Sagging skin and stubborn, excess fat can not only affect your self-confidence. These concerns can have a negative impact on your overall quality of life as well.
The Hurwitz Center offers BodyTite® as an effective, minimally invasive tummy tuck alternative for patients with a mild amount of sagging skin.
So why choose BodyTite?
Improve Your Confidence and Quality of Life
BodyTite can reduce sagging skin in as little as 15 minutes without major scarring or a lengthy recovery.
The advanced technology has built-in safeguards and automatic cut-off levels, making it safer than other systems.
BodyTite typically costs significantly less than traditional procedures, such as abdominoplasty.
What Is BodyTite?
BodyTite differs from other body contouring procedures because it relies on radio-frequency technology to tighten and lift skin without larger incisions required for traditional contouring. The advanced technology achieves 3-D contraction of the dermis, subdermal connective tissue matrix, and deeper layers of fat. With BodyTite, patients with moderately sagging skin due to dramatic weight loss or aging can experience improved definition.*
Does BodyTite really live up to the hype?
Impressive Patient Satisfaction Rates
What to Expect during Treatment
- First, we will administer a combination of local anesthetic and oral sedation to ensure you remain comfortable and relaxed.
- Then, your plastic surgeon will make a very small incision and gently insert a small cannula, or tube, under the skin which will apply controlled thermal energy.
- A radiofrequency electrode attached to the cannula is placed on top of the skin.
- The tube and electrode work together to eliminate fat cells while tightening the skin, causing uniform contraction.
- Your plastic surgeon will carefully manipulate these two elements to accurately target problem areas for tighter, smoother-looking skin.
Take a Closer Look at the BodyTite Procedure
BodyTite Offers a Quick Recovery Process
Typically, patients can return to normal activities within two to 10 days of their procedure.
During recovery, you should:
- Avoid high-impact activities until we advise otherwise.
- Wear your compression garment as instructed.
- Manage discomfort with over-the-counter pain medication.
- Your desired results play one of the largest roles in how much BodyTite costs. However, this minimally invasive option is typically much less expensive than other body contouring surgeries.
You may experience some minor bruising or numbness immediately after treatment. However, these symptoms typically resolve within a few days. Most patients report that their recovery has only a minor impact on their day-to-day lives.
Will BodyTite really give me the results I want?
Final Effects Take about Six Months
Most patients begin to notice their first signs of improvement within one to three months of the procedure. You will likely experience full results within about six to nine months.
Generally, patients experience a substantial improvement after a single procedure. However, you can enhance your results with additional BodyTite treatments or with one of our other body contouring or non-surgical options.

So what are my other options?
Choosing the Right Treatment for You
A tummy tuck can address large amounts of excess skin and repair damaged abdominal muscles. However, it requires a longer recovery period.
While more invasive than BodyTite, liposuction can eliminate larger quantities of fat. It does not offer the same skin-tightening benefits.
An arm lift can target sagging skin and fat on your upper arms. However, it is a more invasive surgical procedure.
Similar to an arm lift, thigh lifts target excess tissue on the legs. As a major surgical procedure, there is more recovery time involved.
This procedure can create a more masculine chest for the right patients. It requires roughly the same recovery time as a breast reduction.
