Skin laxity is a common concern and cannot always be addressed via traditional surgical methods. BodyTite offers a comprehensive body contouring solution to patients who suffer from loose or lax skin almost anywhere on the body. This unique procedure allows the flexibility to be performed either as a standalone procedure with the patient awake using local anesthesia or under general anesthesia as part of a larger surgical procedure. Learn more below about how BodyTite’s state of the art technology offers a new level of results with minimal downtime.
How BodyTite Works
BodyTite is a directional radio-frequency (RF) device that effectively and noticeably tightens and remodels the skin treated through volumetric heating and fat coagulation. As a safe and minimally-invasive method of body contouring, BodyTite has revolutionized the plastic and cosmetic surgery field by providing great skin tightening results without the traditional (and often extensive) scars and downtime associated with prior methods of skin removal and tightening.
Once your treatment areas have been marked out by Dr. Blaine, the area to be treated is sterilely prepped and injected with numbing solution. A unique handpiece delivers radiofrequency (RF) energy both internally and externally with precision-controlled heat monitoring, ensuring consistent skin tightening effects. This heat introduced to the treatment areas also melts subcutaneous fat, which is then gently and easily removed via liposuction. This dual treatment reduces inches, debulks, and creates a tighter, smoother, lifted, and toned physique, ultimately improving body contour and body proportions.
As a minimally invasive procedure that shapes, tightens, and lifts skin without the scalpel or scar, Bodytite is an exciting and popular treatment option at Blaine Plastic Surgery to address loose or lax skin of the face, neck, chests, breasts, arms, abdomen, and thighs.
Benefits of BodyTite
Stubborn areas of excess fat and lax skin are easily addressed simultaneously in this minimally invasive body contouring solution. BodyTite is a practical solution for problem areas anywhere on the body commonly including:
BodyTite also offers a face and neck application, FaceTite, which offers a non-surgical face lifting procedure to those looking to treat signs of facial aging and/or volume loss without the traditional scars and downtime associated with a face or neck lift.
Recovery from BodyTite Treatment
When treated with local anesthesia, patients can drive themselves home immediately following this procedure. At Blaine Plastic Surgery our concern is always patient experience, satisfaction, and comfort, so we also offer the option of ProNox to ensure both a comfortable and pleasant experience.
Mild swelling, soreness, and bruising are to be expected following your BodyTite procedure, but most patients can return to normal activities within the first 24 hours. It is recommended that our patients wear a compression garment for the first few weeks post-treatment, but the exact length of use will depend on the area(s) treated and amount of liposuction having been performed.
