At Layton Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, we are one of the first providers of BodyTite™, a revolutionary skin tightening technique. Dr. Layton is proud to be a pioneer for this treatment, offering this minimally invasive body contouring solution to residents of Houston, Sugar Land and Kerrville, TX.
What is BodyTite™?
BodyTite™ is a new, state-of-the-art, minimally invasive treatment option for removing fat while tightening and lifting excess skin. It can be used on many areas of the body, and is commonly used as a non-surgical alternative to a breast lift. BodyTite™ uses radiofrequency-assisted lipolysis, or RFAL, which means that it combines gentle radiofrequency energy with a liposuction technique. The radiofrequency component helps to melt fat and tighten the skin while fat is removed, resulting in a much gentler, less invasive and more effective procedure. At Layton Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, we are one of the first practices in Texas to offer this advanced treatment. Dr. Layton helps train other doctors to use BodyTite™, and is proud to offer his expertise to our patients.
“I view BodyTite™ as a game-changer for body contouring. It allows us to provide body contouring in areas that have previously required surgery that may result in scars and areas that have not previously been responsive to surgery or non-invasive treatment options.” -Dr. Layton
How Much Does BodyTite™ Cost?
The cost of a BodyTite™ treatment is about $6,500, but can vary depending on the extent of treatment necessary to deliver your desired results. During your consultation, Dr. Layton will be able to provide you with a treatment plan that matches your specific needs. At this point, we will be able to provide you with the exact cost of your treatment. We also offer financing services to help make this and other treatments more affordable.
What is the BodyTite™ Treatment Like?
The BodyTite™ treatment is usually performed with local anesthesia, depending on the number of areas being treated. During the procedure, a small, needle-sized device is inserted into the skin. Then, the BodyTite™ device delivers radiofrequency energy to simultaneously melt fat and tighten the skin. Small amounts of fat are vacuumed out of the body during this process, further enhancing your results. After the desired results are achieved, your treatment is complete.
What is the Downtime Like After BodyTite™?
After a BodyTite™ procedure, patients may have to take time off of work and other activities for as long as a week to allow the body to heal. We also recommend that patients avoid exercise and other strenuous activities for about two months after their treatment. During this time, patients who received a BodyTite™ treatment on the breasts will need to wear a supportive bra to ensure proper recovery.
How Long Will My Results from BodyTite™ Last?
The BodyTite™ procedure permanently eliminates fat from the body and produces significant skin tightening results. The results from BodyTite™ can be permanent, but patients should strive to maintain a healthy diet and exercise habits to make their results last as long as possible. Like any cosmetic treatment, BodyTite™ cannot prevent gradual changes from occurring due to the natural aging process.
