What is BodyTite?

BodyTite is a revolutionary body contouring procedure that uses RFAL (Radio-Frequency Assisted Lipolysis) technology to melt fat and tighten skin simultaneously. Unlike traditional liposuction, BodyTite is minimally invasive, reducing recovery time and minimizing scars. This procedure targets fat cells while promoting collagen production, leading to firmer, more youthful-looking skin.

The BodyTite Procedure

bodytite treatmentBodyTite is typically performed under local anesthesia, though patients treating a larger area or multiple areas may require general anesthesia.

During the BodyTite procedure, radio-frequency waves specifically target excess fat, liquefying it in a manner similar to traditional laser liposuction. This process is key for allowing the fat to be suctioned out effectively. Once liquefied, the fat is removed through a slender tube within the cannula, ensuring a precise and efficient extraction. Simultaneously, this energy boosts the skin’s firmness, encouraging a tighter, more sculpted look. The procedure involves very small incisions to minimize scarring and shorten recovery time.

Following the BodyTite procedure, wearing a compression garment is essential for optimal healing and to reduce swelling. Adherence to detailed post-operative care is critical for achieving the best results.

BodyTite Recovery & Results

Recovery from BodyTite is remarkably swift, with most patients returning to normal activities within days. Mild soreness and swelling may occur but generally subside quickly. Patients are recommended to refrain from mild exercise for at least 5 days after treatment, and should wait a number of weeks before engaging in more strenuous activities.

Results are immediately visible, with continued improvements as new collagen is formed over the following months, culminating in a tighter, more contoured appearance. Most of our patients see pronounced results in terms of both body contouring and skin tightening at 4-12 weeks after treatment, and results continue to progress through the sixth month.

FAQs about BodyTite

Can I treat multiple areas at the same time with BodyTite?

Yes. For patients who have more than one area where loose skin and stubborn fat are a concern, we can treat multiple areas during a single treatment session.

How long does BodyTite treatment take?

The length of treatment depends on the areas treated and the extent of treatment needed to achieve the patient’s goals. Treatment can last from 30 minutes to 3 hours.

How long do BodyTite results last?

BodyTite results are long-lasting, and can be best preserved by maintaining a stable weight, a healthy diet, and regular exercise.
