4 Need-to-Know Things About BodyTiteSeptember 6, 2018
BodyTite® PRO is Houston’s most exciting, minimally-invasive body and skin treatment option available at Body by Ravi Plastic Surgery and Aesthetics. It may be just the right thing for you! The innovative technology uses radiofrequency waves to tighten and lift drooping skin to restore a more youthful physique. BodyTite offers exceptional results; and when combined with additional techniques, dramatic body contouring results can be experienced. What are the most important things to know about BodyTite? Take a look:
- BodyTite can be used on a variety of areas: BodyTite can be used to address the lax skin that accompanies aging or weight loss almost anywhere on the body. Immediate improvement in firmness will be noticed and continued improvement will be seen with the increase in collagen and elastin production. The most commonly requested areas for BodyTite include:
- Love handles
- Back and bra fat
- Inferior Buttock Creases
- Upper Arms
- Face and Neck (FaceTite)
2. BodyTite requires less downtime than excisional surgery: Since BodyTite is performed with minimal incisions and no sutures, the recovery is fast and comfortable. Most patients are feeling good enough to return to work and their normal routine within three days. While some swelling is common, patients are encouraged to wear a surgical compression garment for the first several weeks which will help keep this to a minimum. As BodyTite works with the InMode platform, the procedure is extremely safe, precisely monitoring radiofrequency and temperature levels, ensuring little to no side-effects or complications.
3. BodyTite can be performed with liposuction: Traditionally, liposuction has been the choice for patients looking to eliminate small pockets of ugly fatty tissue, but it cannot work miracles as far as skin tightening. Fortunately, BodyTite, when performed with liposuction, combines effective fat melting capabilities with the ability to tighten skin – something that liposuction alone cannot do. For patients with mild to moderate skin sagging and small areas of adipose tissue, BodyTite can achieve surgery-like results without visible scars. Plus Dr. Ravi uses power-assisted liposuction to reduce bruising and swelling, along with faster patient recovery.
- BodyTite continues to tighten skin for up to a full year: You can expect to see improvements in skin tautness immediately after your BodyTite procedure. However, the majority of results will take from three to six months to appear, as the body’s collagen supply is restored, tightening tissues by up to 40%. Benefits of a single BodyTite session can continue to improve for a full year. Patients who maintain a healthy lifestyle and remain at a stable weight can see the results from BodyTite improve for up to a
The ideal candidate for BodyTite will be someone looking to improve and tighten lax, excessive skin and eliminate small pockets of stubborn fat on the arms, legs, or body. If you are in overall good health and are close to your ideal body weight, BodyTite may be the body contouring technique you have been looking for.
