BodyTite™ contours, tightens and defines areas with excess fat such as the hips, abdomen, buttocks, arms, thighs, knees and neck. BodyTite™ uses non-surgical radio frequency assisted liposuction and is an effective and easy way to firm the skin and and remove excess fat.
Candidates for Bodytite™
BodyTite™ is the perfect procedure for Houston and Lake Jackson patients busy patients with moderate skin laxity because the downtime is less than with a tummy tuck or brachioplasty. Similar to liposuction, BodyTite™ works better for patients who have mild to moderate skin laxity and who are not overweight. Patients who want to undergo this procedure should have a healthy lifestyle to maintain the results.
During the procedure, thermal energy is emitted through a cannula onto a tiny incision made on the treatment area. The heat makes the skin shrink and removes fat cells. To help patients avoid pain, a local anesthetic is applied to the treatment area. Patients will see a continuos improvement over the following several weeks and will feel the difference immediately after the procedure. Patients will be able to see the final results after several months, but the procedure does not require touch-up procedures. To get better volume reduction, the procedure is sometimes combined with liposuction.
BodyTite™ is minimally invasive, but you might experience some redness, swelling, soreness and uneven skin after the treatment. These symptoms should reduce within 1-2 weeks. Although the results of BodyTite™ are permanent, we recommend that you maintain a healthy lifestyle to prevent future weight gain.
