BodyTite & FaceTite
Women and men concerned about excess fat and sagging skin on their faces or bodies now have a less invasive alternative to traditional surgical procedures such as liposuction or a facelift. Available in The Woodlands at SGK Plastic Surgery north of Houston, TX, BodyTite and FaceTite tightens skin, reduces fat, and reshapes the contours of the treatment areas using advanced radiofrequency technology. These treatments offer results that nearly match those produced by more invasive plastic surgery with reduced downtime and less scarring.
Benefits of BodyTite & FaceTite
One of the primary concerns about either nonsurgical or surgical fat reduction treatments is the skin’s appearance following the procedure. Patients whose skin has lost any of its elasticity may be left with wrinkled or sagging skin once they’ve had fat removed using liposuction or a non-invasive treatment.
BodyTite and FaceTite address this issue using radiofrequency-assisted lipolysis, a technological advancement that tightens skin as fat is extracted. This less invasive approach creates dramatic results with tiny incisions and minimal downtime.
Candidates for BodyTite & FaceTite
The versatility of the BodyTite and FaceTite treatments makes it an ideal choice for most women and men interested in targeted fat reduction and skin tightening procedures. Because we can customize the treatment based on each patient’s individual needs, the procedure benefits:
- Women after having children
- Men and women who have lost weight
- Individuals in good overall shape who want targeted fat reduction and skin tightening
- People with jowls or excess neck fat
BodyTite and FaceTite Procedures
These minimally invasive treatments are performed as outpatient procedures using either general anesthesia or a local anesthetic enhanced with a sedative. The procedure begins with Dr. Kim making a tiny incision at the treatment site. In both BodyTite and FaceTite procedures, 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 lasts from 1 to 2 hours for each treatment area.
BodyTite Treatment Areas
Many patients considering traditional liposuction in Conroe, Spring, or Houston, TX, may be better served by BodyTite. It’s a less invasive procedure that can treat virtually all of the same areas of the body addresses by liposuction surgery, with the added benefit of skin tightening. Those areas include:
- Thighs (inner and outer)
- Back or “bra bulge”
- Upper arms
As a liposuction alternative, BodyTite is becoming very popular among our patients.
FaceTite Treatment Areas
FaceTite is best-suited for the lower face and neck. One of the most common cosmetic concerns of both men and women is loose neck skin, jowls, and the loss of definition along the jawline. Fat also tends to accumulate below the chin as we age, creating a double chin. For younger patients concerned about double chins, KYBELLA® can be an effective treatment. But for individuals who need skin tightening in addition to fat reduction, FaceTite represents a breakthrough alternative.
Recovery & Results
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 about a week or 2. You’ll begin to see your new results as the swelling goes down. The combination of fat reduction and skin tightening produces a smoother, contoured look in the treatment area.
