BodyTite Fat Reduction is a minimally-invasive body contouring procedure that reduces fat while tightening the skin. In many cases, this technology delivers better results than traditional surgical fat removal procedures such as liposuction. Your doctor can use the BodyTite device to target specific fat deposits in problem areas such as around the stomach, neck, and love handles.
When compared to fat freezing procedures like CoolSculpting, BodyTite offers mostly similar results with a few exceptions. Because BodyTite melts fat with radiofrequency energy, it also stimulates collagen production in your skin, giving your skin a younger, more toned look. CoolSculpting treatments come with a higher risk of bruising but also can leave the skin lumpy and sagging.
Liposuction procedures, on the other hand, usually require a long recovery period, due to their more invasive nature. Additionally, many people are under the impression that liposuction is a quick cure to get rid of fat, but it can have some undesired side effects which include:
- Dimpled or bumpy skin
- Bruising, pain, swelling
- Scarring of the skin
- Changes or loss of skin feeling from nerve damage
- Skin pigment changes
- Depressions or indentations in the skin
- New fat deposits in new areas with weight gain
