Who Is An Ideal Candidate For BodyTite Saddle Bags Liposuction?

Saddlebags can make your lower body look disproportionate and bulky. Rolls of stubborn fat get stored in the hips and outer thighs due to genetics, hormone and aging. These unwanted fat pockets can be very frustrating especially in women who are otherwise blessed with good shape, making them look awkward in summer clothes and swimsuits. This fat is usually resistant to even rigorous diet and exercise and if not addressed early, can become worse over time as you age and your metabolism starts to slow. Fortunately, BodyTite saddle bags liposuction in New York is an ideal option to address the concern. The procedure improves the shape and proportions of the lower body effectively, leaving you with a well-shaped and proportionate silhouette.

Though conventional liposuction can address saddle bags, it involves general anesthesia, invasive surgery and long incisions. Minimally-invasive liposuction with BodyTite eliminates excess fat deposits without surgery and long incisions. Minimally invasive BodyTite in NYC utilizes patented RFAL™ (radiofrequency assisted liposuction) technology to address excess fat and provide significant skin tightening effects, while leaving the surrounding tissues unharmed.

BodyTite™ liposuction addresses unwanted stubborn fat pockets and loose skin in one innovative procedure. In the BodyTite handpiece, RFAL energy is deployed from an internal cannula to an external electrode, resulting in the delivery of focused energy into the adipose tissue and fatty areas. The device targets the initial skin layer as well as the body’s underlying tissues to achieve significant skin contraction. With the controlled, focused delivery of radiofrequency energy, the fat cells are liquefied, allowing them to be removed by aspiration while leaving the surrounding tissues unaffected.

The FDA-approved BodyTite device also prevents overheating of the skin and allows the plastic surgeon to effectively treat areas with large volume and deep fat up to 50 mm. The use of local anesthesia lower risks and promotes faster recovery, and moreover, the outcome is a smooth, attractive and natural looking physique.
