Address mild to moderate skin laxity on the body with this minimally-invasive procedure that can tighten, firm up, contour, and define key areas for a more youthful and sculpted look.
BodyTite is a semi-invasive body tightening and contouring procedure that uses radiofrequency technology sub-dermally (below the surface of the skin) in order to tighten loose or sagging skin, remove small pockets of unwanted or stubborn fat, and firm up underlying tissue in order to provide overall contour and definition to a number of areas of the body. BodyTite has the extra-added advantage that it also stimulates collagen production in the body, allowing your body to maintain the results of the treatment for many years.
BodyTite effectively treats areas such as the abdomen, arms, inner and outer thighs, breasts, and knees.
For more dramatic results and more targeted fat reduction, as well as extra added contour and definition, BodyTite is also sometimes combined with radiofrequency-assisted liposuction (RFAL).
BodyTite can be performed under local anesthesia but is generally more comfortable under general anesthesia (especially when combined with liposuction) or light sedation. We can discuss these options with you when you come in for your complimentary consultation with one of our doctors.
Depending on whether you are having more than one area treated and whether you are planning to combine BodyTite with liposuction, the procedure can take anywhere from 1-3 hours.
During the procedure your doctor will make a small incision where the BodyTite probe will be inserted under the surface of the skin. Another device will glide over the targeted area at the same time. The two devices will radiate radiofrequency heat contracting collagen fibres, eliminating fat, as well as stimulating the wound healing response in order for your body to produce new collagen.
There is some downtime following BodyTite, and this can vary depending on whether your procedure was combined with liposuction or not. After the procedure you can expect some bruising, swelling, redness, and in some cases the treated area may also feel numb. You’ll also need to avoid strenuous exercise for about 4-6 weeks following your procedure, but you can engage in gentler forms of exercise after about one or two weeks. Your doctor will provide you with the appropriate post-procedural guidelines for your case in order to ensure speedy healing and the best result.
If you are combining BodyTite with liposuction you will be able to see the results of your procedure immediately after surgery, in terms of fat reduction. Body tightening results will be visible anywhere from 3-6 months following your procedure and will continue to improve for up to a year after your procedure, as your tissue contracts and new collagen builds up. We typically see 70% reduction in tissue and improvement in the tightness and firmness of the skin.
The best candidate for BodyTite is anyone who has mild to moderate skin laxity on the body that they want to address in a less invasive way than surgically. Ideally candidates are more or less at their goal weight and may also have some pockets of stubborn fat that they’d like to eliminate.
The cost of BodyTite is dependent on the area being treated and on your individual needs. We will provide you with a firm quote at your complimentary consultation with us.

BodyTite results have been proven to last for years, and in some cases may be permanent. As long as you maintain your weight following treatment with a healthy diet and exercise, you can expect long-lasting results.
