BodyTite™ Body Contouring


Most people have both loose skin and areas of stubborn fat on their body that they would love to correct without an invasive body lift and surgical liposuction. BodyTite is a revolutionary, minimally invasive liposuction treatment that also tightens the skin with very little recovery time. The radiofrequency assisted liposuction (RFAL) in BodyTite allows double board-certified cosmetic surgeon Dr. Umerah to efficiently help his patients at Women’s Health Institute to improve their body contours. BodyTite is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to safely remove fat and tighten skin without scars for fast, impressive results. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Umerah to learn more about BodyTite and other treatment options for sagging skin and fat removal.


Most areas of the body can be treated, but the most common areas are the stomach, arms, chest, knees, and thighs. The best candidates for BodyTite treatments want to:

  • Avoid surgical downtime and scarring
  • Eliminate stubborn pockets of fat
  • Improve the appearance of sagging, wrinkled skin
  • Improve the contours and tightness of the body


BodyTite is usually performed with local anesthesia, but general anesthesia may be used for patients who are more nervous or having several areas treated. The special BodyTite applicator is inserted through tiny incisions in the skin where an internal and external thermoguide will protect the patient from burns. The applicator will loosen and liquefy the fat with radiofrequency waves so the fat can be easily suctioned out of the body. The heat used during the fat removal will tighten the skin and connective tissue for immediate skin contraction. BodyTite treatments usually takes 30 – 45 minutes per area treated and multiple sessions may be needed or recommended for ideal results.


Most patients will need to rest at home for 5 – 10 days after their BodyTite treatment. A compression garment should be worn over the treated areas to promote healing while maintaining the new body shape. Some results will be seen immediately, and continue to improve for 3 – 6 months as the swelling and inflammation subside. While the fat that is removed cannot return, the remaining fat cells can become larger if the patient gains weight, so it is important to maintain a healthy, stable weight after BodyTite treatments.
