BODYTITEPROCEDURE

BodyTite is a procedure designed to reduce fat and treat loose skin without any stitches or scarring. This is a minimally invasive procedure that shapes, tightens, and lifts but without using a scalpel. BodyTite can give you exceptional results without excision scars and reshape your body completely.

About Bodytite

BodyTite is a non-invasive technique for reshaping and tightening your body without the prolonged downtime and visible scars. This procedure is ideal for patients who have recently lost a significant amount of weight or have saggy skin and excess fat due to aging. BodyTite provides surgical-like results with a quick recovery.

The procedure is perfect for individuals who exercise regularly and maintain a healthy diet but cannot achieve the desired results. BodyTite can reduce fat but without the saggy and wrinkly skin.

Best Candidate For Bodytite

If you are unhappy with the shape of your body and the excess skin which cannot be corrected with regular exercise and a healthy diet, and you do not want to resort to surgery, you may be a good candidate for a BodyTite procedure. The ideal candidate is an individual with moderate skin laxity and a certain amount of fat that is to be reduced. If you have a think skin and severe laxity, this procedure may not be the best solution for you. In such cases, a tummy tuck or another procedure may be better options.

Benefits and Risks of Bodytite 

Undergoing this as well as any other procedure is an extremely personal choice, so you should be certain of your decision. You should schedule a consultation with a reputable doctor and inform yourself on the procedure. You should consider the benefits as well as the risks of the procedure before you make a final decision. The benefits of a BodyTite procedure include:

  • Better-shaped body contours without excision
  • No lumpy or irregular appearance that can occur with liposuction
  • Controlled energy distribution
  • Maximized RF utilization in the targeted area
  • No anesthesia necessary
  • Decreased downtime
  • Gentler extraction of unwanted fat
  • No bruising or swelling

Just like any other procedure, certain risks are related to the BodyTite procedure. Even though the procedure is minimally-invasive and painless, there are some risks involved with the procedure:

  • Bruising
  • Swelling
  • Uneven skin for several weeks
  • Redness
  • Sensitivity in the area treated
  • Soreness after the procedure

The Procedure

Before the procedure begins, your doctor will examine the areas to be treated and take pictures. He will then clean the area and administer an anesthetic in order to make the fat numb. During the procedure, a cannula (hollow thin tube) is used which is inserted through very small incisions (about 3mm). Once the fat is softened, it is removed using the cannula. The BodyTite procedure requires no general anesthesia or intravenous sedation.

BodyTite is powered by RFAL (Radio-Frequency Assisted Lipolysis which addresses the targeted areas by delivering uniform heating to the tissue matrix. The BodyTite device uses radiofrequency to tighten the tissue and skin while also stimulating collagen production. Application of RFAL offers controlled heat but does not damage the surrounding tissue. BodyTite is a relatively quick one-step procedure that delivers fast results without injuring the surrounding areas. Results can be noticed after only one treatment.

Recovery

BodyTite does not require an extended downtime, and you should be able to return to work after several days. You will be required to wear compression garments after the procedure, and your doctor will prescribe you painkillers in case you are experiencing any discomfort during your recovery time. Your dressings will usually be changed or removed a day after the procedure, depending on the case.

You will be able to see the results immediately after the procedure, although the best results may be visible 3-6 months after the procedure. The skin will tighten and you will be able to see the desired effects. The procedure is painless so you will not feel any discomfort during your recovery time. Sometimes it can take up to a year to see the full results of the procedure, and follow-ups will be scheduled regularly to track the progress. Your skin may become uneven during the third week which is common.

The results of the BodyTite procedure can be permanent although this greatly depends on your lifestyle. Leading a healthy lifestyle and exercising regularly will prolong the effects of the procedure. Otherwise, the results of the BodyTite procedure are not long-lasting and can be impaired gaining weight and not leading a healthy lifestyle.
