At our Southwest Michigan Plastic and Hand Surgery location in Portage, MI, we offer a non-surgical skin-tightening treatment called BodyTite by InMode, which uses radiofrequency heat energy to liquefy fat cells while simultaneously tightening the skin by forcing the body to increase natural collagen production. If you have skin laxity and pockets of stubborn fat in one or multiple body areas, we can design a treatment plan for you.
What Is BodyTite by InMode?
BodyTite by InMode is an innovative FDA-approved skin tightening and body contouring treatment that uses advanced technology to liquefy and eliminate stubborn fat cells from the body without requiring that patients undergo a surgical procedure. At the same time, it uses radiofrequency heat energy to stimulate natural collagen production in the treatment area to treat the signs of aging that result from skin laxity.
Eliminating Stubborn Fat
Pockets of stubborn fat can appear virtually anywhere on the body, but certain areas are more prone to fat accumulation than others. These cells are typically resistant to diet and exercise and require something more than lifestyle changes for fat reduction. One of the benefits of BodyTite by InMode is that it uses heat energy to liquefy fat cells while simultaneously improving skin condition.
Tightening Loose Skin
The radiofrequency heat energy not only liquefies stubborn fat cells but also forces the body to respond with a healing reaction that results in natural, increased collagen production. As your body produces more collagen in the treatment area, your skin will appear tighter, thicker, and firmer. The effects of skin laxity will become less noticeable, and loose, sagging skin will be replaced with tighter, younger-looking skin.
What Are the Treatment Benefits?
This treatment is an effective option for those who want to target loose skin and stubborn fat simultaneously without undergoing a surgical procedure. It’s a minimally invasive treatment that delivers dramatic results after just one treatment. Some of the other treatment benefits include the following:
- Treatments are quick
- There’s no significant downtime
- Results are immediate and continue to improve over time
- Results are long-lasting
- Treatments are comfortable and minimally invasive
Frequently Asked Questions
What Should I Expect From the Treatment?
BodyTite by InMode is a form of liposuction that’s less invasive than traditional liposuction. It uses an advanced technique called RFAL, also known as radiofrequency-assisted lipolysis. The device delivers heat to the treatment area to liquefy fat cells and tighten the skin. That heat is controlled and does not harm surrounding tissues.
This device can target both excess fat cells and loose skin to help patients achieve ideal results. Treatments are comfortable, don’t require general anesthesia, and typically take 30 to 45 minutes to complete. Treatments may be longer if you treat multiple areas during one session.
Who Is It Right For?
BodyTite by InMode is an effective option for patients who want to tighten loose skin while eliminating stubborn fat without undergoing surgery or traditional liposuction. If you’ve noticed the effects of aging on different areas of your body, and you also want to remove excess body fat, specifically the stubborn fat cells that don’t respond to your healthy lifestyle, you may be the ideal candidate.
It’s important to note that this treatment is not a weight-loss treatment. It is a body contouring treatment designed to help patients sculpt their bodies and combat the effects of the aging process. An initial consultation is the best way to learn more about the treatment and allows us to determine your treatment eligibility.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Most patients only need one treatment to achieve their ideal results. When we meet with you during your consultation, we will evaluate your desired treatment areas and design your unique treatment plant.
Is There Downtime?
After you undergo your treatment, you won’t need any stitches or experience significant discomfort. We will provide some directives regarding the healing process, but most patients can resume their normal daily activities within a few days. You will be able to return home the same day of your treatment and won’t have to endure any significant interruption to your daily routine.
How Is the Treatment Different From Liposuction?
BodyTite by InMode is different from traditional liposuction because it doesn’t require any incisions and is only minimally invasive. Additionally, it can simultaneously tighten the skin during the treatment. Using radiofrequency energy promotes quick recovery and noticeable and gradual results. There’s less downtime, less discomfort, and added benefits.
Is It Safe?
BodyTite by InMode is a safe treatment that is FDA-approved to help patients achieve their ideal physiques. Patients do not need general anesthesia during the treatment, which limits the risk factor. We are fully trained in administering these treatments and will ensure we target your treatment area safely and help you achieve results that exceed your expectations.
How Long Will My Results Last?
Treatment results are intended to be permanent so long as patients take care of their skin post-treatment and avoid significant weight gain. While the radiofrequency energy will liquefy fat cells for easy and gentle removal, the treatment does not remove every fat cell in the area.
If you do gain weight, any existing fat cells may expand, which will negatively affect the appearance of that area. A healthy lifestyle that includes regular exercise and a healthy diet will help you avoid weight gain and enjoy long-term results.
Contour Your Body With a Non-Surgical Treatment
If you’re tired of living with pockets of stubborn fat preventing you from achieving your body goals, we can customize a treatment plan with this unique device to safely and effectively eliminate those stubborn fat cells holding you back from being your best. This device delivers a quick and comfortable treatment that can help you finally eliminate those stubborn fat cells while tightening loose skin and improving your confidence.
