A new and advanced body contouring technique, radiofrequency assisted liposuction (RFAL) selectively removes excess fat deposits from various areas and tightens the skin. With most cosmetic surgical procedures, one major concern of most patients is recovery time. The advantage of minimally invasive procedures such as BodyTite liposuction which uses RFAL technology is that they provide optimal results with minimal side effects and downtime, which speeds up recovery.
Radiofrequency Assisted Liposuction Procedure
Both men and women find this treatment very useful to meet their personal cosmetic goals. This RFAL liposuction procedure can resolve diet and exercise resistant stubborn fat in areas such as the arms, neck, thighs, knees, abdomen, and breasts or chest area. An experienced plastic surgeon can use the BodyTite device to aspirate fat without pain.
After the anesthetic is injected and has taken effect, the RFAL device is placed at the treatment site and the cannula is inserted and gently moved back and forth. The radiofrequency energy heats and melts the fat, which can then be removed. As the system allows precise delivery of energy, the surrounding tissues are not affected. The safety features of the device are controlled energy delivery and external temperature sensor and cutoff, which prevent overtreatment.
Factors Contributing to Speedy Recovery
In addition, this treatment offers many advantages over other fat removal procedures:
- Superior body contouring without a lumpy irregular appearance
- Speedy treatment
- Effective tissue tightening with internal radio-frequency application
- Controlled and focuses energy distribution to maximize treatment effects and minimize trauma
- Improved safety with modalities that prevent thermal injuries
- Procedure under local anesthesia reduce risks
- Gentle extraction of fat results in reduced bruising and swelling
All of these factors contribute to decreased patient downtime and faster recovery. Patients can resume work without experiencing any risks or complications. Light activities can be resumed immediately and normal activities in a few days time
However, the actual recovery time can vary among patients. The above information is just an indicator of what can be expected in normal circumstances and your surgeon can help clarify your own prospects.
Choosing the right plastic surgeon with adequate skills and experience in the BodyTite liposuction treatment is crucial to enjoy optimal results and quick recovery. Following your surgeon’s instructions on medications and post-operative care is also necessary. Finally, remember that this is not a weight loss solution and to maintain results you should stick to a healthy diet and exercise pattern.
