BodyTite Q & A

What is BodyTite?

BodyTite is a state-of-the-art treatment that reduces excess fat through radiofrequency-assisted lipolysis (RFAL). This innovative minimally invasive treatment can contour, lift, and tone all at the same time because it includes liposuction for fat removal as well as radiofrequency skin tightening. BodyTite produces up to 36% skin contraction, something that liposuction alone can't do.

What areas can BodyTite treat?

BodyTite can treat nearly any area with extra fat, including your abdomen, hips, thighs, arms, and back. In some cases, it's also a good treatment for gynecomastia, excess breast tissue in men. 

How does BodyTite work?

You receive a local anesthetic in the treatment area, and your Pacific Coast Center for Oral, Facial, & Cosmetic Surgery care provider places a slender cannula (tube) through a tiny incision. 

Your provider moves the cannula within the fat pocket to deliver radiofrequency energy impulses that warm and melt the fat cells. As soon as the fat cells liquefy, the cannula swiftly suctions them out of your body. BodyTite has an internal temperature control system that ensures your skin won't grow overheated or uncomfortable. 

In addition to melting the unwanted fat, radiofrequency energy also contracts your skin's natural collagen to bring on immediate tightening. BodyTite further stimulates collagen production in your dermal skin layer. Collagen tightens your skin and keeps it firm, so BodyTite works to remove fat and tighten simultaneously.

How many BodyTite treatment sessions do I need?

Most patients need just one BodyTite session to get great results. 

Is BodyTite right for me?

If you're unable to lose pockets of fat in certain areas after diet and exercise, BodyTite might be right for you. It's not a replacement for weight loss, but instead works to fine-tune your body when you're at a healthy weight. 

What is BodyTite recovery like?

You can expect some mild swelling and bruising around the treatment area. Most patients resume their regular routine in only two or three days.
