Stubborn abdominal fat is a common aesthetic concern among both men and women. Fortunately, BodyTite abdomen liposuction in Manhattan is an ideal option to resolve the issue. The treatment utilizes patented radiofrequency-assisted liposuction (RFAL) technology to remove stubborn fat and tighten sagging abdomen skin, resulting in a trimmer, attractive midsection. One question that most patients ask their plastic surgeon is when they can resume their regular activities after the procedure.
Most patients can normally start with light walking the day after their minimally-invasive BodyTite abdomen treatment. Unlike conventional liposuction that involves surgery, general anesthesia and longer recovery time, patients who have BodyTite abdomen liposuction can do light stretching within a week post-op, and perform 1/4 to 1/2 intensity workouts in the several weeks thereafter.
Though the procedure is minimally-invasive, slight swelling and bruising should be expected during the recovery period. Heavy exercises are not recommended, but once the tenderness and swelling begins to subside, patients can resume their normal workout.
BodyTite is a minimally-invasive FDA-cleared device that uses RFAL™ technology to reshape and tighten different areas of the body without visible scars or prolonged downtime. The procedure starts with the surgeon administering local anesthesia to numb the targeted site. A tiny incision will be made to insert the BodyTite handpiece 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 handpiece simultaneously aspirates the liquefied fat and coagulates the tissue. The RF energy also stimulates collagen production and tightens the skin without harming the surrounding tissues.
After the BodyTite abdomen lipo, patients are required to follow post-operative care instructions which include not smoking, avoiding heavy exercises, wearing the compression garment for the recommended period of time and so on, to promote smooth healing and recovery.
The results of the procedure are patient specific and depending on the amount of fat removed and other individual considerations. Initial results are usually visible immediately after the procedure, with the best results noticeable after 6-12 weeks. However, this may vary for larger areas, as such areas will require longer recovery time.
