BodyTite™ is a groundbreaking body sculpting treatment that combines minimally invasive liposuction and skin tightening technology to shape the breasts, arms, abdomen, and inner thighs. BodyTite™ liposuction addresses two common cosmetic concerns in one innovative procedure by removing unwanted fat pockets and tightening loose skin. Stubborn fat can take away from a firm, sculpted physique and is often difficult to address through diet and exercise. BodyTite™ uses radio frequency (RF) energy to liquefy fat cells and remove them from the body. Additionally, patients with lax skin may be bothered by unsightly drooping or hanging around the body. BodyTite™ targets the initial skin layer, as well as your body’s underlying tissues to achieve significant skin contraction. This process can also stimulate the production of new collagen to reinforce skin structure for long-lasting results. Together, the body sculpting and skin tightening abilities of BodyTite™ result in beautiful, youthful-looking contours.

BodyTite™ delivers bipolar radio frequency energy to the targeted area(s) to achieve skin tightening and fat reduction. First, the BodyTite™ electrode is placed on the surface of your skin and a small 1-2 millimeter incision is made. A tiny cannula is then introduced underneath the skin. Once in position, the electrode and cannula work together to direct RF energy to underlying fat cells and subsurface tissues. Excess fat is liquefied and removed from the body, while energy from the BodyTite™ machine tightens fibrous tissues and encourages the production of new collagen.
Yes. BodyTite™ can be used alongside other liposuction techniques, such as tumescent lipo, super wet liposuction, and power assisted lipo, as well as body sculpting and facial rejuvenation procedures. Dr. Levine will discuss which procedures can enhance your BodyTite™ results and best fit your needs during a consultation at our New York location.
Patients who would like to improve body contours and enhance the breasts, arms, thighs, or midsection may be ideal candidates for BodyTite™ treatment. BodyTite™ can address unwanted fat pockets around these areas, as well as lax skin, to achieve smoother-looking results. BodyTite™ is designed to remove small amounts of fat from the body and should not be viewed as a weight loss method. Patients should be close to their ideal body weight in order to ensure optimal results. Dr. Levine can help advise whether BodyTite™ is right for you, depending on your particular treatment goals.
Yes. BodyTite™ can be used to tighten and lift skin without focusing on fat removal. Specialized RF energy can produce significant tissue contraction, as well as new collagen fibers to firm areas of drooping.

BodyTite™ usually requires local anesthesia. General or twilight anesthesia may be recommended, however, depending on the specifics of your procedure. Dr. Levine will discuss which type of anesthesia is ideal for your BodyTite™ treatment in NYC during your in-office consultation.
BodyTite™ is a minimally invasive lipo technique that requires virtually no downtime post-procedure. Mild bruising and swelling is common for a few days following treatment. You can typically resume daily activities immediately after completing your BodyTite™ procedure.
BodyTite™ can yield long-lasting, natural-looking improvements to body contours, with results continuing to be seen in the months following treatment. Patients can add lift to the breasts, tighten the arms and inner thighs, and slim the midsection with BodyTite™ treatment. It is recommended to maintain a consistent diet and exercise routine to further enhance your BodyTite™ results.
In order to maximize your BodyTite™ minimally invasive skin tightening results, it is important to follow all pre and post-operative instructions provided by Dr. Levine.
Certain products and supplements should be avoided in the weeks prior to your BodyTite™ procedure, unless medically necessary. By doing so, patients minimize their risk of bruising and swelling. Blood-thinners and medications that contain ibuprofen or aspirin should be avoided. Patients should also refrain from taking multivitamins and herbal supplements.
Lymphatic massage may be recommended after undergoing BodyTite™ in NYC to promote healing and enhance the appearance of skin around the treatment area. Lymphatic massage can improve your body’s immunity after liposuction, enhance your circulation, and result in smooth, glowing skin.
Certain medications, including Tylenol, Bromelain, and Arnica Montana, may be recommended to alleviate pain or discomfort post-procedure. For more details regarding our post-treatment care suggestions, click here.
