What is a BodyTite procedure?
Are you noticing areas of mild to moderate skin laxity, cellulite, or stubborn fat pockets? If this sounds like you, you may be able to benefit from the breakthrough treatment, BodyTite!
BodyTite is a minimally invasive solution to tighten skin, assist in removing stubborn fat, diminish the appearance of cellulite, and firm and re-contour your body. This procedure is safe for most any area that you wish to treat including the arms, chest, stomach, thighs, back, and more! Even better yet, it can enhance liposuction results, without additional incisions and scarring!
Who is a Candidate?
Candidates for BodyTite are those who want to eliminate stubborn fat that is resistant to diet and exercise. At the same time, BodyTite can improve skin elasticity and reduce the appearance of cellulite. To be a successful candidate, patients should be within their ideal, healthy weight range first. They should be committed to maintaining a healthy lifestyle through diet and exercise in order to maintain their body contouring results. Patients might choose BodyTite if they do not want the anesthesia, incisions, or a long recovery period that often comes with a surgical procedure.
How does it work?
The BodyTite procedure delivers energy directly to the deep layers of the skin, causing the collagen fibers to shrink, tighten, and remodel. This controlled radio-frequency assisted lipolysis energy is evenly distributed throughout the deep layers of the skin to smooth, tighten, and create a clearer contour. It can be used in conjunction with liposuction to ensure that the skin does not sag, but rather gives better skin contraction for a tighter, firmer look.
Results and Recovery
The length of recovery will depend on the size of the area treated and whether or not liposuction techniques were utilized. During the recovery process, patients might notice some mild swelling and redness in the treated area, but this should diminish in the next day or two. Standard downtime can last between 5-7 days and best results are noticeable after 3-6 months. After this time, patients can enjoy reduced fat without sagging or wrinkling, and tighter, firmer skin. Once the fat cells have been eliminated, they cannot return. However, patients can still gain weight in untreated areas, so maintaining a healthy weight is the best way to ensure an improved body contour that lasts.
