BodyTite results are like liposuction, but without the lengthy recovery time, potential for scarring, or complex surgery techniques. BodyTite is the most popular minimally invasive procedure for contouring the body and face.
Radio-Frequency Assisted Lipolysis (RFAL) powers this innovative procedure. A small needle-like tool called a cannula is inserted, which can liquefy and remove fat from the targeted areas. While simultaneously and overlying, RF is used above the skin. The thermal energy is applied both under and above the skin so that the fat removal and skin tightening can be addressed in a single procedure.
In short, BodyTite provides surgical results with less downtime and incredible immediate results that continue to improve over time.
At Buckhead Plastic Surgery, your comfort is our priority. For this procedure, a combination of local anesthetic for pain control, and epinephrine (used to decrease bleeding but also facilitate fat removal) are injected to each targeted area. Therefore, the fat to be removed will swell, making it easier to remove.
The effects of this procedure are immediately visible, but one of the reasons patients love this process is the results continue to improve over the coming weeks. Over time more fat will dissolve and eliminate from the body by natural means. While your body continues to eliminate fat, the skin will simultaneously tighten.
Individual results will vary depending on your personal body chemistry and the areas you want to be treated. However, most patients experience as much as a 47% skin contraction over time. Although some results will be immediately visible, final results are expected 3-6 months following treatment.
