Regular exercise and a healthy diet are the ideal means of achieving tight body contours with minimal subcutaneous fat deposits. But sometimes, despite your best efforts with exercise and a healthy diet, you may have stubborn pockets of fat that don’t budge. When that happens, your only option might be to undergo a body contouring procedure. Dr. Lisiecki performs a highly personalized BodyTite procedure to liquefy and extract the excess fat cells and tighten the existing skin tissues, making the targeted area look contoured and firm.
What is BodyTite?
BodyTite is a minimally invasive procedure based on the principles of radiofrequency-assisted lipolysis (RFAL). This procedure involves channeling radiofrequency energy into the area with excess fat cells to liquefy and subsequently extract the stubborn fat cells, following which the skin tissues in the area are tightened. This procedure simultaneously reduces fat cells and tightens skin tissues, helping you achieve a slim and taut body without skin laxity.
The most common areas for BodyTite:
- Inner Thighs
- Outer Thighs
The benefits of BodyTite:
- Minimally invasive procedure — extremely small incisions involved
- Minimal post-treatment side effects and discomfort
- Typically a brief procedure, depending on the areas treated
- Minimal post-treatment downtime
- Dissolves excess fat cells and tightens skin tissues
- Improves overall body contours
Dr. Lisiecki’s personalized BodyTite technique
Dr. Lisiecki performs a highly personalized BodyTite procedure after a thorough evaluation and consultation. During the procedure, he makes an extremely small incision on the targeted area to insert a hollow needle called a cannula, which administers a local anesthetic to numb the area. Next, the surgeon inserts the two prongs of the BodyTite device — one goes under the skin, and the other stays above.
The surgeon activates the BodyTite device to generate radiofrequency energy, which flows between the two prongs on either side of the skin. The radiofrequency energy melts the excess fat cells, turning them into liquid, which can be suctioned away from the body via a cannula. Meanwhile, the radiofrequency energy also tightens the skin tissues to prevent skin laxity. This procedure helps you achieve a slimmer and tighter body.
Recovery after a BodyTite procedure
You can expect mild post-treatment swelling and bruising, but these side effects dissipate within a few days to weeks. You should take the rest of the day off, but you can resume most of your daily activities the next day. The treated area will instantly look slimmer, but the skin tightening results will gradually improve over several weeks and months as your body produces new collagen fibers.
