Who is a Good Candidate for BodyTite?


When even rigorous diets and exercise fail to get rid of that stubborn fat, many men and women turn to liposuction to achieve their body contouring goals. Even though conventional liposuction can remove fat effectively, it leaves behind loose skin. An innovative radiofrequency-assisted procedure, BodyTite in NYC overcomes these concerns and helps you achieve attractive, natural looking body contouring results – without surgery or incisions. This is an exciting body contouring procedure has helped thousands of patients enhance their appearance and rebuild their confidence by eradicating stubborn pockets of fat.

This patented radiofrequency assisted liposuction (RFAL) treatment reshapes and tightens different areas of the body without the visible scars and prolonged downtime associated with conventional liposuction surgery. BodyTite can treat areas such as the face, chin, neck, abdomen, breasts, chest, saddle bags, upper arms, buttocks, back, ankle, love handles, hips, inner and outer thighs and knees. Plastic surgeons in AAAASF-accredited plastic surgery practice in NYC use the FDA-approved BodyTite liposuction device to perform various scarless body contouring procedures such as Facelift, Neck Lift, Arm Lift (Brachioplasty), Breast Lift and Thigh Lift.

However, not everyone is a good candidate for the procedure. Generally, an ideal candidate for BodyTite liposuction surgery is a healthy person with troublesome areas of excess fat and skin that they would like to get corrected. The best candidates have moderate skin laxity and are within 30% of their ideal weight. The criteria that determine your candidature for BodyTite are:

  • Have fat deposits that persist even after strenuous workouts and rigorous diets
  • Are physically active and in good health
  • Are close to your ideal weight
  • Have good skin tone and realistic expectations about the outcome
  • Do not smoke

The procedure is not recommended for:

  • Women who are pregnant or breast-feeding
  • People with autoimmune diseases
  • Those with skin diseases and/or infections
  • Anyone with allergies to certain local anesthetics

In the BodyTite handpiece, RFAL energy is deployed from an internal cannula to an external electrode, resulting in the delivery of focused energy into the adipose tissue and fatty areas. The controlled, focused delivery of radiofrequency energy breaks down and liquefies the fat cells, allowing them to be removed by aspiration while leaving the surrounding tissues unaffected. The device is also designed to prevent overheating of the skin. The procedure coagulates the adipose, vascular and fibrous tissue and tightens the skin and its supporting structures. With controlled heating and real time temperature monitoring, it allows the plastic surgeon to effectively treat areas with large volume and deep fat up to 50 mm. The outcome is a smooth, attractive and natural looking physique. The use of local anesthesia lower risks and promotes faster recovery.
