What Is BodyTite?
BodyTite is a breakthrough, non-surgical, minimally invasive body reshaping procedure designed to reduce stubborn fat while 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. Dr. Bonnor offers 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.
Liposuction at Texas Surgical Arts
Stubborn fat is unwelcome and unsightly. Diet and exercise are often powerless in diminishing fat deposits in places such as the thighs, upper arms, and back. Dr. Bonnor can target unwanted fat cells with his strategic, skillful liposuction technique.
First, a tumescent fluid bathes the area(s) you want to be slimmed. Tumescent liquid contains lidocaine to comfortably numb the affected region. The fluid also constricts blood vessels to minimize bruising and swelling. Once the tumescent solution takes effect, unwanted fat cells are loosened from their mooring, making them easier to extract.
A thin tube called a cannula is maneuvered through the layers of unwanted fat. The cannula vacuums away the softened bulk. Dr. Bonnor is able to contour the body with his customized cannulas, delivering fantastic results. When liposuction is performed in concert with BodyTite, the skin is tightened to adhere to its slim new contours.
In addition to the obvious physical benefits delivered by BodyTite treatment, recipients also enjoy psychological rewards. Patients shed their insecurities along with excess fat and loose skin.
BodyTite provides confidence with every radio wave and liposuction removes unwanted fat cells for good.
Looking good and feeling great may lead to a bonus benefit: a renewed commitment to fitness. Once BodyTite with liposuction contours and tightens your physique, you are inspired to maintain your results through a healthy diet and exercise. Even though the fat cells removed via liposuction will not come back, the other fat cells in your body can swell as a result of weight gain. Ask Dr. Bonnor how to maximize your BodyTite benefits during your comprehensive consultation.
BodyTite is a market-leading body-contouring technology. It 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 following:
- Flanks (waist)
- Pectorals (male breasts)
- Pubic mound
To contour any of these areas through strategic liposuction and skin tightening, call (281) 579-5638.

He wants to hear about your medical history and future aesthetic goals. Dr. Bonnor can determine if BodyTite with liposuction is the right approach for you. If so, he will provide you with “next steps” to prepare you for the BodyTite procedure. If an alternate strategy may work better, Dr. Bonnor will walk you through his thought process. Please call (281) 579-5638 to set up an appointment at Texas Surgical Arts.
The BodyTite Procedure
During your consultation, Dr. Bonnor and his associates will provide you with detailed instructions to prepare you for the BodyTite procedure. It is important to follow your customized directions, which may include the cessation of smoking and/or taking blood-thinning medications.
Once you arrive at Texas Surgical Arts, we want you to feel right at home. You will review your procedural details one last time with Dr. Bonnor before you receive the appropriate sedation.
The BodyTite 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 extensive, you may be more comfortable being asleep.
BodyTite technology is designed to monitor the amount of heat being administered to the target area. These monitors ensure that the skin remains unharmed, even as the radio waves emulsion deep layers of fat. In response, the body produces collagen that helps the skin-tightening process. The result is a smooth, taut appearance contoured to the patient’s exact specifications.
Patients return home shortly after a BodyTite treatment. Routine activities can be resumed within a few days. Recuperation times will vary depending on the number of areas treated. Dr. Bonnor will review your recovery protocols with you at the time of your consultation.
In general, be sure to avoid unnecessary stress and strain during your recovery period. Rest is essential, so give your body a break. Light walks may be advisable to promote optimal circulation. Also: by strolling through the neighborhood, you can show off your slim new look.
After BodyTite Treatment
The rewards of BodyTite with liposuction emerge in several waves. Some results can be seen immediately, but minor swelling may persist for a few weeks. Once the swelling subsides, the best results become noticeable after six months. As a patient’s body adapts to its new contours, improvements will continue to progress for up to 12 months.
Can’t wait that long? We don’t blame you. Get a preview of the new you by checking out our rave reviews. Dr. Bonnor has earned the trust and admiration of scores of past patients, and we are grateful for their kind words. Texas Surgical Arts is committed to providing 5-star service to Houston, Galveston, Katy, and our surrounding communities.
Complementary and Alternative Procedures
BodyTite is a revolutionary way to tighten skin from within. The focused radio waves cinch lax skin and provide great results for those with mild to moderate ptosis (sagging). If excess skin is more pronounced, however, it may need to be surgically removed.
To benefit from a lift, lipo, or any of the other rejuvenating processes available at Texas Surgical Arts, contact our Houston office soon.
An arm lift contours the upper body to showcase strong, sleek biceps. A thigh lift can contour the upper legs to bring the lower body into holistic harmony. If you receive liposuction with any of the above procedures (arm lift, thigh lift or BodyTite), Dr. Bonnor can put your extracted fat to great use. After purifying your lipids, he can reinsert them into the buttocks to create firm, round dimensions. This is called a Brazilian butt lift, and it is all the rage from Rio to the Rio Grande.
