As a practice known for using the latest technology for the benefit of our patients, we have selected a special technique of Bodytite Liposuction to ensure smooth, predictable results and fast healing. We have thoroughly researched this technology to make this decision with confidence, and as one of the only clinics within the U.K. to be using this technology, we welcome the opportunity to help you determine if Bodytite Liposuction is right for you. The information below should answer most of your questions about Bodytite Liposuction.
Bodytite Liposuction has two elements to the machine. It can be used for invasive as well as non-invasive techniques that can help to complement the surgical side or it can be used for surgical purposes to gently and precisely reshape the body via the removal of fat pockets. On the surgical side, it can help with liposuction and can help with significant skin tightening. On the non-surgical side, it can help reduce thin layers of fat on small and large surface areas, reduce fine lines, wrinkles and relieve the appearance of acne scars.
What distinguishes Bodytite Liposuction is its ability to remove the fat from the body gently, uniformly, and accurately with the use of the technology RFAL (Radio-Frequency Assisted Liposuction) whilst achieving significant skin tightening during the procedure. Your liposuction treatment with Radio Frequency will actually remove the fat gently compared with traditional methods, but leave your other tissues intact. This allows your skin to retract smoothly and evenly after the procedure and minimizes pain and bruising typically associated with fat removal. Most patients experience fast recovery and return to normal activities within days.
BEFORE YOUR SURGERY
In the week before, you should not take any medications containing aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid), since these products affect the blood’s clotting mechanism and therefore may lead to excessive bleeding during and after surgery, hence resulting in increased bruising. Taking high doses of vitamin E preparations, eating large amounts of garlic, and consuming alcohol can also produce the same result and should be avoided. If pain medication is necessary, we recommend you take ibuprofen/paracetamol.
It is in your own best interests to quit smoking, at least two weeks before and until 2 weeks after surgery. It is well known that smoking causes narrowing of the blood vessels, which leads to a decreased blood supply to the skin, thus slowing and interfering with the healing process.
Be sure to inform your surgeon of any medications you take, as well as possible allergies including (drug, latex, plasters, and so on). Your surgeon will decide whether preliminary examinations are necessary, such as blood tests, an electrocardiogram, or x-rays of the lungs. If this is the case, these tests should be performed several weeks before the surgery.
YOUR BODYTITE LIPOSUCTION SURGERY
Your Bodytitey Liposuction procedure will be performed under Local anesthetic with Sedation (this is not a general anesthetic). You may or may not be aware of what is going but will you will totally pain-free and will not remember the procedure. The procedure will take place at our Dubai Healthcare City Clinic.
During the procedure, the area to be sculpted is filled with a special saline solution that helps to numb the site and shrink the blood vessels (to minimize blood loss and bruising). This solution wets and fills the area to be treated, making the fat cells easier to liquefy with the machine’s sound energy. Then, small probes transmit sound energy (similar to that used for cataract removal in the eye) that dissolves fat cells on contact, while leaving other important tissues undisturbed. High-frequency sound waves target and dissolve less resistant fat cells on contact, while harmlessly bouncing off other healthy and important tissues. The emulsified fat flows into the wetting solution and is easily extracted because it is in liquid form.
Finally, gentle suction and massage of the sculptured site remove the emulsified fat quickly and easily.
The machine first liquefies and then removes the fat cells in this manner, which is why it is so gentle, effective, and provides such fast, predictable results.
