As we age, it is common to see loose skin or areas of fat accumulation that is resistant to diet and exercise. Even after weeks or months of dieting and spot training, your body contour might not meet your expectations.
If you are looking for a confidence-boosting body contouring process, BodyTite and liposuction in Parker County will help address your cosmetic concerns. Schedule an appointment in our office to discuss details with our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Matthew Steele.
BodyTite and liposuction can both assist in tightening loose skin and decreasing fat tissue. Liposuction is a cosmetic surgical process that uses a suction cannula to remove fat deposits from areas such as the abdomen, thighs, hips, chest, arms, or neck. It will help shape the target areas but is not a weight loss method or alternative. The right candidates will have achieved their desired body weight before choosing this procedure.
The BodyTite process uses radio frequency (RF) energy to apply heat and liquefy fat from targeted problem areas, while also tightening the skin and stimulating collagen formation at the same time. Although it can be used as a separate non-surgical treatment, Dr. Steele combines it with liposuction to enhance the results even further.
For patients who want to reduce fat, liposuction alone may be sufficient to meet their aesthetic goals. However, after the removal of underlying fat, there is potential for loose and sagging skin. Pairing it with BodyTite in Parker County helps decrease the risk of postoperative skin laxity.
During your initial consultation, Dr. Steele will ask about your medical history and specific cosmetic concerns. Those who are good candidates for BodyTite in Parker County will have realistic expectations of the final result.
Those who wish to use BodyTite will do so in combination with surgical liposuction, so they need to be healthy enough for surgery. Ideal candidates for BodyTite will have achieved their goal weight and do not expect the process to add to their weight loss. Gaining or losing weight after the procedure can alter the results significantly.
BodyTite and liposuction are performed under local anesthesia in Dr. Steele’s office. Full activity can be resumed after 3 weeks, and time off from work is typically just a few days. Dr. Steele will put you in a compression garment postoperatively to help optimize your contour and reduce your swelling. Postoperative numbness and swelling are temporary, and patients should see resolution in 3-6 months.
Procedures like BodyTite can help fine-tune your new body contours and help you look and feel refreshed and youthful. Dr. Steele will customize the treatment to meet your aesthetic goals and help you feel more attractive and confident.
BodyTite in Parker County is used in combination with liposuction, which will require surgical aftercare but produce long-lasting results. Schedule your consultation and meet with Dr. Steele to further discuss how this treatment will benefit you.
