Most people have both loose skin and areas of excess fat on their body that they'd love to fix without an invasive body lift and surgical liposuction. BodyTite is an innovative, minimally invasive liposuction treatment, which also tightens your skin with minimal recovery time. The radiofrequency-assisted liposuction (RFAL) in BodyTite allows plastic surgeon Dr. Edward Lee to efficiently help his patients in Houston, TX enhance their body shape. BodyTite is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to safely eliminate fat and improve skin laxity without any scars for fast results. Schedule an appointment at Nuveau Plastic Surgery to find out more about BodyTite, as well as other treatment choices for fat removal and sagging skin.
At Nuveau Plastic Surgery, Dr. Lee and his team also provide AccuTite to target small, precise areas of the body. As a separate handpiece utilized on the same BodyTite technology, AccuTite is the smallest, minimally invasive radiofrequency device and is great for targeting delicate areas. Within your consultation, Dr. Lee will determine if BodyTite, AccuTite, or a combination of the two is ideal for your specific needs and concerns.
"Dr. Lee is very personable! He is always very thoughtful and kind. If you are looking to get a procedure done, he will be able to kindly guide you through the process. Very seldom do you meet a doctor who is as considerate and relational as Dr. Lee!"- J.B. / Facebook / Mar 12, 2017

"I just happen to run across Dr. Lee on the internet searching for a Dr. to do a breast augmentation and possible tummy tuck. Had never even considered having this before and was very nervous. Went to one other consultation with another Dr. in the Houston area and found out he was actually only a dermatologist and wasn’t board certified in plastic surgery. I decided to get another quote and I am so glad that I did. Even though I lost $500 dollars that I had put down with t...he first Dr.. i let Dr. Lee know what it was that I was looking for and he let me know right away what I needed. He could have charged me more and even could have said that I needed more than what I did but he did not. He did not have to do a lift on me for my breast and he did not have to do lipo in me either and in both cases he could have told me I needed this and I would not have known the difference - but he didn’t. I was impressed with the fact that he has been doing this for only 7 years would be up to date on the procedures and possible new ways of doing these procedures rather than a dr that had been doing this for 20 plus years. Dr. Lee was worried due to the fact that I was a smoker. He almost seemed as if he may not even be interested in doing my surgery due to this fact. That was even impressive. He could have cared less and just seen dollar signs but he didn’t. I let him know I was super serious about this and would stop immediately if he would get me right in to do surgery so that I wouldn’t change my mind like I had in the past due to other obligations. He told me I would have to wait 6 weeks and the. He could do the surgery if I stopped smoking then. I promised. He kept his part of the bargain and so did I. I am proud to say that I have now had surgery almost 2 weeks ago and still haven’t smoked. Won’t go back. Thanks to Dr. Lee and Mrs. Eva I won’t go back to smoking. My surgery went flawlessly and the results are amazing. The Dr. knew exactly what I needed and did a perfect job. He eased all of my fears and it went way better than what I expected. Would recommend Dr. Lee to anyone wanting to enhance their looks. They offer a lot of different services and I would let them do any of them on me if I needed. Now Mrs Eva if the Drs right hand in my opinion. She was amazing and could have ignored me because god knows I ask her every question under the sun regarding my procedures and she handled me with nothing but respect. When she didn’t have too. I love her to pieces and she makes you feel so comfortable during the entire process."- M.S. / Facebook / Mar 22, 2020
"10 days post “mommy makeover” and have to write a review because of how smooth the process was and how wonderful Dr. Lee is. Great bedside manner and superb skill level. You can tell he takes pride in his work and strives to get his patients the best possible outcome. Recovery process has been smooth thankfully. I was back to work 1 week post surgery. Also, Dr. Lee really listens to your concerns and works with you as a team. He even called me over Christmas to review a post op concern I had emailed him about. Eva in the office is also wonderful. Highest recommendations!"- D. / Google / Dec 28, 2019

Ideal Candidates For BodyTite
BodyTite can be helpful if you would like to see better skin tightness and contours in one or multiple regions of your body. You might be a candidate for BodyTite if you would like to get rid of pockets of fat and also improve the overall look of sagging, wrinkled skin. You might have thought about traditional liposuction or body lift surgery but would prefer to minimize surgical scarring and recovery time. Many areas of the body may be treated with BodyTite, but a few of the common areas patients would like help with are the stomach, chest, arms, thighs, and knees. In your consultation, Dr. Lee will pay attention to your needs and goals before helping you decide if BodyTite is right for you.
The BodyTite procedure is generally performed with local anesthesia; however, general anesthesia may be used if you're nervous or having several areas treated. The advanced BodyTite applicator is inserted through very small incisions in your skin. BodyTite has an internal and external thermometer to protect you from burns. The applicator will loosen and liquefy the fat using radiofrequency waves so the fat is easily suctioned from your body. The heat used during the fat elimination will tighten your connective tissue and skin for instant improvements. BodyTite therapies generally take around 30 – 45 minutes for each area. Several treatments may be needed or suggested by Dr. Lee to provide your best results.
What to Expect After BodyTite
You'll have to recover at home for 5 – 10 days after your BodyTite procedure. A compression garment should be worn over the treated areas to encourage healing while also holding your new contours. Some results may be seen immediately; however, your final results will not be apparent for 3 – 6 months when the inflammation and swelling subside. While the fat that's removed can't return, the remaining fat can become larger if you gain weight so it's very important to keep a healthy, steady weight following your BodyTite procedure.
