BodyTite is the latest minimally-invasive body contouring procedure delivering results previously only achieved through more excisional surgical procedures. BodyTite is powered by directional RF resulting in three-dimensional tissue remodeling through the fat coagulation and volumetric heating. The coagulation of fat using RF- induced heat results in radio-frequency assisted lipolysis (RFAL). Patients today want to avoid surgery when possible. With BodyTite technology, we can reduce fat without leaving behind saggy, wrinkly skin. You will be left with surgical-like results with no large incisional scars, less downtime and long-lasting, beautiful results.
Dr. Patel will mark the treatment regions. BodyTite and liposuction are accomplished under local anesthesia in our surgical facility on premise. The procedure duration varies depending on an individual’s unique requirements, and ranges from 30 minutes to 3 hours. The procedure is performed using tiny access sites using an IV needle. Tumescent solution is introduced into the treatment areas, and the excess fatty tissues and skin are treated with BodyTite. Once temperature controlled thermal levels are achieved, liposuction follows. Liposuction cannulas are used to further remove excess fat and any excess fluid.
BodyTite and liposuction are same day procedures. Patients will relax in our recovery room for about an hour post procedure. A compression garment will be worn home and for the following 2-4 weeks. Most patients will return to work and normal day to day functions in as little as 2-3 days, but more extensive treatments can take up to 10 days.
