BodyTite Before & After Case 186
*Keep in mind that each patient is unique and your results may vary.
This is a 52-year-old female who wanted to reduce the excess skin in her stomach. After multiple pregnancies, the skin was left stretched and aggressive gym activities did nothing to improve it. While a more aggressive tummy tuck would eliminate the excess skin, she did not want the scars and the downtime time that were associated with that procedure. She needed a minimally invasive procedure with minimal downtime.
We were able to offer her the latest "state of the art" procedure to help her attain her goals. Bodytite is RFAL (radiofrequency assisted lipolysis) which will dissolve the fat with heat and directly shrink the skin at the same time! It is a much better option than liposuction because the fat is dissolved by the heat and not aggressively reduced by suction. The suction will lead to contour deformities such as rippling and dimpling. Since the fat is gently dissolved, the potential for contour deformity is essentially eliminated! Also, liposuction does not directly shrink the skin...the skin shrinks over time as a secondary effect. In Bodytite the heat will directly shrink the skin! This is all done under local anesthesia in the office!
She is seen in the post procedure photographs at 5 weeks. The skin will continue to shrink for 6 months after the procedure so her result will continue to improve. She was back to her usual activities in 3 days with minimal swelling and bruising.
She loves her result and is elated that she could obtain this improvement without the need for aggressive surgery!
