Following a strict diet and exercising regularly isn’t always enough to rid the body of stubborn deposits of fat. These fat deposits linger around the abdomen, buttocks and upper arms no matter how much you might try to train and diet them away. Feeling and looking out of shape can drastically affect your self-esteem, especially when you have been working so hard without getting the desired results. Thankfully, at Brandon Plastic Surgery, we have an aesthetic procedure available that can remove these stubborn pockets of fat.

What is BodyTite?

BodyTite is a state-of-the-art, noninvasive fat-reduction procedure that is highly effective for destroying pockets of fat in key areas of the body. Fat reduction procedures have been improved upon in recent years, and BodyTite is one of the finest results of these collective improvements. Innovative technology is used to accomplish what liposuction commonly does, but without the invasiveness and scars that are common with liposuction and other invasive fat-reduction procedures.

How Does BodyTite Work?

The technology that powers the BodyTite procedure is known as radiofrequency-assisted lipolysis (RFAL). Radiofrequency (RF) energy is an electromagnetic wave frequency that produces thermal energy. This energy (heat) penetrates areas of the body that it’s applied to.

Lipolysis is the breakdown of fats that leads to the release of various fatty acids. In other words, the heat energy that is applied to areas of the body with stubborn fat deposits causes a chemical reaction that leads to the breakdown of the fat.

Once the fat has been broken down, the body no longer recognizes it as fat, but as a foreign substance. The liver metabolizes this broken-down fat and eliminates it from the body the way it does with other bodily wastes. This is perfectly natural, and it’s guaranteed to happen once enough time has passed after the BodyTite procedure. The result will be the shapely figure you have been trying so hard to achieve.

BodyTite Procedure Basics

Before the BodyTite treatment, our physicians will numb the areas to be treated with a local anesthetic as well as epinephrine. Epinephrine is a chemical that constricts blood vessels and decreases bleeding while helping with the breakdown of the fat deposits. Thermal energy will be applied underneath and above the skin during the procedure, heating the layers of skin from opposite ends.

When the fat deposits harden and swell slightly, this is a sign that the fat has been destroyed on a molecular level and will be removed from the body in time. Once the fat has made its way out of the body, the skin in these areas will tighten to a noticeable extent. This means that bodily fat is removed and skin is tightened with one noninvasive procedure. These are the reasons BodyTite is being hailed as the new go-to procedure for fat reduction and body sculpting.

You should continue to exercise and eat healthy meals regularly before and after the procedure. BodyTite is designed to help you get the body you want, but it’s not the solution on its own.
