About BodyTite

Most people have both loose skin and areas of excess fat on their body that they would really like to correct without an invasive body lift and surgical liposuction. BodyTite is a revolutionary, minimally invasive liposuction treatment that also tightens your skin with very little recovery time. The radiofrequency-assisted liposuction (RFAL) in BodyTite allows board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Daniel Del Vecchio to efficiently help men and women improve their body contours. BodyTite is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to safely remove fat and tighten skin without scars for fast results. Schedule a consultation at Uptown Body Contouring in New York, NY to learn more about BodyTite along with other treatment options for sagging skin and fat removal.

Ideal Candidates

BodyTite can help if you want to see better contours and skin tightness in one or many areas of your body. You may be a candidate for BodyTite if you want to eliminate pockets of fat and improve the overall look of sagging, wrinkled skin. You may have considered traditional liposuction or body lift surgery but would prefer to avoid surgical downtime and scarring. Most areas of the body can be treated with BodyTite, but some of the common areas patients would like help with are the stomach, chest, arms, knees, and thighs. At your consultation, Dr. Del Vecchio will listen to your concerns and goals before helping you decide if BodyTite or another procedure is right for you.

Surgical Technique

BodyTite is usually performed with local anesthesia, but general anesthesia may be used if you are nervous or having several areas treated. The advanced BodyTite applicator is inserted through very small incisions in your skin. BodyTite has an internal and external thermometer that will protect you from burns. The applicator will loosen and liquefy the fat with radiofrequency waves so the fat can be easily suctioned out of your body. The heat used during the fat removal will tighten your skin and connective tissue for visible skin contraction. BodyTite treatments generally take about 30 – 45 minutes per area treated. Multiple sessions may be needed or recommended by Dr. Del Vecchio to deliver your best results.

What to Expect

You will need to rest at home for 5 – 10 days after your BodyTite treatment. A compression garment should be worn over the treated areas to promote healing while maintaining your new shape. Some results can be seen immediately, but final results will not be apparent for 3 – 6 months as the swelling and inflammation subside. While the fat that is removed cannot return, the remaining fat can become larger if you gain weight so it is crucial to maintain a healthy, stable weight after your BodyTite treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does BodyTite cost?
The cost of your BodyTite procedure will rely on the number of areas being treated. During your private consultation, Dr. Del Vecchio will discuss all your needs and cosmetic concerns to develop a custom treatment plan. From there, he can review your estimated costs and all your payment options.

Surgical options?
BodyTite is excellent for men and women who wish to avoid long recovery periods, unsightly surgical scars, and the steep costs of surgery. Although BodyTite produces gorgeous outcomes, conventional lift procedures, such as tummy tucks, arm lifts, and thigh lifts, are the most effective method for removing loose skin. In addition, liposuction is the most sufficient way to rid stubborn pockets of fat. When you visit our office, Dr. Del Vecchio can discuss the pros and cons of both procedures and which one is best for you.

What is radiofrequency?
Radiofrequency (RF) is a cutting-edge technology that uses electrical currents to create controlled heat. This energy is then used to destroy fat cells without disrupting the surrounding tissue. It even helps boost collagen and elastin production for taut, healthy skin.
