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 The Aesthetic Center 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.
