Does liposuction tighten your skin?
Traditional liposuction certainly has a long list of benefits and has helped countless men and women make stunning, life-changing transformations. Primarily, liposuction offers patients the opportunity to rid themselves of stubborn pockets of fat that are unresponsive to diet and exercise. For patients with good skin elasticity, the skin often contracts to the newly contoured figure after liposuction. However, loose skin and pronounced skin laxity are not likely to improve with liposuction alone.
For men and women who struggle with both loose skin and stubborn fat, surgical body contouring – such as liposuction plus skin removal – has traditionally been the only available solution. While this approach can provide stunning results, many patients prefer a less invasive alternative to liposuction and skin removal surgery that does not require an extended recovery period. For these patients, BodyTite may be a perfect fit.
What is BodyTite?
BodyTite is a revolutionary procedure designed to remove stubborn fat and tighten loose skin more easily and conveniently than traditional cosmetic surgery. This minimally invasive treatment utilizes radiofrequency-assisted liposuction (RFAL) to gently liquefy fat cells, making them easier to remove from the body and leaving the nearby tissues untouched. At the same time, radiofrequency energy heats the skin from within, encouraging fiber contraction and overall skin tightening. Some of the most compelling benefits of BodyTite include:
- Minimally invasive
- No general anesthesia required
- No scarring
- Minimal recovery time
- Can be used virtually head to toe
- Reduces fat and tightens skin simultaneously
How long is recovery after BodyTite?
The recovery time after BodyTite can vary from patient to patient based on how much fat was removed, how many areas were treated, and other individual factors. Most often, patients can return to work within 5 – 7 days after BodyTite and resume more strenuous activities, including exercise, after a few weeks. Like traditional liposuction recovery, the healing process for BodyTite involves compression garments, which help to reduce swelling and promote smooth, natural-looking results. After about 4 – 6 weeks, the majority of BodyTite swelling will have resolved, and patients will be able to see their slim new figure taking shape. Over the next 3 – 6 months, the full effects of BodyTite will become apparent.
By maintaining a stable weight through a healthy diet and consistent exercise routine, the results of BodyTite fat removal and skin tightening can last for many years, if not decades.
