Stubborn areas of fat can be treated by Body-jet® liposuction. Body-jet® is a gentle form of fat removal, causing less trauma than more traditional methods of liposuction. This water-jet assisted procedure washes away the fat without damaging blood vessels and nerves reducing swelling and bruising resulting in a faster recovery period. The results will be smoother, without imperfections such as dimpling that can result from traditional liposuction.
BodyTite is Radio Frequency Assisted Liposuction (RFAL). The radio frequency is used to heat and rupture fat cells, which melt away. At the same time as reducing the adipose cells the radio frequency concurrently smooths and firms the skin.
Q: How is it done?
BodyTite liposuction is a surgical procedure where small incisions are made strategically into your body that gives access to insert a cannula. BodyTite heats the adipose layer creating lipolysis and at the same time the radio frequency contracts the skin. High power suction is used to remove the melted fat cells.
