what is BodyTite?
Many people have both loose skin and areas of stubborn fat on their body they'd like to address without an invasive body lift or surgical liposuction. BodyTite is a revolutionary, minimally invasive liposuction procedure that also tightens your skin with minimal recovery time. The RFAL (radiofrequency-assisted liposuction) in BodyTite allows oculoplastic surgeon Dr. Kenneth Farr to efficiently help individuals improve their body contours. Many areas of the body can be treated with BodyTite, but a few of the common areas patients want help with are the arms, stomach, chest, thighs, and knees. BodyTite can safely remove fat and tighten skin without any scars for quick, impressive results. Schedule a consultation at VIP Cosmetic Surgery in Bluffton, SC to learn more about BodyTite, as well as other treatment options (like AccuTite) for fat removal and skin tightening.
"I enjoyed my consultation with Dr Farr and am so excited to proceed. I wish I had found him sooner. He answered all my questions on thread lifts and was also able to do my BOTOX on the same day. I had my threads done a week after my consultation and my results are amazing. I am very happy with his technique. His staff is also so friendly I felt right at home. Highly recommend VIP COSMETIC SURGERY."- MN / Office Visit / May 04, 2021

Who is a Candidate for BodyTite?
Most people who are in good health, have concerns about loose skin, and would like to improve their body contours without invasive surgery may be a candidate for BodyTite treatment. Dr. Farr will evaluate your medical history during an initial consultation to determine if BodyTite is a safe way to achieve your goals. BodyTite is not suitable for everyone, so it's important to have realistic expectations about what we can achieve. Inform our team of all medications you are taking, as well any allergies or medical conditions that could affect your procedure.
how does bodytite work?
BodyTite is usually performed with local anesthesia, but general anesthesia may be used if you're nervous or getting several areas treated. The specially designed BodyTite applicator is inserted through three millimeter incisions in your skin. The applicator has an external and internal thermometer to protect you from burns. The applicator will liquefy and loosen the fat using radiofrequency waves so that the fat can be easily suctioned out of your body. The heat used throughout the fat removal will tighten your skin and connective tissue for immediate skin contraction. BodyTite therapies usually take around 30 – 45 minutes for each area. We can also include AccuTite as an add-on service, which is designed to target more delicate areas on the face and body.
You will have to recover at home for 5 – 10 days following your BodyTite treatment. A compression garment should be worn on the treated areas to encourage healing while also holding your new shape. Some results can be seen immediately, but optimal outcomes will not be apparent for 3 – 6 months when the swelling and inflammation subside. Even though the fat that is removed can't return, the remaining fat can become larger if you gain weight so it is important to keep a healthy, steady weight after your BodyTite procedure.
How much does BodyTite cost?
To determine the costs of your BodyTite treatment, Dr. Farr will assess your skin condition and listen to your aesthetic goals during your consultation. He can then develop a personalized treatment plan and estimate your treatment costs.
Should I get BodyTite or plastic surgery?
BodyTite often produces amazing results to tighten and tone skin, but plastic surgery is still the most effective option for more dramatic loose or sagging skin. With BodyTite, both men and women can avoid long recovery times, surgical scars, and the higher costs associated with cosmetic surgery. During your consultation, Dr. Farr will help you decide which options are the best way to reach your aesthetic goals.
What is radiofrequency (RF) energy for aesthetic treatments?
Radiofrequency (RF) energy is a naturally occurring form of energy. When this energy is used by the BodyTite platform, it creates electrical currents that produce controlled heat. This controlled heat is then applied to the target area to eliminate fat cells and tighten skin without harming the healthy tissue around it.
Is BodyTite safe?
Yes, BodyTite is an FDA-approved cosmetic procedure. It has internal sensors and a display to ensure that the RF energy-produced heat stays at the proper therapeutic level.
How long is the recovery time after a BodyTite treatment?
Most patients return to light, easy activities very quickly after the treatment. However, strenuous activities (like exercise) should be avoided for at least 5 – 10 days.
