BodyTite is a minimally invasive body contouring procedure that delivers results previously only achieved through more excisional surgical procedures. Powered by directional radiofrequency (RF), BodyTite provides contraction of the dermis, subdermal connective tissue, and adipose tissue coagulation. This technology builds a temperature profile that provides different treatment modalities for each tissue layer, from the deep fat layer up to the skin’s surface.
Micro Lipo, used immediately following the BodyTite procedure, safely removes and reshapes fat deposits to naturally contour problem areas and remove excess fat. Larimar Med is one of a small group of med spas credentialed to provide this revolutionary treatment.
Treatment areas include:
• Love Handles
• Inner and Outer Thighs
Immediately following your procedure, you will be dressed in a compression garment to be worn for 2-4 days, or however long you would like to continue. Since no general anesthesia is used, you will be able to walk out on your own. Most patients feel tender and sore in the treated areas as if they had worked out extensively, but this discomfort resolves within a few days after the procedure. In general, patients feel good enough to return to work within 48 hours.
Prior to your procedure, we will provide you with oral medications to assist in preventing nausea, calming nerves, and easing any discomfort.
Micro Lipo with BodyTite utilizes Tumescent Anesthesia, a mixture of IV fluids, lidocaine, and epinephrine, to numb the surgical area and keep you comfortable. The epinephrine decreases bleeding and facilitates fat removal. This solution is injected directly into the unwanted fat, saturating the fat cells and causing them to swell and harden, making them easier to remove. During the procedure, the melted fat is aspirated from the body. Remaining fat may dissolve or be eliminated naturally.
Results are consistent and substantial due to three- dimensional tissue contraction. Initial volume loss is experienced immediately, with skin tightening results seen as early as two weeks. Impressive results become noticeable in 3-6 months. The vibration used in Micro Lipo, which stimulates the skin and surrounding cells during the procedure, provides skin tightening and contouring results that continue to improve 6-12 months following the procedure.
No. Fat reduction with Micro Lipo is permanent.
Immediately following the procedure, you will wear your garment 24 hours a day for the first 2-4 days unless showering. Once the drainage has stopped then you will wear it for another 24 hours. After that last 24 hours, it is up to you on continuing to wear the garment or not. If you find it more comfortable on, then you may continue, but it is not necessary for results.
Generally, individuals who are in good health yet struggle with fatty areas of the body that are resistant to working out and dieting are great candidates for this procedure. Additionally, individuals who have experienced weight fluctuations, pregnancy, and natural aging see great benefits as well.
