About BodyTite

Most people have both loose skin and areas of stubborn fat on their body that they would love to correct but without an invasive body lift and surgical liposuction. BodyTite is a revolutionary, minimally invasive liposuction treatment that also tightens your skin with very little recovery time. The radiofrequency-assisted liposuction (RFAL) in BodyTite allows board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Daniel Del Vecchio to efficiently help his patients in Boston, MA 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.

Ideal Candidates

BodyTite can help if you want to see better contours and skin tightness in one or several areas of your body. You may be a candidate for BodyTite if you want to eliminate stubborn pockets of fat and improve the appearance of sagging, wrinkled skin. You may have considered traditional liposuction or body lift surgery but would prefer to avoid surgical downtime and scarring. Most areas of the body can be treated with BodyTite, but some of the more common areas patients want help with are the chest, arms, stomach, knees, and thighs. During your initial consultation, Dr. Del Vecchio will listen to your needs and goals before helping you decide if BodyTite or another procedure is right for you.

Surgical Technique

BodyTite is usually performed with local anesthesia, but general anesthesia may be used if you are nervous or having several areas treated. The special BodyTite applicator is inserted through tiny incisions in your skin. BodyTite has an internal and external thermometer that will protect you from burns. The applicator will loosen and liquefy the fat with radiofrequency waves so the fat can be easily suctioned out of your body. The heat used during the fat removal will tighten your skin and connective tissue for immediate skin contraction. BodyTite treatments usually take about 30 – 45 minutes per area treated. Multiple sessions may be needed or recommended by Dr. Del Vecchio to deliver your best results.

What to Expect

You will need to rest at home for 5 – 10 days after your BodyTite treatment. A compression garment should be worn over the treated areas to promote healing while maintaining your new body shape. Some results will be seen immediately, but final results will not be apparent 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 you gain weight so it is important to maintain a healthy, stable weight after your BodyTite treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does BodyTite cost?
The total cost of your BodyTite treatment will depend on the number of areas being treated and our facility fees. During your initial meeting with Dr. Del Vecchio, he will discuss all of your cosmetic concerns and create an individualized treatment plan that meets your unique needs. From there, he can estimate your out-of-pocket costs and review all of your payment options. We can also provide information on low-medical financing.

Surgical options?
BodyTite is a great treatment option for men and women who want to avoid long recovery periods, surgical scars, and the higher costs of surgery. Although BodyTite produces stunning outcomes, traditional lift surgeries, such as tummy tucks, arm lifts, and thigh lifts, are the most effective method for removing excess skin. Liposuction is also the best option for addressing isolated pockets of fat. When you visit our office, Dr. Del Vecchio can discuss the benefits and differences of both options to help determine which one is ideal for you and your needs.

What is radiofrequency?
Radiofrequency (RF) is an innovative technology that uses electrical currents to emit controlled thermal energy. This heat is then used to target fat cells without harming the surrounding tissue. It also aids in promoting collagen and elastin production for taut, healthy skin.
