BodyTite - Ideal Candidates
A treatment with BodyTite may be helpful if you would like to see improved skin tightness and contours in one or several regions of your body. You might be a candidate for BodyTite if you would like to get rid of stubborn pockets of fat and also enhance the appearance of sagging or wrinkled skin. You might have thought about body lift surgery or traditional liposuction but would rather minimize surgical scarring and recovery time. Many regions of the body may be treated with BodyTite; however, patients most commonly desire help with their arms, stomach, chest, thighs, and knees. During your initial consultation, Dr. Lou will pay attention to your needs and goals before helping you determine if BodyTite is best for you.
BodyTite - Surgical Technique
The BodyTite procedure is generally performed with the help of local anesthesia; however, general anesthesia can be used if you're nervous or getting multiple areas treated. The special BodyTite applicator is inserted via three millimeter incisions in your skin. The applicator has an external and internal thermometer to guard you from burns. Dr. Lou will use the applicator to liquefy and loosen the fat using radiofrequency waves so that the fat is easily removed from your body. The heat used throughout the fat elimination will tighten your connective tissue and skin for immediate improvements. BodyTite therapies usually take around 30 – 45 minutes for each area. Several treatments might be required or suggested by Dr. Lou to provide your best outcomes.
BodyTite - What to Expect
You'll have to recover for 5 – 10 days following your BodyTite procedure. A compression garment needs to be worn on the treated areas to encourage healing while also holding your new body contours. Some outcomes will be visible instantly; however, your final results won't be apparent for several months when the inflammation and swelling are gone. Even though the fat that's removed can't grow back, the remaining fat cells may become larger if you gain weight; therefore, it's important to keep a healthy, steady weight following your BodyTite procedure.
How much does BodyTite cost?
The cost of your BodyTite procedure will depend on the number of areas being addressed. During your initial consultation, Dr. Lou can go over all your needs and concerns to determine your custom treatment plan. Once your treatment is developed, he can go over all your estimated costs.
BodyTite is ideal for men and women who wish to avoid lengthy recovery times, large surgical scars, and high costs of cosmetic surgery. Although BodyTite produces stunning results, traditional lift procedures, such as tummy tucks, arm lifts, and thigh lifts, are the most effective method for addressing loose or excess skin. In addition, liposuction is the most sufficient way to rid unsightly pockets of fat. During your assessment, Dr. Lou can discuss the benefits of both and which one is best for you.
What is radiofrequency?
Radiofrequency (RF) is an advanced energy that uses electrical currents to create controlled heat. This heat is then used to target and eliminate fat cells without disrupting the surrounding healthy tissue. It also helps promote collagen and elastin for tighter, healthier skin.
Is it safe?
Yes, as an FDA-approved treatment, BodyTite is a safe cosmetic procedure and is popular with both women and men. The procedure itself is very gentle and most patients are able to return to light activities soon after treatment. More strenuous activities can be resumed in 5 – 10 days, but this can vary.
