What is BodyTite™?

BodyTite™ is a minimally-invasive skin tightening procedure that produces surgical results without the scars! This is possible thanks to RFAL (radio-frequency assisted lipolysis) technology, which gently melts fat under the skin while simultaneously treating the skin’s surface for enhanced tightening. Although Dr. Rodriguez performs VASERLipo® as part of the BodyTite™ procedure, the ideal candidate for BodyTite™ has little excess fat and desires mainly skin tightening. This procedure results in a comprehensive body sculpting treatment that can eliminate fat and tighten the skin with only the tiniest of scars. BodyTite™ is a versatile treatment that can be used to treat the arms, legs, hips, abdomen, and stubborn bra fat.

How is a BodyTite™ Treatment Performed?

BodyTite™ is an office based procedure that is performed under oral sedation with additional local and tumescent anesthesia. Patients remain comfortable for the entirety of their session, lasting between 2 – 3 hours. VASER energy is delivered to prepare the tissues for the BodyTite™. The BodyTite™ treatment is then performed using the unique BodyTite™ handpiece. This device consists of a tiny cannula and gentle heating component. The cannula is inserted under the skin via tiny incisions in the desired area. Then, it begins to heat the surrounding skin and fat using bi-polar radio-frequency energy. The BodyTite™ handpiece measures the internal and external skin temperatures to ensure effective treatment and safety. This process combines gentle skin heating from above and below the surface, powered by the bi-polar radio-frequency energy. Visible skin tightening is observed during the procedure, and at the end, the melted fat is gently extracted through the liposuction cannula without damaging the surrounding skin and tissue. This powerful procedure tightens the skin in one single treatment, giving the body a smooth and toned appearance.

What Results Can I Expect from BodyTite™?

Results from BodyTite™ are visible immediately after treatment. However, skin tightening and body contouring will continue to improve as a result of increased collagen in the body. This means that results will be most noticeable 6 – 8 weeks after treatment. Patients will have some swelling and some soreness a few days after treatment, but these are short-term effects that fade in a few weeks. Although the skin tightening results after BodyTite™ are permanent, we can’t stop the march of time and the natural aging process. There is minimal scarring and no long-term side effects from BodyTite™.

What is Recovery Like Following BodyTite™?

BodyTite™ uses gentle radio-frequency energy and minimally-invasive techniques, which greatly accelerates the recovery time when compared to more invasive body sculpting procedures. Patients can generally expect to resume work and light activities within days of their appointment, with the ability to resume normal activities after approximately seven to 10 days. During your consultation with Dr. Rodriguez, he will explain what you can expect regarding recovery, as well as any specific instructions to be followed.
