Dr. B. Aviva Preminger, MD now offers a revolutionary body contouring method of reducing fat while tightening skin through a minimally invasive procedure that uses radio frequency assisted lipolysis (RFAL). It is like getting surgical results, but without the scars or downtime!
Dr. Preminger can remove fat and tighten excess skin with a cannula that delivers precise and even heat in a three-dimensional contraction of the dermis, subdermal connective tissue, and deep fat. By using RFAL technology, the cannula delivers rapid heat between 50-70 degrees Celsius. The best part of the procedure is that it does not require a scalpel, leaves no scars, and has minimal downtime with a much easier recovery compared to traditional fat removal and skin tightening surgical procedures.
The consistent delivery of the heat is monitored with a built-in safeguard to ensure the skin temperature does not become excessively hot or uncomfortable. There is also an automatic power cut-off, as well as audible feedback that helps ensure patient safety.
BodyTite™ can be used to treat areas with large volume throughout the body including:
- Upper arms
- Love handles
For areas of the face, a smaller cannula is used for a FaceTite™ procedure, which is similar to BodyTite™ but without the fat removal.
Preparing for Your Procedure
Before beginning your procedure, Dr. Preminger will meet with you during a consultation to discuss your desires for a more contoured body, neck or face. She will also assess your general health to be sure you are a candidate. There will also be an assessment of the area or areas you wish to have recontoured.
Dr. Preminger will also discuss the benefits, risks, and side effects.
- Be prepared to have someone drive you to and from your appointment
- Quit smoking
- Discontinue using any vitamins, supplements or herbs prior to your appointment
- Wear loose, comfortable clothes to your appointment
When will I see results and how long will it last?
You will see results immediately following your procedure, although some swelling may be present. Skin is immediately tightened, although it can appear uneven several months after treatment. In some cases, it may take up to 12 months to see the full effect of your procedure.
Results will vary for each patient, but you can expect permanent results as long as you continue living a healthy lifestyle of eating a balanced diet and exercise regularly. Keep in mind that BodyTite™ does not prevent future weight gain.
