Candidates for BodyTite® Houston and Lake Jackson, TX
BodyTite® is the perfect procedure for busy Houston and Lake Jackson patients with mild to moderate skin laxity because the downtime is less than with a tummy tuck, brachioplasty or other excisional procedures. Similar to liposuction, BodyTite® works better for patients who have mild to moderate skin laxity and who are not overweight. Patients who want to undergo this procedure should have a healthy lifestyle to maintain the results.
During the procedure, thermal energy is emitted through a cannula, underneath the skin, through a tiny incision made in the treatment area. The heat energy liquifies fat and incites collagen formation of the skin. This results in skin contraction and a more toned appearance. To help patients avoid pain, a local anesthetic is applied to the treatment area. Patients will notice an improvement in the skin immediately, however, they will see a continuous improvement over the following several weeks. Patients will be able to see the final results after several months, but the procedure does not require touch-up procedures. To get better volume reduction, the procedure is sometimes combined with liposuction.
BodyTite® is minimally invasive, but you might experience some redness, swelling, soreness and bruising after the treatment. These symptoms should reduce within 1-2 weeks. Although the results of BodyTite® are permanent, we recommend that you maintain a healthy lifestyle to prevent future weight gain.
