If you have undesirable body fat that won’t go away with diet and exercise, BodyTite may be the right procedure for you.

While there are many procedures that can get rid of unwanted fat on the body, a lot of them are invasive and involve surgery. BodyTite is a good option for those who do not want to go under the knife but are looking to remove fat and reshape their body.

What Is BodyTite?

BodyTite is a minimally invasive non-surgical procedure that was approved by the FDA in 2016. It involves the use of radio frequency energy to dissolve fat beneath the skin, making it easier for a cannula to suction out fat. This process is also referred to as Radio Frequency Assisted Liposuction (RFAL).

BodyTite also tightens the skin in the targeted areas where fat loss is desired. It can dramatically reduce saggy skin and is more effective than traditional liposuction.

What Are the Benefits?

In comparison to traditional liposuction and other invasive procedures, BodyTite has a plethora of benefits:
• Typically, this procedure takes thirty to sixty minutes to complete, making it a short outpatient procedure.
• It is minimally invasive and does not leave marks on the skin.
• The recovery period is much shorter than traditional liposuction surgery.

How Does BodyTite Work?

Before getting a BodyTite procedure done, a local anesthetic will be administered to the targeted areas. Tiny incisions will be made to the marked areas, then two probe-like instruments will be used simultaneously once the procedure is underway.

The first probe heats up the fat under the skin and melts it using temperature-controlled radio frequency technology. As the fat turns to liquid, a second probe – a cannula – suctions out the liquified fat and tightens the skin. With a BodyTite procedure, Dr. Steele can sculpt your body to a desirable shape.

Downtime After BodyTite

Because BodyTite is a minimally invasive procedure, you may be able to return to your normal daily routine a few days after treatment. However, it is important to refrain from doing any strenuous activities for two weeks after your procedure. Talk to Dr. Steele about when you can resume exercising and/or more strenuous activities.

You may also be given compression garments after your treatment in order to alleviate swelling from the areas. It is important that you follow all aftercare instructions given to you by Dr. Steele.

When Will You See Results?

After receiving a BodyTite treatment, you will see immediate results when it comes to fat reduction, skin tightening, and overall firmness of the targeted areas of the body.

Results will get better with time, and you should be able to see full results in six to twelve weeks after your procedure. Your skin will also continue to tighten over the next three to six months.
