Sometimes diet and exercise will not shift stubborn areas of fat and even if they do, skin can be loose and need a little help. We now have a fantastic solution with BodyTite™
BodyTite™ is a breakthrough body re-contouring procedure that reduces stubborn fat while simultaneously tightening and firming your body.
BodyTite works on the same principal as liposuction in as much as it removes fat, BodyTite melts the fat before it is removed to help give a smoother result. After the fat has been melted, it is removed by aspiration, this removes unwanted pockets of fat. Then radio-frequency heat is introduced under the skin to boost collagen production that leads to skin tightening.
A great option for both men and women with unwanted fat or skin laxity and do not want a excisional procedure, also excellent to smooth out the lumpy irregular appearance caused by previous liposuction.
BodyTite is ideal for many treatment areas with excess fat including: abdomen, hips, buttocks, thighs, arms, knees and neck.
Before the procedure the areas being treated will be drawn out by your doctor. Local anaesthetic will be pumped into the are through a tiny incision. Once the area is numb the BodyTite hand piece will be inserted into the fat pad to melt the fat. Once the fat is liquified it will be aspirated. Whilst the area is still numb the the radio frequency will be delivered under and on top of the skin, the heat induces collagen production which will lead to skin tightening. The the tiny incisions will be stitched, a pad will be placed over them to retain any leakage you may have for the following 24 hours. A compression garment must be worn for the first two weeks both day and night, only remove it when you shower. After 24 hours you may have a shower. Stitches are removed after ten days.

How many treatments will you need?*
Usually one treatment is sufficient but occasionally some people need two. The stitches will be removed ten days after the treatment and you will then be reviewed after six weeks, three months, six months and a year. (All the reviews are included in the cost but further treatments are chargable).
Up to three litres of fat can be removed in just one session – and up to three areas of the body can be treated (depending on the size) including, Face, Neck, Bra Spam, Upper Arms, Back Fat, Abdomen, Inner Thighs, Outer Thighs, Knees, Calves, Ankles, Male Breasts and Suprapubic Fat Pad. You will notice an improvement after the treatment with the best results visible after 3 to 6 months.
I was having excess fat removed from the outer top of my thighs with BodyTite. After filling in the necessary forms I was given some clothes to change into including disposable pants, slippers, jacket and trousers. I was given a slight sedative before the procedure and Dr Tee thoroughly and patiently explained what would be happening and answered all of my questions. When I was taken into the theatre there were two nurses, an assistant and Dr Tee waiting. Some local anaesthetic injections were applied to the site then a fluid (containing more anaesthetic) was injected which was uncomfortable but certainly not painful. After that the area is warmed (I could not feel this). Once the fat is heated it is removed with a cannula and, at times, this could be a little painful but was certainly bearable and didn’t last long. A couple of stitches are put into the incision site (which I didn’t feel at all). Pads are applied to protect and keep the area clean. Then, after dressing you are given the things you need to take home. It took about an hour to complete the procedure. It’s a good idea to have someone to help you, perhaps drive you home or at least carry your bags for you.
The aftercare instructions are really helpful and important. You are given pain killers and antibiotics to take home as well as absorbent pads (for the bed in case there is any leakage of fluid from the incision site) and new pads and swabs to replace (24 hours later) the ones applied during the procedure. It’s vitally important to wear compression pants and only to remove them when showering (bathing is not permitted until after the stitches have been removed about 10 days later).
Although the procedure is certainly uncomfortable it isn’t painful except for a very occasional ouch moment. My results were instantaneous. The pads of fat on the thighs were immediately removed in spite of the swelling caused by the procedure. This apparently takes between one and three months to fully settle but I was so delighted with the instant effect and any further improvement will be a bonus. I was surprised to find that there is only intermittent, not constant, discomfort, eg when turning over in the bed at night. I took arnica before the procedure to help with the bruising and swelling but, of course, due to the nature of the treatment there is extensive swelling and bruising however as my results were exactly what I was hoping for that’s an extremely small disadvantage.
Overall I had such a positive experience and result that I immediately booked myself in again for fat removal with BodyTite but this time for the upper and lower abdomen and feel sure I will be just as pleased with this as I have been with the results on my thighs.
