What is The BodyTite Procedure?
If you’re looking for a minimally invasive body contouring procedure, you might want to consider BodyTite. BodyTite is a system that can help you achieve results that were previously only possible through excisional procedures. The procedure uses radiofrequency to tighten loose tissues and skin, resulting in three-dimensional tissue remodeling. The coagulation of fat using RF-induced heat results in radiofrequency assisted lipolysis (RFAL) – killing fat at the same time as it tightens the fibers in between and around the fat cells. Unlike other RF devices, BodyTite uses directional radiofrequency that is delivered through the skin from the inside out, precisely controlling heat energy transfer across the skin. This allows for measurable improvements in skin tightness as collagen shrinks with heat.
Recovery and Results of BodyTite
At Valley Surgical RGV, we have a team of experienced bariatric surgeons, Dr. Luis Reyes and Dr. Ernesto Garza, who have more than 40 years of combined experience in medicine, and they offer various treatments such as the BodyTite minimally invasive procedure. The team is committed to helping patients navigate their weight-loss journeys safely and confidently. If you’re wondering about the recovery and results of BodyTite, you’ll be happy to know that it’s an FDA-approved and minimally invasive surgical procedure that requires small incisions, just like liposuction. However, it does not involve more incisions than regular liposuction.
The procedure is most common on areas that would be prone to sagging following fat removal, such as the abdomen, arms, and thighs. FaceTite systems help to combat skin sagging by causing contraction and tightening of the underlying fibroseptal network of connective tissue. After the RFAL treatments, patients are instructed to wear a discreet compression garment under their clothes for around 6 weeks to achieve maximal results. The best part is that these procedures have very minimal downtime and can be performed with no anesthesia or light sedation. Patients can be back at work within 3-4 days.
