BodyTite™ Skin Tightening
Philadelphia plastic surgeon Dr. Louis P. Bucky and his team are excited to offer BodyTite™, a minimally invasive body sculpting procedure that utilizes radiofrequency energy to reduce fat and tighten skin. BodyTite™ is the perfect complement to liposuction, allowing patients who have had stubborn fat removed from areas such as the abdomen or love handles to achieve a firm, toned appearance. BodyTite™ can also be performed without liposuction for fat reduction and skin tightening on areas such as the arms, thighs, and buttocks.
How Does BodyTite Work?
BodyTite™ harnesses the power of radiofrequency (RF) energy to create heat that melts fat cells and stimulates the body’s natural collagen production to contract loose skin.. During the procedure, a narrow tube is inserted through a tiny incision into the subdermal fat layer of the area being treated. The RF energy creates heat that melts the fat cells and causes loose skin to contract. The result is a smoother, toned appearance with results that will continue to improve as collagen levels increase. Every BodyTite™ treatment is customized to address the needs of each individual patient. BodyTite™ can be performed with or without anesthesia, depending on the size of the area being treated.
BodyTite and Liposuction
Liposuction can eliminate stubborn fat that doesn’t respond to diet and exercise, but liposuction alone does not address loose or sagging skin. Patients who are interested in liposuction, but are also bothered by skin that has lost elasticity may benefit from combining BodyTite™ with their liposuction procedure. The small incisions that Dr. Bucky makes for liposuction can also typically be used for BodyTite™, allowing you to eliminate fat and tighten skin without additional incisions. Surgical liposuction with minimally invasive BodyTite™ can be a highly effective combination for patients seeking a sleek, toned, and youthful looking body.
Minimally Invasive Body Sculpting With BodyTite
Many patients are concerned with small amounts of excess fat and lax skin on areas such as the arms, abdomen, thighs, knees, and axillary area, but do not feel ready for liposuction or surgical procedures such as an arm lift or tummy tuck. BodyTite™ can be an excellent solution to reduce small fat deposits and rejuvenate skin that has mild to moderate sagging.
Am I a Candidate for BodyTite?
If you are considering liposuction and are also concerned about skin laxity, BodyTite™ can be an effective addition to your treatment plan. BodyTite™ without liposuction can diminish small areas of fat and tighten skin. Patients who have severe loss of skin elasticity with loose skin that hangs may require surgical body lift procedures to achieve their desired results. Ideal candidates for BodyTite™ are:
- In good general health
- Maintain a stable weight
- Seeking minimally invasive body contouring and skin tightening
- Would like more firm and toned looking skin on the abdomen, arms, back, thighs, or buttocks
