BodyTite is a procedure that involves using Radiofrequency Assisted Lipolysis (RFAL) to improve the results of liposuction in specific cases. This advanced tool is used by the surgeons at Atlanta Liposuction Specialty Clinic to improve results in selected patients. At Atlanta Liposuction we are known for our skin tightening skills, and when a new technology comes along to improve it, we want to embrace it and offer it to our patients. The procedure involves using Radiofrequency Assisted Lipolysis (RFAL) to improve the results of liposuction. It can be added to our SmartLipo procedure for maximum skin tightening.
The BodyTite procedure is performed under local tumescent anesthesia through small punctures that are placed in the skin. These are the same entry points we create to do our SmartLipo and microcannular liposuction procedures. A small thin probe is then placed under the skin and another attached device is placed on top of the skin and the tissues in between are heated with radio frequency. This process is a precise and safe technique to achieve maximum skin tightening.
The Device is versatile and can be used on all areas of the body where liposuction is performed. The abdomen, arms, chest, knees and inner/outer thighs are some of the most common treatment zones of the body. Multiple areas can be treated in one visit. Each zone will add approximately 15 minutes to your liposuction case.
BodyTite gently treats fat in stubborn areas while tightening the skin, helping you sculpt your body into its ultimate shape. It is a minimally invasive treatment and goes very well with large and small areas of liposuction.
Results can be seen immediately after the procedure and will continue to improve for months to follow. Documented improvement has continued in some patients up to 12 months, but usually in 6 months optimal results will be achieved.
Depending on the treatment area, downtime can be from 1-2 days up to 10 days. It will be longer if this procedure is combined with a large area of liposuction and is used to get maximum skin tightening in patients that do not want to undergo an invasive surgical procedure such as a Tummy Tuck.
FaceTite is a new procedure that is comparable to a surgical facelift, without the scars.
FaceTite provides dramatic improvement in skin laxity on the face and neck, which was previously only attainable through a surgical procedure such as a facelift. FaceTite utilizes minimally invasive radio-frequency energy to melt fat and tighten skin.
FaceTite is a minimally invasive procedure performed under local tumescent anesthesia. A small device is used, and it involves placing a probe under the skin, and by using precise temperature monitoring technology the skin is heated along with the subcutaneous tissue to stimulate collagen growth and tighten the skin. Post procedure, patients can go home and resume regular activities in a few days. Patients are required to wear a compression garment for comfort and to achieve optimal results.
Any areas on the mid face and neck with saggy skin can be treated. This includes the double chin, jowls and other areas with deep lines and loose skin.
By avoiding an excisional facelift procedure, patients will be scar free and will benefit from reduced post-procedural swelling and discomfort. This is a less traumatic process with a natural looking result. It does not give the same result as a facelift, but it provides significant improvement without the extensive downtime and risk of surgical complications.
Most patients see results immediately, with the best results noticeable after 6 months. Results can continue to improve up to 12 months after the procedure has been performed.
