BodyTite™ - Los Angeles | Thomas Taylor, M.D.


The ultimate goal of most cosmetic surgery procedures is to TIGHTEN skin. Breast skin is filled out and tightened with implants or by doing a breast lift, abdominal skin is tightened by cutting out the loose skin with a tummy tuck, thigh and arm skin is tightened by liposuctioning the underlying fat which allows the skin to shrink gradually, and facial skin is tightened by removing skin with a facelift or filling out the surface with injectables. The common denominator is loose skin. Until recently, there has been no reliable method of tightening skin without cutting, filling, or expanding it. BodyTite™ is a scarless, minimally invasive approach to skin tightening and fat reduction that results in a rapid recovery and natural body sculpting.

The BodyTite™ Advantage

BodyTite™ is a new technology that uses radiofrequency heat and energy to tighten skin specifically. It is typically done during liposuction but can be done alone if liposuction is not necessary. BodyTite™ is the only FDA-approved device that uses radiofrequency-assisted liposuction (RFAL™) technology to destroy fat and correct skin laxity simultaneously. It can also be used independently of liposuction to tighten skin alone such as around the knees, elbows, neck, and face.

Dr. Taylor can evaluate those who would like to target stubborn, localized body fat and skin laxity during a personal consultation. To determine whether you are a good candidate for BodyTite™, you and Dr. Taylor will discuss your goals, medical history, and medical conditions.

What Does BodyTite™ Treatment Entail?

The BodyTite™ device consists of an external electrode overlying the skin and an internal cannula with an electrode on the tip, which is inserted through tiny incisions. The internal electrode delivers focused energy to fat and the deep surface of the skin while the external electrode heats the surface of the skin. This causes liquefaction of the unwanted fat and contraction of loose skin at the treatment site. Built-in thermostats on each electrode allow careful and specific monitoring of real-time tissue temperatures to prevent burn injuries. It has been shown that heating the outer and inner surfaces of skin to critical temperatures results in significant skin contraction. In addition, radiofrequency energy is a powerful stimulator of collagen synthesis. Over a period of several months, a thick layer of collagen forms under the skin in the treated areas. Collagen acts like an internal glue that further tightens the skin and smoothes its appearance.
