What is BodyTite™?

If you desire a slimmer body contour, consider BodyTite™, an innovative procedure that effectively melts fat and tightens the skin simultaneously. This procedure can help you achieve the desired results for a more sculpted and toned appearance. Schedule a consultation today to explore the benefits of BodyTite™ in Houston.

What are the Benefits of BodyTite™?

The BodyTite™ procedure offers several benefits, including:

– One of the safest FDA-approved procedures.
– Can be performed with local anesthesia.
– Fewer complications compared to plastic surgery using general anesthesia.
– Provides natural-looking results.
– Can treat delicate skin areas without causing tissue damage.
– Long-lasting results, up to five years.
– Procedure typically takes 30-60 minutes.
– Visible results are noticeable immediately, with continued improvements over 3-8 weeks as new collagen forms.
– Minimal downtime, allowing for a faster recovery.

How Does BodyTite™ Work?

BodyTite™ is performed under local anesthesia, ensuring minimal patient discomfort. During the procedure, radiofrequency (RF) energy is passed from the hand-held applicator through an internal electrode placed just beneath the skin. This allows the RF energy to be precisely targeted to the areas that need treatment. As the RF energy heats up the tissue, it triggers the collagen to contract, leading to a tightening and lifting effect on the skin.

The BodyTite™ procedure typically takes about 30 to 60 minutes. While you will notice an improvement in your skin immediately following the treatment, the optimal results are usually seen after 2-6 weeks as the collagen continues to remodel and enhance the overall outcome.

Is BodyTite™ Right for Me?

If you have loose skin or excessive wrinkling, the BodyTite™ procedure may be the ideal solution to address areas of skin laxity, especially if you prefer a non-surgical approach. It can also be a suitable option if you have already undergone surgery and wish to maintain a youthful appearance without additional surgical procedures.

During your initial consultation with the doctor, he will carefully discuss your options and work with you to determine if the BodyTite™ treatment aligns with your medical history and personal aesthetic goals. This personalized approach ensures that you make an informed decision tailored to your specific needs.

What Are the Side Effects of BodyTite™?

Some of the most common side effects of BodyTite™ may include:

– Swelling, especially noticeable on the second day after treatment, which typically subsides within 7-10 days.
– Inflammation, usually resolving on its own within a few days.
– Redness in the treated area.
– Bruising, which is usually temporary and fades over time.
– Mild numbness, often due to bruised nerves, and typically resolves within 3-4 weeks.

It is essential to discuss these potential side effects with your doctor during the consultation to ensure you have a comprehensive understanding of what to expect and how to manage any discomfort during the recovery process.

40% More Skin Tightening

BodyTite™ provides 40% more skin tightening than traditional liposuction procedures, offering numerous benefits to patients. However, the results are individualized and depend on factors such as the treatment area and the amount of fat removed. Minor side effects of BodyTite™ may include mild bruising and swelling, which typically subside within the first week due to the cauterizing nature of the procedure. Any discomfort can be managed with prescribed medications, and most patients can usually return to work the next day. The ability to engage in exercises after the procedure will depend on the specific treatment received, and your plastic surgeon will provide guidance based on your individual case.
