BodyTite – An Innovative Radiofrequency Assisted Liposuction (RFAL) Option

BodyTite - An Innovative Radiofrequency Assisted Liposuction (RFAL) Option

Many women and men seek to achieve a sleek, well-shaped body to look youthful and attractive for as long as possible. However, despite strenuous exercise and diets, most people find that excess fat deposits in various areas just refuse to budge. Liposuction has been proven the gold standard to get rid of this stubborn fat. However, while conventional liposuction does provide effective fat removal, sagging skin or loose skin would persist. Moreover, liposuction surgery involves general anesthesia, extended downtime, scars, and long recovery. Today, innovative minimally-invasive procedures like BodyTite in NYC which use local anesthesia provide surgical quality results without the added downtime and scars.

An FDA-approved modality, BodyTite utilizes patented RFAL™ (radiofrequency assisted liposuction) technology to address excess fat and provide significant skin tightening effects.  The BodyTite handpiece delivers radiofrequency energy to liquefy subcutaneous fat so that it can be easily removed and also coagulates the blood vessels, and tightens the skin, while leaving the surrounding tissues unharmed. It can provide 40% more skin tightening than traditional liposuction treatment. A young, healthy person with good quality skin is an ideal candidate for RF-assisted fat removal and skin tightening in New York City.

The procedure begins with the plastic surgeon marking the area to be treated. Radiofrequency body sculpting in New York can treat areas such as the abdomen, flanks (waist), love-handles, breasts, thighs, back, arms, and knees.. After the treatment site is numbed using local anesthesia, a tiny incision is created to insert the BodyTite hand piece into the subcutaneous tissue. This device has two probes that work simultaneously. One 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 the ideal shape.

Generally, BodyTite liposuction treats deep fat up to 50 mm, controls heating so that large volume contraction is consistent, avoids over-treatment or under-treatment, and allows focused treatment of all large volume areas. The outcome is a smooth, attractive and natural looking physique. The use of local anesthesia lower risks and promotes faster recovery.

The key benefits of this breakthrough body remodelling procedure are:

  • Minimally invasive
  • Requires only local anesthesia or light sedation
  • Significant fat reduction and body firming
  • Controlled heat generation
  • Visible skin tightening through renewed collagen production
  • Reduced surgical trauma and the risk of any thermal or heat injuries
  • Takes only 30-45 minutes and is virtually painless
  • Short downtime, does not require overnight stay
  • Quick healing and less scarring
  • No lumpy irregularities

Though the procedure offers many benefits, the results are patient specific and completely depend on the treatment area and amount of fat removed. Generally, the initial results can be seen immediately after the procedure, with the best results noticeable after 6-12 weeks. Minor side effects of BodyTite include mild bruising and swelling (due to the cauterizing nature of the procedure), which typically dissipate within the first week. Any discomfort can be managed with the medications prescribed by your plastic surgeon. Most patients usually return to work the next day.

If you are considering BodyTite in NYC, schedule a consultation in an AAAASF-accredited plastic surgery practice that provides the service of plastic surgeons who are experts in this RF-based body contouring procedure. The success of BodyTite liposuction treatment largely depends on having it performed by a well-trained and experienced plastic surgeon.
