Let Dr. Darren M. Smith help you achieve sculpted perfection through a customized BodyTite treatment plan.
What is BodyTite?
BodyTite is an advanced body contouring treatment that leverages radiofrequency-assisted liposuction (RFAL) for dual fat removal and skin tightening effects. RFAL uses radiofrequency energy to simultaneously liquefy and eliminate stubborn fat cells while stimulating collagen production for noticeably tighter skin.
Some key aspects of the BodyTite procedure include:
- RFAL liquefies and removes fat cells through minimal incisions, reducing trauma compared to traditional liposuction.
- The procedure provides both fat reduction and long-lasting skin contraction. This sets it apart from conventional liposuction which only addresses fat.
- Areas like the abdomen, thighs, arms, and neck can be sculpted through BodyTite’s customizable application of RF energy.
- Recovery is faster than invasive body contouring options since RFAL causes less postoperative swelling and bruising.
By applying precise amounts of radiofrequency thermal energy via an internal cannula, BodyTite melts pockets of fat within the body while simultaneously tightening overlying skin through augmented collagen levels. This advanced non-invasive approach achieves dramatically contoured and toned results.
How does BodyTite work?
BodyTite is one of the world’s most advanced body contouring treatments. The procedure begins with the introduction of a numbing solution (“tumescent fluid”) into the area to be treated through tiny incisions (a few millimeters in length). This tumescent solution includes epinephrine that limits the risk of bleeding and minimizes bruising. A thin wand on an advanced handpiece is then inserted into the incisions previously used to introduce the numbing medicine.
Radiofrequency energy is then transmitted from the wand under the skin to the portion of the handpiece over the skin, and back the other way. This unique bipolar energy application tightens skin by restoring elasticity and stimulating new collagen production.
Fat in the treatment area is melted to allow for easy removal as well. This process delivers a body contouring result superior to liposuction alone in areas with skin laxity.
BodyTite vs. Lipo
Liposuction is a very effective way to remove excess fat, but for those with suboptimal skin tone or loose, saggy skin, liposuction alone is likely not the most effective or appropriate treatment. Before the introduction of BodyTite, major surgery with skin removal was the only way to address skin excess.
BodyTite allows us to achieve tighter, firmer, skin along with a slimmed figure in a single procedure without major surgery or downtime. Liposuction can be performed in conjunction with BodyTite in areas that require both fat removal and skin tightening. For severe skin laxity, traditional skin removal procedures remain the treatment of choice.
Benefits of BodyTite Procedures
BodyTite offers numerous clinical advantages for achieving sculpted, natural-looking results. Through its targeted application of radiofrequency energy, it provides:
- Skin Tightening – RF energy stimulates collagen production for up to 6 months post-procedure. This results in gradual but noticeable skin lifting and contraction that smooths textural flaws.
- Fat Reduction – Stubborn pockets of fat are precisely melted away from multiple body areas. Over time, this seamlessly recontours contours for a balanced, athletic-caliber silhouette.
- Improved Skin Texture – Wrinkles, dimples, and cellulite are visibly diminished thanks to tighter, firmer skin strengthened from the inside out.
- Contoured Body Profile – Saddlebags, love handles, back fat, and bra fat are safely redistributed, forming visibly toned glutes, thighs, and abdominals.
- Enhanced Muscle Toning – With excess fat eliminated, underlying muscle definition is accentuated for a chiseled physique.
- Long-Lasting Results – So long as healthy lifestyle habits continue, results can remain intact for years due to durable collagen remodeling from RF.
- Minimal Pain and Bruising – Small incisions and precise cannula methods produce negligible trauma or swelling versus open surgery methods.
- Natural-Looking Outcomes – Sculpting occurs from within without significant skin excision, ensuring a youthful and proportional appearance.
The BodyTite Procedure
BodyTite is performed in an outpatient setting by our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Darren M. Smith. Patients first undergo a comprehensive consultation where medical history is reviewed and target areas are identified.
On the day of treatment, these areas will be carefully marked while the patient stands to ensure a natural, aligned result. A topical numbing agent is then applied to minimize discomfort.
Next, Dr. Smith will carefully place thin cannulas containing specialized bipolar radiofrequency tips into the subcutaneous fat layers via small incisions. This is achieved using real-time imaging for precision.
The patient will also receive monitored anesthesia throughout to relax the body. This contributes to their comfort and allows them to rest easily during the procedure.
Dr. Smith then uses the BodyTite device to deliver controlled thermal energy via the cannula tips. This gently liquefies fatty deposits, allowing them to be safely removed via cannula ports.
Simultaneously, the fortified heat stimulates robust collagen regeneration in surrounding tissues. Over time, this tightens the skin naturally over sculpted muscles. Areas like flanks, back, thighs, and buttocks can be sculpted seamlessly in one treatment session. Incisions are closed with dissolvable sutures when complete.
Ideal Candidates for BodyTite
The ideal BodyTite candidate has mild to moderate loose skin and excess fat concentrated in problem areas. This includes those who carry pockets of stubborn fat that refuse to budge despite healthy diet and exercise efforts. Individuals seeking skin tightening following weight loss or laxity from aging are also prime candidates.
It’s important candidates are in good overall health and have maintained a stable weight near their ideal body size. While BodyTite yields visible tightening and sculpting, one’s genetics and continued wellness regimen impact long-term results.
Those with realistic expectations for the procedure and a commitment to balanced nutrition and fitness will experience the most satisfying outcomes. While not a weight loss tool itself, BodyTite complements a healthy lifestyle focused on maintaining, not losing, pounds.
Areas of special concern like posterior arms, back rolls, bra, and back fat can be successfully targeted. Individuals tired of these stubborn areas resisting other efforts will find relief through BodyTite’s dual mechanisms of fat removal and skin contraction.
Areas Treatable with BodyTite
BodyTite offers a customizable approach, allowing it to effectively contour various body areas. Common treatment zones include:
|For sculpting a flat, toned midsection.
|To eliminate love handles and back fat bulges.
|For eliminating saddlebags and smoothing cellulite dimples.
|To banish back fat overspill above bra lines.
|Inner and Outer Thighs
|For sculpting a slimmer thigh profile.
|The addition of fullness or reduction creates hourglass curves.
|Upper Back and Chest
|Banishing bra/postural fat build ups males or females dislike.
By combining fat liquefaction with collagen stimulation, BodyTite tightens skin over any muscle group. Compared to alternative procedures, it achieves sculpting through minimal downtime.
Comparison with Other Procedures
Unlike a tummy tuck that involves major abdominal incisions and lengthy recovery, BodyTite tightens skin and reduces fat throughout the abdominal region using only small cannula entry points. This allows patients to return to normal activities much sooner with minimal downtime. BodyTite provides natural-looking contouring as an effective alternative for those who don’t require full excess skin removal.
While breast augmentation surgically enhances size through implants, BodyTite contours the breast and chest area through its non-invasive skin tightening effects. It doesn’t change cup size but refines the appearance of sagging or loose skin over time. For those seeking improved breast definition without surgery or implants, BodyTite is a minimized approach.
Rather than the external incisions and prolonged recovery of inner and outer thigh lifts that remove redundant skin, BodyTite strategically administers energy to dissolve fat pockets and stimulates collagen-fueled skin tightening in the thigh region. This lets patients resume regular routines more quickly while still achieving naturally contoured and toned thighs.
Recovery and Post-Procedure Care
Most patients see remarkable results after BodyTite while enjoying a swift recovery period. The majority can return to work within a week, though each individual heals uniquely. To ensure optimal skin tightening, it’s critical to avoid strenuous activity for two full weeks.
Proper compression garment wear is indispensable. Worn continuously for two weeks, it minimizes swelling and promotes collagen regeneration for beautiful new contours.
Patients should avoid strenuous exercise for at least two weeks after the procedure to promote healing. After this, patients can gradually resume their exercise routine but should avoid high-impact activities for at least four weeks.
As a minimally invasive procedure, BodyTite causes minimal trauma but patients may still experience some discomfort and swelling after the procedure. Pain medication may be prescribed to manage this. It is encouraged to follow Dr. Smith’s post-operative instructions to ensure a smooth and painless recovery.
