Are you looking to shape up before summer and get your body beach ready? Then consider BodyTite liposuction surgery. Many people work out strenuously and follow a strict diet to attain a sleek, well-shaped body. But most often, excess fat refuses to budge even with these measures. Conventional liposuction surgery can remove fat effectively, but it involves general anesthesia, extended downtime, scars, long recovery, and leaves behind loose skin. BodyTite liposuction surgery is a a minimally-invasive procedure that overcomes these challenges and provides attractive, natural looking body contouring results.
BodyTite is an ideal option to trim areas of diet- and exercise-resistant fat and to add curves where they’re lacking. BodyTite liposuction can treat various areas such as the abdomen, flanks, waist, love handle, breasts, thighs, arms and knees. The FDA-approved BodyTite device utilizes patented RFAL™ (radiofrequency assisted liposuction) technology to address excess fat and provide significant skin tightening effects. It delivers RF energy to liquefy the subcutaneous fat so that it can be easily removed. It also coagulates the blood vessels and tightens the skin, while leaving the surrounding tissues unharmed.
BodyTite liposuction begins surgeon marking the area to be treated and numbing it using local anesthesia. Once the area is numb, a tiny incision is created to insert the BodyTite handpiece into the subcutaneous tissue. The device has two probes that work simultaneously. The first probe works beneath the skin, heating the entire soft-tissue matrix and melting the fat via the temperature controlled RF technology. The second probe simultaneously aspirates the liquefied fat and coagulates the adipose, fibrous, and vascular tissue. The heat generated tightens the skin quickly and coagulates the tissues, allowing the plastic surgeon to sculpt the body to an ideal shape. Other major benefits of the procedure are as follows:
- Minimally invasive
- Requires only local anesthesia or light sedation
- Significant fat reduction and body firming
- No lumpy irregularities
- Quick healing and less scarring
- Reduced surgical trauma
- Controlled heat generation eliminates risk of thermal injuries
- Short downtime (does not require overnight stay)
- Takes only 30-45 minutes and is virtually painless
- Visible skin tightening effects with renewed collagen production
However, BodyTite liposuction will work only for the right candidate. An ideal candidate is a healthy person with troublesome areas of excess fat and skin – that they would like to get corrected. Good candidates would also have moderate skin laxity and good skin tone, be within 30% of their ideal weight, and not smoke. It is also important to have realistic expectations about the outcome.
Though the procedure is minimally-invasive, minor side effects like mild bruising and swelling (due to the cauterizing nature of the procedure) are quite common, which will typically resolve in few days. Moreover any pain or discomfort can be managed by taking the prescribed medications.
initial results are usually seen immediately after the procedure, with the best results noticeable after 6-12 weeks. Final results are patient specific and depend on the specific area treated and the amount of fat removed.
