BodyTite vs Lipo: Which Should You Choose?

We all want to look our best but doing so may require a little extra work. If you are not seeing the results you want with regular dieting and exercise, you may need a treatment to help you get rid of unwanted fat. One of the easiest ways to get rid of any unwanted fat tissue is through liposuction. This treatment can easily remove pockets of fat tissue but can leave behind loose skin. Areas where liposuction is often performed such as the inner thighs, upper arms, and lower abdomen can all leave behind unwanted loose skin. Not only is loose skin unsightly to look at but can also leave you with wrinkles and other indentations. To lose unwanted fat tissue without having loose skin left behind, you may want to consider BodyTite. This new procedure has only been around since 2016 and is already an extremely popular treatment option. It uses many of the same techniques as traditional liposuction but with some added benefits.

How It Works

Regular liposuction works by removing fat tissue through a tiny cannula that is inserted into the treated area through a small incision. This procedure is minimally invasive, allowing the patient to experience an expedited recovery. As mentioned, liposuction can leave you with loose skin that can be extremely difficult to remove. BodyTite works in a similar fashion to liposuction but with some added steps. The fat tissue is removed the same through a small cannula. The fat tissue is virtually melted allowing it to be easily removed through suction. But it’s the skin tightening process that makes BodyTite stand apart from regular liposuction. As the fat tissue is being removed, a dual probe handheld device is used to deliver radio wave energy. These directed energy waves work with combined heat to tighten the skin cells in the treated area. This leaves the area without wrinkles that is often found from traditional liposuction.

Procedure Benefits

Traditional liposuction can provide you with fat loss when regular dieting and exercise haven’t made the cut. It’s a great way to slim down and look great. As mentioned, traditional liposuction has good benefits such as a short recovery time due to the minimal invasiveness of the procedure. Traditional liposuction can also be completed in as little as an hour. These benefits show why traditional liposuction is still a preferred method of fat reduction. However, traditional liposuction can also leave you with unwanted loose skin.

To avoid any possible loose skin, you should choose BodyTite as your preferred treatment. BodyTite uses a state-of-the-art energy technology to reinvigorate collagen production in your skin. This allows your skin to remain tight instead of developing loose areas that can occur with traditional liposuction. Additionally, your skin will be more elastic and improve the overall contour of your body. BodyTite can be done in the same day and with local anesthetic so you remain comfortable from start to finish. Lengthy hospital stays often see patients have greater risk to develop infections. The energy waves used for the procedure are directed with a handheld device allowing greater accuracy. This type of technology ensures our patients are at minimal risk for any swelling or bruising following the procedure.

Cost of Liposuction and BodyTite

The cost of BodyTite and traditional liposuction can vary depending on how much fat tissue is being removed in addition to the number of treatments needed. We offer a variety of payments to ensure your treatment plan does not get delayed.

General Risks Associated with Liposuction and BodyTite

Both traditional liposuction and BodyTite offer an incredible benefit of removing stubborn fat tissue. Anytime there is any incisions involved with a procedure there will be certain risks. Fortunately, BodyTite reduces any possible risks by continued monitoring of your body temperature. This allows us to ensure you do not experience any pain. Our patients typically only feel a warming sensation instead of pain. All of this allows your body to heal in a fraction of the time and get you back to regular activities.
