What is BodyTite radiofrequency assisted liposuction?
BodyTite radiofrequency assisted liposuction is an innovative and major advancement in the field of body contouring, body sculpting and liposuction, suitable for men and women who have unwanted fat in targeted areas. BodyTite is InMode’s minimally-invasive body contouring procedure delivering results previously only achieved through more excisional surgical procedure.
BodyTite is powered by directional radiofrequency resulting in three-dimensional tissue remodelling through the coagulation and volumetric heating. BodyTite is a minimally invasive lipolysis technique, which is designed to melt away fat deposits from any part of the body. This technique is also effective for skin tightening.
Why consider BodyTite radiofrequency assisted liposuction?
BodyTite offers a minimally invasive procedure that delivers surgical results with no large incisions, minimal down time and long-lasting results.. BodyTite technology provides solutions to younger patients who are no yet ready for a facelift or who do not wish to have a tummy tuck.
When skin laxity is more of a concern then fat removal, BodyTite treatment provides the perfect solution. I find when fat removal is a priority and skin laxity is a concern, the combination of BodyTite and liposuction gives great results.
Did you know?
What concerns can be addressed?
BodyTite addresses concerns such as:
- Body skin laxity
- Supporting skin retraction following surgery
- Might delay or reduce need for surgical skin removal surgeries
How many treatments will I need?
The results of BodyTite should be permanent. However, with any non-surgical fat reduction procedure the results and how they last will be dependent on your lifestyle choices. BodyTite will not prevent further weight gain if you follow a less than healthy diet and exercise regime. It should be seen as a step towards a healthy and active lifestyle.
What areas can be treated?
- Abdomen and lower tummy
How long does the surgery take?
The process takes only 45-60 minutes to perform under general anaesthesia, visible results are seen immediately and last long-term (with a healthy and active lifestyle)
WHAT FORM OF ANAESTHETIC WILL BE USED?
BodyTite radiofrequency assisted liposuction is performed under total intravenous anaesthesia (TIVA), a technique of anaesthesia which uses a combination of agents given exclusively via the intravenous route without the use of gas anaesthesia. This means you will sleep comfortably throughout the procedure and wake immediately afterwards with a significantly reduced likelihood of feeling groggy or nauseous. The anaesthesia will be explained to you by your Anaesthetist during the preoperative consultation.
How long will the results last?
Results from BodyTite should be permanent. However, as with many fat reduction and skin tightening procedures, this will only be the case if you continue to maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle following treatment.
HOW DO I ACHIEVE THE BEST RESULT AND ULTIMATELY MY DESIRED PHYSIQUE?
A combination of liposuction, dieting and exercise is key to a good result, however a good candidate for this procedure is someone who has realistic expectations and is in good health.
What can I expect after BodyTite radiofrequency assisted liposuction surgery?
After BodyTite radiofrequency assisted liposuction, you will need to wear a soft, elastic, compression garment for between one and two to help with skin retraction, reduce swelling and assist your recovery during the healing period. The garments are easy to hide under your normal clothes. Bruising should settle between ten and twenty days.
You will be asked to come in for a post-operative nurse appointment one week after your surgery. At this point your incision sites will be reviewed, stitches removed and your preliminary healing will be assessed. You will come back at six week after surgery to be reviewed by Mr Olivier Amar.
How long do I have to wait to return to normal activities following the surgery?
Depending on your type of daily activity, you will usually be able to resume your normal activities after two to ten days and return to gentle exercise after two to three weeks. Strenuous activity should be avoided for at least 2-weeks. Mr Olivier Amar will discuss this with you in further detail at your consultation.
