Board-certified plastic surgeon with over 20 years of experience offers patients a way to “obtain surgical results without the scars.”
Houma, LA -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/14/2017 -- Dr. Mark H. Peters, an American Board of Plastic Surgery-certified medical professional with over 20 years of practice experience and more than 10,000 completed procedures to his credit, has become the first cosmetic surgeon in the state of Louisiana to offer the BodyTite procedure. Powered by RFAL (Radio-Frequency Assisted Lipolysis), the procedure provides unprecedented three-dimensional contraction of the dermis, subdermal connective tissue matrix and deep fat, offering patients significantly less downtime for a procedure that removes fat and tightens the skin by delivering rapid and uniform heating of the entire soft tissue matrix.
"This approach can be used to treat anything that can also be liposuctioned," explains Dr. Peters. "As the first cosmetic surgeon to offer this procedure in my state, I'm inviting patients to 'obtain surgical results without the scars' – indeed, the provision of superior internal and external lipolysis delivers body results previously only achieved by way of more extensive excisional surgical procedures. What's more, built-in safeguards including real time measurements of skin temperature, impedance monitoring, power cutoff and audible feedback help ensure patient safety at all times."
Developed by Inmode, BodyTite is considered by many in the plastic surgery industry to be the next-generation of devices for non-excisional skin-tightening – more evolutionary than revolutionary – and represents the market's first and only RFAL product, combining blood vessel coagulation, adipose tissue and simultaneous aspiration with dermal heating that's ultra-precise to attain safe, fast, uniform and consistent results.
Through a special hand piece, RFAL energy is released from an internal cannula and transferred to an external electrode, with targeted energy being generated into the fatty areas and adipose tissue. With a directional application that's precise and controlled to heat-specific targets, RFAL eliminates thermal injury to surrounding tissue while a geometric design for the hand piece and electrode size provide an exact science with regard to how much heat is generated on the skin's surface, thus preventing unwanted thermal buildup.
"Essentially, we're offering a minimally invasive one-step procedure that provides a quicker treatment – at least four times faster than other laser-assisted devices," adds Dr. Peters. "Our patients will experience significant body-firming and fat-reduction results, and those with skin laxity who do not care for the lumpy appearance resulting from liposuction or excisional procedures will find that modern body contouring has definitely turned in their favor."
Ideal for a number of treatment areas that tend to exhibit excess fat including the hips, abdomen, thighs, buttocks, arms, back and knees, the procedure yields a number of benefits encompassing the aforementioned superior body contouring without the need for excisional procedures or the lumpy irregular appearance caused by liposuction, skin contraction of the septae matrix and whole subcutaneous tissue for unparalleled contraction results, directional energy distribution that's controlled to maximize RF utilization in the treated area, improved safety with system safeguards that regulate skin temperature and impedance levels to decrease risks of thermal injuries, avoidance of anesthesia – general or sedation – to reduce traditional liposuction anesthesia risks and decreased patient downtime through the pre-heating of the treatment area, thus allowing gentle extraction of unwanted fat and decreased bruising and swelling.
"Both the Body and FaceTite technologies have recently been FDA-cleared, and our initial experience with it has yielded results that are quite impressive," concludes Dr. Peters. "Both work to contour and sculpt areas of the face and body by destroying excess fat, but the biggest benefit is the significant amount of skin contraction or tightening that can occur; this tightening effect takes place immediately and continues as the healing progresses.
"We're nothing but proud to be the first medical facility in Louisiana to offer this breakthrough procedure."
