will give the patient a fair idea of whether J Plasma treatment actually delivers the results it promises, and they can make a more confident decision.

Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery, led by board-certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton Sundin and Dr. Reps Sundin, provides Renuvion (J-Plasma) treatment to patients in Richmond, Fredericksburg and surrounding communities.

What are Renuvion (J-Plasma) Before and After Photographs?

Before and after photographs in case of Renuvion (J-Plasma) skin tightening procedure refer to a set of pictures belonging to a past patient who has undergone the same procedure with good results. The set includes images taken before the treatment and after the treatment at a stage when the recovery is complete and full results of Renuvion (J-Plasma) procedure are visible.

The surgeon will take care to ensure that the photos are obtained with full consent of the patient, and presented before new patients in a discreet manner. The patient’s identity is usually kept confidential as per the established protocol.

The surgeon’s only goal behind this exercise is to utilize the before and after photos to introduce new patients to an innovative treatment like Renuvion (J-Plasma), and help them make a well-considered decision.


Face and neck are aesthetically the most prominent and exposed areas of the body. Therefore, patients are often more concerned about any cosmetic procedure that may involve these areas. Renuvion (J-Plasma), in particular, is a new and innovative procedure.

Therefore, to the reassure the patient about its potential effects, the best approach may be to present Renuvion (J-Plasma) before and after photos at the very outset.

The patient may be confused about choices such as whether to undergo Renuvion (J-Plasma) procedure for the face or neck or both, or whether to combine J Plasma with another procedure such as liposuction plastic surgery. In each case, the patient is in a better position to make the right decisions when they have access to Renuvion (J-Plasma) before and after photos.

The real salient fact about this is digital technology. With this type of technology, patients can see with amazing clarity the effects of this surgery on someone else. Armed with this information they can apply it to their own situation pretty much being able to predict the future.

The surgeon may also choose to provide these photos on their practice website for free access to all in order to increase awareness about the new treatment but this case, for Renuvion (J-Plasma), that has not been done yet but this does not mean a patient cannot see these pictures during the consultation. The consultation is free as well.
