BodyTite™ is a sophisticated treatment system that is revolutionizing facial and body contouring by delivering surgical benefits without their associated risks and recovery. This non-invasive treatment achieves significant, long-lasting results in a single treatment utilizing radio-frequency assisted lipolysis (RFAL), which reduces fat and tightens skin and its underlying connective tissue. Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. David Dreyfuss provides this revolutionary contouring procedure to residents of the greater Chicago area.
Now, Chicago has an option other than the non-invasive treatment systems like CoolSculpting, Exilis, and Sculpsure, which produce limited results. BodyTite™ may also be an alternative to surgical procedures like a tummy tuck or an arm lift, which can leave visible scarring and involve an extended recovery. The correction necessary for many patients will be the BodyTite™ treatment which offers a minimally invasive, non-surgical, safe and effective treatment.
BodyTite™ is an optimal treatment for patients looking to remove stubborn fat and lift tissue to correct loose and hanging skin. Popular treatment sites include flanks, buttocks, bra roll, knees, back, thighs, arms, abdomen, and the neck. Dr. Dreyfuss performs BodyTite™ under a local anesthetic with or without twilight sedation. He uses a specialized device to administer RFAL. This attachment has a thin probe to insert into the selected tissues with a second probe that sits on top.
When active, the system will project energy from an internal probe to liquify excess fat and heat targeted tissue, which lies between the two probes. The device displays the tissue’s temperature inside and out allowing Dr. Dreyfuss to deliver the energy safely and efficiently. When he achieves the optimal temperature, the skin and its underlying tissue will contract. Then, the melted fat will be easily suctioned out using a liposuction cannula.
Because trauma to the skin and its underlying tissue is minimal, BodyTite™ causes less swelling, bruising and discomfort than body sculpting surgery. Downtime is typically one to two days depending on the number of sites treated and their location. We instruct you to wear a compression garment for three to four weeks after the procedure.
You will notice an instant improvement, and the treatment site will continue to improve for approximately three months. The best benefits are how well your skin will contract back to drape tightly over underlying tissues, which will have a smaller layer of fat. The tightened skin will create a firm texture and improve skin quality after only one session.
The critical component of RFAL technology is its built-in safeguards like automatic cut-off temperature levels, external and internal temperature monitoring, and the selected use of adequately trained aesthetic surgeons.
RFAL technology was FDA approved in 2016, and radiofrequency has been a part of aesthetic medicine for over twenty years. Before RFAL approval in the United States, BodyTite™ ’s manufacturer, InMode started perfecting the technology in Europe, South America, and Canada in 2011.
