If you’ve been preparing for summertime by dieting and exercising, but are still left with some excess skin and stubborn fat, you should consider undergoing a BodyTite body contouring procedure. BodyTite is a procedure that takes advantage of technological innovations to help you achieve the body contours that you desire in a minimally invasive way that does not require surgery or leave scars.
What is BodyTite?
BodyTite is a body contouring procedure that uses advanced radiofrequency technology for the destruction of fat cells, safely and effectively tightening your skin and stimulating your body’s natural production of collagen.
How does BodyTite work?
Through tiny incisions, we insert the BodyTite applicator, which will be emitting thermal energy to break up stubborn fat deposits. The process also simultaneously tightens your skin. Each session takes a short time to complete, depending upon the size of the treatment area.
BodyTite can help correct:
- Flabby upper arms
- Abdominal skin laxity
- Fat deposits on the thighs
- Excess skin and fat along the bra line
Is BodyTite the same as liposuction?
BodyTite is somewhat similar to liposuction in that both procedures destroy and remove unwanted fat cells from specific areas of the body. While liposuction mechanically removes fat cells, BodyTite uses radiofrequency energy.
One of the main advantages of BodyTite over liposuction is that the procedure both removes unwanted fat and tightens skin, unlike traditional liposuction. People undergoing BodyTite treatments enjoy up to 30% more skin tightening and toning compared to traditional liposuction.
BodyTite vs. Liposuction: Recovery
Another key difference between BodyTite and liposuction is how your body responds after the treatments. Liposuction will result in some scars, which are typically larger than those left by BodyTite. In fact, any resulting scars after a BodyTite treatment may not be noticeable at all over time.
Liposuction patients are also somewhat uncomfortable, bruised, and swollen after their procedure. In contrast, the level of discomfort experienced by BodyTite patients is greatly reduced.
If you undergo a conventional liposuction procedure, your results will probably be evident in about three to nine months, with ideal results seen after one year. If you undergo a BodyTite procedure, you should notice immediate results, with optimal results noticeable after six months.
The BodyTite Procedure
Your procedure will be performed under local anesthesia to ensure your comfort. Your surgeon will create a tiny incision in the treatment area and place a probe into it. The probe will emit radiofrequency energy to destroy unwanted fat. A liposuction device will be used to remove the liquefied fat. Surrounding tissue will remain unaffected.
