How Long Do I Have to Wait to See Results After BodyTite?

i had bodytite done on my flanks, outer thighs and buttocks, plus smart lipo on inner thighs 4 days ago. the swelling went down a bit.. i had a bit more than half a liter removed. when can i see results? does this little amount of fat removed make a difference?

Thanks for your question!

The biggest reason patients do not see results as quickly as they intended is due to swelling. Your physician should have discussed with you the typical results and how long it will take to achieve this. Initially, swelling can last up to 4-6 weeks and possibly longer depending on your personal recovery. Full effects of the procedure can be expected within six months to one year.

I do recommend discussing with your physician ways to possibly minimize swelling.

Hope this helps! Best of luck in your recovery.

BodyTite Results

Thank you for your question! You should see results as soon as the swelling goes down in about four weeks. Studies have also shown that you should see continued improvement for up to a year after the procedure. An amount of half a liter should absolutely provide results.

How long it takes to see results from Bodytite

Bodytite stimulates skin to tighten from the inside out, by passing RF energy through the skin using a probe that goes under the skin and a second contact that rests on the skin.  The procedure is usually followed by liposuction to remove the fat that has been heated.  Because this is an energy technology, it will take some time for the body to respond to the stimuli before seeing the full results, typically taking 3-12 months to see maximum skin tightening.

Results from liposuction

Regardless of type of liposuction, whether conventional tumescent, laser-assisted or radifrequency-assisted, there can be improvement for six months or more as the body continues to retract and tighten.
