Stubborn fat that does not respond to diet and exercise can leave you feeling insecure and frustrated. Hormone changes, genetics, aging, lifestyle, and stress can all cause stubborn fat deposits to hang on, even with your best efforts at becoming healthy Sometimes, you need a little extra help to achieve the toned, tight body you have worked so hard for or don’t want to work for.
At Aesthetic Medicine, our goal is to provide our Portland patients with minimally invasive treatment options that use the latest technology to provide superior, natural-looking results. For patients seeking help with body contouring or sculpting, but who want to avoid the risks and downtime of surgery, we are pleased to offer BodyTite Portland Procedures. This innovative treatment provides superior results without the risks and discomfort of surgical procedures.
BodyTite is a minimally invasive body contouring procedure that uses radiofrequency-assisted lipolysis that liquefies fat deep within the body and tightening the skin up to 37%. The liquefied fat cells are then removed by way of suction. The incisions remaining are very small and do not end up scarring. No drains are necessary after the procedure. The heat from this process also stimulates and restructures collagen to help tighten the skin. The end result is reduced fat deposits and tight, toned skin, all without large incisions and obvious scarring. We are able to deliver this procedure minimally invasively without the cost and downtime associated with surgery.
What areas can be treated? Bodytite can treat larger areas of the body such as the abdomen, breasts, thighs, love handles, bra bulge and more.
How many treatments are needed? Typically one treatment is all that is needed however, some patients depending on their baseline or patients with a high BMI and desired result may want or require two sessions. Most people only require one. Results can be seen immediately but best results are noticeable after 6 weeks and continuing up to 12 months.
The BodyTite system provides several benefits over other similar treatment options. These include:
When you come to Aesthetic Medicine for BodyTite, we will greet you and get you settled. You will first meet with Dr. Zawacki who will mark the area and explain what to expect. The first step is numb the area by injecting with a localized numbing solution, tumescent. Then, we will make a small incision to insert the BodyTite hand piece underneath the skin. Using radiofrequency energy, we will melt away your fat and tighten the skin. Through the same incision we will suction out the fat cells. After we have finished you will then be able to go home with your designated driver. You will be able to return home the same day as your procedure.
For the next few weeks, you will wear a compression garment to help the area recover well. You may experience some swelling and bruising, but these should be minimal. Most patients can return to work or other activities within a few days, and results will be fully visible within six months to a year after treatment. BodyTite results are permanent because the fat cells are destroyed and removed.
Our center is dedicated to providing you with the least invasive treatment options that provide excellent results. For body contouring, BodyTite does just that.
