Bodytite RFAL Platform Proven to be a Safe and Effective Device for Energy-Based Liposuction

Online PR News – 14-June-2012 – New York, NY,10019 – The journal article entitled “Radiofrequency-Assisted Liposuction Device for Body Contouring: 97 Patients under Local Anesthesia” by S. Theodorou, R. Paresi, and C. Chia, reports that the BodyTite RFAL platform is a safe and effective device for use as an energy-based liposuction technique under local tumescent anesthesia in the awake patient, with patient satisfaction levels above 80%. The study was conducted under a national Institutional Review Board protocol (IRB) (Essex Institutional Review Board, Inc., Lebanon, NJ) and included 97 patients who underwent RFAL for a total of 132 operations during the period April 2009 through August 2010. The surgical procedures were conducted at bodySCULPT®, the surgeons’ AAAASF accredited surgical facility in New York, NY.

With the BodyTite device, patients received excellent results for face and body contouring procedures. Overall patient satisfaction was 82% for the degree of skin tightening and 85% for the body-contouring result. The overall incidence of major complications was 6.25% and the incidence of minor complications was 8.3%.

Three independent plastic surgeons graded the improvement in body contour as good to excellent in 74.5% of patients and the improvement in skin tightening as good to excellent in 58.5% of patients. The outcomes clearly point to the efficacy and safety of the BodyTite RFAL platform for body contouring and skin tightening.
