What is BodyTite Lipo?

BodyTite lipo is a medical procedure used to reduce and eliminate localized collections of unwanted fat and loose skin. BodyTite uses a small internal electrode to release radiofrequency energy to heat, coagulate and gently liquefy fat. The energy creates heat which also then tightens and contracts tissue and seals small vessels. The liquified fat is then removed with a small aspirating cannula.

With the small pockets and fat removed and skin tighter, the overall shape and contour of the body and quality of the skin is greatly improved. Up to 40% overall soft tissue contraction can be achieved.

Who is a BodyTite Lipo Candidate?

There is no age restriction for a BodyTite lipo procedure, but the ideal age range is 18-65 years old. A “good” BodyTite lipo candidate is also medically well and has realistic expectations.

  • Proper Physical Health: Good health and a lack of serious medical conditions are vital for a proper recovery following a BodyTite liposuction.
  • Realistic Body Contouring Expectations: As is the case with most cosmetic procedures, good BodyTite liposuction candidates have realistic expectations concerning the risks and benefits of the surgery.

Risks of a BodyTite Lipo

Like all procedures, BodyTite lipo comes with the risk of potential complications. SpaMedica plastic surgeons have been performing BodyTite lipo surgery for over 10 years and, after this many BodyTite lipo procedures, the risk of a significant complication is extremely low. Although Dr. Bell, the current Lead Surgeon of SpaMedica, has not seen most of the risks listed below, these BodyTite Lipo risks have been reported:

Swelling: In some cases, the procedure can result in swelling. However, this swelling should subside in the days following the procedure. 

Infections: Although infections are very rare with respect to BodyTite lipo procedures, Dr. Bell and his experienced team still take every precaution to ensure that the surgery is a smooth, seamless experience. 

Numbness: The affected area may feel numb following the surgery, but this side effect is typically temporary.

Bruising: In rare cases, the procedure may result in bruising that can last several days.

Thermal injury and burn: In rare cases, the procedure may result in a small skin burn. This burn may heal on its own and rarely requires corrective surgery.

Non-Surgical BodyTite Alternatives

There is a robust non-surgical body contouring program offered at SpaMedica, Canada’s leading non-surgical fat reduction and CoolSculpting centre.

What makes SpaMedica Canada’s leader, is the deployment of multiple, proven, non-surgical lipo technologies such as CoolSculpting, SculpSure, Evolve, Vanquish, EMsculpt, BodyFX, Vanquish, Venus Freeze, Excelis and VelaShape 3 to ensure you get a visible and permanent localized reduction of fat, skin tightening and muscle toning.

How is Bodytite Liposuction Performed by Dr. Tom Bell?

At SpaMedica, a BodyTite lipo procedure is performed under local anesthesia that is gently inserted into the fat. This anesthesia numbs and expands the fat cells, exposing them to ultrasound energy. The radiofrequency energy gently heats and melts the fat, seals off vessels and contracts the soft tissue, creating a fat emulsion for easier extraction.

During the surgery, the fat is removed and stored in a canister. Later, Dr. Bell, former President of the Canadian Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, shapes the area where the unwanted fat has been removed in order to ensure an excellent body contour.

How to Prepare for a BodyTite Lipo

Prior to your procedure, Dr. Bell and his team will review your medications and medical history. Based on the scope of the surgery, SpaMedica doctors may recommend that you stop taking certain medications before the surgery. It is also recommended that you consume a healthy diet and drink plenty of liquids before your surgery.

What to Expect After a BodyTite Lipo

After local anesthesia, we recommend that you do not drive for 2 weeks. While the procedure does not generally result in significant bruising or pain, there will be some swelling, which will be contained by a compression garment. 

Following your procedure, Dr. Bell and his team in Toronto will recommend a comprehensive postoperative care regime. This regime will include instructions about the importance of avoiding physical activity, abstaining from alcohol and smoking, and minimizing exposure to the sun.

BodyTite Lipo Recovery & Timeline

After the Surgery: Following the surgery, the patient will go home with a compression garment designed to reduce swelling. Generally, these garments are worn 22 hours a day for 6 weeks and 12 hours a day for another 6 weeks.

One Day After the Surgery: Patients may return to very light, sedentary work or non-work-related activities.

One Week After Surgery: Patients can return to low-impact activities.

Three Weeks After Surgery: The compression garments can now be worn for support during the day and removed in the evening and overnight. 

One Month After Surgery: Patients can return to high-impact activities such as jogging, running, and weight training.

BodyTite Lipo FAQ

How Painful is it to Get a BodyTite Lipo Procedure?

At SpaMedica, the actual BodyTite lipo is performed under local anesthesia that will be placed into the fat prior to the procedure, making the BodyTite procedure very comfortable.

Interestingly, BodyTite Lipo has been proven to cause far less discomfort than traditional liposuction procedures.

How is BodyTite Lipo Different from Traditional Liposuction?

Unlike a traditional liposuction procedure, BodyTite lipo uses thermal Radiofrequency energy to liquefy fat, tighten soft tissue and skin and decrease bruising when compared to traditional liposuction. In addition to a better result, BodyTite lipo has less bruising, swelling and pain.

What are the Side Effects of BodyTite Lipo?

There are very few side effects related to BodyTite lipo. There is a small risk of a small skin burn, but your experienced team at SpaMedica will ensure that all side effects are kept to a minimum.

Will I need to have Multiple Procedures?

No, you will not need to have multiple procedures, as the removed fat will not return. In fact, the results of a BodyTite lipo procedure will last for the rest of your life if you are able to stay within 5 to 10 pounds of your weight following the procedure.

How is the fat actually removed?

 After the BodyTite lipo, a small suction cannula is used to gently aspirate out the soft, emulsified liquified fat. This cannula can be power-assisted (PAL, microaire) or mechanical.
