What is BodyTite?

BodyTite is a minimally invasive system for body contouring that can deliver results previously only achieved through excisional procedures (skin removal, which entails significant scarring). Now, no long scars are required in order to see an improvement in loose or hanging skin. BodyTite harnesses the power of radiofrequency to tighten loose tissues and skin. It is powered by directional bipolar radiofrequency energy that results in three-dimensional tissue remodeling by heating collagen and through fat coagulation. The coagulation of fat using RF-induced heat results in radiofrequency assisted lipolysis (RFAL) – killing fat at the same time as it tightens the fibers in between and around the fat cells.

BodyTite differentiates itself from other RF devices because the radiofrequency is delivered directionally through the skin from the inside out instead of just over the skin. This means that heat energy transfer across the skin is precisely controlled, allowing for measurable improvements in skin tightness as collagen shrinks when heated. The BodyTite system also offers unparalleled safety by continuously monitoring both internal and external tissue temperatures to prevent burns. Like liposuction, it requires small incisions, so it is considered a surgical procedure. However, BodyTite is minimally invasive and does not involve more incisions than regular liposuction. Furthermore, based on our experience with hundreds of BodyTite procedures, it does not significantly add to postoperative downtime. BodyTite is most commonly recommended on any area that would be prone to sagging following fat removal. These areas include the abdomen, arms, and thighs

For smaller area such as the neck, jowls, inner knees, or fat in front of the underarms, a more miniaturized system in the form of FaceTite or AccuTite will be used.

How does it work?

A thin probe beneath the skin is coupled with a head that passes above the skin to apply bipolar, directional energy through the fibers that give your tissues structure and shape. This RF energy causes these connective tissues to shrink and contract. This procedure is most often coupled with liposuction for several reasons. When accompanied by liposuction, the BodyTite handpiece can use the same small incisions, numbing, and anesthesia as the liposuction procedure. When fat has been emptied out from underneath the skin, those tissues now have less underlying support where the fat used to be causing them to sag.

By causing contraction and tightening of the underlying fibroseptal network of connective tissue, the BodyTite and FaceTite systems help to combat skin sagging after these procedures. Additionally, the RFAL technology kills fat cells as it interacts with them, and liposuction will suck out those dead fat cells, helping your body to clear them out of your system so you can see results faster. Even when coupled, these procedures have very minimal downtime, can be performed with no anesthesia or light sedation, and patients can be back at work 3-4 days later. After the RFAL treatments, patients are instructed to wear a discreet compression garment under their clothes for around 6 weeks, in order to achieve maximal results.
