BodyTite Q & A

What is BodyTite?

BodyTite is a game-changing procedure that can help you achieve your body goals while minimizing your recovery time. Historically, patients have had to choose between noninvasive body sculpting treatments that simply can’t deliver dramatic results or intensive surgery, which comes with scars and lengthy downtime. But, as the first board-certified plastic surgeon in Louisiana to offer BodyTite, Dr. Peters has a body contouring alternative.

BodyTite is radiofrequency-assisted lipolysis. The radiofrequency doesn’t just melt the fat away, it also causes your skin and connective tissue to contract, giving you a smoother, slimmer body. It can transform your:

  • Stomach
  • Thighs
  • Hips
  • Arms
  • Knees
  • Back
  • Butt

How does BodyTite work?

BodyTite leverages the power of radiofrequency to safely heat the unwanted fat on your body while protecting the surrounding skin. Dr. Peters uses local anesthesia to ensure your comfort during the entire procedure.

During your BodyTite treatment, Dr. Peters employs two probes: a thin plastic one that is inserted into the area being treated and another that sits on top of the skin. Once activated, the two probes heat the tissue between them, literally melting fat away.

The application of this radiofrequency-generated heat also causes the area’s connective tissue and skin to contract. That means that as Dr. Peters liposuctions the fat away, you’re left with a more svelte, toned area – immediately.

What can I expect after my BodyTite procedure?

After your BodyTite treatment, expect to rest for one to two days. Because of the innovative technology used during the procedure, you can expect less swelling, bruising, and pain than other lipolysis procedures.

You’ll be able to appreciate the results of your BodyTite procedure right away, but they will continue to improve with time. After about 12 weeks, you’ll be able to see the full impact of your procedure. What’s more, the quality of your skin and its contouring to your body will continue to improve for the next 12 months.
