Who is a good candidate for BodyTite abdomen liposuction?

A healthy person with troublesome areas of excess fat and skin (that they would like to get corrected) is considered a good candidate for the BodyTite abdomen liposuction. It’s important that you have moderate skin laxity and be within 30 percent of your ideal weight.

The following people are not considered good candidates for this procedure –

  • Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Those with skin diseases and/or infections
  • People with autoimmune diseases
  • Anyone with allergies to certain local anesthetics

What does the BodyTite procedure involve?

The procedure starts with the surgeon administering local anesthesia. A tiny incision will be made to the abdomen area to insert the BodyTite hand piece into the subcutaneous tissue. RFAL energy is passed from an internal cannula to an external electrode, delivering focused energy into the adipose tissue to melt the fat. The hand piece simultaneously aspirates the liquefied fat and coagulates the tissue. The RF energy also stimulates collagen production and tightens the skin.

When will results be visible?

Results are patient specific and depend on the treatment area and amount of fat removed. Generally, larger areas will require a longer recovery time. Initial results are usually visible immediately after the procedure, with the best results noticeable after 6–12 weeks.

When can a patient resume normal physical activities?

Patients can normally start with light walking the next day, doing light stretching within a week, and performing 1/4 to 1/2 intensity workouts in the several weeks thereafter. Once the tenderness and swelling begins to subside, they can resume their normal workouts.
