How does BodyTite work?
The BodyTite device by InMode allows Dr. Prokupek to target a patient's body fat without the kind of incision that traditional liposuction or plastic surgery requires. Inserting a cannula to suction out the fat is still required, but the process allows for the use of smaller microcannulas to reduce scarring and shorten recovery time. In addition, the RF heat helps to stimulate the body's collagen production, leading to tighter, firmer, more youthful skin in the treatment area.
The procedure is outpatient and typically requires only a local anesthetic, so there is minimal downtime involved. In fact, most patients are virtually pain-free after 2 – 3 days. However, Dr. Prokupek recommends resting for 5 – 10 days after treatment.
What happens after BodyTite treatment?
Patients can expect to experience some pain and swelling during the first few days of recovery, but pain medication is offered when appropriate. Much of your recovery will depend on the areas you have treated.
A compression garment is also necessary to control any excessive swelling and should be worn 24 hours a day in the 1 – 2 weeks after treatment. This is a crucial part of recovery, and neglecting to wear the garment can affect the final results of the procedure or lead to fluid buildup.
What are some of the benefits of BodyTite?
In just one session, BodyTite can help slim and shape your body and tighten your skin. People who get BodyTite typically want to achieve the following:
A reduction in stubborn fat pockets
Tightened skin in areas with sagging
A slimmer, more contoured body shape
Curves in the right places
BodyTite can be performed on various areas, including the chin, neck, jowls, cheeks, arms, thighs, buttocks, knees, hips, and abdomen. The results are also long-lasting.
How long does it take to see results after BodyTite?
Because the BodyTite procedure is so long-lasting, it takes some time to see results. The first results will be visible once the swelling goes down, but it takes time for the body to heal from the procedure, adjust to a lack of fat cells in treated areas, and rev up collagen production so you can see tighter, younger-looking skin.
Full BodyTite results are achieved within 3 – 6 months after treatment. This is faster than most traditional liposuction procedures.
To maintain the results of BodyTite, it's essential to adhere to a diet and exercise regimen to avoid weight gain.
