How does Bodytite work?

Bodytite uses RF technology in a unique way to apply heat to the skin and underlying fat that causes destruction of the fat cells and tightening of the collagen in the skin. In fact, studies show that BodyTite can tighten the skin up to 3x better than Smartlipo or Thermi.

One of the ways BodyTite is unique is in the way the temperature and is precisely controlled. The device monitors both the internal and external temperatures of the skin and fat to ensure the proper temperature for fat melting and skin tightening is achieved. Video animation of BodyTite

How is the BodyTite procedure done?

On the day of the procedure the skin is cleansed and the skin and underlying fat are numbed similar to liposuction or smartlipo. The BodyTite device is then used to melt melt the fat and tighten the skin. A small canula may then be used to suction away the melted fat. No stitches are needed. The patient is asked to wear a compression garment for the first few days to a few weeks after the procedure.

  • We want you to rest at home for the first few days, getting up regularly to move about.
  • There may be some drainage for the 24-48 hours so you’ll need to change dressings a couple of times a day.
  • Wear your garment 24/7 except for showering and dressing changes for the first 1-2 weeks and during waking hours after that for another few weeks
  • You should be able to resume basic activities in a few days, but avoid strenuous activities for at least a couple of weeks.
