How does BodyTite treatment work?

Despite an individual's best efforts to live a healthy lifestyle and exercise regularly, it can be challenging to have the body you always wanted. BodyTite is a minimally invasive procedure that combines fat reduction methods through liposuction with the proven skin tightening qualities of radiofrequency (RF) energy, providing Louisville, KY patients with fantastic results. The radiofrequency-assisted lipolysis, or RFAL, with BodyTite allows Dr. Mizuguchi to efficiently treat moderate skin laxity and reduce stubborn pockets of fat. BodyTite is designed to heat dermal tissue within for more consistent results to tighten skin and melt fat simultaneously. It is a minimally invasive procedure that is gaining popularity every year to treat the following areas:

  • Abdomen
  • Upper arms
  • Lower back or "love handles"
  • Upper back or bra line
  • Hips
  • Thighs
  • Above the knees
  • Chest area

Who is an ideal candidate for an RFAL BodyTite procedure?

BodyTite is one of the most advanced body contouring treatments available today. It is a popular option for healthy individuals who have experienced changes to their body due to age, pregnancy, or weight fluctuations, and are looking to avoid scarring or a surgical procedure. However, it is not a weight loss answer. Ideal candidates for this minimally invasive treatment:

  • Are at or near their ideal body weight
  • Currently live a healthy, active lifestyle
  • Have a BMI (body mass index) of 30 or less
  • Set realistic expectations for what this procedure can do for them

Does radiofrequency-assisted liposuction (RFAL) work?

BodyTite uses advanced radiofrequency technology to destroy unwanted fat cells, tighten the skin, and stimulate natural collagen production, resulting in a comprehensive improvement. Unlike traditional liposuction, BodyTite treatment doesn't require a lengthy recovery period. Through micro-sized incisions, the advanced BodyTite applicator emits thermal energy into the target area to break up and liquefy stubborn pockets of fat. The heat applied during the fat removal process tightens connective tissue for visible skin-tightening results. Treatment sessions usually take about 30 – 40 minutes per area and can be performed with a local anesthetic, but general anesthesia can be provided. Afterward, most patients will wear a compression garment to help speed up the recovery process. Patients will need to rest and limit their activities for about 5 – 10 days, avoiding high-impact workouts for several weeks.
