BodyTite™ in Santa Barbara, CA
Even though most of us work hard to look and feel good about ourselves as we age, we still may deal with stubborn pockets of fat that resist any and all efforts. In Santa Barbara, Santa Maria, Ventura, and the surrounding communities, Sara Yegiyants, MD, FACS, uses BodyTite™ to smooth and tone the body creating a younger appearance.
What is BodyTite™?
BodyTite™ is a minimally invasive body sculpting procedure combining two treatments that eliminate excess pockets of fat and tighten skin to recontour and tone areas of the body using radio frequency assisted liposuction. It offers excellent results in many areas of the body where excess fat seems to resist a healthy diet and exercise regimen especially the outer thighs, abdomen, and back. Other areas that benefit from BodyTite™ are the neck, upper arms, knees, and buttocks.
Why Choose BodyTite™?
BodyTite™ is often chosen by people who do not want to undergo invasive body sculpting procedures requiring a lengthy recovery. The treatment also tightens the skin to reduce sagging skin.
Who is a Good Candidate for BodyTite™?
Candidates for BodyTite™ are in fairly good shape but have moderate skin laxity around areas of the body with excess fat. They also do not want to undergo invasive procedures such as tummy tucks or brachioplasty because of the scarring and longer recovery periods. Candidates also have realistic attitudes about the outcome and understand the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
How is BodyTite™ Performed?
The BodyTite™ procedure involves inserting a cannula through a small incision to emit thermal energy into the targeted area. The energy eliminates the fat cells, shrinking and tightening the skin. Dr. Yegiyants uses a local anesthesia to eliminate pain or discomfort during BodyTite™. The brief recovery requires a few days of rest and includes only some redness and swelling as well as uneven skin, and soreness following the treatment. These symptoms will resolve within a couple of weeks.
When Will I See the Results from BodyTite™?
The results are somewhat noticeable immediately following the procedure and continue to improve over the next couple of months as the skin and tissue even out. The results are permanent; however, it is imperative that patients maintain a healthy lifestyle as new fat cells can develop.
How Much Does BodyTite™ Cost in Santa Barbara?
The cost of BodyTite™ varies with each patient based on the area to be treated, the extent of that area and whether other treatments are performed during the same appointment. We review the costs with each patient along with our payment and financing options. We accept cash, checks and major credit cards along with offering financing through CareCredit® and Alphaeon®.
