Loose skin can be a problem for many. It can be especially a problem for those who have lost weight or have had liposuction. If your skin doesn’t have enough elasticity and you have liposuction, it can leave unflattering loose skin. That’s where BodyTite comes in. Either on its own or combined with liposuction, it can address and tighten loose skin and give you the contoured and sculpted appearance you desire.

  • What is BodyTite?

    BodyTite is a state-of-the-art treatment that uses radiofrequency energy to tighten skin and stimulate collagen production. It offers a non-invasive alternative to surgery for tightening and firming sagging skin, whether from weight loss, pregnancy, or aging. BodyTite is often combined with a minimally invasive form of liposuction (radiofrequency assisted lipolysis or RFAL) to liquefy and remove pockets of diet- and exercise-resistant fat. The treatment leaves only tiny, virtually invisible scars, and no stitches are required.

    The combination of skin tightening and fat elimination in a single procedure makes BodyTite an attractive alternative to traditional liposuction and other non-invasive fat-removal procedures.

    BodyTite can also be used on a number of areas of the body, including:

      • Abdomen

      • Hips

      • Back

      • Bra Line

  • Who is a Good Candidate for BodyTite?

    BodyTite may be a procedure for you if you are close to (within 30 percent of) your ideal weight and have areas of moderately loose skin and pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. It is most effective for contouring and tightening specific areas of the body. It is not a weight-loss treatment.

    The best candidates are in generally good health with realistic expectations and a positive outlook. Patient must be a non-smoker. BodyTite is not recommended for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding or for people with autoimmune diseases, skin diseases, infections, or allergies to certain local anesthetics. This procedure is only good for patients under the age of 40 due to collagen production.

From my first call to book my appointment and scheduling post op visits and calls in between, with Taylor, who could not have been more accommodating and kind, to my consult, with Dr. Wilson, who is so sweet, and honest, to my actual procedure, with Rossli and Monica, who were the best! This entire staff was nothing but helpful, friendly, knowledgeable and kind. I had the CO2 laser procedure and was so nervous, these ladies put me at ease and made the experience more than tolerable, LOL! I highly recommend AW Plastic surgery!!

  • The BodyTite Procedure

    If you are having the BodyTite procedure to remove fat, the first step will be to administer a local anesthetic to the treatment area. Dr. Wilson will then make a small incision in the skin, just large enough to insert a cannula (a thin surgical tube) at the end of which are electrodes that emit radiofrequency energy. These precisely controlled bursts of energy heat and liquefy the fat cells, which are suctioned out through the cannula.

    The heat from the radiofrequency bursts also stimulates the production of collagen, a compound that, over time, works to tighten and rejuvenate the skin. Sensors monitor the temperature of the skin throughout the treatment to control the intensity of the energy bursts.

    Treatment of a single area takes 30 to 45 minutes once it has been numbed with anesthetic. Because most patients receive treatment in more than one area, the entire procedure typically takes two to four hours.

  • Aftercare

    The skin tightening results of BodyTite treatment will begin to be visible within two weeks and continue to improve over the following weeks as increased levels of collagen in the skin cause it to firm and contract. Most patients see a 25- to 45-percent contraction of the skin in the treated area when maximum results are reached at about six months.

    If you have BodyTIte with liposuction, the liposuction results will take longer to be visible, as the initial reaction to the procedure will include some swelling. You’ll see the results of the fat removal within about three months. Your results will depend on the area treated and how much fat has been removed. Dr. Wilson can show you before-and-after photographs of other patients to give you an idea of how significant the slimming and contouring effects can be.
