Do you live in Brentwood, Franklin, the greater Nashville area, or other towns in Tennessee and are considering BodyTite™? Dr. Lodge and the staff at Cool Springs MD will provide you with the necessary information so you can make an informed decision about your treatment options.
What is BodyTite™?
BodyTite™ is a treatment method that is similar to liposuction. However, compared to liposuction, it is a minimally invasive, non-surgical procedure that provides skin tightening benefits in addition to fat reduction. BodyTite™ is a fat reduction procedure that utilizes radiofrequency energy to prevent saggy skin, which is the most common problem that occurs with traditional liposuction. It can also be used for those dealing with loose skin, particularly after large amounts of weight loss. BodyTite™ is particularly effective in trouble areas in the abdomen and legs (like love handles and thighs) and arms.
How Much Does BodyTite™ Cost?
BodyTite™ treatment costs vary depending on multiple factors, and here at Cool Springs MD, we tailor the treatment variables to your individual needs. To obtain a better estimate of the expected costs, please schedule a consultation with Dr. Lodge.
Am I a Candidate for BodyTite™?
If you are an individual with fat that you would like to remove, particularly in the abdomen, legs, or arms, you are a candidate for BodyTite™. If you are concerned about your previous medical history causing an issue with the procedure, you can always discuss this with Dr. Lodge to make sure that the procedure can be performed safely.
How is BodyTite™ Performed?
BodyTite™ is performed in our office. The treatment utilizes a small incision in the desired area(s) and utilizes radiofrequency energy to provide benefits in both the exterior and interior of the skin. BodyTite™ places this energy directly on the skin and through the incision site with a small probe, using the two-way delivery method to more effectively reduce fat and help tighten the surrounding skin.
What is Recovery Like After BodyTite™?
Although BodyTite™ is not a major surgical procedure, it does involve a few small incisions, and because of this, there is some downtime. Depending on the size and location of the area(s) you want treated, recovery can last from two to ten days. You can get back to most of your previous activities. For those with more vigorous exercise regimens, you will have to wait 4-6 weeks to resume more strenuous exercises. Recovery is still minimal compared to other surgical treatment options.
How Long Will My BodyTite™ Results Last?
You will notice an immediate difference following the procedure, and long-term results can be seen in anywhere between six weeks continuing to one year. To ensure that you reap the full benefits of the procedure, we highly recommend that you keep a healthy diet and fitness regimen to prevent unwanted weight gain. If you would like assistance with these goals as well, refer to our Weight Management programs.
