Excess belly fat is a common concern for most men and women. Aging, genetics, hormonal imbalances, pregnancy (in women) and weight gain are the main factors responsible for fat accumulation in the abdomen. This excess fat is difficult to get rid of with even stringent diets and rigorous workouts. BodyTite in NYC can help address this common aesthetic concern. The procedure utilizes patented radiofrequency-assisted liposuction (RFAL) technology to remove stubborn fat, tighten sagging skin and provide a slim, attractive physique. The procedure also encourages the production of new collagen and improves the skin’s texture.
How does BodyTite work?
A minimally-invasive cosmetic surgical procedure, BodyTite removes stubborn fat efficiently and provides noticeable skin tightening effects. An FDA-cleared device, BodyTite utilizes patented RFAL™ (radiofrequency assisted liposuction) technology to reshape and tighten different areas of the body without the visible scars and prolonged downtime (associated with traditional liposuction procedure). It also coagulates the blood vessels, and tightens the skin, while leaving the surrounding tissues unharmed.
The plastic surgeon begins the procedure by 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.
Results of the procedure 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 can be visible immediately after the procedure, with the best results noticeable after 6–12 weeks.
Most patients get back to their exercise regimen within two to three weeks after undergoing the procedure. Light walking can be started the next day, light stretching within a week, and 1/4 to 1/2 intensity workouts in the weeks thereafter. Once the tenderness and swelling subside, patients can resume their normal workout regimen.
Generally, a healthy person with troublesome areas of excess fat and skin (that they would like to get corrected) is an ideal candidate for the BodyTite abdomen liposuction. Candidates must have moderate skin laxity and must be within 30 percent of their ideal weight.
