One person may have a thin waist, but a disproportionate amount of fat on the back of their arms. One person may benefit from the extra weight in their buttocks, which contributes nicely to their hourglass figure, but then suffers from disproportionate fat deposits around their knees. Unfortunately, we all seem to have disproportionate stores of fat crop up in the least desirable areas. We all gain and retain weight in different areas and sometimes the fat is not responsive to diet and exercise.
Traditionally, one of the only options for reshaping areas of stubborn fat deposits was liposuction. Liposuction is a major surgery that carries the risk of bleeding, infection, and unsightly scars. In addition, liposuction has unpleasant side effects such as severe bruising and inflammation. You also have to deal with stitches, bandages, and incision draining. Due to the nature of the surgery, there is also an increased possibility of dimpling or sagging after the procedure, particularly with older patients who have lost skin elasticity.
One of the first alternatives to liposuction was CoolSculpting. CoolSculpting freezes the targeted fat cells, these fat cells crystallize and, over time, your body naturally eliminates them. CoolSculpting works great at removing fat, but it only minimally tightens the skin.
Be Medispa now offers a new answer to the excess fat problem: BodyTite. BodyTite is a minimally invasive procedure that shapes, tightens, and lifts. BodyTite both reduces excess fat in the treatment area and tightens the overlying skin.
BodyTite uses radio-frequency energy to dissolve stubborn fat deposits and to contract and tighten the skin for a smooth, youthful tone. BodyTite allows Dr. Hester precise control in modifying skin contours, and its fast-acting, uniform heat gently tightens the skin for seamless results. Because BodyTite is less invasive than other surgical body-contouring treatments, it is accompanied by a faster recovery and less post-procedure discomfort.
