BodyTite is a minimally-invasive treatment to contour your body by removing fat and tightening sagging skin. Similar to liposuction, BodyTite uses radio frequency-assisted lipolysis, or RFAL, to promote fat coagulation around the treatment area. This also helps tighten the fibrous tissue in the skin, which helps contour your look. BodyTite is powered by directional radiofrequency (RF) to apply thermal energy above and below the skin, which is how it’s able to remove fat and tighten skin simultaneously. During your consultation with the Renuance Cosmetic Surgery Center, your doctors will assess your condition, listen to your concerns, and then customize a plan that addresses your cosmetic goals.
Many people find they work hard and are dedicated to their health though their body does not reflect this consistent diet and exercise routine. They find that there are still areas of excess skin and/or stubborn fat that refuse to improve. As a result, they find their self-esteem lowering as they feel a sense of hopelessness when they look in the mirror.
BodyTite offers a way to combat these feelings of helplessness while also minimizing the time you spend on treatments. BodyTite can correct issues in several areas including the stomach, arms, thighs, bra line, male breasts, sides of your body, and knees. Best of all, there’s no need to take off time from work or recreation due to surgery. BodyTite is a quick procedure that saves you time and helps you rediscover the joy in your body by helping sculpt the contours you’ve been working for. BodyTite is the only type of contouring available that offers both skin tightening and body fat removal at the same time.
BodyTite is considered an outpatient procedure. You’ll be given a local anesthetic to numb the target area before the doctor begins. The procedure time will vary depending on the area but is usually under two hours.
The BodyTite device consists of two small RF transmitting probes connected to a handpiece. A small incision will be made, through which the doctor will insert one of the RF probes. The second RF probe is kept on top of your skin. This placement allows the doctor to move the handpiece, sending electrical currents between both probes. The RF frequencies heat the tissue in targeted areas to coagulate fat. This also stimulates collagen growth, which in turn causes the skin to contract and tighten. After this process, the doctor will use a cannula, or thin tube, to suck out the coagulated fat. Once the procedure is complete, the doctor will close the small incision. If there are multiple areas being treated, this process of numbing, incision, RF frequencies, and vacuuming, will be repeated.
After your procedure, you will likely experience bruising, numbness, and swelling. This will begin to improve in a few days, though swelling can take several weeks to completely subside. This recovery timeline is far faster than traditional liposuction, where recovery can last for more than a month.
Your results will start to become visible within two weeks as your swelling goes down. However, since your body will continue to remove fat and tighten skin due to increased collagen production, it may take up to six months to see complete results. During that time, your body contours will continue to improve; most patients experience up to 47% skin contraction within six months of the procedure.

BodyTite is recommended for someone who has been struggling with loose skin and fatty deposits despite consistent diet and exercise. Recovery times are shorter because it's minimally invasive and the RF energy produces even contouring to help you reach your cosmetic ideal.
Although there are small incisions in the target area, most patients report only soreness or tenderness after the procedure. There will also be bruising, which can produce moderate aches. You can take prescription pain medication if needed or use over-the-counter pain relievers to alleviate any discomfort.
Because BodyTite is an elective cosmetic procedure it is not covered by insurance providers.
