Keller, for residents of Santa Barbara, Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, and neighboring communities in Southern California.

What is BodyTite™?

BodyTite™ is a sophisticated device that uses patented Radio Frequency-Assisted Liposuction (RFAL™) technology to achieve dramatic body contouring and skin tightening without surgery.

What is BodyTite™ used for?

BodyTite™ is used to eliminate stubborn fat, smoothen cellulite, and tighten the body contour. BodyTite™ uses advanced radio frequency technology to achieve dramatic body contouring in the tummy, hips, buttocks, thighs, knees, arms, back, and other areas such as the neck, chin, and jawline.

How does BodyTite™ work?

BodyTite™ uses patented RFAL™ technology to gently melt away excess fat through a tiny incision camouflaged in an inconspicuous location. By pre-melting the fat cells, extracting them is far less traumatic and reduces pain and inflammation. One of the key benefits of BodyTite™ is its ability to safely and precisely deliver deep, gentle heating that achieves significant body tightening, often with soft tissue contraction of up to 40 percent.

What happens during a BodyTite™ treatment?

You will be lightly sedated to prevent any potential discomfort, and the treatment is performed using a thin tube, or cannula, inserted through a tiny incision in an inconspicuous location.  Precisely controlled heat generated by radio frequency energy is delivered directly to the treatment area, stimulating the skin and soft tissue to contract and tighten, which causes fat cells to break down. Pre-treating the fat with RFAL™ technology produces a gentle aspiration and significantly reduces discomfort associated with many other procedures.

What kind of results does BodyTite™ provide?

BodyTite™ achieves dramatic fat reduction and body tightening results, firming and toning areas such as the tummy, hips, buttocks, thighs, knees, arms, back, chin, neck, and other problem areas.  Treated areas will exhibit a reduction in inches and a more toned and defined contour.

How do I know if BodyTite™ is right for me?

BodyTite™ is ideal for adults who have good skin laxity and prefer to avoid a more invasive procedure such as liposuction or plastic surgery.  It is an excellent treatment for younger patients who want to maintain a youthful body contour into middle age.  Other body sculpting options may be more appropriate than BodyTite™ for those who have lost significant skin laxity and elasticity. The best way to know for sure is to visit one of our convenient offices and have Dr. Keller or any of our specialists evaluate your medical history and condition, as well as your aesthetic goals, to recommend the most suitable treatment options for you.

Is BodyTite™ painful?

BodyTite™ is a gentle and safe procedure that is typically performed under local anesthesia or light sedation and does not require general anesthesia or a long recovery period. The pre-heating of soft tissue in the treatment area allows for precise, gentle extraction of excess fat clusters, reducing the likelihood of bruising and swelling.  Most patients report some tenderness in the treatment area immediately following the procedure, but do not describe the procedure as a painful experience.
