Has your skin lost its former firmness? Or maybe you are struggling with the problem of cellulite? If your answer is YES, it’s time to get to know the modern BodyTite treatment – liposuction with radio waves, which will firm your skin in a gentle, fast, and safe way. Everyone wants to enjoy a slim figure. Diet and exercise that are the cornerstones of a lean body are sometimes not enough. BodyTite approach is the solution to this problem.
Not only will it remove excess fat, but it will also remodel and shrink the subcutaneous tissue and skin. Effectively, without additional treatments, it has the ability to solve the problem of excess body fat.
What is BodyTite?
BodyTite is a device from the American company InMode, designed for people who dream of a slim and firm body. It is primarily intended for those who have normal weight and struggle with localized fatty tissue or are slightly overweight. It is used to perform minimally invasive liposuction on the basis of radiofrequency.
The BodyTite device is based on the use of RFAL technology (liposuction and firming with radio waves). It consists of inserting a special suction cannula under the skin in an invisible place and applying a headpiece that emits radio waves (RF) to the body surface. As a result, the tissues are heated, and the fat under the skin is melted and then suctioned with a cannula.
Thanks to the use of precise control, liposuction with the help of radiofrequency can be carried out on various areas of the body, including the abdomen, buttocks, or thighs, as well as at a precisely selected depth of radio waves. Properly chosen parameters ensure one hundred percent safety. An additional advantage is the stimulation of tissues for natural regeneration, which improves the overall condition of the skin and leads to its visible firming.
Thanks to a BodyTite device, the procedure is effective and minimally invasive for the patient. It can be performed under local or general anesthesia, depending on the amount of fat intended for removal. BodyTite is especially meant for those who want to quickly return to a normal lifestyle, enjoying a beautiful body without a prolonged recovery.
Why is RFAL (Body Tite) liposuction better?
During the procedure, the subcutaneous tissue is heated, which makes it firmer. In most cases, there is no need to perform a second surgery to excise excess skin. Blood vessels are coagulated during the procedure, and there is no significant loss of blood along with the aspirated fat. RFAL liposuction provides a low-traumatic treatment, without scars, with a uniform effect throughout the treatment area.
How long does the procedure take?
The procedure takes approximately two hours; the total length depends on the area on which the treatment is performed. Body Tite is a one-time treatment – the fat is extracted only once unless the doctor decides otherwise.
The effects of the treatment
Although the final effect is noticeable after a few weeks or even months following the procedure, you will be able to see some immediate results right away. The technique activates collagen production, which gradually enhances the body contouring in the process, which may last up to a year. The treatment leaves no bruises and scars on the skin; the recovery is very short. Most people feel entirely well two days after the surgery and return to their daily activities. Body Tite leaves the skin firm, glowing, and smooth, while the whole body looks slimmer.
As with other methods of body enhancement, such as traditional liposuction, the critical contributor to the longevity of the effect is your lifestyle following the procedure. Key factors include a proper and healthy diet as well as regular exercise.
Recommendations after the procedure
Within 24 hours after the procedure, the patient may feel slight discomfort and pain; painkillers will make the process more manageable. It is recommended to rest for a few days after the procedure – during this time, you should give up physical activity. Follow all post-operative care instructions provided by your doctor and make sure to follow up with any concerns.
Contraindications to the procedure include pregnancy and breastfeeding, diabetes, epilepsy, autoimmune diseases, temporary and chronic skin inflammation. In addition, the treatment is not available to those people with diagnosed circulatory failure and heart disease. The procedure also excludes the simultaneous use of antibiotics, the presence of herpes, and other bacterial/viral infections. If the patient is taking any medications, they should inform the doctor in advance – the use of some active substances may prohibit the possibility of liposuction.
Is BodyTite safe?
The FDA has approved BodyTite for the treatment focusing on the stomach, arms, thighs, chest, and knees. Although the device implements thermal energy, the highly sophisticated built-in technology minimizes the risk of burns through the monitoring of the temperature and the ability to regulate it accordingly. Because the treatment is extremely well tolerated by patients and has an expeditious recovery period, it is considered one of the safest methods of body contouring.
BodyTite versus Traditional Liposuction
It is important to clarify the difference between traditional liposuction and BodyTite treatment. The main concept is that BodyTite is not liposuction, although it is often referred to as one. However, you may combine the two treatments for the best final result. Depending on your needs and realistic expectations, you may benefit from extracting fat using liposuction and preventing the potential side effect of loose skin by undergoing the BodyTite procedure. Your doctor will help you assess your unique body composition and evaluate the elasticity levels of your skin to ensure the ultimate result was worth the hassle.
Compared to traditional liposuction, BodyTite treatment poses a much lower risk of trauma, including swelling, bruising, or scarring. Also, the recovery period is significantly reduced, allowing you to regain control of your life quickly and effortlessly.
You may be advised to wear a special compression garment following the procedure. Compression garments help your newly shaped body to contract to its new contours, preventing your skin from forming wrinkles as a result.

Does BodyTite create noticeable scars?
Since BodyTite is a minimally invasive procedure, it will not leave any scarring and no stitches necessary. As your body heals, the dead fat cells will leave the patient with a slimmer and more sculpted body with no scarring and minimal risks.
