The days of inpatient surgery and overnight hospital recovery for liposuction are long gone. At SurgiCare Arts & Aesthetics, we offer the most advanced, innovative cosmetic technology on the market. Our non-invasive treatment alternative to liposuction has been dubbed “lunchtime lipo”. Most procedures can be done under mild sedation or no sedation at all. In addition, patients enjoy an expedited recovery time.
Liposuction Alternative: BodyTite™
BodyTite™ is another option to address excess fat without surgery. It involves a small probe inserted under the skin and the radio frequency energy that melts away fat. Up to three areas can be treated at once and it is effective on the back, stomach, ankles, legs, and bottom.
What Are Pros & Cons of BodyTite™?
BodyTite™ not only removes stubborn fat but also tightens loose skin. Only one treatment is necessary to achieve the desired results. However, best results are seen between three and six months later when everything has settled and new collagen has formed in the skin. Another disadvantage is that the procedure involves stitches where the probe is inserted and up to a week’s recovery time. Plus, you may need to wear compression garments for two weeks.
BodyTite™ is a great non-invasive alternative to traditional liposuction. If you are concerned about excess body fat, schedule a free virtual consultation with Dr. Angelina to discover if you are a good candidate for it.
