BodyTite is usually done with local anesthesia; however, general anesthesia may be used if you are nervous or having several areas treated. The special BodyTite applicator is inserted through very small incisions in your skin. The applicator has an internal and external thermometer will protect you from burns. The applicator will liquefy and loosen the fat with radiofrequency waves so that the fat can be easily suctioned from your body. The heat used throughout the fat removal will tighten your connective tissue and skin for visible skin contraction. BodyTite treatments generally take about 30 – 45 minutes per area treated. Several sessions may be required or suggested by Dr. Weston to deliver your best results.

Some results can be seen instantly; however, your final results will not be apparent for 3 – 6 months when the swelling and inflammation subside. While the fat that is removed can't grow back, the remaining fat can become larger if you gain weight, so it's crucial to maintain a healthy, stable weight after your BodyTite procedure.

Frequently Asked Questions
How much does BodyTite cost?
The cost of your BodyTite procedure will depend on the number of areas being addressed. During your initial consultation, your doctor can go over all your needs and concerns to determine your custom treatment plan. Once your treatment is developed, he/she can go over all your estimated costs.
BodyTite is ideal for men and women who wish to avoid lengthy recovery times, large surgical scars, and high costs of cosmetic surgery. Although BodyTite produces stunning results, traditional lift procedures such as tummy tucks, arm lifts, and thigh lifts are the most effective method for addressing loose or excess skin. In addition, liposuction is the most sufficient way to rid unsightly pockets of fat. During your assessment, your doctor can discuss the benefits of both and which one is best for you.
What is radiofrequency?
Radiofrequency (RF) is advanced energy that uses electrical currents to create controlled heat. This heat is then used to target and eliminate fat cells without disrupting the surrounding healthy tissue. It also helps promote collagen and elastin for tighter, healthier skin.
Is it safe?
Yes, as an FDA-approved treatment, BodyTite is a safe cosmetic procedure and is popular with both women and men. The procedure itself is very gentle and most patients are able to return to light activities soon after treatment. More strenuous activities can be resumed in 5 – 10 days but this can vary.
