You have some loose or sagging skin. There is extra fat where you don’t want it. These are common complaints I frequently hear. Patients want to know if a tummy tuck is “the” solution for them. Maybe and maybe not. We offer many body sculpting options that may include only one procedure such as abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) or, more often than not, a combination of procedures to help patients achieve the body they want. Let’s look at a few:
Abdominoplasty, commonly called a tummy tuck, is a surgical procedure where I eliminate excess fat and skin, and I tighten the muscles of the abdominal wall. This is an effective way to tighten sagging and loose skin, and give you a flatter, firmer, and more toned belly. I frequently perform liposuction with a tummy tuck, ensuring your unwanted fat goes away along with the extra skin.
Lipo Abdominoplasty with BodyTite
You’re having a tummy tuck with liposuction, and you also have a few other areas on your body that need special attention, such as your inner thighs, flanks or arms. That’s where BodyTite comes in. This radio-frequency assisted lipolysis works well to refine contours and deal with isolated problem areas.
You don’t want nor need surgery yet but still need some tightening. You’re what we call a “tweener!” The good news is you have the option to come into the office for just BodyTite so we can deal with these small problem areas, rid you of unwanted fat, and tighten the skin.
BodyTite is also a great option if you want an arm or thigh lift but don’t want the long scars associated with those surgical procedures.
Surgery may not be for you, or you may not be ready to go that route quite yet. In either case, I suggest you try CoolSculpting. This fat-freezing nonsurgical procedure is effective at eliminating unwanted fat in various areas including arms, flanks, love handles, belly fat, inner and outer thighs, banana roll, bra bulge, back fat, knees, and double chin —all without surgery!
Many patients really like their CoolSculpting results; others need a bit more sculpting but still don’t want surgery. That’s where having a BodyTite treatment after completing your CoolSculpting cycles may give you the body you crave without incisions.
Are you concerned about discomfort or anxiety when having a procedure in our office? We have good news for you. I’ve added the Pro-Nox aesthetic system — 50% nitrous/50% oxygen analgesic. This helps relieve pain and anxiety and is available to you during BodyTite…or any in-office procedure.
