We all strive to look and feel our best. Diet and exercise are at the cornerstones of staying fit, but sometimes that is not sufficient. Now you have the answer: BodyTite. With BodyTite, you can reduce fat without having to worry about sagging or wrinkly skin. Patients can now achieve surgical-like results with no large incisional scars, less downtime and long lasting, beautiful results.
What is BodyTite?
BodyTite is a minimally invasive FDA-approved technology that utilizes RFAL (Radio-Frequency Assisted Lipolysis) to help tighten skin and reduce fatty tissue. The radio-frequency thermal energy generated by BodyTite results in contraction of collagen under the skin, production of new collagen and melting of fat. The end result is tightening of the skin with improvement of body contour, without a linear scar and the downtime of a typical excisional surgery. BodyTite is often combined with liposuction since liposuction can result in loose skin in some people with poor skin elasticity.

Ideal BodyTite Candidate
Patients who have mild to moderate loose skin and excess fat are good candidates for BodyTite. Patients who have severe excess skin would most likely be better candidates for an excisional procedure. Overall, patients should be in good overall health and maintain a healthy stable weight. BodyTite is not a weight loss procedure. Patients should have realistic expectations.
Recovery after BodyTite
Depending on the extent of treatment, the downtime can range from 2 to 10 days. Exercise and strenuous activity should be avoided for 3 to 6 weeks after the procedure. Compression garments are generally advised and can help with swelling. Specific post-operative instructions will be provided.
