Liposuction with BodyTite on Long Island, NY

What Is BodyTite?

Liposuction with BodyTite Long IslandSkin can stretch for a variety of reasons, including weight gain, pregnancy, and aging. After losing weight, taut skin should constrict around the newly smaller body contours. However, many people, particularly those over 35, no longer produce enough collagen and elastin to keep their skin elastic-like. This means that the skin stays stretched, obscuring the improved body contours.

BodyTite emits radiofrequency (RF) energy to help stimulate new collagen and elastin production, thus tightening loose skin.

Why Is BodyTite Paired with Liposuction?

Liposuction is a surgery that permanently pulls out unwanted fat cells to improve the contours of a patient’s body. The cosmetic problem that some patients find is that once they have excess fat removed, the loose skin around their newly smaller frame makes their bodies seem less toned than they had originally hoped. Adding BodyTite to this classic surgery improves the tightness of the skin, which further enhances the results attained with liposuction. Dr. Funt recommends this approach to patients who want liposuction but exhibit signs of skin laxity.

What Is the Recovery for Liposuction with BodyTite Like?

Recovery times vary from one patient to the next, but patients typically need a few days to two weeks to feel well enough to return to work after liposuction with BodyTite. Swelling, bruising, and discomfort (which can be managed with pain medication) should disappear in the weeks following treatment. It can take up to six months for the complete results to manifest, since collagen and elastin production continues to improve over time.

How Long Does Liposuction with BodyTite Last?

Because the fat cells removed with liposuction are gone from that area permanently, results are considered indefinite so long as the patient maintains a steady weight. The skin tightening portion of this cosmetic enhancement can last up to five years before the effects of aging start to loosen the skin once again. The good news is that BodyTite can be repeated (without liposuction) in the future to help keep the contours you want.

Is BodyTite Safe?

BodyTite WoodmereBecause BodyTite relies on RF energy, it is a minimally invasive procedure with very low complication risks. Patients who would prefer to avoid surgery altogether and are primarily concerned with loose skin may elect to have BodyTite performed as a standalone procedure. BodyTite does not cause significant scarring.

BodyTite has received FDA approval for use on the abdomen, breasts, knees, thighs, and arms. It is also safe and effective to use in other areas of the body.

How Much Does Liposuction with BodyTite Cost?

The price is determined by the size of the treatment area and number of treatment areas the patient seeks. Dr. Funt can provide a quote during a consultation with the patient. Combining these two procedures saves the patient money compared to having them performed separately. Because these are elective procedures, they are not covered by insurance. However, patients can apply for financing to make paying for their cosmetic surgery more affordable.
