Could BodyTite be Right for You?

We all want to look and feel our best and, now that summer is here, we may be wondering how we can fast-track some weight loss and body contouring. We cannot underestimate the value of a healthy lifestyle. Still, there are some areas of fat that just don’t seem to give much mind to what we do on a daily basis. BodyTite can pick up where the good habits leave off. This nonsurgical, minimally-invasive treatment is designed to strategically eliminate unwanted fat while simultaneously tightening the overlying skin. Who doesn’t like the sound of that?

Why Would I Want BodyTite?

Excess fat and loose skin may occur for a number of reasons. It could be pregnancy or weight loss. It could simply be that the body changes when we get older. Surgery has always been a good option for eliminating fat that just won’t let go of the body. However, it’s no surprise that many people have wanted an even more conservative modality than liposuction and abdominoplasty. A few years ago, the FDA cleared the BodyTite platform for this purpose. We cannot say that BodyTite is an alternative to a tummy tuck for every person. We can say, though, that this procedure has been achieving consistent results for patients with a mild to moderate amount of excess fat and loose skin. 

How BodyTite Works

BodyTite is an office procedure that is performed using local anesthetic. A few injections of medication into the treatment area achieves ultimate comfort. To sculpt the target area, Dr. Altamira inserts a special applicator through a tiny incision. The internal arm of the applicator is hollow and suctions out unwanted fat. There is also an external arm that is parallel to the internal one. This arm has a probe at the end that emits radiofrequency waves. This energy liquefies fat cells and it also stimulates tightening in the deeper layers of the skin. The outcome is smooth and consistent. 

BodyTite is not right for every person seeking to improve their body contours. However, for those who are near their goal weight and can commit to the healthy habits it takes to maintain their results, this procedure may be the ideal solution to unwanted fat. BodyTite can be performed on the:

  • Upper arms
  • Stomach
  • Chest
  • Flanks
  • Knees
  • Thighs

Your dream body does not have to be out of reach, nor does it have to require hours in the gym every day. Call 713-271-9000 to schedule a consultation in our Houston or Sugar Land office.
