In this blog we’ll explore: 

  • Benefits of BodyTite 
  • How long it takes to recover from BodyTite 
  • The recovery process from BodyTite 


Benefits of BodyTite Procedures 

While traditional liposuction has been a longtime staple for removing localized body fat, the addition of RF energy in BodyTite presents superior body contouring that addresses lax skin, or saggy skin, which is often a concern after surgical liposuction. 

BodyTite procedures have become increasingly popular due to the many benefits of radio-frequency assisted liposuction:

  • Fat Reduction and Body Contouring: BodyTite is an effective method for removing excess fat and sculpting the body. It uses Radiofrequency-Assisted Lipolysis (RFAL) technology to target and melt away fat cells, resulting in improved body contour and definition. The procedure specifically targets problem areas such as the abdomen, love handles, thighs, arms, and neck. 
  • Skin Tightening: In addition to fat reduction, BodyTite also provides skin tightening abilities. The RFAL technology stimulates collagen production, which helps to tighten the skin structure and improve its elasticity. This can be particularly beneficial for individuals who have skin sagging or wrinkly skin as a result of weight loss, aging, or childbirth. 
  • Minimally Invasive: BodyTite is a minimally invasive procedure that requires only tiny incisions for the insertion of the cannula and the radiofrequency probe. The procedure can be performed under local anesthesia or mild sedation, reducing the risks and downtime associated with traditional liposuction. 
  • Faster Recovery: Compared to traditional liposuction, BodyTite offers a faster recovery time. Most patients can resume their normal activities within a few days to a week after the procedure, depending on the extent of the treatment. This allows you to return to normal activities within a few days, making BodyTite a convenient option for those with busy schedules. 


What is the BodyTite Recovery Period Like? 

Compared to other body contouring procedures, BodyTite offers minimal downtime, however, the recovery period will still vary from person to person and depends on the individual’s healing capabilities and the extent of the treatment. 

Day 1-2 

Although a less-invasive procedure, BODYtite does imply a few days of downtime, which you should dedicate to resting and replenishing your strength. You will experience fatigue for the first 24 hours, during which you should rest to allow your body to heal appropriately. 

The levels of discomfort you are about to experience for the first two days should be minimal and easily manageable with Tylenol. In the case of less-tolerable pain levels, however, you must contact our office immediately. 

A compression garment must be worn in the following weeks to minimize swelling and help with the skin contraction process. The garment should be worn consistently, even while sleeping or engaging in light activities. 


Day 3-7 

Within a week after your procedure, you will return to our office for your first routine check-up, during which Dr. Sadeghi will assess your recovery process and give careful guidance. 

It is recommended to get enough movement to help prevent blood clotting. For the first two weeks, avoiding hot tub baths and swimming is essential to ensure your incisions have enough time to heal. 

Smoking and drinking alcohol are strictly forbidden during your recovery process. 


Day 8-14 

Your strength will gradually recover and be able to resume low-impact activities. Vigorous exercise, however, depends on Dr. Sadeghi’s approval – depending on your recovery process, you may return to running or weight training after two weeks.

When Will I See My Results from BodyTite? 

Results can be seen directly after treatment, however, some swelling and bruising will linger for the weeks following.  

You will notice continual improvements in skin laxity and your skin shapes and forms to your body post-fat removal. The collagen stimulation from the radiofrequency energy used in the BodyTite device will continue to rejuvenate the overlying skin for weeks. 

After this time, you can fully enjoy your results, revealing your newly sculpted body and skin tightness.
