We all do our best to maintain a fit, youthful, and healthy appearance, but as we get older this goal can become increasingly difficult. Stubborn fat and areas of loose, sagging skin can be extremely frustrating and nearly impossible to get rid of even with a healthy lifestyle. BodyTite and FaceTite are two RFAL (Radio-Frequency Assisted Lipoplasty) treatments by INMODE designed to put an end to these issues while minimizing both surgery and recovery time.
San Antonio cosmetic surgeon Dr. Elizabeth Hernandez now offers these minimally invasive body contouring treatments to men and women looking to achieve their body goals at Eterna Cosmetic Surgery. BodyTite and FaceTite heats the target area using precision radiofrequency energy to melt stubborn fat cells beneath the skin while a thin tube (cannula) gently removes it from the body. This radiofrequency heating also stimulates a natural skin tightening response from your body, leaving you with a slimmer, natural looking contour.
BodyTite can be used just about anywhere you are struggling with localized areas of fat. Dr. Hernandez can help reduce fat in common problem areas such as the stomach, arms, chest, knees, inner/outer thighs, and the hips (love handles/muffin top). Depending on your specific concerns, Dr. Hernandez can treat multiple areas in a single visit with each zone taking just 15 minutes.
1) BodyTite device is placed against the skin at the problem area.
2) Cannula is inserted into the underlying layer of fat.
3) Radiofrequency thermal energy is used to melt fat for easy removal with the cannula.
4) Problem fat is reduced while skin experiences a tightening effect.
Your specific downtime will depend on your treatment area(s) with Dr. Hernandez. You could expect a recovery period of roughly 1-10 days. Dr. Hernandez will provide you with any necessary care instructions following your treatment. A compression garment may be provided to assist with the healing process and ensure optimal results.
What Dr. Hernandez’s patients love most about BodyTite is the immediate results. Once your treatment is complete, you will notice an instant change in the shape and firmness of the treated area. Results will continue to improve with the most significant outcome at about 3-6 months.
