You may have a goal of staying toned and trim throughout your lifetime but have come to realize that achieving that goal may be more challenging than you’d imagined. We call it stubborn fat for a reason! Those frustrating areas of the body that bulge and ripple may simply be designed by your DNA to hold on to extra fat, regardless of your generally healthy lifestyle. This is one of the reasons that liposuction is such a common procedure. Now, here at Azul Cosmetic Surgery and Med Spa, we have another option, BodyTite™.
BodyTite™ is a gentle, safe, effective form of body contouring that we’re proud to offer! If you are tired of struggling to eliminate problematic pockets of fatty tissue, give us a call at (239) 379-8927 to learn more about BodyTite™.
What is BodyTite™?
Body contouring has been taken to a new level with the development of the BodyTite™ device. This minimally-invasive treatment uses patented RFAL™ technology to slim and sculpt various parts of the body. RFAL includes radiofrequency energy, a type of thermal energy that liquefies subcutaneous fatty tissue for easier removal using liposuction. This energy also simultaneously tightens the skin and coagulates blood vessels, making it gentler than conventional liposuction.
How Does BodyTite™ Work?
During the BodyTite procedure, a tiny incision is made in the area of focus. The doctor then inserts the BodyTite handpiece, a small cannula, through which they deliver radiofrequency energy. This energy permeates the superficial layer of fat with ease because it passes from the internal cannula to an external electrode. This focuses energy between the two aspects of the handpiece, quickly melting unwanted fat while also heating the deeper layers of the skin for a profound tightening effect. The liquefied fat is immediately aspirated through the cannula.
What Areas can be Treated with BodyTite™?
It’s possible to have BodyTite performed on large or small areas of the body. Some of the common treatment areas include:
- Love handles
- Upper arms
- Saddle bags
- Inner or outer thighs
Depending on your needs, you can arrange to have BodyTite performed on multiple areas in one visit. Each area may take about 15 minutes.
What Kind of Anesthesia is Used for BodyTite™?
Due to the nature of the BodyTite procedure, it can be performed using local anesthesia. This eliminates the risks associated with general anesthesia and can also reduce your immediate recovery time. At Azul Cosmetic Surgery and Med Spa, we offer ProNox, a self-administered sedative (nitrous oxide) to help support your most comfortable, stress-free experience.
Who is an Ideal Candidate for BodyTite™?
You may be a good candidate for the BodyTite procedure if you’re generally healthy and close to your best body weight or BMI. BodyTite is not designed for significant fat removal. It may not compare to conventional liposuction in terms of the volume of fat that can be aspirated. However, BodyTite is known for its dramatic results! These stem from the combination of fat reduction and skin tightening.
