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.
