Sagging skin and extra fat does not always mean that you need surgical body contouring. BodyTite™ is an advanced, non-surgical treatment that tightens the skin and reduces fat. Dr. Balinger offers BodyTite™ for men and women in Houston, Conroe and surrounding areas of Texas.
What is BodyTite™?
BodyTite™ is a non-surgical treatment that relies on radiofrequency energy to stimulate collagen production and reduce fat. The radiofrequency energy gently heats the tissues, and this triggers the body’s collagen production while reducing the size of fat cells. Liposuction is a popular fat removal procedure, but it does not help with loose skin. Surgical body contouring, removes fat and skin, but you have significant downtime and recovery. With BodyTite™, you get the advantages of surgery and liposuction without the downsides.
How Much Does BodyTite™ Cost?
We will provide the cost of your BodyTite™ treatment after the consultation with Dr. Balinger. We offer free initial consultations at our offices in Houston and Conroe, as well as financing options for our patients.
What Are the Benefits of BodyTite™?
- Less downtime than liposuction and surgery
- No scarring
- One technology to tighten skin and reduce fat
- Used on most areas of the body
How is BodyTite™ Performed?
The BodyTite™ handpiece is designed with a thin probe that is inserted through the skin and a device that works outside the skin. Dr. Balinger will numb the area with a local anesthesia. The radiofrequency energy is applied to the tissues from two directions. The process breaks down fat cells and causes the skin to contract. The fat is suctioned out of the area. You may feel a mild sensation of warmth when the radiofrequency energy is applied. Most patients are able to relax during the treatment. The procedure may take one to three hours.
What is Recovery Like After BodyTite™?
BodyTite™ requires little to no downtime. You may notice some mild discomfort in the area for the first two to three days. Other symptoms that may develop are bruising and swelling. Dr. Balinger may recommend that you wear a compression garment to reduce swelling. You should avoid any strenuous activities for the first three days.
How Long Will BodyTite™ Results Last?
The results of BodyTite™ treatments varies, but on average, the skin tightening benefits may last up to three years. You can extend the results by protecting your skin from damaging sunlight and maintaining an ideal weight through proper nutrition and exercise.
