BodyTite™ Liposuction FAQ

What is BodyTiteTM?
Introduced by InvasixTM, BodyTiteTM is a sophisticated and unique body sculpting system that uses Radio Frequency Assisted Liposuction (RFAL) technology to remove excess body fat. It is a minimally invasive and safe approach to liposuction, which can bring dramatic aesthetic results with minimal downtime. The device is currently awaiting FDA approval.

How does BodyTiteTM liposuction work?
The procedure begins when the surgeon inputs a very small cannula (tube) approximately 3mm in diameter into the treatment area. The probe delivers the required radiofrequency energy to burn the body fat, causing them to rupture. The liquefied fat is aspirated using a power-assisted liposuction device. Excessive heating of fat and/or dermis is avoided since all parameters are controlled in a closed loop system.

Who is a good candidate for the BodyTiteTM procedure?
Ideal candidates for BodyTiteTM procedure are those who are healthy with normal body weight, but have areas of fat that are resistant to diet or exercise. They must have realistic expectations regarding the results.
