What Is BodyTite?
Most people have both loose skin and regions of excessive fat on their body that they would like to correct without surgical liposuction and an invasive body lift. BodyTite is an innovative minimally invasive liposuction treatment that also tightens your skin with minimal recovery time. The RFAL (radiofrequency-assisted liposuction) in BodyTite allows Dr. Richard Welch to efficiently help his patients in Bowling Green, KY improve their body shape. BodyTite is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to safely eliminate fat and tighten skin without scars for quick results.

Am I A Good Candidate for BodyTite?
A treatment with BodyTite can help if you want to see better contours and skin tightness in one or multiple areas of your body. You may be a candidate to get BodyTite if you want to eliminate pockets of fat and enhance the look of sagging, wrinkled skin. You might have considered body lift surgery or traditional liposuction, but would rather minimize surgical scarring and recovery time. Most regions of the body can be treated with BodyTite; however, a few of the common regions patients would like help with are the stomach, arms, chest, knees, and thighs. In your consultation, Dr. Welch will listen to your needs and goals before helping you determine if BodyTite is best for you.
What Should I Expect with BodyTite?
BodyTite is usually done with local anesthesia; however, general anesthesia may be used if you're nervous or getting several areas treated. The advanced BodyTite applicator is inserted through three-millimeter incisions in your skin. The applicator has an external and internal thermometer that will protect you from burns. Dr. Welch will use the applicator to liquefy and loosen the fat with radiofrequency waves so that the fat can be easily suctioned out of your body. The heat used throughout the fat removal will tighten your skin and connective tissue for immediate skin contraction. BodyTite therapies generally take around 30 – 45 minutes for each area treated. Multiple sessions might be recommended by Dr. Welch to deliver your best outcomes. You'll have to recover for 5 – 10 days after your BodyTite treatment. A compression garment needs to be worn over the treated areas to promote healing while maintaining your new shape. Some results can be visible instantly; however, your final results will not be apparent for several months when the swelling and inflammation subside. Even though the removed fat can't grow back, the remaining fat may become bigger if you gain weight; therefore, it's crucial to keep a healthy, steady weight after your BodyTite procedure.

What does radiofrequency-assisted liposuction mean?
Radiofrequency-assisted liposuction (often referred to RFAL) is a modern cosmetic procedure combining fat removal and skin tightening. It uses radiofrequency energy to melt fat cells, making them easier to suction out. Simultaneously, this energy stimulates collagen production in the skin, leading to a tighter, smoother appearance. It's a less invasive alternative to traditional liposuction, offering fat reduction and skin rejuvenation benefits in one go.
Is BodyTite safe?
Yes. As an FDA-approved option, BodyTite is a safe treatment popular with both men and women. The procedure is minimally invasive and most individuals can return to everyday habits soon after treatment. More strenuous activities can start after about a week, although this may differ from patient to patient.
How long do the results last?
The results from BodyTite are notably long-lasting. Once fat cells are removed, they don't come back. However, maintaining results is contingent upon a stable weight and healthy lifestyle. While the fat cells are permanently eliminated, existing fat cells can still enlarge if one gains weight. The skin-tightening effects, stemming from stimulated collagen production, can persist for several years. However, natural aging processes will continue, which might influence the skin's appearance over time.
