BodyTite

BodyTite is a body contouring procedure that melts away excess fat cells and tightens the skin tissues without surgery. The surgeon makes a small incision to insert the BodyTite device into the targeted area with excess fat cells. The BodyTite device liquefies and suctions away the excess fat cells, following which the remaining skin is tightened. This procedure helps you achieve a firm, taut, and contoured body without excess fat deposits and minimal skin laxity.

BodyTite Treatment Areas:

  • Neck
  • Décolletage
  • Arms
  • Breasts
  • Back
  • Tummy
  • Thighs
  • Knees
  • Other areas with excess fat

BodyTite Corrects the Following:

  • Excess fat cells in targeted body parts
  • Stubborn pockets of subcutaneous fat cells
  • Excess, sagging skin tissues
  • Loss of skin elasticity
  • Minimal muscle definition

How BodyTite Works

BodyTite works on the principles of radiofrequency-assisted lipolysis (RFAL). The BodyTite delivers controlled heat to melt the subcutaneous fat cells, following which a cannula is used to suction them away from the body. The BodyTite device also delivers radiofrequency waves into the deep dermis, which stimulates natural collagen production to tighten the skin tissues. Collagen is a structural protein that makes your skin look firm, taut, and youthful. BodyTite restores your body’s depleting collagen reserves to tighten your skin, making it look firm.

Benefits of BodyTite:

  • Minimally invasive skin tightening procedure
  • Removes excess fat and tightens skin simultaneously
  • Improves the visibility of muscle definition
  • Completely natural-looking results
  • Stimulates natural collagen production
  • No harsh side effects or complications
  • Minimal post-treatment downtime

Your BodyTite Experience

BodyTite is a highly personalized surgical procedure performed after a thorough evaluation. The medical provider carefully examines your body, identifies the regions with stubborn fat, measures the degree of skin laxity, and reviews your medical history. The medical provider will discuss your goals and curate a personalized treatment plan. You will be kept in the loop throughout the treatment planning process so you know what to expect.

During the BodyTite treatment, the surgeon makes a small incision on the targeted treatment area. The surgeon inserts a hollow needle (cannula) through the incision and delivers an anesthetic fluid. He also inserts the BodyTite device, with one prong above and the other below the skin. Upon activating the device, heat flows between the two prongs to melt the excess fat cells, which are suctioned away via liposuction.

After suctioning away the liquefied fat cells, the surgeon delivers focused radiofrequency energy into the deep dermis. The surgeon controls the degree of radiofrequency energy used, which stimulates collagen production to make your skin contract and shrink. Over time, as new fibrous proteins are formed, your skin will look smoother and tighter. The procedure concludes within an hour, following which you can return home.

Recovery After BodyTite

You can expect mild swelling, tenderness, and bruising around the treatment areas for a few days. You can resume your work and daily activities within a day or two, but strenuous workouts should be avoided for a week or more. The fat reduction results are immediately visible, but the skin tightening results will appear gradually over several weeks as your body produces new collagen fibers. You can expect up to 45% skin tightening within a year.
