What Are The Potential Side Effects From A BodyTite Procedure?
Loose skin and stubborn fat are among the most common cosmetic concerns that lead men and women to pursue plastic surgery each year. However, many patients are interested in a less invasive and more convenient alternative to surgery. For these patients, board-certified internist Dr. Dale Prokupek and the acclaimed team at Aesthetic Body Solutions in Beverly Hills, CA are proud to offer the revolutionary BodyTite system. Learn more about minimally invasive body sculpting with BodyTite here, and find out what you can expect during and after your treatment session.
What is BodyTite?
BodyTite by InMode is an innovative treatment system designed to resculpt areas of loose, wrinkled skin or stubborn fat through the use of advanced radiofrequency-assisted lipolysis (RFAL), suction energy, and other technologies. The procedure itself involves precise heat energy to liquefy fat cells, tighten the skin, and promote the body’s natural production of collagen for firmer, more youthful-looking skin overall. Because BodyTite is minimally invasive, it can be performed using local anesthesia only, meaning patients enjoy less pain, fewer side effects, and a more comfortable recovery compared with traditional body contouring surgery.
Where can BodyTite be used?
BodyTite, which can be highly beneficial for both men and women, is often used to make enhancements in the following areas:
- Chest (male)
In many cases, BodyTite is used to treat multiple areas during a single session for an even more complete transformation. Another procedure, FaceTite, is available to treat targeted areas on the face and neck using similar technology.
Does BodyTite have any side effects?
Like all treatments and procedures, there are some potential side effects associated with BodyTite. If BodyTite side effects do occur, however, they are typically mild and resolve quickly on their own. These may include:
- Feeling of tightness
Less common risks of BodyTite include skin/tissue burns and infection at the incision site. However, when performed properly by a certified, skilled, and experienced provider, these complications are exceedingly rare.
How long is recovery after BodyTite?
In the first 2 – 3 days after BodyTite, patients should expect mild pain, bruising, and swelling. The majority of patients feel comfortable returning to work within 1 – 2 weeks after their BodyTite treatment, though compressive garments will need to be worn around the clock for the first 1 – 2 weeks. Additional restrictions on physical activity may apply, depending on the extent of your treatment. Most patients notice visible improvements to their figure about one week after BodyTite, with the results continuing to develop over the following months as new collagen forms and the skin becomes tighter and firmer.
How many BodyTite sessions do you need?
Unlike other nonsurgical body contouring treatments, which require up to 4 – 6 sessions or more, BodyTite can provide stunning, long-lasting results with a single procedure. To preserve your BodyTite results for as long as possible, it is important to maintain a stable weight after BodyTite.
