The invite to the Belo BodyTite launch said Shanghai Chic, my interpretation: red and black. Standing in front of the car headlights just got me 10x fairer, haha The launch happened last April 14 in Manila Peninsula's ultra stylish Salon de Ning. BodyTite is the latest (and so much better) alternative to the tummy tuck, and to give proof are these pictures of their hot hot HOT endorser Ruffa Gutierrez:

Ruffa G showing off her kickass body! During the launch, she shared to the crowd that she explained to her kids that the reason she decided to flaunt her new body is to serve as an inspiration to all the other mommies.

and flaunt her body, she did! shot by Mark Nicdao, make-up by Steven Doloso, and styled by Pam Quiñones, Ruffa wears swimsuits made especially for her by local designer Charina Sarte and the red dress was by Martin Bautista.

years after Miss World, she's back in her swimsuit and looking great as ever! bit of trivia, this was actually banned in the Ninoy Aquino International Airport coz it's apparently too sexy.

and here she is in the flesh with the woman who spent almost a year convincing her to undergo a surgical procedure, Dra. Vicki Belo. It was ultimately, however, Jinkee Pacquiao's knock-out bod that convinced her to get a BodyTite to get rid of the loose skin she had due to childbirth.

Dra. Vicki's daughter, Crystalle Belo-Henares helping her mom out with the apparatus used for this minimally invasive procedure also known as Radio Frequency Assisted Liposuction.

I really love these women's candor! As they were explaining, they'd occasionally mention the word "law-law" and giggle. "law-law" really is much more striking than loose unwanted skin, haha

One of the things that really impressed me about the Belo Medical Group is their influence not just in the Philippines but internationally as well. Dra. Vicki and Ruffa cited an example of a Singapore-based Brazilian couple who recently came all the way to Manila just to get the BodyTite! I also really admire Dra. Vicki's passion in wanting to revive the Philippines' medical tourism that suffered due to the bus hostage taking.
