Whole body skin tightening alternative to tummy tuck and other surgery in Nashville & Memphis

Minimally-invasive Body Contouring Treatment

BodyTite is a minimally-invasive body contouring treatment that achieves results previously only seen with surgical procedures like tummy tucks, thigh lifts, and arm lifts. It uses radio frequency assisted lipolysis (RFAL) to apply controlled heat to underlying tissue and tighten the skin. BodyTite is ideal for patients with moderately saggy skin who want to avoid the scars and longer recovery of surgery.

BodyTite is available as an add-on to liposuction available at our fully-equipped cosmetic surgery centers in Nashville and Memphis. It is performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon with over 20 years of experience in body contouring and cosmetic surgery.

Each patient is unique. What your treatment will look like is determined by you and the plastic surgeon who you will meet with in a personal consultation.

Frequently Asked Questions

If you can imagine it, you can do it: stomach, arms, chest, knees and inner/outer thighs are some of the most common treatment zones. Multiple areas can be treated in one visit. Aside from the face, where you’d opt for FaceTite, you can have BodyTite on any problem area with saggy skin.

Results can be seen immediately after your BodyTite procedure, with best results noticeable after 6 weeks, and continuing improvement up to 12 months.

It depends on how your surgeon has customized the procedure. We have found that BodyTite is best paired with our Aqualipo procedure to loosen and remove fat cells before using BodyTite to tighten the skin. You can have multiple areas treated. BodyTite itself takes approximately 15 minutes per treated zone, but if you add in liposuction, your procedure will last approximately 2 hours.

As with other minimally-invasive procedures, your recovery after BodyTite will take about 1-2 days. Patients can typically resume regular activities the next day as tolerated and are advised to wait a week before resuming strenuous exercise.

Studies have shown that BodyTite can achieve 35% – 45% skin contraction. A surgical removal of excess skin, like a tummy tuck, will always be more effective in eliminating all of the unwanted fat and skin, with immediate results. However, many patients like you hesitate to undergo surgery with its longer recovery and scars. BodyTite is an excellent non-surgical alternative to tummy tucks, arm lifts, and thigh lifts. It is ideal for patients who won’t see enough results with liposuction, but don’t want surgery. You will still see a big immediate difference and your results will continue to improve for up to 12 months.

It is a form of liposuction, with the official name of Radio-Frequency Assisted Lipolysis, or RAFL for short. However, it uses neither physical force nor water liposuction to break up and remove fat. It uses heat energy to damage fatty tissue in underlying cells, and thereby contracts the skin. It is most effective when used in conjunction with the aforementioned more traditional liposuction methods for maximum fat removal and skin tightening.

As plastic surgeons, we like the tummy tuck. It’s a great surgical procedure to remove excess skin and restore your youthful figure, especially after severe weight loss. But what if you don’t want surgery? Is there a way to a flatter tummy without surgery? The answer is yes.
