BodyTite

BodyTite is a minimally-invasive, nonsurgical treatment for men and women with unwanted fat deposits and lax skin in the chin, neck, abdomen, hips, knees, and thighs. It is particularly useful in attacking persistent “trouble spots” (like saddlebags or love handles) that have not responded to diet and exercise.

Loeb is pleased to offer a full suite of procedures, including BodyTite, that beautifully shape and contour the body to get an enhanced look without excessive downtime.

What is BodyTite?

BodyTite is one of the most advanced new treatments to sculpt the body without the need for invasive surgery. During the procedure, a silicone-coated, hollow Mercedes-tip suction cannula/electrode goes into the body through a small incision. The electrode delivers radiofrequency internally to break up precisely targeted fat cells, while the cannula gently suctions the liquefied and coagulated fat. Meanwhile, an external circular electrode slides along the surface of the skin to measure skin temperature and heat the dermis uniformly, thus aiding in collagen remodeling and preventing burns.

Is BodyTite liposuction?

BodyTite is a liposuction system much like SmartLipo, LipoSelection, and others. BodyTite liposuction uses radiofrequency waves to liquefy excess fat cells prior to removal. Compared to traditional liposuction techniques, there are fewer risks of lumps, bumps and other surface irregularities. Better results are obtained with RFAL due to the significant contraction of the skin and soft tissue that occurs – greater than 35%, compared to less than 8% for standard liposuction.

BodyTite reviews

Well-known celebrities like boxer Manny Pacquiao’s wife Jinkee and Filippino beauty queen Ruffa Guitierrez have both admitted to undergoing BodyTite procedures to bounce back after having their children. Patients have almost uniformly expressed enthusiasm about the results in online reviews.

BodyTite patients have said:

  • “My clothes fit better now.”
  • “I have a flat stomach and no muffin top.”
  • “I went back to work after 4 days, feeling fine.”
  • “It’s given me huge confidence in my body again.”
  • “I can wear the clothes I used to have 20 years ago.”
  • “The treatment got rid of all my loose skin [after losing nearly 100 pounds].”
  • “I am getting married this year in a sleeveless dress, which is something I never would have done.”

BodyTite before and after

During the early stages of healing, bruising, swelling and pain should decrease daily. It is common to feel some nodules near the treatment area. This is fat necrosis that typically resolves on its own with massage, warm compresses, and use of the provided compression garment. While individuals heal at different rates, the final results are generally evident in four to six months.

The best way to gauge whether a particular procedure is right for you is to look at before and after images of what BodyTite has done for others who share your physique. Individual patient results may vary, but here is a sample of what BodyTite technology has yielded for actual patients of Dr. Thomas Loeb MD in New York City: BodyTite before and after photos.

BodyTite cost

The cost of BodyTite ranges based on the amount of fat and number of areas to be treated. As with any liposuction procedure, BodyTite prices are based on:

  • Geographic location
  • Surgeon experience
  • Operating room fees
  • Lab tests ordered
  • Local anesthesia administered
  • Post-operative supplies

Discounts may be offered when you are looking at treating multiple zones and most surgeons offer in-house no-interest financing.
