What is BodyTite™ Body Contouring?

Tone your shape with BodyTite™ Body Contouring – a revolutionary non-surgical procedure that removes stubborn fat and tightens skin, giving you the look you desire.

Whether you’re hoping to trim your tum, sculpt your arms or legs, or curb a sagging bum, BodyTite™ can help you achieve your goals. This incredible procedure uses Radio Frequency energy (RF) to enhance your body’s natural contours with minimal invasion. It melts away targeted fat, while simultaneously smoothing and tightening skin. Results are permanent and procedures are entirely safe. With minimal downtime and no scarring, it is a fantastic alternative to traditional surgical liposuction, especially as it also addresses the crucial issue of skin laxity that other body contouring procedures do not.

Although BodyTite™ Body Contouring is not a weight loss program, it is very effective for toning areas that are prone to storing fat. Common areas of treatment include:

  • abdomen
  • buttocks
  • thighs and knees
  • hips
  • upper arms
  • chest and back

How does BodyTite™ work?

The term “pockets of fat” is when our bodies store fat in localised areas of the body, such as around the hips, abdomen or thighs. This fat is usually stubborn, and you may find that exercise or diet can’t get rid of it alone. Body contouring is a type of procedure for eliminating those tricky areas and restoring your natural shape. However, some body contouring treatments, including surgical liposuction, can leave you with saggy, excess skin. This will likely be more prominent as you age due to less collagen and elastin in the skin. BodyTite™ is fantastic because it addresses both concerns in a single procedure.

BodyTite™ Body Contouring uses innovative Radio Frequency (RF) technology to liquefy fat, which is then drained from the body. During procedures, our qualified doctor makes a very tiny incision in the treatment area, through which to transmit the RF energy. This not only melts down the fat cells, it has the added benefit of heating the soft tissue and stimulating the production of collagen fibres. Over time, the added collagen causes your skin to tighten, strengthen and rejuvenate for a fresher, smoother appearance.

BodyTite™ sessions are relatively quick, and last less than an hour depending on the area being treated. The liquefied fat and excess fluids are drained from the body through a tiny cannula (hollow tube). Unlike surgical liposuction, the doctor makes no large incisions and the procedure is minimally invasive.

How long does BodyTite™ take to work?

Fat is drained away during BodyTite™ procedures and you should see some visible results straight after treatment. You will then notice further improvements in the ensuing weeks and months. This is while the new collagen production continues to tighten your skin. Peak results can usually be experienced from between three to six months, although everybody is different.

What is the downtime for BodyTite™?

Unlike during surgical liposuction, no large incisions are made during BodyTite™ sessions. All procedures are minimally traumatic to your body. Downtime is relatively minimal. You may experience some soreness, bruising or swelling in the treated area. This usually lasts for a few days. Exercise and strenuous physical activities should be avoided for between 10 to 14 days after your BodyTite™ session. Our doctor will discuss with you the necessary aftercare and recuperation, and will monitor your progress in a follow-up appointment. Of course, you should always contact us if you have any concerns or questions.

How many treatments are needed for BodyTite™?

Everyone is different. How many treatments of BodyTite™ Body Contouring you require will depend on your own situation and goals. However, results are permanent. In many cases, a single procedure may be enough for your desired look. This will be discussed with you during your initial, no-obligation consultation.

Note that BodyTite™ can also be combined with other body contouring treatments or our medical weight loss clinic as part of a specialised plan. Our doctor will also help you create your own treatment plan tailored towards your own needs.

Does BodyTite™ hurt?

A local anaesthetic is applied to the treated areas to minimise any discomfort.

Any celebrity endorsements?

Yes! BodyTite™ Body Contouring has a number of celebrity fans including US fitness model and social media star Paige Hathaway, who used the treatment to tighten her abdomen following pregnancy, and US model and actress Cynthia Bailey.

It is important to adhere to the aftercare advice to ensure you get the best results from your treatment. Any questions or concerns please contact the clinic.

General Care:

  1. Antibiotics are not routinely required.
  2. Keep the steri-strip dressings on for the first day. There are no stitches as the wounds are very small. If the dressings fall off in the shower, you can leave them off but keep the area clean. The holes will have sealed by the first day. You can shower/wash straight away but wear your support garment straight after.
  3. Wear your support garment for 2 weeks while in the house. Up to 4 weeks if you can! Experience has shown that the more you stick to this, the better the result. You do not need to wear it while you are sleeping but, if you can tolerate it, it will help.
  4. If you need to, you can take routine painkillers (paracetamol but NOT IBUPROFEN or other Non-Steroidal Anti-inflammatory drugs) but this is rarely necessary.

The First Day and the Day After:

  1. The area of treatment will be swollen, and you may notice swelling spreading down from the area beneath the support garment.
  2. It is normal to feel very numb for a period of a few hours the first day.
  3. Bruising will become more obvious once the anaesthetic wears off.
  4. You will notice skin contraction in the area of treatment immediately and, if you have had fat removed, you will see a difference there on the first day.
  5. On the ‘morning after’, you may well look worse than you imagined you would! Do not worry. You may look swollen, bruised, and may still feel numb. Treated areas will feel quite tender.

The First Week:

  1. Swelling will reduce but will still be evident by the end of the first week. In some cases, the swelling can last for 6-8 weeks.
  2. Bruising will appear then start to fade, but it can be present foe 2-3 weeks.
  3. The ‘dense’ numbness of the first day will resolve but residual numbness will remain and may not recover for several weeks.
  4. Contraction of the skin in the treated area will be obvious but will not appear as drastic as the very first day. The process of skin contraction will continue for over 6 months.
  5. You may notice several small (1cm or so), firm lumps in the treated area. These are caused by the heating treatment and is an indication of future tissue contraction. Think of them as ‘spot welding’. The more you have, the better the result. They will all disappear in time over the ensuing 4-8 weeks.
  6. The treated area may still feel quite tender, as time goes by this will get better, but some patients reported that the area is tender to touch for at least 6 weeks.

3 to 6 Months:

  1. You may stop noticing any change, but it is happening! Slowly, over the passing months more collagen and elastin are being formed in the tissues which were heated during your treatment.
  2. Massage the area during this time encouraging the contracting tissue to lift. ZO Skin Health FIRMING SERUM is great for this. You can find it listed on the website here.
  3. The lumps should all be gone by the end of 3 months.
  4. By 6 months, most of the contraction will have taken place but there have been reports of continuing contraction and continuing improvement, up to 18 months.

It is important to adhere to the aftercare advise to ensure you get the best results from your treatment. Any questions or concerns please contact the clinic.

Are BodyTite™ Body Contouring results permanent?

Yes, results from BodyTite™ Body Contouring procedures are permanent. However, the normal ageing process will still slowly continue, and your body may store fat in stubborn places again. Therefore, you may wish to consider a repeat BodyTite™ Body Contouring session in the future. Note that our practitioners will always advise you on how to maintain and optimise results from your treatment.

What areas can BodyTite™ treat?

This procedure is ideal for treating a variety of areas including areas below the waist, chin, thighs and knees, hips, upper arms, ankles, neck and buttocks.  

 

How long does it take to heal from BodyTite™?

Due to the non-surgical nature of the treatment, all procedures are minimally traumatic to your body; downtime is relatively minimal and patients return to routine activities within a few days. However, it is expected that some bruising, soreness and swelling will be evident in the treated areas. This usually lasts for a few days.  

Please note that results vary from person to person due to lifestyle, external and internal factors, and genetic predispositions.
