BodyTite: Your Answer to Minimally Invasive Skin Tightening

BodyTite: Your Answer to Minimally Invasive Skin Tightening”

In the past, the main surgical solution for stubborn pockets of fat was Liposuction. While liposuction is a highly effective procedure for fat removal, it does not tighten skin.  So if skin laxity is a concern, one might not be fully satisfied with liposuction alone.  For certain areas of the body with significant excess skin and laxity, skin excision may be recommended and necessary for optimal results, such as with a tummy tuck or arm lift may be necessary.

But what about the person who only has mild to moderate laxity and excess fat? We have the perfect solution here in the Boston area at the Center for Plastic Surgery, where we offer a revolutionary treatment called BodyTite that can change the game. This procedure simultaneously tightens skin and reduces body fat. What's more, patients do not require anesthesia and they can start to see results in as little as a few weeks following just one session.

What is BodyTite?

BodyTite is a skin tightening and fat reduction device designed by InMode, the creator of some of today’s most popular non-invasive and minimally invasive medical aesthetic devices. InMode has been designing state-of-the-art laser and radiofrequency (RF) devices for more than two decades. BodyTite, which uses RF-assisted liposuction (RFAL) technology, is the culmination of this work.

The BodyTite procedure inserts a small probe beneath the skin through a tiny 2 mm incision in the skin. BodyTite emits RF energy to stimulate collagen production to simultaneously tighten the skin and the deeper tissue. Liposuction is then performed to remove unwanted fat in the treated area. BodyTite remodels the soft tissue and subcutaneous fat layer to tighten areas including but not limited to the abdomen, thighs, arms, and flanks for a more youthful physique in just one visit.

The BodyTite Advantage

Here at the Center for Plastic Surgery, our patients are excited about the possibilities and advantages of BodyTite. Not only does it help tighten tissue after fat removal, but patients also love that it’s performed right here in the office. You’re awake, you’re safe, and you’re comfortable throughout the entire procedure. Here’s a look at the other benefits of BodyTite for skin tightening and fat reduction.

Simultaneous Fat Removal and Skin Tightening

Traditional methods of fat removal, such as liposuction, can reduce the subcutaneous fat layer but leave the surrounding soft tissue largely untouched. So, patients who undergo liposuction treatment may be left with loose skin following the procedure. BodyTite, on the other hand, uses radiofrequency-assisted liposuction technology to remove fat and tighten skin and deeper tissue at the same time.

Minimally Invasive with Reduced Downtime

A BodyTite procedure is performed with a 2 to 3-millimeter skin opening. In other words, BodyTite is considerably less invasive and requires far less recovery time than other body contouring procedures, such as a Tummy Tuck.

Collagen Stimulation with Natural-Looking Results

The radiofrequency-assisted liposuction with BodyTite achieves two things. First, it liquifies and facilitates the removal of unwanted fat. Second, it stimulates collagen production deep beneath the dermis to tighten the deeper fibroseptal network and tone skin. Collagen is a naturally occurring substance that gives the skin its structure, helping to combat loose, sagging, or wrinkled skin that can result after sudden weight loss or aging.

Targeted Treatment for Versatile Body Areas 

While a limited recovery period for a dual-purpose, natural-looking procedure is enough to convince most patients to learn more about BodyTite, its versatility is another major selling point. BodyTite is approved for use across the body, including the abdomen, flanks, thighs, and arms. These areas are commonly associated with some skin laxity, which is why BodyTite can be desirable.

Anticipated BodyTite Results

BodyTite is proven to reduce subcutaneous fat with significantly less scarring compared to traditional body contouring surgery. However, like any body contouring procedure, it’s critical to have realistic expectations for your BodyTite results. Individual procedure outcomes may vary, as the success of BodyTite largely relies on several factors, including but not limited to:

  • Skin quality (i.e., crepey lax skin laxity vs thicker skin) 
  • Amount of excess subcutaneous fat
  • Age- which can affect a person's ability to generate new collagen
  • Skill level of the healthcare professional performing the procedure

Morpheus8 and BodyTite: The Perfect Pair

Earlier, I mentioned InMode, the creator of BodyTite and a leader in radiofrequency devices. InMode is also the creator of Morpheus8, a fractional RF microneedling device that we cannot get enough of in our office! Morpheus8 uses tiny needles to deliver RF energy into the deeper layers of the skin, stimulating collagen production, tightening the skin, and improving skin texture.

When used in combination with its sister device, BodyTite, Morpheus8 provides a comprehensive body rejuvenation. Collagen stimulation from Morpheus8 contributes to ongoing skin improvement, enhancing the longevity of the results.
