What is RF liposuction?

Liposuction is a procedure in which a surgeon removes unwanted fat from target areas, like your buttocks or thighs, using a suctioning device. Radiofrequency takes liposuction to another level. The thermal energy promotes skin tightening and coagulates fat to make it easier to remove.

At Chestnut Wellness, the team uses BodyTite™ and FaceTite™ to perform the minimally invasive procedure. 

What areas can you treat with RF liposuction?

The team at Chestnut Wellness treats many areas of the body and face using RF liposuction. These include the:

  • Jowls
  • Cheeks
  • Chin area
  • Neck
  • Arms
  • Inner and outer thighs
  • Buttocks
  • Upper knees
  • Hips
  • Abdomen

Men who have enlarged breasts also elect RF liposuction to get a more manly physique. 

What happens during RF liposuction?

Dr. Blatchford numbs the predetermined treatment areas with a local anesthetic.  Once you are numb, he makes a small incision and guides a radiofrequency electrode into the area. As the RF waves liquify the fat, a suctioning device removes the fat from your body via a cannula (tiny tube). The RF energy also promotes collagen production to firm and tone the treatment area. 

Why should I consider RF liposuction?

RF liposuction helps remove fat from areas in your body that just aren’t responsive to traditional diet and exercise. The procedure can help you achieve a physique that helps you feel good about yourself. 

RF liposuction uses very small incisions, so scarring is minimal. You have little chance of infection and experience only slight bruising, pain, and discomfort during recovery. 

RF liposuction also gives Dr. Blatchford precise control over your procedure so you get better results than you might with traditional liposuction. Traditional liposuction can sometimes leave you with sagging skin, but RF liposuction stimulates collagen production and skin tightening to prevent laxity. 

What is it like to recover from RF liposuction?

Recovery from RF liposuction takes just 1-2 days. Many people return to work the day after their procedure. You will have some movement restrictions immediately after your procedure but can return to most normal activities more quickly than you might with traditional liposuction or more invasive surgeries.
