BodyTite Body sculpting and skin tightening in one procedure
While diet and exercise are at the heart of staying fit, sometimes it just isn't enough. Stubborn areas can remain around your abdomen, hips, buttocks, inner and outer thighs, arms, knees and neck. Board certified Louisville plastic surgeon, Dr. Julene B. Samuels, is pleased to offer a full suite of procedures, including BodyTite, that expertly sculpt and contour the body without excessive downtime. BodyTite is an FDA approved minimally invasive procedure which gently emulsifies and removes unwanted fat resulting in effective body contouring and significant skin contraction. That means a slim, trim and smooth you.
Quick & Effective Radiofrequency Assisted Liposuction
BodyTite is one of the most advanced new treatments to sculpt the body without the need for surgery. For most men and women, BodyTite can be carried out under local "awake" anesthesia. For larger areas, or multiple areas, Dr. Samuels may recommend in-office IV sedation. We begin by making a tiny 3mm incision into which a cannula is placed to deliver focused radio-frequency energy to liquefy targeted fat which is then gently suctioned away. The radiofrequency energy is delivered precisely where needed without damaging surrounding tissue. At the same time an external electrode slides along the surface of the skin to measure temperature and heat the dermis uniformly which aids in collagen remodeling and skin tightening.
Patients will see substantial body contouring with the added benefit of skin tightening. Results can be seen immediately with most noticeable results after 6 months. Multiple areas can be treated in a single visit with each area taking approximately 30-45 minutes. Downtime is typically 1-2 days but can be up to 10 depending on the treatment area.
The patient benefits are many:
- Minimally invasive procedure
