Can BodyTite® Really Remove Fat Without Surgery? 

March 31, 2020

3 Minute Read:

Losing weight and working towards your body goals is a long-term commitment. While many people are able to overcome all obstacles to reach their body goals, some may reach a threshold where sheer willpower is not enough. 

Stubborn fat can turn up in several places, and virtually everyone is prone to having at least one problem area. These trouble spots are the pockets of fat that will not budge no matter how much you diet or exercise. 

If you want to get rid of this fat, but you are not comfortable with the idea of surgery or its resulting downtime, BodyTite® may be appropriate. 

What Is BodyTite®? 

BodyTite® uses radiofrequency technology to tighten the connective tissue network under the skin and liquify fat for easier removal with liposuction.

The BodyTite® procedure inserts a thin probe under the skin through a tiny incision. This internal device, when combined with an external electrode, produces an electrical circuit which creates heat in the treated area. With this technology, we are able to continually monitor the internal temperature to maximize efficacy and safety. These radiofrequency waves melt the fat under the skin, thus making it easier to remove through a cannula. 

BodyTite® can be used on one or more of the following areas: 

  • Abdomen 
  • Hips 
  • Buttocks 
  • Inner thighs 
  • Upper arms
  • Knees 
  • Back 
  • Outer thighs
  • Neck
  • Back

Following the procedure, most patients can return to regular activities within one to two weeks. Results will start to become visible immediately but will continue to develop over the next few months. 

The most developed results will be visible after six months to a year with a maintained diet and exercise. 

How Is BodyTite® Different From Other Body Contouring Procedures?

Traditional liposuction is commonly used to remove stubborn fatty deposits on the body. Although it accomplishes a similar feat, BodyTite® does not require the same invasive techniques required with liposuction. And while liposuction does remove excess fat, it does not have the added benefit of enhancing contours by tightening loose or stretched skin. Since BodyTite® is less invasive—because it liquefies the fat first, it often results in less bleeding, which speeds up your healing process.

CoolSculpting® is a non-surgical fat reduction procedure. CoolSculpting® works by freezing fat rather than removing it directly. BodyTite® is considered minimally invasive rather than non-surgical because it requires small incisions to remove the fat.

Can BodyTite® Be Combined With Other Procedures? 

BodyTite® can be combined with liposuction to remove unwanted fat further. This combination is effective for making fat removal easier and promoting the tightening and healing of the skin. Since liposuction does not remove or tighten loose skin, this combination allows for patients to achieve ideal results without a skin excision procedure. 

BodyTite® is also praised for its ability to reduce the appearance of cellulite as the skin is smoothed and tightened. This can reduce the need for any follow-up surgeries that may be required to achieve the desired contours.

After much research I decided to have tummy tuck surgery with lipo at Advanced Aesthetics in Fayetteville. From the time I booked my consultation to the days after surgery my experience has been top tier. The facility is such a gem!!! Jessica, my patient care coordinator, always returned all my calls, answered all my questions, and delivered A1customer service. Where do I even start with my doctor?… Dr. Gronka was the absolute BEST! When I met Dr. Gronka during my consultation I immediately knew this was the doctor for me! He was funny, caring to my concerns, and just all around knowledgeable and personable. The day of surgery I felt so comfortable and relaxed. The nurses and anesthesiologist were all great! The day after surgery Dr. Gronka called me personally to check and see how I was doing. I had my surgery just days before Christmas so to have him call me personally made me feel even happier with my decision. Now on to my results: I am happy with how everything is looking and healing thus far. I am only 2 weeks post-op and I feel great! I can’t wait to see how my results will improve from here. My scar is low and well placed. My belly button isn’t quite what I expected but it’s still early and at this point it doesn’t even matter I feel and look great! No more saggy loose skin and I received great care. I highly recommend Dr. Gronka and the Advanced Aesthetics team!
