Skin laxity and stubborn fat deposits are realities that many people face, and they are often resistant to diet and exercise alone. Traditional surgical options, like liposuction or tummy tucks, are available but can come with lengthy recovery times since they are more invasive procedures. BodyTite is a minimally invasive treatment option that can give you a tighter, more contoured appearance.

Our multidisciplinary team comprises a primary care physician with a focus on emergency medicine and family practice, as well as a plastic surgeon and a nurse practitioner.

What Is BodyTite?
BodyTite is a revolutionary treatment that employs radiofrequency-assisted lipolysis (RFAL) technology. What sets it apart is its dual-action mechanism: it melts away fat while simultaneously tightening the skin. The technology works via a BodyTite device that has both an internal and external probe to ensure comprehensive treatment.
Controlled and precise, the BodyTite device emits radiofrequency energy to targeted fat deposits. The energy liquefies the fat for easier removal while promoting collagen production in the skin. This dual process leads to fat reduction and skin tightening in a single session, providing a minimally invasive alternative to more traditional surgical methods.
What Areas Can Be Treated With BodyTite?
- Arms: Improve the appearance of your upper arms with targeted BodyTite body contouring.
- Legs: Address issues like sagging skin and excess fat in the thighs and calves.
- Abdomen: Flatten and tighten your midsection with this effective body sculpting procedure.
- Buttocks: Lift and firm your rear area with a body contouring treatment that minimizes sagging and smoothes the skin.
- Back: Eliminate stubborn fat pockets and tighten loose skin in the upper and lower back regions.
What Are the Benefits of BodyTite?
BodyTite has the ability to both firm and tighten your skin. The BodyTite skin tightening technology promotes collagen production, giving you a more youthful and toned appearance. This can make it a valuable addition to other body contouring options which may not be able to address skin laxity.
Along with skin tightening, BodyTite excels in eliminating stubborn fat deposits. The radiofrequency technology used in BodyTite fat reduction liquefies fat cells, making them easier to remove either through natural process or liposuction.
A Minimally Invasive Option
Unlike traditional surgical methods that require extensive downtime, BodyTite skin tightening is a minimally invasive option. This makes the treatment a convenient choice for those looking to avoid lengthy recovery periods.
Precise and Targeted Treatments
BodyTite allows for a high level of precision, focusing solely on the area that requires treatment. This is especially beneficial for individuals looking to target specific pockets of fat or areas of skin laxity.
Can Make Liposuction Easier
For those considering liposuction, BodyTite body contouring can be a complementary treatment. The radiofrequency technology helps to liquefy fat, making it easier to remove during a liposuction procedure.
BodyTite Treatment Steps
Step 1: Anesthetic
Before the treatment begins, a local anesthetic is applied to the target area. This numbing agent ensures that you’ll be comfortable and pain-free during the process. It’s a standard first step that helps set the stage for a smooth treatment process.
Step 2: Incision Placement
A small incision is made in the area you’re looking to treat. This allows for the insertion of the BodyTite device and is a pivotal part of the body sculpting treatment. The incision is strategically placed to minimize visible scarring.
Step 3: Treatment With the BodyTite Cannula
The BodyTite device is carefully inserted through the incision. Its cannula emits radiofrequency energy, working to liquefy fat cells and tighten the skin. This is the core action stage where BodyTite delivers its dual benefits of fat reduction and skin tightening.
Step 4: Liposuction (If Included)
If your treatment plan incorporates liposuction, this is the step where it occurs. The previously liquefied fat is easily removed, allowing for a more efficient liposuction process. This adds an extra level of refinement to your body contouring.
Step 5: Closure and Recovery
Once the treatment is complete, the area will be bandaged. You likely won’t need sutures after BodyTite. Next, you’ll be provided with specific aftercare instructions to ensure a smooth recovery. Typically, the healing period following a body contouring treatment is quicker than that of more invasive surgical options.
Is BodyTite Suitable for Weight Loss?
While BodyTite can effectively remove unwanted fat pockets and tighten skin, it’s not a weight-loss solution. The treatment is designed for body contouring and is most effective when used to target specific areas of concern rather than for overall weight reduction.
How Long Does BodyTite Last?
The effects of BodyTite fat reduction can be long-lasting, especially when accompanied by a healthy lifestyle. The fat cells that are removed do not regenerate, but it’s crucial to maintain your weight to maximize the longevity of your results.
Who Is a Good Candidate for BodyTite?
A good candidate for BodyTite is someone who is happy with their overall weight, but has stubborn fat or skin laxity. It’s also important for candidates to have realistic expectations and understand that while BodyTite can improve the contour and appearance of your body, it is not a substitute for significant weight loss.
