Minimally Invasive Body Contouring in Macon, GA
Body contouring is a highly sought after procedure, but many patients would like to avoid surgery and other invasive techniques if at all possible. At the Georgia Center for Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, we are proud to offer a range of non-surgical and minimally invasive body contouring solutions to the residents of Macon, Houston County and Warner Robins, GA.
What is Minimally Invasive Body Contouring?
Minimally invasive body contouring, also known as body sculpting, is a cosmetic technique that can reduce stubborn fat and loose skin on the body. This treatment can significantly enhance the figure to produce a firmer and more toned appearance. The main characteristic that sets these treatments apart is the fact that they don’t require any surgery or invasive techniques. This means no scarring, less downtime, and more affordable treatment. We offer the following treatments to patients looking for minimally invasive body contouring solutions:
BodyTite® uses radiofrequency technology to simultaneously remove fat and tighten the skin. This can be used on many areas of the body but is most commonly used for the abdomen, waist, thighs, arms and even the breasts.
FaceTite® uses the same technology as BodyTite®, but in a system specialized for the face. With FaceTite®, patients can address loose skin in the cheeks, jawline and the neck to achieve a more youthful appearance. Some fat reduction benefits may also be possible.
AccuTite is a new body contouring solution and the smallest of its kind. It uses the same technology as BodyTite® and FaceTite® but in a smaller package. The AccuTite treatment is ideal for small, specific cosmetic concerns like facial wrinkles, abdominal etching or hand treatments.
