Most people have both loose skin and areas of excess fat on their body that they’d love to fix without an invasive body lift and surgical liposuction. BodyTite is an innovative, minimally invasive liposuction treatment, which also tightens your skin with minimal recovery time. The radiofrequency-assisted liposuction (RFAL) in BodyTite allows plastic surgeon Dr. Edward Lee to efficiently help his patients in Houston, TX enhance their body shape. BodyTite is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to safely eliminate fat and improve skin laxity without any scars for fast results. Schedule an appointment at Nuveau Plastic Surgery to find out more about BodyTite in Houston, Tx, as well as other treatment choices for fat removal and sagging skin.
At Nuveau Plastic Surgery, Dr. Lee and his team also provide AccuTite to target small, precise areas of the body. As a separate handpiece utilized on the same BodyTite technology, AccuTite is the smallest, minimally invasive radiofrequency device and is great for targeting delicate areas. Within your consultation, Dr. Lee will determine if BodyTite, AccuTite, or a combination of the two is ideal for your specific needs and concerns.
Ideal Candidates For Bodytite™
BodyTite can be helpful if you would like to see better skin tightness and contours in one or multiple regions of your body. You might be a candidate for BodyTite if you would like to get rid of pockets of fat and also improve the overall look of sagging, wrinkled skin. You might have thought about traditional liposuction or body lift surgery but would prefer to minimize surgical scarring and recovery time. Many areas of the body may be treated with BodyTite, but a few of the common areas patients would like help with are the stomach, chest, arms, thighs, and knees. In your consultation, Dr. Lee will pay attention to your needs and goals before helping you decide if BodyTite is right for you.
The BodyTite procedure is generally performed with local anesthesia; however, general anesthesia may be used if you’re nervous or having several areas treated. The advanced BodyTite applicator is inserted through very small incisions in your skin. BodyTite has an internal and external thermometer to protect you from burns. The applicator will loosen and liquefy the fat using radiofrequency waves so the fat is easily suctioned from your body. The heat used during the fat elimination will tighten your connective tissue and skin for instant improvements. BodyTite therapies generally take around 30 – 45 minutes for each area. Several treatments may be needed or suggested by Dr. Lee to provide your best results.
What To Expect After Bodytite™
You’ll have to recover at home for 5 – 10 days after your BodyTite procedure. A compression garment should be worn over the treated areas to encourage healing while also holding your new contours. Some results may be seen immediately; however, your final results will not be apparent for 3 – 6 months when the inflammation and swelling subside. While the fat that’s removed can’t return, the remaining fat can become larger if you gain weight so it’s very important to keep a healthy, steady weight following your BodyTite procedure.
