BodyTite &
Body Contouring  

What we tell our patients: There is finally a body contouring treatment to significantly tighten skin on the body. BodyTite uses radiofrequency energy to heat your skin from the inside and out while simultaneously destroying fat.

“BodyTite targeted that extra bit of fat and loose skin on my midsection that wouldn’t budge with diet and exercise. I was back to work in 2 days.”

How does BodyTite work?


Come see us

At your complimentary consultation, tell us which body areas you’d like to shrink and tighten and we’ll help you choose the best treatment. BodyTite is a cosmetic treatment that reduces fat and tightens skin by up to 40%. Common treatment areas include aging knees, loose arm skin, inner thighs, bra bulges, and lax abdominal skin. Nonsurgical body contouring treatments include BodyTite, Smartlipo, Coolsculpting, and Morpheus Body.


Easy 90-minute treatment

On the day of BodyTite treatment, you may or may not opt to take a mild sedative and narcotic before treatment. The first step of BodyTite after prepping and cleansing the areas is to numb the areas with local anesthetic. Then, Dr. Lo uses the BodyTite handpiece to heat the subcutaneous tissue and melt unwanted fat while heating the external skin simultaneously for optimal tightening. Finally, a small amount of suction may be performed.


Results in days to weeks

After BodyTite you will be required to wear compression on the area treated for up to a week. The area may be swollen and/or bruised. BodyTite recovery is much easier than Smartlipo, liposuction and surgery. BodyTite results are visible in a few days and your new shape continues to improve for 6 months as the skin tightening and collagen stimulation continues.

Body contouring treatments: an overview

AccuTite is the smallest minimally invasive RF contraction device out there. Designed by InMode, AccuTite provides pinpoint accuracy for reducing fat in tiny areas like the knees and bra bulges.

BodyTite as the name suggests is a minimally invasive body contouring treatment used to tighten skin and eliminate fat. BodyTite is excellent for patients who are close to normal body weight but have stubborn fat bulges or loose skin. It’s most popular on the arms, abdomen, thighs and bra bulges. BodyTite works great on gynecomastia, too!

Smartlipo, aka Laser Liposuction, is an in office liposuction treatment that dramatically reduces fat bulges (up to 80%). The laser ensures a very smooth result compared to traditional liposuction. And there is no general anesthesia. Smartlipo liposuction can be performed on multiple areas at once.

Liposuction vs Smartlipo vs BodyTite


Liposuction is a surgical treatment that is performed under general anesthesia to permanently remove fat. Traditional liposuction reduces fat but does not tighten skin. Smooth liposuction results are difficult with traditional liposuction. Traditional liposuction has more risks and a longer recovery than laser assisted liposuction or Smartlipo and BodyTite but an easier recovery than a surgical tummy tuck.

Smartlipo laser liposuction

Smartlipo is an advanced form of liposuction that is performed under local anesthesia. It uses a laser to heat the under skin and deeper tissues. Smartlipo provides optimal results in fat reduction with less trauma than traditional liposuction and contracts skin by about 20%. Smartlipo laser assisted liposuction can be a better treatment than BodyTite in larger volume cases. Stubborn fat bulges can be reduced by 80% with Smartlipo.

BodyTite Body contouring

BodyTite is an advanced body contouring treatment performed under local anesthesia that permanently removes fat and tightens skin by up to 40%! BodyTite uses radiofrequency to heat the external skin and deeper tissues simultaneously. BodyTite can be a better, shorter, and easier treatment than Smartlipo in smaller cases. BodyTite is often combined with Morpheus Body for more skin tightening and smoothing.

“BodyTite is the body contouring treatment of choice when our patients need optimal skin tightening and mild fat reduction. Skin laxity is a common problem after weight fluctuations and with just general aging. Even patients in their 70s see great tightening!”

Is there always suction with BodyTite and FaceTite?

No – on smaller patients’ bodies, or smaller faces where skin tightening is primary concern, BodyTite, AccuTite, and FaceTite often do not need suction or very little suction. This can be discussed at your complimentary consultation.

How many BodyTite procedures have you done?

BodyTite is simply an updated way to perform heat-assisted liposuction which we’ve been doing for 14 years. Believe us, it’s way easier than the earliest versions of liposuction!

Can I have fat reduction without downtime?

BodyTite has about 3 days of downtime, and patients who want fat reduction in the belly, arms, back, thighs, or love handles without any downtime may choose Coolsculpting at our offices in Petoskey or Traverse City.
