When you think of body contouring, you probably think of liposuction, which for years has been the go-to option for removing fat in order to achieve a smoother contour. Other cosmetic procedures, such as the tummy tuck and body lift, are also used to improve body contour. Similarly, facelifts are used in order to improve facial contour, allowing patients to achieve a more youthful look.
While these cosmetic procedures have been shown to be extremely beneficial in helping people to achieve the look they’ve always wanted, along with them come incisions, scars, and, more often than not, a painful recovery.
What if we told you that excisional body contouring isn’t the only way to get rid of unwelcome bulges and curves or sagging skin? Meet BodyTite. BodyTite is the future of non-excisional body contouring. This procedure uses radio-frequency assisted lipolysis. It not only melts fat but also causes the skin and underlying connective tissue to contract, which tightens the skin.
If you’re interested in tightening loose skin or getting rid of curves and bumps that don’t seem to go away with diet and exercise, then the BodyTite procedure may be exactly what you need. Keep reading to learn more about this non-invasive cosmetic procedure offered throughout Los Angeles.
Thanks to the ever-growing advances in laser technology, traditional liposuction is no longer the only way to improve body and facial contours. BodyTite is a nonsurgical procedure that melts fat and tightens the skin, giving you a smoother look wherever you most desire it.
One of the biggest benefits of this procedure is that it not only removes fat, but it also improves skin laxity. For patients who have lost weight or those who have loose skin because of aging, this procedure is able to address the two biggest sticking points for those who want to improve their look.
Because there are no extensive incisions, patients often experience shorter and less painful recovery time, as well as less swelling and bruising when compared to traditional liposuction. This means that you can get back to your normal life sooner, while also enjoying your new look.
The procedure is an outpatient procedure and doesn’t require the use of general anesthesia, which means that you can safely go home the same day.
Last, BodyTite can be used on various parts of the body, including:
- Thighs and knees
- And many other problem areas
There is also a facial procedure, known as NeckTite, which can be used to address pockets of fat and loose skin on the neck and face.
BodyTite can be used on almost any part of the body. Whether you want to remove fat from your arms, behind your knees, on your stomach, or around your waistline, this procedure can be used to achieve just that. With the added benefits of tissue tightening and improved collagen production, you’ll not only achieve the look you’ve always wanted, but you’ll also feel more confident than ever before.
Aside from the body, this laser procedure is also approved for use on the face with the NeckTite laser. If you have excess fat on your neck or have sagging skin in the area, the NeckTite procedure can be used to give you an incision-free facelift!
BodyTite is very similar to liposuction without the pain and lengthy recovery time. This procedure works by using radio frequency-assisted lipolysis (RFAL), which works to liquefy and remove fat while also tightening the skin at the same time. BodyTite involves applying thermal energy under and above the skin in order to address excess fat and loose skin in a single procedure.
During treatment, patients are given a combination of a local anesthetic and epinephrine. The local anesthetic provides pain control while epinephrine decreases bleeding during fat removal. Both are injected into the target area, which causes the fat to swell and harden, which makes removal even easier.
After the procedure, you can expect to see results in just two weeks, but the final results won’t show until three to six months after treatment.

How long does the procedure take?
BodyTite is extremely quick. In fact, the average session only lasts 30 to 45 minutes. Because the procedure only uses local anesthesia, you can drive home the same day. Recovery is also fast and simple, and you can return to normal activities a few days after treatment.
How much does BodyTite cost?
Just like results, the cost of BodyTite also depends on each patient’s individual needs. Generally, the average cost of BodyTite treatments ranges from $2,500 to $4,800. The price is highly dependent on the area that is being treated.
You can discuss costs with Dr. Grossman during your consultation.
How long does it take to see BodyTite results?
Once all of your swelling and bruising have subsided, you can expect to see results almost immediately. Depending on the area that is being treated, you may require several BodyTite treatments in order to get the results that you want.
Does BodyTite hurt?
Compared to other surgical procedures, BodyTite is relatively low pain. Patients will typically experience numbness and minor bruising after the treatment, but much less than would be experienced after liposuction or any other procedure that requires an incision.
Most patients report that numbness goes away in a few days. Patients are generally prescribed pain medication or anti-inflammatories in order to help with minor pain after the procedure, which should go away in a few weeks.
