Liposuction (also referred to as Lipectomy, Lipoplasty and Liposculpture) is a plastic surgery procedure that has been available for many years. In the past decade, thanks to modernized and greatly improved technologies, it has become one of the most popular and safe plastic surgery procedures for both men and women.
Used on all areas of the body to sculpt a more slender shape and improve proportions, the procedure surgically removes unwanted localized fat deposits using a thin cannula, which is attached to a suction pump. The cannula is inserted through small incisions in the skin and gently suctions out the fat below.
BodyTITE Radio-Frequency Assisted Liposuction (RFAL) is a revolutionary new technology that tightens skin up to 40% more than traditional liposuction. By melting stubborn fat tissue, RFAL removes fat gently and easily, creating a smoother final contour. Dr. Bray is one of the first plastic surgeons in Canada to offer this cutting edge type of liposuction.
It is common practice to treat several areas in a single session for a full-body sculpting and contouring effect, resulting in a slimmer, more pleasing silhouette. Some of the problem areas treated are commonly referred to as "saddle bags", under arm flab "Bat wings" "love handles", "Muffin Tops", "cankles", "Man Boobs", "Moobs" and "Double Chin".
Liposuction is the only way to reduce those fatty deposits, in a safe way, when diet and exercise doesn't work. Body Sculpting with Liposuction may be done under local anesthetic with or without sedation, or a full general anesthetic depending on the size and number of areas being treated. Surgical compression garments are worn for a period of time afterward to provide support and reduce swelling and bruising. They are easily hidden under clothing.
Outer Hip and Thigh Liposuction / Saddlebag Liposuction Sculpting It is a procedure to remove excessive fatty deposits that accumulate on the hip and outer thigh area causing what is commonly referred to as Saddlebags. This problem can be very frustrating for women who are in great shape but are still unable to get rid of the stubborn fatty bulges that make the lower body appear disproportionate and bulky. BodyTite liposuction is able to melt the resistant fatty tissue while tightening the skin for a smoother final contour. The procedure can dramatically improve the shape and proportions of the lower body.
The procedure only requires very small incisions to remove the fat and sculpt the thigh and hip area. These incision marks fade with time leaving no tell-tale signs of surgery. A garment is worn during the recovery period to reduce swelling, offer support and keep the shape firm.
Inner Thigh Liposuction:
To eliminate the excess fat on the upper inner thigh area that may cause thighs to rub together. Having a gap between the upper thighs is considered the aesthetic ideal and has gained a lot of media attention lately due to runway models having an extremely large gap between their inner thighs. The inner thighs are a very tricky area to treat so it requires a very experienced plastic surgeon. BodyTITE works well in this area as it tightens the skin while removing fat avoiding loose skin appearance.
Buttocks And Thigh Liposuction:
It is a Lipo-sculpting procedure to remove fat deposits from the buttock and thigh area to improve shape, reduce size and/or projection of the buttocks. BodyTITE Liposuction technology tightening the skin while removing the fat deposits offering a smooth tight and even result. The procedure can improve symmetry offering a shapelier backside and slenderized body silhouette. Banana Roll Liposuction Toronto (bulge below buttocks and back of upper thigh) – eliminating the banana shaped roll is a challenging problem because it’s usually a combination of loose, sagging skin not just excess fat. If you just remove the fat with liposuction you can aggravate drooping of the buttocks making it worse. BodyTITE liposuction may work in some cases but it’s very patient-dependent. In most cases it is better to treat the banana roll in context of an overall buttock shaping and/or lifting procedure, combined with fat grafting and sculpting.
A surgery done to slim and shape this area, one of two procedures utilizing BodyTITE technology can be performed:
• Inner Knee Liposuction: Particularly beneficial for removing fat from small targeted areas Bodytite liposuction works well for removing fatty bulges that can often accumulate on the inner knee area. BodyTITE creates a slimmer, more appealing shape with the use of a very small cannula, which is carefully inserted through a tiny incision on the inner side of the knee to remove excess fat. Doing this also improves the contour and proportion of the calf area, giving a more toned and defined appearance to the lower leg.
• Knee Lift/Skin Tightening: Skin on the knee area can become loose and wrinkly after weight loss or from aging. BodyTITE technology can help tighten this area, creating a smoother final appearance.
Calf, knee and Ankle Liposuction Sculpting And Contouring:
This is a procedure meant for women who are not overweight, but genetically predisposed to have excess fat in their ankles, calves and/or knees. The knees, ankles and calves are also difficult areas to treat and require a highly experienced plastic surgeon for best results.
BodyTITE liposuction works well at removing small amounts of fat from each of these areas. By removing fat from the ankles and knees while tightening the skin simultaneously it creates a more proportionate and defined calf area for a more appealing lower leg shape. These procedures can be done separately or in combination. Back Liposuction Sculpting (Upper "Bra Bulge", and lower back rolls).
The upper "Bra Back" bulge and lower back roll are common areas for fat accumulation, and for the appearance of fibrous tissue, which is difficult to remove with traditional liposuction. BodyTITE Liposuction technology is able to melt the rubbery fibrous tissue, thereby making it easier to extract in a more gentle way. It also tightens the skin simultaneously leaving a smooth and even appearance.
Upper Arm Liposuction Sculpting:
Dubbed the “bat wing”, the loose, floppy skin found on the upper arm has traditionally been best treated with a brachioplasty (arm lift). BodyTITE Liposuction, however, offers the potential to tighten loose skin while also avoiding a long scar on the inner side of the upper arm. One tiny incision is all that’s required for this procedure.
Liposuction Scar Correction With BodyTITE technology:
Scarring in areas where previous Liposuction or surgery has been performed can make repeat Liposuction difficult and less effective. BodyTITE technology is able to penetrate tough scar tissue in these areas while also enhancing skin tightening that might otherwise be exhausted.
FaceTITE and NeckTITE Liposuction/Contouring:
A new rejuvenation treatment for those who don't need or want a full surgical face and/or neck lift, FaceTITE and NeckTITE treatments are usually performed under light sedation. Though the procedures don’t offer the dramatic result experienced with a full face or neck lift, both deliver a significant improvement over laser or other surface treatments. The procedure is performed by placing a tiny incision inconspicuously under the chin, where a small amount of fat can be removed.
