Can BodyTite® Really Remove Fat Without Surgery? 

March 31, 2020

3 Minute Read:

Losing weight and working towards your body goals is a long-term commitment. While many people are able to overcome all obstacles to reach their body goals, some may reach a threshold where sheer willpower is not enough. 

Stubborn fat can turn up in several places, and virtually everyone is prone to having at least one problem area. These trouble spots are the pockets of fat that will not budge no matter how much you diet or exercise. 

If you want to get rid of this fat, but you are not comfortable with the idea of surgery or its resulting downtime, BodyTite® may be appropriate. 

What Is BodyTite®? 

BodyTite® uses radiofrequency technology to tighten the connective tissue network under the skin and liquify fat for easier removal with liposuction.

The BodyTite® procedure inserts a thin probe under the skin through a tiny incision. This internal device, when combined with an external electrode, produces an electrical circuit which creates heat in the treated area. With this technology, we are able to continually monitor the internal temperature to maximize efficacy and safety. These radiofrequency waves melt the fat under the skin, thus making it easier to remove through a cannula. 

BodyTite® can be used on one or more of the following areas: 

  • Abdomen 
  • Hips 
  • Buttocks 
  • Inner thighs 
  • Upper arms
  • Knees 
  • Back 
  • Outer thighs
  • Neck
  • Back

Following the procedure, most patients can return to regular activities within one to two weeks. Results will start to become visible immediately but will continue to develop over the next few months. 

The most developed results will be visible after six months to a year with a maintained diet and exercise. 

How Is BodyTite® Different From Other Body Contouring Procedures?

Traditional liposuction is commonly used to remove stubborn fatty deposits on the body. Although it accomplishes a similar feat, BodyTite® does not require the same invasive techniques required with liposuction. And while liposuction does remove excess fat, it does not have the added benefit of enhancing contours by tightening loose or stretched skin. Since BodyTite® is less invasive—because it liquefies the fat first, it often results in less bleeding, which speeds up your healing process.

CoolSculpting® is a non-surgical fat reduction procedure. CoolSculpting® works by freezing fat rather than removing it directly. BodyTite® is considered minimally invasive rather than non-surgical because it requires small incisions to remove the fat.

Can BodyTite® Be Combined With Other Procedures? 

BodyTite® can be combined with liposuction to remove unwanted fat further. This combination is effective for making fat removal easier and promoting the tightening and healing of the skin. Since liposuction does not remove or tighten loose skin, this combination allows for patients to achieve ideal results without a skin excision procedure. 

BodyTite® is also praised for its ability to reduce the appearance of cellulite as the skin is smoothed and tightened. This can reduce the need for any follow-up surgeries that may be required to achieve the desired contours.

Could not say enough great things about Dr. Raniere and his staff at Advanced Aesthetics! They are wonderful in every way and provide exceptional care. I am very pleased with my results of my surgery, as is several of my family members that he has also treated. The whole process from the first consult to the last post-op visit was so painless. Highly recommend Dr. Raniere and his practice for all your plastic surgery needs!

When searching for a surgeon, I took YEARS to make up my mind. After meeting with several other doctors, I met with Dr. Raniere.... I knew right away, he was it! He’s a true artist who’s a total perfectionist! He listens very well and is very knowledgeable and most of all PASSIONATE about what he does. His staff is just out right phenomenal! You feel as if your going through the whole process with you best friends! Mrs. Cheryl is perfect is guiding you through everything before, during and after your procedure. I would highly recommend planning your surgery with this team of artist!
