We all want to look and feel our best. Diet and exercise are the essential requirements for staying fit and healthy. However, as we all know, diet and exercise resistant fat and aging skin defy even
our best attempts to get the ideal result.
The answer is BODYtite.
BODYtite is a non-surgical and minimally invasive reshaping procedure designed to remove stubborn fat and simultaneously re-contour the body and tighten the overlying skin. BODYtite
uses an advanced technology called RFAL™ (Radio Frequency Assisted LipoTightening) to create a safe, less traumatic and more advanced body contouring solution. Best of all, it takes
place in the office without general anesthesia.
HOW DOES IT REMOVE FAT?
BODYtite uses patented RFAL technology to gently melt and remove excess fat through a tiny incision. BODYtite can remove fat deposits and re-contour your body. In some cases, Bodytite is
combined with suction-assisted liposuction to produce an even more dramatic result. By pre-melting the fat, the removal is a less traumatic and reduces the pain and swelling afterwards, and alleviates the discomfort that typically accompanies traditional liposuction alone.
HOW DOES IT TIGHTEN SKIN?
BODYtite safely and accurately heats the tissues being reshaped. This deep heating combines with radiofrequency to create tightening and strengthening of the collagen in the dermis (the deeper part of the skin).
WHAT KIND OF AFTER-CARE IS NEEDED?
Patients report very little post-procedure discomfort, and rarely need more than Tylenol. Dr Kirwan and his staff will advise you on when to resume physical activity on a case-by-case basis, but you can expect to return to normal activity in as little as 5 days. A compression garment is used after surgery.
HOW LONG BEFORE I SEE RESULTS?
Results are seen immediately once swelling subsides, with 80% of improvement visible at 3 months and continuing over the following 3-6 months.
WHICH AREAS ARE SUITABLE FOR BODYtite?
Abdomen, hips (iliac crests), flanks, buttocks, thighs, knees, upper arms, back and other areas of fat deposits. It may also be used to improve and extend the results of tummy tucks and body lifts.
