Even with a healthy diet and regular exercise regimen, both men and women can be left with stubborn fat deposits and areas of loose skin due to aging, genetics, sun damage, or weight loss. Traditional procedures such as a Tummy Tuck or Brachioplasty (Arm Lift) can be successful at reshaping and tightening the skin, however, not everyone is ready to commit to such invasive procedures. And now with BodyTite, not everyone needs these procedures for surgical-like results. BodyTite is a ground-breaking new technology that allows for near surgical results, with small incisions and minimal downtime.
Benefits of BodyTite
BodyTite uses innovative technology to apply radiofrequency energy waves internally and externally. The external tissue heating causes dermal tightening and contraction, resulting in improved skin contour and tightness. The internal tissue heating results in lipolysis (busting of fat cells) and tightening of the underlying collagen network. The ruptured fat is then removed with liposuction. As a result of this combination, you are left with improved body contour with tighter skin and only a few small incisions instead of traditional longer scars. BodyTite provides effective body contouring and skin tightening for the following areas:
– Waist and flanks (love handles)
– Inner/Outer thighs and knees
– Male breasts
– Upper Arms
– Neck/Jowls (FaceTite)
BodyTite is typically combined with Liposuction (hyperlink to lipo page) for optimal contouring and is performed in the office using local anesthesia with mild sedation (Valium and Nitrous Oxide, laughing gas). Through small incisions, Dr. Steele will place tumescent solution containing salt water and lidocaine/epinephrine into the areas to be treated. The tumescent solution provides turgor (firmness) to the tissues, lidocaine provides pain relief, and the epinephrine (adrenaline) shrinks the blood vessels to minimize bleeding. Once the tissues are numb, Dr. Steele uses the BodyTite handpiece to heat the tissues to a predetermined temperature that is optimal for melting fat and tightening the tissues, while minimizing risk of skin burns. After all of the areas have been treated with the radiofrequency energy, Dr. Steele will remove the excess fat using power assisted liposuction (PAL).
