Remove Unwanted Fat Deposits Without Surgery

      BodyTite powered by Radiofrequency assisted liposuction is a revolutionary body contouring procedure that uses radiofrequency energy converted from electrical energy to melt the fat cells, while leaving the surrounding tissues unaffected.  The radiofrequency assisted liposuction (RFAL) procedure that we offer is painless and can effectively remove unhealthy and unwanted fat from the face, saddle bags, chin, inner thighs, buttocks, love handles, and abdominal areas, hips, knees, and more - with MINIMAL downtime and risk.  While removing the excess fat deposits, this new technique can firm and shape the body and reduce wrinkles - without surgery, scars and painful injections.


Innovative Device to Carry Out the Procedure

      Radiofrequency Assisted Liposuction (RFAL) is carried out with the innovative Invasix BodyTite system which comprises a bipolar radiofrequency hand piece and a RFAL computer device.  The surgeon inputs the energy to be delivered to the the fat in watts, the limit of skin temperature in degrees, and high and low limits of impedance on a user-friendly touch screen.  Excessive heating of fat and/or dermis is avoided since all parameters are controlled in a closed loop system.  In this procedure, the access incisions are only about 3mm  which is the diameter of the internal probe which delivers the energy.  A power-assisted liposuction devices is utilized to aspirate the liquefied fat.

      The BodyTite procedure using bipolar radiofrequency energy is advantageous in that it can quickly and precisely control the intensity and direction of energy to the fat, blood vessels, and dermis.  RFAL has benefits such as speedy treatment, considerably less tissue trauma, coagulation of blood vessels, controlled administering of energy, careful monitoring of skin and the subcutaneous layer, all of which makes it superior to other liposuction procedures.


Improves Patient Safety & Comfort

      The BodyTite Radiofrequency assisted liposuction procedure is performed at our state-of-the-art outpatient surgical facility.  The procedure itself takes 30-45 minutes, depending on the area treated.  Unlike traditional liposuction methods, it offers advantages in terms of safety and comfort.  while undergoing the treatment, patients feel like they are getting a hot stone massage.
