While diet and exercise are at the heart of staying fit, they may not be enough. Stubborn areas can remain around the neck, abdomen, hips, buttocks, inner and outer thighs, arms and knees. Dr. Samuels is pleased to offer a full suite of procedures, including BodyTite, that expertly sculpt and contour the body without excessive downtime. BodyTite is an FDA-approved, minimally invasive procedure that gently emulsifies and removes unwanted fat for effective body contouring and significant skin contraction. That means a slim, trim, smooth you.

Quick & Effective Radiofrequency Assisted Liposuction

BodyTite is one of the most advanced new treatments that sculpt the body without surgery. For most men and women, BodyTite can be carried out under local (awake) anesthesia. For larger or multiple areas, Dr. Samuels may recommend in-office IV sedation. A tiny 3mm incision is made and a cannula is placed to deliver targeted radio-frequency energy that liquefies fat which is then gently suctioned away. The radiofrequency energy is delivered precisely where needed without damaging surrounding tissue. At the same time, an electrode slides along the skin’s surface to measure temperature and heat the skin to promote collagen remodeling and skin tightening.

Patients will see substantial body contouring and the added benefit of skin tightening. Results are seen immediately with most noticeable results after six months. Multiple areas can be treated in a single visit in 30-45 minutes. downtime is typically 1-2 days but can take up to 10 days depending on treatment area.

The benefits to the patient are many:

  • In-office, minimally invasive procedure
  • No general anesthesia
  • Fat removal with reduced risk of lumps and bumps
  • Skin and soft tissue tightening greater than 35%
  • Minimal pain, bruising and swelling
  • Enhanced aesthetic results
  • Versatile procedure for small-scale as well as large-volume sculpting
