"This review is well overdue, but now you can be certain I am certain of my results! My skin wasn't horrid, but as it turns out, it needed work. I would get the usual lady cycle breakouts (even at 31) and the occasional pimple here and there. It would take 2-3 weeks to clear up. Who has time for that?! And then I was introduced to Felicia. Felicia put me on a ZO regimen in July. It took about a month for my skin texture to change. I did not even know that was a thing! My skin texture was smoother, brighter, and tighter! The compliments were rolling in!Fast forward to 6-7 months in, and if I may be self indulgent, am in love with my face. I always secretly wanted to be able to walk out of the house with no makeup (always sunscreen!) and look fantastic. With Felicia's guidance, I have been able to achieve that goal. My makeup consists of a tube of mascara, as I am confident enough not to hide behind foundation, CC cream, etc. It wasn't an overnight change, there are days where my face is itchy, there have been series of days of constant peeling and redness. However, I stuck with it, Felicia was a constant support, and I am so thankful I did."- R.B. / Yelp / Mar 13, 2018

"Breast Implant Removal and Liposuction - The staff at Elevate was amazing from scheduling my consultation down to the actual procedure. I had two separate procedures performed by Dr. Hanz the first one being a breast implant removal and the second one was liposuction. Dr. Hanz and his staff were very helpful in answering all of my questions and concerns. My continued care after the procedures has been substantial as well. I would highly recommend Dr. Hanz and his staff for any of your cosmetic needs."- H. / RealSelf / Jan 30, 2018
BodyTite is a minimally invasive treatment that offers excellent results. It is not recommended for patients with excessive sagging skin and signs of advanced aging, nor should it be a solution for weight loss. Patients should be at a healthy weight when considering this treatment. It is best used for smaller areas that need targeted contouring. The best candidates for BodyTite treatments wish to:
- Avoid plastic surgery and surgical recovery, downtime, and scarring
- Reduce stubborn areas of fat
- Improve the appearance of wrinkled skin and sagging areas
- Improve the contour and silhouette of the body
- Improve tightness and firmness in areas where skin laxity resides
What to Expect
BodyTite is performed at Elevate Medical Spa and Cosmetic Surgery in one of our accredited treatment rooms. Most patients will find the procedure comfortable with a local anesthesia, but depending on the area being treated, general anesthesia may be used. Unlike surgical body lifts or skin tightening procedures where larger incisions are made, BodyTite requires a small 3mm incision in the skin so the cannula can effectively enter the skin. An internal and external thermometer will protect the patient from burns as it heats, loosens, and liquefies the fat with radiofrequency waves. After a few minutes of performing this step, the fat is suctioned out of the body and will continue to leave the body after the procedure is over with the body's natural elimination process. The heat used during the procedures stimulates the production of collagen, essentially working to tighten the skin and connective tissue for immediate skin contraction. The BodyTite procedure typically takes about 30 – 45 minutes per area treated. Dr. Parker and/or Dr. Hanz will evaluate and determine if a single session or if multiple sessions may be needed for optimal results.
After the procedure, patients will be released home to rest for a couple of days. There will be some swelling in the treated areas, which usually resolves in about a week. We recommend patients take it easy and avoid rigorous activity for about two weeks. A compression garment will be supplied and patients should wear this over the treated areas to promote healing while maintaining the new body shape. Many patients notice their results immediately after treatment, but as the collagen continues to work under the skin, optimal results usually are seen within 3 – 6 months. It is important that patients adhere to a healthy lifestyle after a BodyTite treatment. While the fat that is removed cannot return, new fat cells can develop and the remaining fat cells can grow larger if the patient gains weight.
