There have always been great surgical options for improving a patient’s body contour—chiefly liposuction, a tummy tuck, or an arm lift. There are also good non-surgical options for addressing fat, such as CoolSculpting. Until now, there has never been a technique that gets rid of excess fat and tightens the skin without leaving fairly large scars.
BodyTite is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that uses RFAL, or radio frequency-assisted lipolysis. The FDA approved for skin tightening; the device works via two treatment points: one on top of the skin and one under the skin. The energy passes between these two points, heating the tissues from both inside and outside. This destroys the underlying fat cells in the treatment area and leaves your skin tighter and appearing smoother and more youthful.
BodyTite is a fascinating new addition to Dr. Helen Allison’s body contouring tool chest. The first non-invasive procedure that he’s seen to deliver surgical results with no downtime and little scarring.
During your consultation for BodyTite, Dr. Helen Allison will discuss your body contouring goals. He will perform a physical exam, assessing your skin quality, skin laxity, and the degree of excess fat. The procedure is ideal for patients with small amounts of excess fat and loose but not severely-sagging skin.
BodyTite can be performed alone or in conjunction with another procedure, such as liposuction or Cellfina for cellulite.
During your BodyTite procedure, Dr. Helen Allison will insert a probe through two small surgical incisions in the treatment area. This allows the probe to heat your skin three-dimensionally: in the dermis layer, in the underlying connective tissue and in the deep fat. Built-in safeguards prevent the machine from overheating or injuring the skin.
The fat is then removed using a thin tube, called a cannula. This basic procedure is similar to other types of liposuction. The difference is that with BodyTite, radio-frequency energy melts, or liquefies, the fat. This makes it easier to remove the fat while not harm the surrounding tissues. The device can be used anywhere on the body where you may have excess fat or loose skin, such as the arms, abdomen, breasts, knees, thighs, chin and back.
