FAQ - BodyTite™
Q: What is BodyTite™?
A: BodyTite™ is an innovative device from Invasix that uses radiofrequency assisted liposuction (RFAL) technology to effectively remove unhealthy and unwanted fat from various parts of the body. The procedure is also effective for cellulite reduction.
Q: What are the benefits of RFAL?
- Safe, quick treatment
- Better body contouring results
- Effective skin tightening
- No pain, scars, surgical trauma or recovery downtime
- Faster recovery
- Lesser downtime
- Enhanced soft-tissue contraction capabilities
Since the fat is melted before extraction, the removal of fat is a far less traumatic process, greatly reducing post-procedural pain, swelling or discomfort.
Q: What areas can be treated?
A: The device is ideal to treat different body areas including the waist or (love handles), chin, inner and outer thighs, hips, abdomen, ankles, back, arms, neck, and knees.
Q: Is this type of liposuction safer than the traditional procedure?
A: This FDA-approved procedure is a safe alternative to traditional liposuction. Performed under local anesthesia or light sedation, this virtually painless procedure offers advantages in terms of safety and comfort.

Q: What does the procedure involve?
A: The BodyTite™ device uses patented RFAL™ (Radio Frequency Assisted Liposculpting) technology to safely & gently melt and remove excess fat through a cannula inserted via a small incision. The surrounding tissues are unaffected thereby minimizing bleeding and trauma. The risk of complications is minimal as the device is designed to provide the surgeon with immediate feedback on the skin temperature and the progress of the treatment.
BodyTite's gentle and deep heating will provide body tightening effects and takes only a short time to complete and involves minimal downtime. The procedure typically takes about 30 - 45 minutes, depending upon the complexity and the number of areas treated.
Q: How long will it take to see the results?
A: Results can be seen immediately, with best results noticeable after 6-12 weeks.
Q: What makes the recovery faster?
A: You can return to your normal activities a few days after the treatment. The BodyTite™ hand-piece is designed to be minimally invasive, ensuring skin tightening with virtually no scarring and no stitches required. This makes the recovery process even quicker.
Q: Just like other liposuction procedures, can BodyTite liposuction be combined with fat transfer?
A: Those undergoing BodyTite™ liposuction can also opt to have a fat transfer procedure simultaneously. Women can choose to enhance their buttocks with the extracted fat.
