BodyTite Los Angeles
Doctor Vallecillos was one of the luminary practices to offer BodyTite Contour Enhancement in Beverly Hills and has since become a domain expert in BodyTite body Contouring, being distinguished as the first practice in the world to offer a combination therapy of VASER-Assisted Lipoplasty and BodyTite, creating the pinnacle of 4D high-definition liposuction.
BodyTite Contour Enhancement is a revolutionary minimally-invasive body contouring procedure that utilizes RFAL (radio-frequency assisted lipolysis) technology to safely and effectively tighten and define skin and soft-tissue while strategically removing fat in various areas of the body without the need for extensive scars.
Am I a Good Candidate for BodyTite™?
Patients with mild-to-significant skin laxity with underlying areas of fat are candidates for BodyTite. The procedure is an attractive alternative for patients who are either unwilling or who are not candidates to undergo more invasive procedures such as a tummy tuck or an arm lift, which typically require significant scars and substantial downtimes. The procedure is also excellent for treating areas of cellulite on the buttocks and thighs.
BodyTite™ Procedure Walk-Through
The BodyTite procedure consists of inserting a very fine probe under the skin through a pinhole incision, under a local anesthetic. The loose skin is then selectively treated with radio-frequency thermal energy, which creates considerable and immediate skin contracting and 3 –dimensional soft-tissue remodeling. Following the BodyTite treatment, lipoplasty is performed for optimal body contouring. BodyTite is an outpatient procedure performed under a local anesthetic and/or light sedation.
BodyTite™ Treatment Areas
Target areas for BodyTite include the abdomen, bra fat, medial thighs, buttocks, breasts, male chests, superior knee regions, calves, upper and lower back, and anywhere on the body that has loose skin with associated underlying fat.
Results from BodyTite are seen immediately. Over the course of the next 4 months following the treatment, the treated area will continue to improve and tighten through collagen remodeling, creating a more youthful, rejuvenated appearance.
BodyTite™ Post-Procedure Care
The BodyTite treatment is typically performed under local anesthesia or light sedation as an outpatient procedure. The procedure has minimal pain, swelling and redness associated with it. Procedure times will vary depending on the size of the area treated, with most typical BodyTite™ treatments requiring 1-2 hours for completion. Following the treatment, Doctor Vallecillos recommends patients to wear a compressive garment for optimal results. Patients typically return to their normal activities the next day.
