BodyTite uses radiofrequency to tighten and lift the skin.
This method is generally used to treat the buttocks, stomach, thighs and arms. However, BodyTite can be performed anywhere on the body where there is excess fat and skin.
There are numerous advantages to undergoing BodyTite, including:
You will be a suitable candidate for this procedure if you:
Prior to undergoing this procedure, you will need to have a consultation with one of our surgeons. They will be able to assess whether or not you are a suitable candidate, or whether you should undergo one of the surgical procedures instead.
The BodyTite procedure will be performed under a local anaesthetic. This means you will be awake throughout the duration of the procedure but will be unable to feel any pain and discomfort.
After you are given the local anaesthetic, a small incision will be made. This will allow the surgeon to insert a cannula.
This cannula will emit applied thermal energy. Power will automatically shut off when the ideal temperature is achieved. This prevents any overheating of the electrodes.
The hollow cannula will also be connected to low suction, which will be performed both close to the skin and at a subcutaneous fat level.
Next, a radiofrequency electrode will be attached to the end of the cannula. This will be placed on top of the skin. Both of these combine to tighten the skin and eliminate the fat cells.
This procedure will leave you with tighter, smoother looking skin.
If necessary, BodyTite can be combined with liposuction to achieve the best results.
Following the procedure, it is normal to experience some bruising and swelling, particularly around the incision site. This should only last a few days.
You may experience some slight discomfort which can be managed through taking pain medication. Any pain will reduce after a few weeks.
You will be given a compression garment which you will need to wear. This will not only help to prevent fluid build-up and reduce swelling, but it will ensure you stay in the best shape possible.
You should avoid any strenuous physical activities for at least 10 days. Your surgeon will be able to give you personal advice on whether you can resume activities earlier or will need to wait longer.
You will begin to notice results one to three months after the procedure. The full results will generally be noticeable after six months.
For the best results, you may wish to have multiple BodyTite treatments or combine this with other body contouring procedures.
BodyTite is a body contouring procedure which works to remove excess fat and tighten the skin.
Unlike other body contouring procedures, this is a non-invasive procedure which uses radiofrequency rather than large incisions.
The most common areas for BodyTite is the buttocks, thighs, stomach and arms. However, you may be able to have this procedure anywhere on the body where there is mild excess fat and skin.
BodyTite is performed under a local anaesthetic.
A small incision will be made and a cannula will be inserted. This cannula will apply controlled thermal energy.
A radiofrequency electrode will be applied to the top of the cannula and is placed on top of the skin.
The cannula and electrode work to tighten the skin and eliminate fat cells.
You will need to wear a compression garment on the area you had BodyTite. This will help to speed up the recovery period by avoiding fluid build up and reducing swelling. It will also ensure the contoured area of the body stays in the best shape possible.
You will start to notice the results one to three months after the procedure. The results will continue to improve, with the final results being visible after six months.
