BodyTite ™

The radiofrequency electrical energy also coagulates the small blood vessels, minimizing the risk of bruising. BodyTite™ is one of the energy-assisted devices that Dr. Mulholland deploys on almost every case of liposuction. One of the big advantages of using BodyTite™ is the enhanced contraction – up to 35% soft tissue contraction and skin tightening – after the procedure, minimizing the risk of soft tissue laxity and irregularity and often allowing liposuction patients to undergo BodyTite™ rather than the more invasive and extensive tummy tuck, arm lift and thigh lift procedures.

BodyTite™ radiofrequency-assisted liposuction is the use of gentle radiofrequency electrical energy to internally coagulate and liquefy fat cells and blood vessels.


How is the treatment performed?

Local anesthesia is inserted into the area of unwanted fat. The fat then becomes totally anesthetic, much like a dental procedure, and the gentle heating, coagulation, tightening and extraction can be performed.

Once the local anesthesia, also called tumescent anesthesia, is completed, the energy-assisted device – BodyTite™ – is deployed to liquefy, coagulate and tighten. Once this phase has occurred, this liquefied, coagulated fat is immediately aspirated with a gentle, small, blunt-nose tipped microcannula.
