What is BodyTite™?

BodyTite™ is a new and innovative product from InMode Aesthetics that utilizes radiofrequency energy (RFAL™) to both remove fat and, most importantly, tighten overlying skin.


What is FaceTite™?

FaceTite™ is the companion product to BodyTite™, intended for facial use. While fat removal is possible, facial tightening, especially along the lower cheek, jawline and neck, is the usual goal of a FaceTite™ treatment.


What is NeckTite™?

NeckTite™ refers to using the FaceTite™ tool to provide tightening of loose neck tissue as well as fat removal.


What type of anesthesia is needed for BodyTite™ and FaceTite™?

Both BodyTite™ and FaceTite™ can be to be performed under local anesthesia. This means lower risk, lower cost and faster recovery.


What areas can BodyTite™ treat?

While almost any area of the body can be treated, BodyTite™ is most commonly used to remove fat and tighten tissues in the abdomen, flanks (waist), love-handles, thighs, back, arms and knee areas.


Can BodyTite™ lift the breasts?

Yes, because of BodyTite™’s ability to tighten skin, the breasts and arms are areas where lifting can be achieved. This is a real game changer because the undesirable scarring associated with more traditional surgical procedures in these areas is avoided.


What is the BodyTite™ and FaceTite™ recovery time?

Patients return home shortly following a BodyTite™/FaceTite™ treatment and routine activities can be resumed in a few days. This will vary with treatment area and Dr. O’Connell will review this with you at the time of your confidential consultation.


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.


Where is BodyTite™ and FaceTite™ performed?

BodyTite™ and FaceTite™ procedures are performed in the AAAASF accredited outpatient surgical facility at Total Aesthetics™ of Connecticut. We believe it is important to follow the highest standards of safety and sterility and to provide you with the utmost comfort and privacy during your visits.


How many BodyTite™ and FaceTite™ treatments are necessary?

For most patients only a single treatment is required for each body area treated.


How long does BodyTite™and FaceTite™ take?

Depending upon treatment area, BodyTite™ and FaceTite™ take approximately one hour.


What are the BodyTite™ and FaceTite™ risks?

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.
