What is BodyTite?
BodyTite is a breakthrough non-surgical and minimally invasive body reshaping procedure designed to reduce stubborn fat while simultaneously re-contouring and firming your body. BodyTite uses an advanced technology called RFAL™ (Radio Frequency Assisted LipoTightening) to firm the tissue, tighten the skin, and stimulate collagen production. Offering you a safe, gentle and sophisticated body contouring solution with essentially no scarring and no stitches required. Liposuction is usually performed in conjunction with BodyTite skin tightening.
What areas does BodyTite treat? How quickly will I see results?
This market-leading body-contouring technology can be used on many areas of the body and can help improve skin laxity after weight loss or due to aging. While almost any area of the body can be treated, BodyTite is most commonly used to remove fat and tighten tissues in the abdomen, flanks (waist), love-handles, thighs, back, arms knees, pectorals (male breasts), buttocks, and pubic mound. Results can be seen immediately, with best results noticeable after six months, and continuing up to 12 months.
What is the recovery time?
Patients return home shortly following a BodyTite treatment and routine activities can be resumed within a few days. This will vary depending on the number of areas treated. Dr. Bonnor will review this with you at the time of your consultation.
Is this covered by insurance?
This is an elective, cash-pay treatment. We do offer financing options with third party companies. If this is of interest to you, please speak with one of our Texas Surgical Arts staff members and we would be happy to give you more information. All of our fees include the surgeon, hospital, anesthesia, and follow up care. No hidden fees in our quotes.
Who is a good candidate for BodyTite?
The ideal candidate for BodyTite is someone with moderate skin laxity and some fat that they would like reduced. Someone with thin skin and severe skin laxity would probably be better served with a more invasive surgical procedure such as a tummy tuck. Dr. Bonnor is a Board Certified Surgeon and he will let you know what would work best for you.
Do I have to be asleep for the procedure or can it be done awake?
The procedure can be performed awake or under anesthesia depending on the patient’s preference or if other procedures are being performed at the same time. If the area(s) being treated are large, you may be more comfortable being asleep.
