BodyTite Liposuction RFAL vs Liposuction

What began with traditional liposuction procedures has grown significantly to include many different kinds of fat reduction and body contouring treatments. No longer do you need to bare the noticeable scars of standard liposuction procedures, thanks in large part to minimally invasive procedures such as BodyTite radiofrequency assisted liposuction. This monumental procedure is able to remove fat tissue while tightening the skin around the treatment area. Here is how BodyTite Liposuction stands up to standard liposuction.

BodyTite Liposuction RFAL

Radiofrequency assisted liposuction has gained in popularity over the years after tremendous success rates have been seen. BodyTite has been approved by the FDA since 2016, ensuring a standard of safety. RFAL uses radiofrequency waves to “melt” fat tissue before it is removed by suction through a small incision. The small incision will be virtually unnoticeable following the procedure, so you do not have a significant amount of scar tissue left over.

Not only does RFAL reduce fat tissue, but it also improves the elasticity of your skin by renewing collagen production and making your skin tighter. This ideal side effect makes BodyTite an ideal procedure for individuals of a variety of body shapes. The one patient type who would not benefit as much from BodyTite Liposuction is people with loose skin where the benefit would not be great enough to treat.

With the BodyTite procedure, trained professionals will be able to contour your body and give you the shape you have always wanted. Most individuals who receive BodyTite will only need to rest during a recovery period of a few days. Not a bad trade off for the many benefits of BodyTite!

Standard Liposuction

More advanced forms of liposuction such as BodyTite have made traditional techniques a thing of the past. Standard liposuction procedures are best designed for individuals who do not need any skin tightening or body contouring such as younger, in-shape patients. Not all of us are built that way and cannot benefit from fat reduction alone. Standard liposuction procedures remove fat tissue through larger incisions that in turn leave more scar tissue and take weeks to heal. For those looking to remove larger quantities of fat tissue, standard liposuction might be the best option to choose. While BodyTite Liposuction can remove fat tissue and contour your body, it cannot remove as much fat tissue as a standard liposuction procedure.

Combine Both Procedures to Get the Benefits of Each One

Some patients need both maximum fat removal for body sculpting and the maximum skin tightening they can get without an open surgery. They are great candidates for combining BodyTite with tumescent liposuction. The procedures work great together because they both only need local anaesthesia. They both only need small skin punctures so they don’t leave large scars. When you combine the two procedures, you get nearly the same results of an open surgery like a tummy tuck or arm lift without the long recovery period, the need for general anaesthesia or the large scar.
