"I had Abdominalplasty a month ago. The recovery time was not as painful as I had thought it would be. I had minimal pain and was able to do light housekeeping, walk and drive myself to conduct personal/business activities a few days after procedure. Wearing the compression suit for a month took some getting used to, but time went by quickly. Dr. Hakimi answered any questions I had in a timely manner during recovery phase. I highly recommend him for this procedure. He conducted himself in a professional manner and was completely honest with me regarding the outcome of my procedure."- V.T. / Google / Aug 28, 2020

Can I Get BodyTite?
BodyTite can be helpful if you would like to see improved contours and skin tightness in one or multiple areas of your body. You might be a candidate for BodyTite if you want to get rid of stubborn pockets of fat and improve the look of sagging and wrinkled skin for a more youthful and attractive appearance. If you have thought about body lift surgery or traditional liposuction but would prefer to avoid surgical downtime and scarring, BodyTite could be for you. Many parts of the body can be treated with this minimally invasive procedure; however, some of the common areas patients need help with are the chest, arms, stomach, knees, and thighs. At your consultation, plastic surgeon Dr. Hakimi will listen to your concerns and goals, and together, you can decide if BodyTite or another procedure is right for you.
How Does BodyTite Work?
BodyTite is usually performed with local anesthesia, but general anesthesia can be used if you are nervous or getting several areas treated. The special BodyTite applicator is inserted via three-millimeter incisions in your skin. Internal and external thermometers will protect your skin from burns during the procedure. Dr. Hakimi will use the applicator to loosen and liquefy the fat using radiofrequency waves so the fat can be easily suctioned from your body. The heat used during your fat removal will tighten your connective tissue and skin for immediate skin contraction. BodyTite procedures normally take around 30 – 45 minutes for each area treated. Multiple treatments may be required or suggested by Dr. Hakimi to provide your best outcomes. Recovery typically takes about 5 – 10 days. A compression garment should be worn over the treated areas to promote healing while also holding your new contours. Some outcomes may be visible instantly; however, your final results will be apparent in about 3 – 6 months as the inflammation and swelling subside. Even though the fat that's removed can't return, remaining fat may become larger if you gain weight so it is important to keep a healthy, steady weight after your BodyTite treatment.
