BodyTite on Stomach: Revolutionizing Body Contouring

Stomach Bodytite - Bodytite Stomach Cost, Before and After

For those struggling with loose abdominal skin due to weight fluctuations, aging or post-pregnancy, BodyTite offers a contouring solution like no other on the market today. This advanced radiofrequency technique is reshaping the body shaping world through impressive stomach transformations. BodyTite is an FDA-cleared(2016) technology developed by InMode for non-surgical body contouring. It combines radio-frequency assisted lipolysis (RFAL) with advanced internal tissue tightening.

Traditional liposuction has long been the go-to for stubborn fat removal, but it always leaves patients with loose and sagging skin. BodyTite addresses this through a minimally invasive procedure that melts away fatty deposits while heating and contracting the underlying tissues.

The impact is a flatter, firmer, more toned abdomen that appears sculpted from the inside out. BodyTite has truly revolutionized the body-shaping process and made it possible to achieve slimming results and skin tightening in a single treatment with less downtime compared to invasive surgeries.

Understanding BodyTite Technology

BodyTite utilizes radiofrequency (RF) energy to achieve skin tightening and fat reduction without major surgery. The key components are:

  1. Internal cannula that emits RF energy under the skin
  2. External electrode that delivers RF energy to the skin’s surface
  3. The RF energy flows between these two electrodes, generating controlled heat that:
  • Liquefies and allows removal of fat cells
  • Causes existing collagen to contract, tightening skin immediately
  • Stimulates production of new collagen over time for continued skin tightening

The BodyTite device is designed with advanced safety features to optimize results and minimize risks:

  • Silicon coating on the internal cannula prevents heat transfer except at the targeted tip area.
  • Sensors monitor temperature and automatically adjust RF flow to maintain therapeutic heating levels safely.
  • The internal cannula tip has a specialized design to facilitate smooth movement while avoiding thermal injury.

BodyTite vs. Tummy Tuck: A Comparative Analysis

Procedure Overview

BodyTite vs. Tummy Tuck: A Comparative Analysis

BodyTite Tummy Tuck
Minimally invasive, no excision of skin Surgical removal of excess skin/fat
RF energy melts fat and tightens skin Tightens abdominal muscles (rectus plication)
Small incisions for probe insertion Large horizontal incision from hip to hip
Done under local anesthesia or IV sedation Requires general anesthesia
Treatment areas limited to abdomen and flanks Full abdomen addressed

Recovery and Downtime

BodyTite Tummy Tuck
3-5 days downtime for normal activities 2+ weeks downtime
Compression garment 4-8 weeks Compression 4-6 weeks
Final results in 6-12 months as new collagen builds Final results in 6-12 months

BodyTite is best suited for:

  • Mild to moderate abdominal skin laxity
  • Isolated fat pockets on the abdomen/flanks
  • Being close to ideal body weight

A tummy tuck may be recommended for:

  • Significant excess abdominal skin
  • Severe muscle separation (diastasis recti)
  • Major weight loss patients

Both require being in generally good health.

  • BodyTite is FDA-cleared for non-invasive body contouring
  • Tummy tuck is an accepted, FDA-compliant plastic surgery procedure

Evaluating BodyTite: Pros and Cons

Pros 

  • BodyTite addresses laxity and fat simultaneously through radiofrequency (RF) energy. This energy targets stubborn fat cells, liquefying them for easier removal while stimulating collagen production within the skin, leading to a tightening effect. 
  • It offers faster recovery and less discomfort than traditional surgical procedures like tummy tucks because it is minimally invasive. Patients return to their normal activities within 3-5 days. 
  • Patients experience reduced scarring because BodyTite relies on smaller incisions, which lowers the risk of noticeable scarring. The entry points for the RF probes are strategically placed and very small (around 1/8 of an inch). This minimizes their visibility after healing.
  • It is FDA-cleared, indicating a level of safety and effectiveness established through a rigorous regulatory process.
  • It offers faster treatment times(about 30 minutes, depending on the treatment area) for smaller areas.

Cons

  • It has Limited results for significant laxity.
  • It has a risk of side effects such as:
    • Burns
    • Scarring
    • Numbness
    • Infection. 

Fortunately, choosing a qualified and experienced surgeon who uses proper techniques minimizes these risks.

  • Long-term data on its effectiveness and safety is still emerging compared to these more traditional approaches.
  • It is not a weight loss solution. It is best suited for people close to their ideal weight and want to address specific areas with stubborn fat or mild skin laxity.
  • BodyTite results highly depend on the surgeon’s skill and experience performing the procedure. 

Choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon with a proven track record in BodyTite and a history of happy patients is critical to achieving optimal results and minimizing the risk of complications.

Bodytite Before & After Stomach

BodyTite on the stomach reduces fat, improves skin tone, and improves abdominal shape. Here’s what to expect after the procedure:

Bodytite Before & After Stomach

  • Fat reduction.

One of the most noticeable changes is a reduction in visible fat deposits in the abdomen. BodyTite liquefies fat cells, which are then gently suctioned out during the procedure. This can lead to a slimmer stomach profile and a more defined waistline.

  • Improved skin tone.

BodyTite’s radiofrequency energy stimulates collagen production within the skin. This collagen tightening effect makes the stomach area firmer and smoother in appearance. It also reduces wrinkles and sagging skin.

  • Overall Abdominal Shape.

The combined effect of fat removal and skin tightening results in a more sculpted and contoured abdomen. BodyTite leads to a more aesthetically pleasing abdominal profile by addressing bulges and unevenness in the stomach area.

Real Experiences: Patient Testimonials

Hearing directly from past patients can provide valuable insight into what to expect from a BodyTite procedure on the stomach area. Here are some patient testimonials from realself:

“I had the BodyTite procedure on my abdomen, sides and lower back. The procedure was explained to me at length and I felt confident to move forward with it… When I first thought about the procedure I was worried that this would be an uncomfortable procedure however I was comfortable throughout and I’m already amazed by my results.

“BodyTite procedure was a success! The longtime stubborn fat on my lower abs shrunk by 5 inches and it is only 3 months post op. I’m very satisfied and definitely grateful that I considered this. Will come back again.”

“I’ve always hated my love handles, no matter how much I work out or diet even when I was young that’s where weight would stay. Finally I decided to do something about it! After doing a ton of research I decided BodyTite was for me. Now about a year after my procedure I can say it was totally worth it. I was swollen for maybe 9-10 weeks because they did some liposuction too, but I could tell a difference right away & my best results seemed to show at about 6 months after my BodyTite.”

Bodytite Stomach Cost

The average cost range for BodyTite’s procedures on the stomach area is between $2,500 and $16,000. The costs don’t vary that much but are affected by different factors, including:

  • The size and scope of the treatment area.

Larger treatment areas are more expensive than smaller areas. Reviews on Realself show that most patients getting BodyTite on the stomach for the full abdomen paid between $8,000 and $12,000, while those who received the procedure in smaller areas like the flanks paid an average of $2,500 to $6,000.

  • Surgeon Expertise  

The surgeon’s experience and board certification affect the overall cost, though it’s not a significant factor. Surgeons who are more experienced and board-certified and specialize in body contouring procedures tend to have higher fees than less seasoned providers. Their expertise in techniques like BodyTite justifies premium pricing, often $2,000 to $4,000 more.

  • Geographic Location

The facilities` location affects the price depending on whether it’s in an HCOL, MCOL, or LCOL area. Facilities in major metropolitan areas with a HCOL like New York City or Los Angeles will be more expensive than those in suburban or rural locations.

  • Extent of treatment 

The price increases when the procedure is combined with additional surgeries like liposuction, muscle repair, or a tummy tuck. The additional procedures increase the overall complexity and duration required. A single procedure can take up to 30 minutes, while additional procedures can cause this time to double or even quadruple. 

  • Surgery Center Fees

The operating facility’s fees for staffing, equipment, anesthesia and other expenses contribute substantially to the bottom line BodyTite price. The difference does not usually exceed $3,000.

Conclusion

BodyTite is a minimally invasive skin tightening procedure that uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to contract and firm up loose skin on areas like the abdomen, arms, thighs, and more. It can be performed alone or combined with liposuction to remove fat while tightening skin.

The RF energy causes contraction of soft tissues by 25-45%, making it best for mild-to-moderate skin laxity, but not severe sagging. Advantages include skin tightening with little downtime, less swelling/bruising than regular lipo when combined, and small incisions. However, downsides are it may not give dramatic results for severe laxity, risk of burns/scars if done incorrectly, and some reviewers report new wrinkles or irregularities.

Ideal candidates are at a stable weight, in overall good health, and have realistic expectations. The average cost is $3,500 but can range from $2,500 to $16,000 based on areas treated and surgeon experience. It takes 30-45 minutes per area treated, and recovery is 3-5 days for normal activities.

Results appear immediately but continue improving for up to a year as new collagen is produced. Maintenance of results requires keeping weight stable long-term as remaining fat can still expand.
