If you are looking for an effective nonsurgical skin tightening procedure, BodyTite liposuction may be the right option. The procedure is performed using the FDA-approved BodyTite modality which utilizes patented RFAL™ (radiofrequency assisted liposuction) technology to address excess fat and tighten the skin. Despite rigorous exercise and diets, many people find that excess fat deposits in various areas just refuse to budge. BodyTite in NYC allows plastic surgeons to help patients address the concern and achieve attractive, natural looking body contouring results – without surgery or lengthy downtime.
Liposuction is the gold standard to get rid of stubborn fat. But conventional liposuction involves general anesthesia, extended downtime, scars, and long recovery, making people hesitate to go ahead with the treatment. Fortunately, innovative minimally-invasive procedures like BodyTite need only local anesthesia and provide surgical quality results without the added downtime and scars.
The BodyTite handpiece delivers radiofrequency energy to liquefy subcutaneous fat so that it can be easily removed, coagulates the blood vessels, and tightens the skin, while leaving the surrounding tissues unharmed. One of the major benefits of BodyTite liposuction is its skin tightening properties. The procedure can provide 40% more skin tightening than traditional liposuction treatment.
But can anyone have BodyTite? No, even though the procedure is minimally-invasive, only ideal candidates can benefit from this RF-assisted liposuction treatment. Generally, BodyTite is an ideal option for a healthy person with unwanted fat deposits but good quality skin.
After determining that you are a suitable candidate for the treatment, your NYC plastic surgeon will begin the procedure by marking the area to be treated. The procedure can treat areas such as the abdomen, flanks (waist), love-handles, breasts, thighs, back, arms, and knees. Once the treatment site is marked, it will be numbed using local anesthesia. A tiny incision will be then made to insert the BodyTite handpiece into the subcutaneous tissue. This device has two probes that work simultaneously: the first one works beneath the skin, heating the entire soft-tissue matrix and melting the fat via the temperature controlled RF technology. The second probe simultaneously aspirates the liquefied fat and coagulates the adipose, fibrous, and vascular tissue.
The heat generated by the device helps to tighten the skin quickly and coagulates the tissues, allowing the plastic surgeon to sculpt the body to the ideal shape. BodyTite is designed to treat deep fat up to 50 mm, control heating so that large volume contraction is consistent, avoid over-treatment or under-treatment, and allow focused treatment of all large volume areas.
Generally, the initial results of BodyTite in NYC are seen immediately after the procedure, with the best results noticeable after 6-12 weeks. Minor side effects of BodyTite include mild bruising and swelling (due to the cauterizing nature of the procedure), which typically dissipate within the first week. Taking the medications prescribed by your plastic surgeon can help ease any discomfort. Most patients return to work the next day.
The results of the procedure are long-lasting. However, the quality and duration of results would be impacted by individual considerations. Results would depend on the treatment area, amount of fat removed and importantly, how you maintain your body following the treatment. The outcome of your body contouring procedure would last as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle with a proper diet and exercise routine. This is crucial to prevent new deposits of fat from forming.
