BodyTite is a breakthrough in-office liposuction procedure that is only available in our state at MS Center for Plastic Surgery. With BodyTite you will see substantial fat reduction and body firming results in areas such as the abdomen, hips, buttocks, thighs, knees, arms, back, and other areas of unwanted fat deposits. This can be a great option if you have skin laxity and do not want an excisional procedure or the lumpy irregular appearance commonly associated with traditional liposuction.

What are the benefits of treatment?

Fat Reduction

BodyTite uses patented RFAL technology to gently melt and remove excess fat through an incision in an inconspicuous location. By pre-melting the fat, the removal is a far less traumatic process, greatly reducing post-procedural pain, swelling, or discomfort. BodyTite will eliminate fatty deposits and provide improvements to re-contour your body and provide you with the most advanced, uniform treatment in the market.

Body Tightening

One of the unique features of BodyTite is its ability to safely and precisely heat the soft tissue being contoured. This gentle and deep heating will lead to significant body tightening, often with soft tissue contraction of up to 40%.

Additional Benefits

  • Superior body contouring
  • Significant body-tightening results up to 40% skin contraction observed in clinical studies)
  • Uniform treatment
  • Consistent results
  • Less bruising, swelling, and pain
  • Shorter downtime
  • State of the art safety monitoring

What areas can be treated?

Typical BodyTite treatment areas include the abdomen, hips, buttocks, thighs, knees, upper arms, and back, along with other areas of fat deposits. It can also be used in conjunction with other treatments for an effective combination treatment.

Am I a candidate?

You are a candidate if you demonstrate realistic expectations, are in general good health, but have frustrating areas of excess fat that are resistant to diet and exercise.

How quickly will I see results?

Results can be seen immediately, with best results noticeable after 6-12 weeks.

What should I expect with pain, swelling & bruising?

Clients may experience minor bruising and numbness immediately after BodyTite but much less than after traditional liposuction. Numbness will wear off throughout the course of the day, and patients may use prescribed anti-inflammatoy or pain medication. Clients can expect the swelling to decrease while any minor bruising experienced during treatment will subside within a few days. Clients can return to their regular routine immediately; however, they should only resume high-impact exercise once the pain and swelling have subsided.

How is this better than traditional liposuction?

As you age or gain weight, your skin becomes less elastic. Liposuction can compound the problem by leaving the treatment area looking lumpy or irregular. Patients with skin laxity and/or stretch marks along with fat deposits can have better results using BodyTite to firm their body and decrease the risk of post-liposuction skin laxity. Compared to traditional liposuction, BodyTite offers a safer, gentler, and less traumatic alternative with more uniform results and minimal post-operative discomfort and bruising.

What kind of post-procedure care is required?

BodyTite is a minimally-invasive procedure performed under local anesthesia or light sedation. After the procedure you may go home and shortly resume your routine. You will be required to wear a compression garment and can resume high-impact exercise upon the advice of your doctor.
