Re-Contouring Your Face & Body Without Traditional Surgery

Both women and men struggle with areas of excess fat and sagging, and lax skin on both their faces and their bodies. Previously, only a surgical procedure such as a facelift, tummy tuck, or other body lifting procedure could provide significant reshaping and skin tightening. But thanks to advances in radiofrequency technology, you can achieve near surgical results without the scars and other drawbacks of traditional surgical procedures.

Minimally invasive body and face contouring with BodyTite PRO & FaceTite are available to Cypress and Houston women and men exclusively at Basu Aesthetics + Plastic Surgery. Dr. Basu is the only provider in the area to offer the BodyTite PRO technology—a 40-watt system that is significantly faster and more powerful than the typical 23-watt system you'll find elsewhere.

How Does BodyTite PRO/FaceTite Work?

Both BodyTite PRO and FaceTite utilize state-of-the-art, advanced radiofrequency technology to melt fat and tighten skin. In this minimally invasive procedure, one wand glides above the surface of the skin and one is inserted under the skin, emitting radiofrequency waves to tighten the skin on the surface while simultaneously removing fat through liposuction. The result is slimmer, firmer, more youthful looking contours without traditional, excisional surgery or the scars that come with it.

Benefits of BodyTite PRO & FaceTite

In addition to being extremely safe, BodyTite PRO and FaceTite also provide the following advantages:

  • Up to 40% skin contraction observed in clinical studies
  • Leaves no visible scars
  • Requires only local anesthesia or light sedation
  • 15 – 60 minutes per treatment area
  • Minimal downtime
  • Less bruising, swelling, and pain

Perhaps the greatest benefit of BodyTite PRO and FaceTite treatments is the improved confidence and self-esteem people feel once sagging and rolls are replaced with smooth, youthful contours. As a board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Bob Basu has the training and experience to help you get the most from this remarkable treatment.

Who is a candidate for BodyTite PRO & FaceTite?

One of the advantages of BodyTite PRO and FaceTite is that the treatments are extremely versatile. Virtually any area of the face or body that has saggy, lax skin and excess fat can be treated with this platform. This makes it an ideal treatment for:

  • Women who have had babies
  • Individuals who have lost weight
  • Anyone interested in fat reduction who is prone to developing sagging skin
  • People with fullness and loose skin (jowls) in the lower face

Individuals who have lost a significant amount of weight and/or have a great deal of excess skin are probably better candidates for a surgical procedure, such as post weight loss body contouring or a facelift.

Treatment Areas

Dr. Basu can treat just about any area of the face or body with this innovative radiofrequency technology. If you have sagging, wrinkled skin and/or unwanted rolls or bulges, this treatment will likely help you. Following are a few of the more commonly treated concerns:

  • Jowls, double chin, and "turkey neck"
  • Upper arms
  • Abdomen, waist, and flanks
  • Male chest/breasts
  • Inner and outer thighs
  • Bra fat

BodyTite PRO and FaceTite shape, tighten, and lift all of these areas without a scalpel or a scar.

See how the BodyTite PRO technology works.

Your BodyTite PRO or FaceTite Procedure

The BodyTite PRO and FaceTite treatments can be performed under local anesthesia or light sedation in our Cypress facility. Your treatment area will be cleansed and marked as part of your preparation for the procedure. Dr. Basu will select either the FaceTite or the BodyTite PRO applicator, depending on the treatment area.

A small opening is made in the skin for the radiofrequency wand which is eased beneath the skin in the treatment area. The skin is "sandwiched" between this wand and the external radiofrequency transmitter, so the tissue is heated from both the inside and the outside. Dr. Basu will gently pass the instrument over (and through) the tissues in the treatment area to both melt the fat and tighten the skin. A typical treatment takes 15 to 60 minutes.

Because Dr. Basu offers the new, 40-watt BodyTite PRO technology, his patients enjoy almost 50% shorter treatment times and enhanced comfort. Since this upgraded technology offers variable power and speed, Dr. Basu can further customize treatments for his patients.

Your Recovery & Results

You will be discharged after your treatment, and you can go home and return to most routine activities. As you recover from your procedure, Dr. Basu asks you to wear a compression garment full time for a few days, then only at night for approximately 2 weeks. This helps with optimal healing and shaping the new contours of your face or body.

One of the top concerns Dr. Basu hears from patients is how much pain is involved with this—or any—procedure. The answer is highly dependent on the extent of the treatment and the individual’s pain threshold.

Most patients report swelling, some bruising, and soreness in the treatment areas for a few days after treatment. The discomfort is often compared to the muscle soreness after a tough workout. By most accounts, the recovery is more comfortable than that of liposuction.

Results are immediate, but full results emerge over the course of up to 6 months. Most patients only require one treatment.

Until recently there hasn't been an effective, nonsurgical alternative to facelift or neck lift procedures. EmbraceRF fills that treatment gap with an innovative procedure that combines the FaceTite technology with a device that molds the fat just below the skin's surface to create more youthful contours of the lower face. Dr. Basu is one of the first plastic surgeons to offer this breakthrough treatment.

HOW DOES EMBRACERF WORK?

The heat generated under the skin's surface by radiofrequency energy "molds" the fat that can accumulate in the lower portion of the face and the neck. Precisely molding the fat, instead of removing it using liposuction, creates a natural-looking youthfulness along the jawline and neck. Additionally, the heat tightens the skin.

BENEFITS OF EMBRACERF

Women and men who choose the EmbraceRF treatment enjoy many benefits, especially when compared to more invasive procedures such as a facelift or neck lift. EmbraceRF:

  • Requires only a single treatment
  • Can be performed using a local anesthetic
  • Uses proven technology with consistent results
  • Requires minimal downtime

As is true with FaceTite, the primary benefit of EmbraceRF is that patients look as young as they feel and are more confident in their appearances.

WHO IS A CANDIDATE FOR EMBRACERF?

EmbraceRF is an ideal treatment for people who aren't ready for a surgical facelift or neck lift but whose skin is too loose to have liposuction to remove unwanted fat. Candidates for EmbraceRF are:

  • Individuals with age-related changes on the face and neck who are active, motivated, and healthy
  • Women and men with unwanted wrinkles and pockets of fat in the lower face and neck with only mild to moderate loose skin
  • Patients who have already had a facelift or neck lift and want to tighten skin that becomes lax over the years

If you have moderate to severe skin laxity, you may be better served by a more invasive procedure like a facelift or neck lift. EmbraceRF can also be combined with other cosmetic procedures, such as a brow lift or eyelid rejuvenation.

YOUR EMBRACERF PROCEDURE

The EmbraceRF procedure works above and below the skin. It's performed in our office in 2 steps. Before beginning the procedure, Dr. Basu's nurse may provide medication to help you relax. Dr. Basu injects a local anesthetic into the treatment area or areas before beginning the first step, which involves inserting the small wand used for FaceTite treatments. The second step involves treating the skin's surface with a separate device. Most patients say the procedure involves minimal discomfort.

The procedure typically takes only 45 minutes and requires only one treatment.

YOUR RECOVERY & RESULTS

Dr. Basu provides patients with detailed instructions and it's important to closely follow them. The downtime is minimal, with most patients comfortable enough to return to work the day after their treatments. Expect some mild to moderate swelling, bruising, and redness in the treatment area that resolves after a few days. In most cases, you can shower 24 to 48 hours after the treatment. Returning to exercise and more intense activities typically is fine 1 to 2 weeks after the treatment. Most patients feel comfortable going to a public setting within 3 to 4 days of the procedure.

You'll notice the results as the swelling goes away, and the improvements will continue for several months. The natural aging process continues, but you should enjoy the results of the EmbraceRF treatment for years.
