BodyTite Houston

Maybe full-on liposuction isn’t for you, but you still are in the market for some body contouring. What can you do? The answer is BodyTite body contouring in Houston. You can tighten skin and achieve notable contouring through a minimally-invasive process. With a faster recovery period and stunning results, it is easy to see why more and more patients are turning to BodyTite.

At Linville Plastic Surgery, we are committed to finding the right procedure for every patient’s needs and goals. BodyTite provides an accessible way to achieve body contouring for a wide range of patients. Call us today to learn more about BodyTite in Houston and get started.

What Is BodyTite?

BodyTite uses radiofrequency-assisted liposuction (RFAL) for effective fat removal and cellulite reduction with noticeable skin tightening effects. In practice, this means you can achieve stunning contouring results with less strain than traditional liposuction. But you get the added benefit of skin tightening! In fact, a typical BodyTite procedure can provide 40% more skin tightening than traditional liposuction treatment.

A young, healthy person with good quality skin may experience excellent skin contraction after the procedure. That means tighter, firmer skin that both looks and feels years younger. All in a single treatment in under one hour.

Can Bodytite be Combine with Other Procedures?

This body contouring procedure is often combined with liposuction. BodyTite can provide excellent results on its own. But many patients enjoy the combination as it is typically well tolerated. And it is ideal for combining with liposuction as the heat produced is capable of melting fatty tissue. This in turn allows for easier fat and cellulite removal during the procedure. Unlike procedures that require skin excision, BodyTite offers qualified candidates the advantage of body contouring and skin tightening using a minimally-invasive method and little downtime.

Likewise, additional non-surgical treatments can help preserve your results after BodyTite. Treatments designed to promote skin tightening such as microneedling and laser skin resurfacing can provide additional benefits.

Benefits Of BodyTite Treatment:

  • Significant skin tightening (up to 40% skin contraction observed in clinical studies)
  • Uniform treatment
  • Consistent results
  • Less bruising, swelling and pain
  • Shorter downtime
  • Improved safety
  • Cellulite Reduction

Who Can Benefit From A BodyTite Procedure?

If you want to improve your body contours, then this could be the ideal procedure for you. It matches especially well with patients who have discreet pockets of fat resistant to exercise and diet. Frankly, diet and exercise simply are not enough in many situations. Stubborn fat seems to stick around no matter what. That’s where BodyTite can work its magic, letting you say goodbye to those pockets of fat.

BodyTite is also ideal for patients with sagging skin. As we covered, its skin-tightening capacity is excellent. Weight changes, aging, pregnancy, and heredity all contribute to sagging skin. BodyTite is a perfect solution to achieve a desirable, more youthful appearance. It is especially beneficial for patients who do not want to commit to full surgery.

What To Expect from BodyTite

BodyTite can be performed under local anesthesia or light sedation. By avoiding stronger sedation, you put less strain on your body. Likewise, it also reduces any recovery period by allowing faster healing. While each procedure can vary, most patients can expect the treatment to take well under an hour. Sometimes BodyTite can be done in only half an hour. It depends on your treatment areas and if you are combining it with other procedures.

The downtime is approximately 2-3 days for the initial recovery. In some cases, you may need to wear a compression garment for about 2 weeks to promote ideal healing. Most patients achieve full recovery in a couple days. Likewise, any subtle scars will eventually fade over time and should be minimally visible. Usually, one treatment is sufficient for patients to get the results they want. While your results can last for years, it will also be important to adopt healthy habits. A good skincare routine can also help slow signs of aging.
