Sometimes, there’s no avoiding the effects of genetics and getting older, regardless of the time you spend at the gym and reading food labels. You can’t tone away or spot reduce subdermal fat stores, since these sit above the muscle that you can tighten, nor can you select where your body draws fat when you’re in a calorie deficit mode.
There are times when you need additional help with your body sculpting efforts. Liposuction surgery has been the traditional method to reshape fat stores, but it has some drawbacks, including the fact that a surgical solution may be out of line with many people’s targets.
Diamond Surgical Institute offers a minimally invasive, radiofrequency-assisted body sculpting system called BodyTite for their patients who want body sculpting benefits without turning to surgery. Dr. Roya Dardashti and her team are BodyTite specialists, ready to help you fully realize the body shape you seek.
Improving on liposuction
Liposuction can be an effective body sculpting tool, but it’s something of a “brute force” procedure in many cases. A hollow wand called a cannula physically breaks up fat cells for vacuuming out of your body. The process is focused on the removal of fat only. There’s no method to address the size of fat deposits.
BodyTite uses focused radiofrequency energy to achieve its lipolysis (fat removal) effect, creating a treatment that adds fat coagulation and skin tightening to its benefits, while reducing the recovery downtime when compared with conventional liposuction.
How radiofrequency energy affects fat
The BodyTite system uses a two-part probe. The lower probe enters under your skin through tiny incisions, while the upper probe glides over your skin’s surface. During treatment, radio frequency flows between the inner and outer portions, selectively warming fat and other tissue in the treatment area.
This warming action coagulates fat once a certain temperature is achieved. Your body recognizes these coagulated cells as unable to store fat and no longer viable. Over the weeks and months following treatment, your body naturally flushes out these cells.
The warming action of radio waves also affects collagen and connective tissue in your skin, starting new collagen production and overall tightening of skin, healing mechanisms that aren’t triggered effectively by liposuction alone.
An excellent complement for liposuction
While liposuction provides dramatic fat reduction quickly, it has no facility for skin and connective tissue tightening. Combining BodyTite with liposuction gives you the best of both worlds. You see the immediate benefits of liposuction while skin tone improves over the coming weeks, along with additional fat loss through radiofrequency lipolysis.
The most common treatment areas for BodyTite include:
- Breasts (including male gynecomastia)
- Inner thighs
- Outer thighs
BodyTite may be effective with other problem spots. Discuss these with Dr. Dardashti during your consultation.
