Minimally Invasive Fat Reduction Plus Skin Tightening in One Quick Procedure

When we envision losing fat, be it through diet and exercise or liposuction, we also envision smooth, firm body contours. Achieving this goal requires both fat reduction and skin tightening. With FDA-cleared BodyTite in Paramus, New Jersey, at Parker Center for Plastic Surgery, we help people from Ridgewood and throughout Bergen County, North New Jersey, and surrounding areas achieve both in a single minimally invasive procedure with little to no downtime.

What Is BodyTite?

BodyTite uses focused radiofrequency (RF) energy to melt fat and stimulate the body to form collagen, resulting in skin tightening. While there are other RF devices available, BodyTite (along with its smaller probe siblings, FaceTite and AccuTite, used for smaller treatment areas) is unique in its bipolar system that applies RF energy above and below the skin, resulting in more thorough body reshaping.

What Are the Benefits of BodyTite?

BodyTite is useful nearly anywhere on the body, including the abdomen, arms, chest, back, hips, knees, and thighs. It offers a variety of benefits, which include:

  • Reduces fat and tightens skin with one procedure
  • Involves local anesthesia only
  • Requires minimal downtime—most patients need 3 days or fewer
  • Virtually scarless
  • Provides desired results with a single treatment in most cases

How Much Does BodyTite Cost in Paramus, NJ?

The cost for a BodyTite procedure at our Paramus, New Jersey, will depend on the specific treatment areas. You will be given a personalized cost estimate during your cosmetic consultation with Dr. Parker.

How Does BodyTite Work?

BodyTite penetrates into the skin 2 to 6 cm

Dr. Parker will first numb the treatment area with a local anesthetic just before employing the BodyTite bipolar treatment applicator. This applicator consists of a very thin probe inserted underneath the skin and an external RF transmitter that is run along the skin of the area being treated. RF energy is emitted between the internal probe and the external transmitter. The sophisticated BodyTite instrumentation monitors the internal and external temperatures, allowing precise heating of the tissues beneath the skin. The RF energy melts fat, induces immediate skin contraction, and stimulates the body to form collagen for several months after the procedure is finished.

Here at Parker Center, we have all the latest technology to customize your treatment, including:

  • BodyTite for larger areas.
  • FaceTite for the cheeks, jawline, and neck.
  • AccuTite, the smallest FDA-cleared radiofrequency device on the market, allows us to safely and accurately tighten skin and treat small and delicate areas, such as around the knees, between the breasts, and around the underarms.

What Is Recovery Like After BodyTite?

Patients typically experience some relatively minor discomfort, swelling, and little bruising in the treatment areas. A compression garment is worn for a variable period of time depending on the area being treated and patient needs. Dr. Parker will discuss this with you at the time of your consultation. Patients are up and walking the day of surgery, can shower the next day, and are ready to return to activities of daily living within 1 to 3 days.

How Long Does It Take To See BodyTite Results?

Results are often visible shortly after BodyTite, and they continue to improve over the next 3 to 6 months as skin contracts to your slimmer contours and new collagen is produced.

Is BodyTite Permanent?

Results from BodyTite should last as long as you maintain your weight and lead a healthy lifestyle.

Is BodyTite a Type of Liposuction?

While BodyTite does reduce fat, it is mainly a skin tightening procedure. Here is how they compare:

  • Liposuction is excellent for reshaping multiple areas, reducing larger amounts of fat, and sculpting a feature in detail. However, liposuction cannot tighten skin—and in some cases removing fat can actually make stretched skin look worse. Liposuction also usually requires general anesthesia and several days of downtime to recover. While Dr. Parker takes care to place liposuction incisions where they are not easy to see and scars usually fade significantly, liposuction does leave a small scar.
  • BodyTite offers an alternative to liposuction for patients who want to reduce fat but have less-than-perfect skin elasticity. In fact, for patients seeking a modest fat reduction, BodyTite can be a better option than liposuction. It can be done with local anesthesia, and most patients need only a day or two of downtime.
