The BodyTite™ procedure uses patented RFAL ™ technology to gently melt and remove excess fat through a small incision in an inconspicuous area of the body. By pre-melting excess fat BodyTite™ allows fat to be removed gently. This gentle process of fat removal reduces patient discomfort and aids healing.
The BodyTite™ system may offer several advantages over conventional liposuction and body contouring procedures. This procedure may be especially effective for people who want to get rid of only a few ounces of body fat in areas such as the love handles, around the thighs or around the stomach. Other key benefits of the BodyTite™ body contouring system include:
The BodyTite™ device uses multiple cannulas to extract the fatty tissue from under the skin, and works with a set of electrodes that simultaneously aspirate the coagulated tissue and heat up the soft tissues around the treated area. Once the fat is liquefied, it is extracted immediately and the heat helps to tighten and shape the body within minutes.
The radio-frequency energy also coagulates adipose tissue and fibrous tissues which helps to sculpt and tone the body to the ideal shape. The clinician has the ability to watch the skin contracting throughout the procedure, and has complete control over the level of energy that is being emitted throughout the treatment with a touch-screen device. Initial trials of the BodyTite™ system show that the skin can retract by as much as 40% from a single procedure.
