BodyTite is a revolutionary, minimally-invasive skin, fat and tissue remodeling system. With the use of RF technology, the skin-tightening, fat-melting system has been developed with controlled heating to ensure smooth results.
Tired of sagging skin and excess fat? Discover BodyTite.
Women and men concerned about excess fat and sagging skin on the body can now be treated with a less invasive alternative to liposuction or surgical body contouring. Available in The Woodlands at SGK Plastic Surgery north of Houston, TX, BodyTite tightens skin, reduces fat, and reshapes the contours of the treatment areas using advanced radiofrequency technology. These treatments offer results that closely resemble what was only possible through invasive plastic surgery – with reduced downtime and less scarring.
BodyTite addresses excess fat and loose skin with radiofrequency-assisted lipolysis, a technological advancement that tightens skin as fat is extracted. This less invasive approach creates dramatic results that involves only tiny incisions and minimal downtime.
Benefits of BodyTite
One of the primary concerns about either non-surgical or surgical fat reduction treatments is the skin’s appearance following the procedure. Patients whose skin has lost elasticity may be left with wrinkled or sagging skin once they’ve had fat removed using liposuction. With BodyTite, not only is the fat removed – the overlying skin is tightened for a firmer, more sculpted look. The benefits include:
- Fat dissolved and gently removed
- Smoother results than liposuction due to skin-tightening
- Reduced risk of bleeding or bruising
- Less downtime
- More comfortable to experience
- No general anesthesia required
- Dramatic results with just one treatment
What is the BodyTite procedure?
These minimally invasive treatments are performed as outpatient procedures using general anesthesia. The procedure begins with Dr. Kim making a tiny incision at the treatment site. Dr. Kim inserts a small wand that delivers carefully controlled radiofrequency energy as she passes it through the tissue just below the skin’s surface.
An external radiofrequency transmitter glides across the skin so the procedure heats the tissue both from the outside and inside. The heat breaks apart fatty tissue, which is suctioned away using the internal wand. The procedure typically requires about one to two hours for each treatment area.
What areas of the body can be treated with BodyTite?
Many patients considering traditional liposuction in The Woodlands may be better served by undergoing BodyTite. It’s a less invasive procedure that can treat virtually the same areas of the body that can be addressed by liposuction surgery, with the added benefit of skin tightening. Body areas we commonly treat with BodyTite include:
- Thighs (inner and outer)
- Back or “bra bulge”
- Upper arms
As a liposuction alternative, BodyTite is taking over the field, as the added benefit of skin tightening can produce a result superior to traditional lipo.
How much does BodyTite cost?
BodyTite is a minimally invasive body contouring procedure that can cost $11,000 or more, depending on the areas treated and the surgeon's fees. Additional costs may include anesthesia, facility fees, and post-operative care.
Recovery after BodyTite
You can return home immediately after your treatment and rest for the remainder of the day. You can expect some swelling, redness, uneven skin, and soreness after the treatment. This resolves on its own in one to two weeks. You’ll begin to see your new results as the swelling diminishes. However, skin tightening may take up to three to six months. The combination of fat reduction and skin tightening produces a smooth, contoured look that lasts – the extracted fat is gone for good.
