About Body Contouring
Body contouring is a non-surgical procedure that sculpts and contours your body, giving you the shape and definition you desire. While everyone has different cosmetic concerns, most people need treatments that target excess skin tissues or unwanted pockets of fat. Traditional body contouring procedures rely on surgical techniques, such as liposuction and abdominoplasty, to produce the desired results.
However, Rejuvenate Center for Medical Aesthetics & Wellness is equipped with the cutting-edge BodyTite platform for non-surgical body contouring in New Jersey. Dr. Falguni Patel specializes in individualized non-surgical body contouring to produce the desired results with minimal downtime and risks.
What is it?
Body contouring is a non-surgical procedure wherein radiofrequency energy and liposuction capabilities are combined to help you achieve the desired body shape and contours. The procedure uses the cutting-edge BodyTite platform to remove unwanted fat tissues and tighten skin tissues, giving you a firm and taut body.
Body contouring with BodyTite is the ideal alternative to traditional liposuction and other fat reduction techniques. Liposuction removes unwanted fat tissues but leaves behind a mass of sagging skin tissues that need to be tightened using other procedures. However, Dr. Patel’s specialized body contouring procedure simultaneously removes unwanted fat and tightens skin.
Body Contouring at Work
Who is it for?
Body contouring is generally popular amongst patients with unwanted pockets of fat in various body parts, moderate skin laxity, sagging skin tissues, or unwanted fine lines caused by excess skin. You can opt for this procedure if you want to improve your general appearance or reverse the effects of age, pregnancy, weight loss, and medical conditions on your body.
Patients often opt for our body contouring in NJ to remove the stubborn pockets of fat that resist natural weight loss efforts, such as exercise and dieting. And it’s also suitable for those who have undergone sudden weight loss — body contouring is necessary to truly appreciate the results of your weight loss by tightening the remaining skin tissues..
How does it work?
Body contouring with BodyTite is a radiofrequency-assisted lipolysis (RFAL) procedure. As such, it combines the benefits of liposuction (used for fat reduction) and radiofrequency energy (used for skin tightening), allowing you to reduce unwanted fat and tighten skin tissues simultaneously. Furthermore, the procedure is completely safe and minimally invasive.
The procedure involves liquefying the wanted fat tissues using radiofrequency energy. Once the fat tissues are liquefied, they can be suctioned away from the body via liposuction tubes. The radiofrequency energy also penetrates deep within the skin tissues to activate collagen production, which, in turn, tightens and strengthens your skin.
What can I expect?
Your treatment plan is individually tailored to address your specific needs — Dr. Falguni Patel conducts a thorough evaluation with numerous physical tests and a discussion of your goals to recommend the ideal treatment plan. The minimally invasive body contouring procedure with BodyTite is performed in Dr. Patel’s office under local anesthesia.
Dr. Patel makes a tiny incision on the chosen treatment area to insert a radiofrequency probe underneath the skin’s surface. An electrode is passed on the opposite end over the skin’s surface to generate an electrical field between the probe and electrode. The concentrated radiofrequency energy contracts the skin tissues and liquefies the fat.
The BodyTite probes are moved back and forth across the treatment areas to ensure uniform radiofrequency energy distribution. In some cases, a tube-like device may be used to suction away the unwanted fat tissues. The entire procedure concludes within an hour, following which you can have someone drive you home. The incisions don’t need stitches.
Body contouring in New Jersey with BodyTite doesn’t involve much downtime. You can resume most of your daily activities and work within 3 to 4 days — far less than surgical alternatives. While you may experience some bruising and swelling for a few days, the lingering pain is minimal, and the side effects dissipate soon enough.
