What is BodyTite?

BodyTite is an exceptional body contouring procedure that uses tiny incisions and radiofrequency energy to coagulate fat and tighten the skin. Unlike liposuction, BodyTite requires smaller incisions and offers additional skin tightening through gentle heating while liquefying and removing fat. This technique offers a superior experience versus more invasive surgical procedures that excise skin and leave scarring. BodyTite is an excellent option for patients looking for body contouring without long downtime or recovery periods and simply want slimmer, more toned results.

Am I a Candidate for BodyTite?

One important thing to note before opting for a BodyTite procedure is that you should be at or near your ideal weight to maintain your results with an established diet and exercise regimen. BodyTite can effectively address stubborn pockets of fat that don’t respond to weight loss and mildly sagging skin. These are most often the result of weight gain or pregnancy, making BodyTite an ideal way to refine your weight loss results without extensive downtime.

How is BodyTite Performed?

BodyTite is typically performed under local anesthesia. After this is administered, a tiny incision is made at the treatment area and a specialized cannula is inserted. This tool administers radiofrequency energy to generate gentle heat to melt fat and stimulate collagen production. Also attached to the handpiece is a specialized disc that sits on top of the skin to monitor temperature and prevent heat damage. The liquefied fat is suctioned out through the cannula, which also coagulates the nearby blood vessels and reduces the amount of downtime required because of bruising and bleeding. Overall, this procedure can take about 15 to 20 minutes

What Can I Expect After BodyTite?

BodyTite requires very little downtime, and you can return home after your procedure. Most patients experience only a little bruising or swelling after treatment, and only mild discomfort. You’ll begin to see results after about two weeks after the swelling starts to subside. It’s important to note that your results will continue to refine for 3-6 months after treatment. Generally, only one treatment is needed for excellent, contoured results. Read our blog to learn more about the benefits of BodyTite here.
