BodyTiteDiscover BodyTite, a Revolution in Minimally-Invasive Body Contouring!

It’s easy to dream of a slim, toned physique but developing that physique is actually pretty tough. While a healthy diet and regular exercise may help you come close to your ideal weight, many people are surprised to find that they can’t reduce all of their unwanted curves or minimize the appearance of sagging, stretched-out skin. Yet that dream body may not be out of reach: thanks to BodyTite, a slimmer, more toned physique may be possible even without liposuction or tummy tuck surgery!

The body contouring experts at the Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery have included BodyTite in their comprehensive selection of surgical and non-surgical body contouring technologies because it can simultaneously reduce both unwanted fat and lax skin.* Utilizing a patented technique known as Radio-Frequency Assisted Lipolysis (RFAL™), this minimally-invasive technique targets unwanted fatty tissue while contracting loose, sagging skin; without surgery, large incisions, extensive downtime, and visible scarring.  

Dr. Reps Sundin and Dr. Burton Sundin, Board certified plastic surgeons and body contouring specialists, now offer BodyTite at the Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery, conveniently located in both Richmond, VA and Vienna, VA (Tyson’s Corner). For more information on whether BodyTite might be right for you, contact us today!

Radio-Frequency Assisted Lipolysis (RFAL™): The Secret Behind BodyTite

BodyTite utilizes a sophisticated, patented technology called Radio-Frequency Assisted Liposuction, or RFAL™, that enables it to work at a three-dimensional level: simultaneously contracting (1) the dermis, (2) the subdermal connective collagen matrix, and (3) the deep fat. Unlike other technologies, RFAL™ works by passing an electrical current between a thin internal cannula placed inside the skin and an external electrode placed on top of the skin. As the electrical current turns to heat within the various layers of tissue, it simultaneously disrupts the fat cells while contracting collagen strands. Moreover, RFAL™ is specially designed to maintain a constant temperature gradient for optimal and consistent heating over large target zones.   

A typical BodyTite treatment requires about 15 minutes per treatment area. It requires small incisions about the size of an 18-guage needle, significantly smaller than traditional surgical liposuction. BodyTite is a minimally-invasive treatment that still involves the use of a liposuction cannula, and we usually recommend about 5-10 days of rest and downtime depending on the number and location of treatment areas.
