The challenge of stubborn fat

Losing weight is a complex process involving a healthy diet, regular exercise, and lifestyle changes. But many people find that diet and exercise aren’t always enough to lose those last few inches and achieve their goal weight.

Some areas of your body, like your abdomen, thighs, and love handles, often retain stubborn pockets of fat that refuse to budge no matter what. Genetics, hormonal fluctuations, and aging all contribute to how your body holds onto fat. Unfortunately, traditional weight loss methods may not effectively target these specific areas.

The frustrations of loose skin

In addition to that lingering fat, many people who have lost weight often notice loose or sagging skin. Your skin doesn’t always shrink once the weight is gone, and this can leave you feeling frustrated with your appearance.

That loose skin can add inches to your legs, hips, and abdomen. You might be hesitant to show off your hard work and struggle to find clothes that flatter your new shape.

How BodyTite can help you reach your aesthetic goals

If you’ve worked hard to lose weight but you’re still dealing with trouble spots or sagging skin, it’s time to schedule a BodyTite consultation with Dr. Gracia and our team. 

BodyTite is a revolutionary cosmetic procedure to address stubborn fat pockets' challenges effectively. Unlike traditional liposuction, BodyTite is a minimally invasive treatment that combines liposuction with radiofrequency technology.

This unique combination removes fat and tightens your skin for a comprehensive solution that sculpts and contours your body. Here’s how it works.

The precision of liposuction

After administering anesthesia to keep you comfortable, Dr. Gracia makes small incisions in your treatment area. He inserts a thin cannula and gently aspirates (removes) excess fat.

Liposuction removes unwanted fat from specific areas of your body so you can treat those trouble spots and enjoy immediate results.

The technology of RF skin tightening

What sets BodyTite apart from other liposuction treatments is radiofrequency energy integration. Once Dr. Gracia removes excess fat, the device delivers radiofrequency energy to your treatment area.

The energy tightens the skin and stimulates collagen production. Collagen is a key protein that provides structural support to your skin. It contributes to its firmness and elasticity, and after BodyTite treatment, your skin gradually tightens over time.

BodyTite is a fully customizable aesthetic procedure that could help you achieve your aesthetic goals. Since it’s minimally invasive, it offers quicker recovery times and lower risks than more invasive surgery. Plus, the fat loss results are immediate.

You don’t have to struggle to lose those last few inches! Work with Dr. Gracia to reach your goals and start enjoying all your hard work. Call our office at 817-336-9450 or request an appointment online today.
