What Is BodyTite?
BodyTite is a minimally invasive body contouring procedure delivering results previously only achieved through more excisional surgical procedures. Bodytite, powered by directional radiofrequency (RF), provides contraction of the dermis, subdermal connective tissue, and adipose tissue coagulation.
How Does BodyTite Treatment Work?
BodyTite is powered by directional RF (radio-frequency) resulting in three-dimensional tissue remodeling through fat coagulation and volumetric heating. The coagulation of fat using RF-induced heat results in radio- frequency assisted lipolysis (RFAL). The special BodyTite applicator is inserted through minimal incisions in your skin. The applicator has an external and internal thermometer to protect you from burns. Doctor will use the applicator to loosen and liquefy the fat using radio-frequency waves so that the fat can be easily suctioned out of your body. The heat used throughout the fat elimination will tighten your skin and connective tissue for instant improvements. BodyTite therapies generally take about 30 – 45 minutes for each area.
Why Choose BodyTite?
BodyTite is minimally invasive – no cutting required.
No cutting means no operating room and no anesthesiologist. Most patients opt for this instead of more invasive procedures such as liposuction, facelift, or tummy tucks- all with similar outcomes.
BodyTite is more affordable.
BodyTite is likely more affordable and longer lasting than other types of facial/body contouring procedures because there is no operating room or anesthesia costs associated with the cost of the procedure.
BodyTite is not painful and we don’t use general anesthesia.
There will be a bit of discomfort but not nearly as uncomfortable as other cosmetic surgeries. 2-3 days of high dose ibuprofen and Percoct may or may not be required. There is some anxiety associated with the procedure because your body will be manipulated while awake.
BodyTite usually only requires one session.
Other facial and body contouring devices such as COOL-SCULPTING require multiple sessions at least 4 weeks apart and take up to 12 weeks to see results. Traditional liposuction has a much longer down time and swelling can last up to 6 months.
BodyTite Before and After Images
BodyTite has minimal downtime.
There will be some swelling and bruising for a few days. The post procedure pain will be minimal and may last 2-3 days. You will be given pain medication before your procedure – a small amount of Percoct, a mild narcotic, and a high dose of ibuprofen. You may not need either but it is available to you.
When you leave our office you will be in a compression garment to avoid excessive swelling and help your skin contract to its new contours. The compression garment must be worn 24 hours per day for 1 or 2 weeks depending on your procedure. After this time you need to wear the garment while sleeping for an additional 2 weeks.
BodyTite gives you quicker results.
Results can be seen within 1 week post-procedure and will continue for up to 6 months.

What to Expect After BodyTite
BodyTite is performed under local anesthesia or light sedation, ensuring patient comfort during the procedure. There may be some mild discomfort and swelling post-treatment, but this typically subsides within a few days.
The duration of a BodyTite procedure depends on the treatment area(s) and the extent of the fat removal, but it generally takes between 1-3 hours.
Recovery time varies among individuals, but most people can return to light activities within a few days and resume regular activities within 1-2 weeks.
Some results may be visible immediately after the procedure, but the final results typically emerge within 3-6 months as the body continues to produce collagen and the skin tightens.
BodyTite results can be long-lasting if maintained with a healthy lifestyle, including regular exercise and a balanced diet.
Potential risks and side effects of BodyTite include infection, temporary numbness, bruising, swelling, and minor skin irregularities.
