Do you feel like you have tried everything you can to achieve your trim and toned body “goal”- but you
still can’t seem to motivate some areas to cooperate? Unfortunately, a healthy lifestyle paired with diet
and exercise alone does not always provide the desired results on areas that are difficult to target for
There are options available that may help, such as traditional surgical liposuction, but along with that
comes several huge factors to think about:
- lax skin post liposuction surgery
- risk of bleeding or infection
There is another option for those who want a minimally-invasive procedure to remove excess fat and
tone/firm the skin: BodyTite. This is a great solution for individuals who are looking to reduce fat
without the saggy, wrinkly skin left after weight loss, natural aging, pregnancy, or having a liposuction
surgical procedure alone.
What is BodyTite?
BodyTite is an FDA-approved, minimally-invasive procedure that melts fat cells and tightens skin
simultaneously. BodyTite uses RFAL (Radio-Frequency Assisted Liposuction) technology to remove
stubborn fat cells without affecting the surrounding healthy tissue. It is a new technology created by
InMode that comes in a workstation with a special handheld device and is performed in our office.
What can I expect during a BodyTite procedure?
Skin tightening. BodyTite uses a thin cannula and directional radio-frequency energy to heat deeper
layers of skin. The temperatures, both internal and external, are carefully controlled and monitored with
precise readouts to ensure that overheating or damage to surrounding tissues does not occur. Heating
the deeper skin layers, such as the dermis and sub-dermis cause the tissues to coagulate and tighten
from the inside out. Results will continually improve over time as the skin is stimulated to produce more
Lipolysis. BodyTite can help patients achieve their ideal body shape by addressing stubborn pockets of
fat. This technology gently heats fat cells to temperatures that cause them to die – reducing the amount
of fat cells, so you look more toned and slim. During treatment, radiofrequency is delivered below the
skin via the cannula for fat coagulation. Fat is liquefied as the radiofrequency passes to the external
electrode for collagen contractions. Not only does the reduction in fat create a smoother appearance,
but encouraging collagen contractions helps create a more contoured appearance.
What areas can be addressed with BodyTite?
- thighs (inner and outer)
What are the potential side effects of BodyTite?
After a BodyTite procedure, you may experience:
- temporarily uneven skin
Not every patient experiences the same side effects, and most side effects will subside within a few days
The recovery period is minimal. After the procedure, you will need a ride home from the clinic as driving
may not be safe, and walking could be painful. You may also need a couple of days off work, but most
people can return to work within two days of having BodyTite performed. Be sure to go to your follow-up appointments so the doctor can assess your healing progress and give you clearance for certain
Results can be seen immediately, with the best results most noticeable after 6 weeks, and continuing up
to 12 months. Results will continually improve over time as the skin is stimulated to produce
more collagen. Collagen is a structure that helps keep skin supple, soft, and strong. A healthy
diet and exercise program should still be maintained in order to prolong BodyTite results. And,
always use sun protection if you are going to be outdoors for an extended period of time.
What are the benefits BodyTite over traditional liposuction?
- No large incisions
- Smoother looking results
- Better contraction of skin
- Does not require general anesthesia
- Quicker recovery
Results will vary for each person and treatment area. However, most people enjoy an immediately
contoured appearance that gradually improves. For most, one treatment session is enough to achieve
Am I a good candidate for BodyTite?
Treatments with BodyTite can be helpful if you want to see improved skin tightness and a more
contoured body in one or several areas of your body. Most healthy adults who are frustrated with
stubborn pockets of fat or excess skin may benefit from BodyTite. It is important to have realistic
expectations for treatment, and this is not intended to be used as a weight-loss treatment. BodyTite is
not intended for significant weight-loss and it’s recommended to be near your weight goal before
