Stubborn fat deposits in the inner and outer thighs is linked to weight gain, genetics and hormones and most women find it difficult to address this concern with just diet and exercise. BodyTite liposuction is a perfect option to eliminate the excess fat deposited on the upper inner thigh areas. Though traditional liposuction can slim and contour the thighs, it involves invasive surgery and larger incisions under general anesthesia. An FDA-approved modality, BodyTite in NYC utilizes minimally-invasive patented RFAL™ (radiofrequency assisted liposuction) technology to address excess fat and provide significant skin tightening effects, while leaving the surrounding tissues unharmed.
Generally, an ideal candidate for BodyTite on inner thighs is a healthy person with troublesome areas of excess fat and skin that they would like to get corrected. The best candidates need to have moderate skin laxity and are within 30% of their ideal weight.
BodyTite™ liposuction in the inner thighs addresses two common cosmetic concerns in one innovative procedure – unwanted fat pockets and loose skin. It uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to liquefy the fat cells and remove them from the body. The BodyTite™ device targets the initial skin layer, as well as your body’s underlying tissues to achieve significant skin contraction. It can also help stimulate the production of new collagen to reinforce skin structure for long-lasting results. In short, the body sculpting and skin tightening abilities of BodyTite™ can provide a toned, attractive appearance. The benefits of the procedure include –
- Smoother skin and a more refined tone to the upper legs
- Visible skin tightening through renewed collagen production
- Takes only 30-45 minutes and is virtually painless
- Short downtime, does not require overnight stay
- Requires only local anesthesia or light sedation
- Quick healing and less scarring
- No lumpy irregularities
- Minimally-invasive procedure
- Minimal surgical trauma
- Controlled heat generation
The plastic surgeon begins the procedure by making the area in the inner thighs to be treated and then administering local anesthesia to numb it. The BodyTite electrode is placed on the surface of your skin and a small 1-2 millimeter incision is made. A tiny cannula is then introduced underneath the skin. Once placed in position, the electrode and cannula work together to deploy RF energy to underlying fat cells and subsurface tissues. The controlled, focused delivery of radiofrequency (RF) energy breaks down and liquefies the fat cells, allowing them to be gently suctioned out, while leaving the surrounding tissues unaffected. Patients are advised to wear a compression garment, which will help in faster healing. Minor bruising, swelling and redness is common, but can be easily managed with the prescribed pain medication.
