Remove Excess Fat and Tighten Lax Skin with BodyTite™
BodyTite™ is a breakthrough body sculpting treatment that can remove excess fat deposits while simultaneously tightening skin for firmer-looking contours. BodyTite™ utilizes radio frequency (RF) energy to achieve long-lasting results without the need for invasive surgery. Stubborn fat pockets that are resistant to diet and exercise, as well as areas of skin laxity can be addressed in one minimally invasive procedure. BodyTite™ can achieve substantial improvements to your physique with little downtime or recovery. This revolutionary body sculpting treatment can firm the breasts, arms, midsection, and inner thighs with unparalleled precision.*

How does BodyTite™ work?
Unlike laser-based liposuction treatments, BodyTite™ uses bipolar radio frequency energy to target stubborn fat and lax skin. A small electrode is placed on the skin above the treatment area. A tiny 1-2 millimeter incision is then made beneath the skin and the BodyTite™ cannula is inserted. Dr. Levine will guide the cannula along the treatment site, directing RF energy from the electrode and cannula to the skin’s underlying layers. Energy from the BodyTite™ machine slowly liquefies fat cells and coagulates tissues to achieve the desired body sculpting effects. Additionally, RF energy heats the skin layers, resulting in significant skin tightening. By using bipolar radio frequency energy, BodyTite™ allows for greater control and precision when directing energy to the target area, producing more efficient results than past skin tightening techniques. Bipolar RF energy from the internal cannula and external electrode heats the target area from the inside out, shaping the body and tightening skin for beautifully contoured, youthful-looking results.*
What areas can be treated with BodyTite™?
BodyTite™ treatment areas include the breasts, arms, inner thighs, flanks, and abdomen. Excess fat cells can be removed from these areas and loose skin can be lifted and firmed using the BodyTite™ machine. Patients can undergo a scarless breast lift with BodyTite™, as well as a minimally invasive arm lift or thigh lift.
Who is a good candidate for BodyTite™?
BodyTite™ candidates include those who wish to firm and contour the body without the need for traditional body sculpting surgery. Patients can raise the breasts, tighten the abdomen, slim the arms, and contour the thighs with BodyTite™ treatment. BodyTite™ may be an ideal procedure for mothers post-pregnancy who are experiencing drooping skin around the breasts or midsection, as well as patients with lax skin around the arms or thighs, since skin is especially thin in these areas and difficult to firm through traditional skin tightening procedures. Dr. Levine will meet with you during your in-office consultation at our New York location to help determine if BodyTite™ is right for you.
Can BodyTite™ treatment be combined with other procedures?
Yes. BodyTite™ can be used alongside other body sculpting procedures, including breast augmentation, liposuction, fat grafting, and abdominoplasty. Patients can also combine BodyTite™ with facial rejuvenation techniques, such as FaceTite™, for comprehensive results.
What type of anesthesia will be used?
BodyTite™ is a minimally invasive body sculpting procedure and usually requires local anesthesia. For patients combining BodyTite™ with another body contouring, liposuction, or facial rejuvenation technique, other forms of anesthesia may be utilized, depending on your procedure.
What should I expect during my BodyTite™ procedure?
BodyTite™ can be performed as an outpatient procedure at our NYC plastic surgery offices. Dr. Levine will administer an anesthetic and then position the tiny BodyTite™ electrode on the surface of your skin. A small incision approximately 1-2 millimeters long will be made to insert the BodyTite™ cannula under the skin. Dr. Levine will then use the BodyTite™ machine to direct radio frequency energy to the treatment site, reducing areas of fat and simultaneously tightening the skin. Procedure length will ultimately vary from patient to patient.
What should I expect after my BodyTite™ procedure?
Slight swelling and bruising around the treatment area may be present following your BodyTite™ body sculpting treatment and should subside in the following days. Dr. Levine can prescribe medication to help relieve these symptoms, if necessary. Since BodyTite™ is minimally invasive, there is little recovery time after your treatment and you are free to return to your daily routine in the days after completing your BodyTite™ procedure.* Dr. Levine will further explain your post-procedure instructions during your in-office consultation.
What kind of results can I expect from BodyTite™?
BodyTite™ can achieve significant body sculpting results that are long-lasting. The BodyTite™ system is designed to liquefy fat and tighten skin in one procedure to lift the breasts, firm the arms, sculpt the thighs, or contour the midsection. BodyTite™ produces skin contraction, so patients can begin to see results soon after this minimally invasive body sculpting procedure.*
