Minimally Invasive, Yet Impressively Effective

Loose, lax skin and stubborn fatty deposits can be stubborn facts of life, but they absolutely don’t have to be permanent ones. Utilizing a patented technique known as Radio-Frequency Assisted Lipolysis (RFAL™), this minimally-invasive technique targets unwanted fatty tissue while contracting loose, sagging skin without surgery, large incisions, extensive downtime, or visible scarring.

Am I the Ideal Candidate for BodyTite?

BodyTite is just one of the many body contouring options we offer here at the Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery. When you visit Dr. Burton Sundin or Dr. Reps Sundin for your consultation, you’ll work with a highly experienced and extensively trained surgeon who will guide you to the procedural choice that is right for you. You’ll likely be an ideal candidate for BodyTite if you’re interested in enjoying a slimmer, more toned physique without any of the downtime or recovery period that tends to come with traditional surgery. BodyTite can be utilized to address unwanted fat and sagging skin on most areas of the body (except the face and neck), including:

  • Waist
  • ”Love Handles”
  • Abdomen
  • Thighs
  • ”Saddle Bags”
  • Flanks
  • Buttocks
  • Arms
  • Breast/Chest

The Benefits of Body Contouring with BodyTite

Put simply, BodyTite is ideal for anyone seeking a minimally-invasive, non-surgical way to reduce both excess body fat and loose, sagging skin. Here are just a few of the reasons our patients love the BodyTite procedure:

  • It minimizes unwanted curves, bulges, and fatty accumulations.
  • Loose, sagging skin will be tightened.
  • The treatment time is only 15 minutes per treatment area.
  • Minimal incisions are required.
  • BodyTite leaves no visible scarring
  • You’ll have less downtime than with liposuction or surgery.

  • You’ll enjoy the outfits you prefer.

Your BodyTite Consultation

Your consultation gives us a valuable opportunity to learn more about your goals and your physical characteristics, so that we can develop a bespoke treatment plan that brings both into alignment.

We’ll also give you a thorough recovery timeline and detailed instructions, in addition to scheduling follow-up appointments so we can ensure that you’re healing properly and continue to enjoy peace of mind.

Your BodyTite Experience

BodyTite utilizes a sophisticated, patented technology called Radio-Frequency Assisted Liposuction (or RFAL) that works on three separate levels, simultaneously contracting the dermis, the subdermal connective collagen matrix, and deeper fat cells. Unlike other technologies, RFAL works by passing an electrical current between a thin internal cannula placed inside the skin and an external electrode placed on top of the skin.

As the electrical current converts its energy into heat within the various layers of tissue, it simultaneously disrupts the fat cells while contracting collagen strands in the treatment area. In addition to these impressive benefits, RFAL is specially designed to maintain a constant temperature level, for consistently optimal heating over a relatively large treatment area. In other words, you’ll enjoy impressive results after a very quick and effective treatment session. 

A typical BodyTite treatment only takes about 15 minutes to complete, per treatment area. Your surgeon will make a set of incisions about the size of an 18-gauge needle, which is significantly smaller than what you might experience with traditional liposuction. If you’d like to learn more about BodyTite, or our other non-invasive options, reach out and set up your consultation. Our offices are located in Richmond, Northern Virginia, Washington DC, and Charlottesville.

Rest and Recovery After BodyTite

BodyTite is a minimally-invasive treatment that still involves the use of a liposuction cannula, so we usually recommend planning for about five to 10 days of rest and downtime. This will, of course, depend on the number and location of treatment areas. Before your procedure, we’ll help you understand exactly what you can expect from your treatment, and will ensure that you have thorough aftercare instructions.
