Frequently Asked Questions

Am I a good Candidate for BodyTite?

Ideal BodyTite candidates are adults who have unwanted deposits of fat and loose skin that do not respond to changes in diet or exercise.

Patients should be nonsmokers who are in good general health and have realistic expectations for the procedure. While BodyTite eliminates surplus fatty tissue from problem areas, it should not be considered a weight-loss method.

How Does BodyTite Work?

BodyTite uses radio-frequency energy to dissolve stubborn fat deposits and to contract and firm the skin for a smooth, youthful tone.

The outpatient procedure is conducted with local anesthesia or light sedation, depending on the needs of the patient. The thin BodyTite device heats and liquefies excess fat, which is then extracted through a tiny tube known as a cannula.

BodyTite allows your plastic surgeon precise control in modifying skin contours, and its fast-acting, uniform heat gently tightens the skin for seamless results. Because BodyTite is less invasive than other surgical body-contouring treatments, it is accompanied by a faster recovery and less post-procedure discomfort.

What Areas Can BodyTite Treat?

BodyTite can effectively correct fat deposits and loose skin in common trouble spots including:

  • Abdomen
  • Arms
  • Breasts
  • Buttocks
  • Hips
  • Stomach
  • Thighs

For the right patients, BodyTite delivers results that could previously only be achieved with a more invasive treatment such as traditional liposuction, a tummy tuck or an arm lift (brachioplasty).

What are BodyTite Benefits and Results?

In addition to BodyTite’s versatility, other benefits include:

  • Immediate results with little downtime
  • Minimal short-term swelling, bruising and discomfort
  • Natural-looking results with no lumps or residual scars

With a healthy lifestyle that includes a balanced diet and regular exercise, your BodyTite results may last for life.

What is the Recovery time for BodyTite?

BodyTite patients are generally able to return to work and resume light, routine activities within a day or two after treatment.

A compression garment will be worn for a few weeks following the procedure to hold the skin in place as the tissue heals and conforms to its new shape. Patients can typically resume low-impact exercise a couple of weeks after treatment and more intense exercise about four to six weeks after BodyTite treatment.

Your plastic surgeon will review your recovery guidelines with you in detail prior to your procedure and will clear you for increased activity as you heal.
