How Does BodyTite Work?
With BodyTite, liposuction and skin tightening are made possible by utilizing RFAL (radio-frequency assisted lipolysis) and delivering three-dimensional tissue remodeling through fat coagulation and volumetric heating. By combining radio-frequency technology and liposuction, BodyTite suctions away fat while melting existing fat tissues to achieve a smoother, tighter appearance.
What Can I Expect?
It is required that all patients come into our facilities for their free consultation as this gives us an opportunity to assess your current state and ideal results. We encourage patients to take advantage of this opportunity to discuss any concerns or ask any questions they may have in regards to the BodyTite procedure.
Once the treatment area has been marked and mapped out, local anesthesia will be administered. Once numb, the fatty tissues and skin are treated with RFAL via I.V. needle. Once the controlled thermal levels are reached, liposuction begins, working to suction out excess fat and fluid via thin, liposuction cannulas.
Treatment time vares on the patient and the area(s) to be treated, ranging anywhere from 30 minutes to 4 hours.
What Is The Downtime?
Immediately following your treatment, you may be advised to stay in recovery for up to one hour. It is strongly advised to find someone that can transport your to and from our facilities. You will be given compression garments to wear for up to 2 weeks. These may be swapped out for spanx in the following 3-4 weeks.
Some patients may return to work 2 days, post-procedure. However, some individuals that have larger or multiple target areas treated may require up to 1 week of downtime for proper healing.
When Will I See Results?
It’s important to remember that all individual results vary patient to patient.
Reduction results are visible 4-12 weeks post-treatment while skin tightening results can take anywhere between 3-6 months to become visible.
What Are The Side Effects?
Swelling in the treated areas is expected and will steadily resolve on its own over the course of 8-10 weeks.
Additional side effects include:
- temporarily uneven skin tone
More severe, uncommon side effects include:
- seromas (pockets of fluid)
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Majority of patients see dramatic results from one Bodytite treatment. Although rare, some patients may need a second Bodytite procedure to achieve ideal results.
How Much Does BodyTite Cost?
With BodyTite, cost of treatment can range anywhere between $4,000-$16,000 depending on facilities, doctor, location and treatment areas.
