The cost of a BodyTite liposuction in Toronto is approximately $6,999 based on the zone treated. The cost can vary depending on specific zones or parts of the body targeted. The second zone might have an additional cost. Remember, factors such as the surgeon’s expertise, clinic location, and complexity of the procedure can influence the price.
Unlike a traditional liposuction procedure, BodyTite, a minimally invasive procedure, offers a swift recovery phase. Patients typically resume normal activities within a week.
Depending upon the BMI and size of the patient, on average, BodyTite Lipo takes approximately 45-60 minutes to perform 1-2 zones.
BodyTite Liposuction is a minimally invasive medical procedure that targets and eliminates localized collections of unwanted fat and sagging skin. Utilizing advanced radiofrequency technology, BodyTite employs a small internal electrode to release radiofrequency energy. This energy not only heats and coagulates the fat, gently liquefying it, but also promotes skin tightening by contracting tissues and sealing small vessels.
Once the fat is liquefied, it’s removed with a small aspirating cannula. The result is a significantly improved body contour and skin quality, with the potential for up to 40% overall soft tissue contraction.
There is no age restriction for a BodyTite lipo procedure, but the ideal age range is 18-65. A “good” BodyTite lipo candidate is also medically well and has realistic expectations.
Significant improvements in body shape can be achieved with noticeable skin tightening.
Unlike traditional liposuction, BodyTite Lipo procedures boast a relatively quick recovery process as it is minimally invasive.
The state-of-the-art, temperature-controlled radiofrequency energy makes BodyTite lipo easy to predict the results of the procedure.
If your weight does not fluctuate much following the procedure, the results of a BodyTite lipo can be Lifelong.
Like all procedures, BodyTite lipo comes with the risk of potential complications. Toronto’s SpaMedica plastic surgeons have successfully performed BodyTite lipo surgery for over a decade. With thousands of procedures completed, the risk of complications is very 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:
In some cases, the procedure can result in swelling. However, this swelling should subside in the days following the procedure.
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.
The affected area may feel numb following the surgery, but this side effect is typically temporary.
In rare cases, the procedure may result in bruising that can last several days.
In rare cases, the procedure may result in a small skin burn. This burn may heal on its own and rarely requires corrective surgery.
Led by the incomparable Dr. Bell, and taught by Dr. Mulholland, the former SpaMedica Lead Surgeon, the skilled and experienced cosmetic surgeons at SpaMedica combine technical proficiency and unparalleled precision with an individualized approach that puts the patient first. By using advanced plastic surgery techniques and state-of-the-art equipment, the SpaMedica team in Toronto is capable of producing incredible results while also reducing the risk of complications.
Dr. Bell is an accomplished plastic surgeon with vast experience in performing more than 5000 breast augmentations, liposuctions, tummy tucks, and body contouring procedures. He is the go-to surgeon for many of his colleagues who would recommend him to their spouses for procedures such as facelifts, nose jobs, or cosmetic body plastic surgeries.
In May of 2021, after 25 years as Canada’s most recognized Cosmetic Surgeon, Dr. Mulholland retired from active Plastic Surgery Practice. Dr. Mulholland moved to the United States to pursue his work with InMode MD electrosurgical (a company he cofounded) in the United States. He will continue to educate and teach the science of practice management through his BoomerangFX book, webinars series, and the SaaS practice management software (another company he cofounded).
In 2022, Dr. Mulholland moved to London, England, to expand the InMode technology and BoomerangFX Software message internationally.
If you’re having a difficult time deciding between CoolSculpting vs. BodyTite, SpaMedica can help. As Canada’s leading non-surgical fat reduction and CoolSculpting centre, we offer a non-surgical body contouring program that provides permanent fat reduction, skin tightening, and muscle toning. Although these techniques may not provide the same results as BodyTite liposuction, they are popular non-surgical alternatives.
What sets SpaMedica apart as Canada’s leader is their utilization of multiple proven non-surgical lipo technologies. These include CoolSculpting, SculpSure, Evolve, Vanquish, EMsculpt, BodyFX, Venus Freeze, Excelis, and VelaShape 3. These treatments ensure clients achieve visible and permanent localized reduction of fat, skin tightening, and muscle toning.
At SpaMedica in Toronto, 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 technology 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.
Prior to your minimally invasive 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.
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 is often combined with breast augmentation, tummy tuck and fat grafting to the buttock and face. Non-surgical treatments that are often combined include laser hair removal, cellulite reduction and skin tightening.
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. While there may be swelling and discomfort afterwards, there will be no extreme or long-term pain. Interestingly, BodyTite Lipo has been proven to cause far less discomfort than traditional liposuction procedures.
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.
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.
No, you will not need multiple procedures, as the removed fat will not return. The results of a BodyTite lipo procedure will last for the rest of your life if you can stay within 5 to 10 pounds of your weight following the procedure.
After the BodyTite lipo, a small suction cannula is used to aspirate out the soft, emulsified, liquified fat gently. This cannula can be power-assisted (PAL, microaire) or mechanical.
