How does a BodyTite™ treatment work?
During a BodyTite™ procedure a solution of dilute local anesthesia is infused via extremely small incisions. BodyTite™ applies radiofrequency energy to heat the local tissues, resulting in the melting of fat cells plus tightening of the overlying skin. Residual debris is gently vacuumed away with a small liposuction cannula.
Is BodyTite™ safe?
BodyTite™ is a brief, gentle and virtually painless procedure. The technology allows a precise and tapered application of heat to the treatment area and also includes safety systems to guard against overheating.

Like many aesthetic procedures swelling and minor bruising are anticipated. There is a small risk of infection; this and other risks will be reviewed with you prior to your BodyTite™ or FaceTite™ treatment.
Are BodyTite™ and FaceTite™ non-invasive?
Because BodyTite™ and FaceTite™ require very small incisions or punctures in order to place the probe below the skin, they are technically not truly “non-invasive” but rather are what Dr. O’Connell refers to as “hybrid” procedures.
Because BodyTite™ and FaceTite™ are hybrid type procedures it’s important that the physician performing the procedure has a detailed and comprehensive knowledge of the local anatomy. Because of our training and wealth of experience with liposuction, board certified plastic surgeons are most qualified to perform BodyTite™ and FaceTite™. This is underscored by the policy of the manufacturer to only sell these products to plastic surgeons at this time.
