Was there ever a time in your life when you somehow wished that you could modify or enhance a particular part of your body? Well, you are not alone. Many people, especially women, are conscious when it comes to their body image or physical appearance. More often than not, one’s height, weight, or body shape can have a positive or negative effect on one’s self-esteem and confidence. Because of body image concerns, there is a desire to conceal and contour some imperfections such as visible scars and the presence of cellulite and flabby skin. Many choose to undergo surgical procedures to enhance the body, while some are still hesitant as they may also leave some noticeable scars. Luckily, because of technological advances, people may now undergo a procedure known as the BodyTite.
What is BodyTite and what are the target areas?
BodyTite is a slightly invasive procedure that uses Radio Frequency to eliminate excess fat and lift the skin. This heat-based procedure can target the arms, thighs, hips, and abdomen to achieve a toned body. Compared to traditional Liposuction, BodyTite is FDA-approved, scar-free, less traumatic, and only requires minimal recovery time. If you wish to achieve a youthful glow and firm skin without undergoing surgery, then this one’s for you.
How is BodyTite Performed?
First, local anesthesia is injected into the area where the incision will be done. However, some patients request mild sedation prior to treatment. This is followed by the insertion of a tiny instrument that is attached to the radio frequency machine. The instrument consists of a probe that is inserted beneath the skin and a wand that allows the radio frequency energy to surface above the skin. The probe dissolves the fats while the wand shrinks the skin allowing it to produce collagen. To remove the excess fats, the doctor suctions out the melted fats by inserting a small tube into the incision.
What to expect Post BodyTite Procedure?
The most common side effects of the BodyTite Procedure are minimal numbness, swelling, and bruising but compared to surgical procedures, these usually wear off within the month. To achieve full recovery, the patient may wear a compression garment to help the body restore collagen and aid adequate slimming results. The skin might be a bit sensitive post-op, therefore it is advisable to use sunscreen to protect your skin from direct sunlight. Since this is a minimally invasive procedure, patients can go home right after the BodyTite treatment and resume their daily activities in 1 to 2 days. They may also continue with their workout routines in 2 weeks. It takes 2-4 weeks before you see the results, but the contour will refine after 4-6 months.
What are the benefits of BodyTite?
BodyTite procedure is a time-efficient method that one can opt to undergo especially if you have a very busy schedule. Aside from this, you would not have to worry about scarring as it only requires a small incision on the target area. Lastly, compared to surgery, this procedure is also less expensive.
How much does BodyTite cost?
BodyTite usually costs $5,000 but it depends on which area you would like to target.
