BodyTite™ – Radiofrequency for Skin Tightening

BodyTite™ by Invasix tightens the skin and simultaneously eliminates excess fat and cellulite. It combines the advantages of radio wave frequency skin tightening and classic liposuction in only one procedure.

BodyTite™

  • tightens upper arms, neck, thighs, abdomen, sides of the back and buttocks
  • is used for body contouring and liposuction on the chin, arms, back, abdomen, thighs, hips and inner thighs
  • reduces cellulite and faciliates the treatment of special cases of lipedema

How does the procedure go?

With the BodyTite™ procedure a cannula with an attached electrode is inserted into the fat layer directly under the skin. The electrode’s radio waves generate heat in the fatty and subcutaneous tissue which works in two ways:

  • It tightens the skin’s connective tissue attachment.
  • It liquefies the fat, which is subsequently aspirated through the cannula.

Another electrode outside of the body checks the temperature in the subcutaneous tissue in order to prevent overheating.

What sort of anesthesia is necessary?

The respective areas are locally numbed with tumescent local anesthesia. To this end, a highly diluted anesthesia solution is injected into the tissue in large quantities.

The advantages of the tumescent local anesthesia for laser lipolysis:

The patient is awake and

  • can position him/herself actively on the OP table
  • can tense individual muscles
  • can stand up for a symmetry check in difficult cases
  • thanks to the basic tension of his/her muscles, the body contour can be seen in a lying position

For more information about your options for a comfortable, pain-free treatment see the anesthesia section.

When will I be able to resume my regular activities?

This can be an outpatient procedure. Depending on the circumstances in most cases the body tight treatment is part of a liposuction surgery procedure. Therefore it is recommended to stay for one night in the clinic. The exterior healing is generally complete after two to four weeks – with little physical limitations, except for a compression garment you shall wear during that time.

Dr. Gerhard Sattler: “BodyTite™ is the ideal procedure for treating widespread sagging skin, for example, after major weight loss or pregnancy.”

What else you can do

  • After treatment, our cosmetic department will be glad to recommend a special skin care program in order to make the healing process as easy as possible.
  • We also recommend lymph drainage in order to increase absorption of undesirable swelling in the first weeks after the treatment. We offer this procedure at our Rosenpark Studio.
  • You should also drink a lot of water in order to enhance metabolization during the woundhealing process.
  • For cellulite patients we recommend additional treatment with the gentle SmoothShapes® or LPG®/Endermologie methods.
