A treatment with BodyTite may be helpful if you would like to see improved skin tightness and contours in one or several regions of your body. You might be a candidate for BodyTite if you would like to get rid of stubborn pockets of fat and also enhance the appearance of sagging or wrinkled skin. You might have thought about body lift surgery or traditional liposuction but would rather minimize surgical scarring and recovery time. Many regions of the body may be treated with BodyTite; however, a few of the more common areas patients want help with are the chest, arms, stomach, thighs, and knees. During your initial consultation, Dr. Kouris will pay attention to your needs and goals before helping you determine if BodyTite is best for you.
The BodyTite procedure is generally done with local anesthesia; however, general anesthesia can be used if you're nervous or getting multiple areas treated. The special BodyTite applicator is inserted via three-millimeter incisions in your skin. The applicator has an external and internal thermometer to guard you against burns. Dr. Kouris will use the applicator to liquefy and loosen the fat using radiofrequency waves so that the fat is easily removed from your body. The heat used throughout the fat elimination will tighten your connective tissue and skin for immediate improvements. BodyTite therapies usually take around 30 – 45 minutes for each area. Several treatments might be required or suggested by Dr. Kouris to provide your best outcomes.
What to Expect
You'll have to recover for 5 – 10 days following your BodyTite procedure. A compression garment needs to be worn on the treated areas to encourage healing while also holding your new body contours. Some outcomes will be visible instantly; however, your final results won't be apparent for several months when the inflammation and swelling are gone. Even though the fat that's removed can't grow back, the remaining fat cells may become bigger if you gain weight; therefore, it's important to keep a healthy, steady weight following your BodyTite procedure.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does BodyTite cost?
The cost of a BodyTite by InMode procedure can vary, according to the number of areas being treated. During your initial consultation at Kouris M.D. Cosmetic Plastic Surgery, Dr. Kouris will assess your goals and concerns and create a customized treatment plan. Once this has been created, Dr. Kouris can go over all your estimated costs and inform you of the payment methods we accept.
Should I choose BodyTite or other surgical options?
BodyTite by InMode is an ideal choice for individuals who wish to avoid lengthy recovery times, scars, and the expense of aesthetic plastic surgery. But it is important to mention that although BodyTite produces stunning results, traditional lift surgeries, including tummy tucks, arm lifts, and thigh lifts, are still the most effective method for loose skin. Liposuction remains the most effective way of eliminating excess fat. During your initial consultation, Dr. Kouris can discuss all of your options and recommend a treatment plan for you.
What is radiofrequency?
Radiofrequency (RF) is an innovative laser energy that uses electrical currents to create controlled heat through an applicator specially created by InMode. This heat is then used to carefully target and eliminate fat cells without disrupting the surrounding skin. BodyTite RF energy also helps promote collagen and elastin for tighter, healthier skin.
Is BodyTite safe?
BodyTite is a safe, FDA-approved cosmetic procedure that has become popular with both women and men. The procedure is noninvasive, and patients are able to return to their daily activities very quickly following treatment.
