BodyTite: Minimally Invasive Skin Tightening and Lifting
BodyTite lifts and tightens skin without open surgery. BodyTite is a Radio Frequency Assisted Liposuction, that is relatively new technology. It sculpts, tightens and lifts problem areas of the body simultaneously. BodyTite uses a small cannula to achieve up to 2/3 of the tightening and lifting of an open surgical body lift such as tummy tuck, breast lift or thigh lift without a creating a scar. While liposuction is a great way to remove or sculpt fat that is under the skin, it can still result in loose skin in the problem area. Adding BodyTite to liposuction can tighten and lift the skin, improving the result of liposuction even in the body area with loose skin.
Certain areas can be more susceptible to loose skin after liposuction. Some of these areas include the upper arms, inner thighs, the area over the knees, and the lower abdomen. In the past, the only way to treat the loose skin has been to endure more surgical procedures. With BodyTite, you can take care of it all at once, with minimal scarring!
How Does BodyTite Work?
Using Radio Frequency Assisted Liposuction, BodyTite can both melt fight and tighten skin at the same time. The handpiece that is used has two probes that project out of the handle. One is longer and a big blunter, and resembles a liposuction cannula, but is a bit smaller than that. The other is more solid and is the one that delivers the radio wave energy. This one is wide and flat. The first probe (the long and thin one) goes inside the body, whereas the second one (the wide and flat one) rests on the outside of the body. The handpiece is connected to a computer from the base unit, and that is what controls the energy from the two probes.
The upper arms are a major problem area for a lot of people, BodyTite RFAL has shown a 33.5% reduction in the overall skin surface area there. Another problem area is the lower abdomen. Compared to regular tumescent liposuction which resulted in an 8.3% skin surface area reduction, BodyTite had a whopping 26% surface area reduction at one year! That is four times the skin tightening!
BodyTite Minimally Invasive Breast Lift:
Traditional breast reduction or lift surgeries have often resulted in a long scar on the front of the breasts. With the radio frequency technology that BodyTite offers, skin tightening can occur while fat is removed, and it’s also minimally invasive. Which means smaller or no scars! Open surgical breast reductions and lift still probably the best option for very large and very saggy breasts. However, the skin tightening and lift BodyTite can give is minimally invasive and give results which approach the results of an open surgical breast lift. Women who want a faster recovery or who are don’t want scars on the front of the breasts or who concerns about loss of nipple sensation now have a good option to the traditional breast reduction and lift.
