About BodyTite

Most people have areas of excess fat on their body that they would like to correct without an invasive procedure. BodyTite is a revolutionary, minimally invasive liposuction treatment that also tightens your skin with very little recovery time. The radiofrequency-assisted liposuction (RFAL) in BodyTite allows plastic surgeon Dr. Cynthia Mizgala to efficiently help her patients in Metairie, LA improve their body contours. BodyTite is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to safely remove fat and tighten skin with minimal scars for quick results. Schedule a consultation at A Woman Plastic Surgeon to learn more about BodyTite, as well as other treatment options for fat removal and skin tightening.

Ideal Candidates

BodyTite can help if you want to see better contours and skin tightness in one or multiple areas of your body. You may be a candidate for BodyTite if you want to eliminate pockets of fat and improve the look of sagging skin. You may have considered traditional liposuction or body lift surgery but would prefer to avoid surgical downtime and scarring. Most areas of the body can be treated with BodyTite, but some of the common areas patients need help with are the arms, stomach, chest, knees, and thighs. In your consultation, Dr. Mizgala will listen to your concerns before helping you decide if BodyTite or another procedure is right for you.

Surgical Technique

BodyTite is usually performed with local anesthesia, but general anesthesia may be used if you are nervous or having several areas treated. The specially designed BodyTite applicator is inserted through small incisions in your skin. BodyTite has an internal and external thermometer that will treat each area while transmitting energy to tighten the skin. The applicator will loosen and liquefy the fat with radiofrequency waves so the fat can be easily suctioned out of your body. The heat used during the fat removal will tighten your skin and connective tissue for instant skin contraction. BodyTite treatments normally take about 30 – 45 minutes per area treated. Multiple sessions may be needed or recommended by Dr. Mizgala to deliver your best results.

What to Expect

The good news is that there is no downtime. The more active you are after the procedure, the quicker the recovery. A compression garment should be worn over the treated areas to promote healing while maintaining your new shape. Some results will be seen immediately, and final results will continue to improve for 3 – 6 months. 

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does BodyTite cost?
The cost of your BodyTite procedure varies greatly, depending on the area of the body that is being addressed and how large the coverage area is. The price for BodyTite will range between $4,000 – $8,000. BodyTite continues to grow in popularity among our NOLA patients because of its effective results and minimally invasive technique. Once your treatment plan is discussed, she will give you exact prices on all the treatment plans you may consider. 

Surgical options?
BodyTite is ideal for men and women who wish to avoid lengthy surgery. Although BodyTite produces stunning results, traditional lift procedures, such as tummy tucks, arm lifts, and thigh lifts, may be better options for some patients with excessive loose skin. During your assessment, Dr. Mizgala can discuss the benefits of BodyTite versus more extensive surgical options, depending on your areas of concern. 

What is radiofrequency?
Radiofrequency (RF) is an advanced energy that uses electrical currents to create controlled heat. This heat targets fat cells without disrupting the surrounding healthy tissue. It also helps shrink-wrap the fibroseptal network under the skin to tone the areas treated.

Is it safe?
Yes, as an FDA-approved treatment, BodyTite is a safe cosmetic procedure and is popular with both women and men. The procedure itself is very gentle and most patients are able to return to light activities soon after treatment. More strenuous activities can be resumed in 5 – 10 days, but this can vary.
