Dr. Solomon is pleased to introduce BodyTight®, a Philadelphia body contouring procedure and advancement in helping patients achieve the look they desire. Dr. Solomon developed this method of treatment to remove fat and tighten skin in locations that are traditionally difficult to treat. Like Smartlipo™, BodyTight uses a laser in conjunction with liposuction for Philadelphia women and men to achieve an enhanced body contour. Unlike Smartlipo, BodyTight is designed specifically for the treatment of fat. Using patented technologies, Dr. Solomon is able to achieve dramatic results due to the specific qualities of the laser light itself.
The BodyTight beam specifically targets fat cells, using a special wavelength of light that vaporizes the deposits from underneath the skin. The targeted laser beam also minimizes bruising and tightens skin. While Smartlipo coagulates the blood in small vessels to prevent bleeding, BodyTight’s specifically targeted beam treats fat cells and blood cells to minimize bruising while it vaporizes fat. BodyTight can be used to treat areas of skin that did not shrink after surgery, including areas previously treated with liposuction such as the:
- Upper and lower thighs
- Upper arms
- Difficult to treat “bra strap” and armpit areas
- Male breast tissue
The BodyTight procedure takes about 30 to 45 minutes, depending on the areas being treated. It features no sutures, and most patients are able to return to normal daily activities within a day. Any discomfort from the procedure generally can be treated with over the counter pain relievers. While some results are visible within about two days, four to six weeks after the procedure patients will begin to see tighter, more contoured skin as the tissue adjusts and contracts to the newer, slimmer body.
BodyTight is unique to Dr. Solomon’s practice, and is not currently available elsewhere in the world.
LASERTIGHT® FOR THE FACE
In addition to body contouring, the technology behind BodyTight can be used for facial enhancement through LaserTight®. For instance, LaserTight can treat the lower eyelids, melting the fatty deposits in a short office procedure that requires only local anesthesia and leaves minimal bruising.
