"Dr. Williams was awesome! I had plastic surgery from a nationally renowned surgeon in Houston and my incision got infected. Dr Williams treated me for the infection which required antibiotics and additional surgery to removed the infected tissue and another surgery to sew me back up. His work was neater and tighter than the first surgeon’s. I returned for more liposuction later and he did a wonderful job! His staff is very friendly and it’s super easy having procedures performed at his office. Everything was first rate!"- T.C. / Google / May 16, 2019

BodyTite Surgical Technique
BodyTite is generally performed with local anesthesia; however, general anesthesia can be used if you're nervous or having several areas treated. Once you are comfortable and your entry points are numb, the advanced BodyTite cannula will be inserted through minimal incisions in your skin. BodyTite has an external and internal thermometer that will protect your skin from burns. The applicator will liquefy and loosen the fat with radiofrequency waves so the fat is easily removed from your body. The heat and energy used throughout the fat removal process will help to firm your skin and connective tissue for fast and lasting skin contraction. BodyTite sessions can last around 30 – 45 minutes per area, and the treatment is highly effective.
What to Expect from BodyTite
You'll have to recover at home for 5 – 10 days after your BodyTite procedure. A compression garment needs to be worn on the treated areas to encourage healing while maintaining your new contours. Some outcomes will be visible instantly; however, your final results will not be apparent for several months when the inflammation and swelling are gone. Even though the fat that is removed cannot grow back, the remaining fat cells can become bigger if you gain weight so it's crucial to maintain a healthy, steady weight following your BodyTite procedure.
