Bodytite is the best solution yet developed for minimally invasive, scarless skin tightening and elimination of fat. It allows tightening and smoothing of loose skin without surgery or scars and is truly a significant step forward in the management of these aesthetic problems. Bodytite can be used to benefit patients in most areas prone to the development of loose skin, including the abdomen, hips, thighs, arms, and knees (how many women have loose skin on their arms and knees?). As it is so safe and effective, it is an excellent aleternative to Brachioplasty (arm lift surgery) for correction of the dreaded "bat wings", thigh lift surgery, and other procedures requiring scars and operations. In some patients, the best outcomes are achieved by combining the surgical procedure with Bodytite. Bodytite (and its related treatment for the face, Facetite) utilizes radio-frequency energy delivered both above and below the skin and tissues to eliminate fat and tighten skin without scars. Research and experience have shown tightening up to an impressive 40% of the surface area.
Bodytite treatments can be done under local anesthesia for smaller areas in selected patients, with oral sedation, or under anesthesia for larger or multiple areas. It is performed under sterile conditions and usually takes no more than 30-45 minutes per area treated. Because the safety and outcome of all body contouring procedures will depend on the surgeon's understanding of the anatomy and three dimensional sense of beauty, it is critical you choose a surgeon Certified by The American Board of Plastic Surgery like Dr. Armando Soto for your Bodytite procedure.

Before your Bodytite procedure, Dr. Soto will mark the area(s) to be treated, and you will be photographed. Once the anesthetic is administered, awake patients usually feel only a bit of warmth that is not unpleasant. Once the treatment has been completed, your skin will be cleansed and you will be placed in the appropriate support garment, to be worn 24 hours a day for the first few days (Dr. Soto will advise you based on your treatment and tissue composition). Most patients experience minimal swelling, minimal to no bruising, and mild tenderness in the treated areas for a few days to a week. Return to normal social activities is possible for most patients after 48 hours. You will see improvement almost immediately- but because the primary benefit of the treatment is the long term increase in collagen and elastin production, your improvement and tightening will continue to improve and progress over the next 3-6 months.
Plan Your Procedure
How Much Does it cost ?
Treatment costs will vary according to the number of areas treated, total treatment time, the type of anesthesia used, and whether or not the procedure is combined with other treatments.
A replacement for surgery ?
In some areas and for some patients, Bodytite does represent an excellent alternative to surgery in the sense that these carefully selected patients will achieve an improvement compared to what they would expect through surgery-but without actually having a traditional operation, without long scars, and with much less expense. For other patients, Bodytite will represent a compromise- meaning that the improvement may not be quite as dramatic or smooth as they could have achieved through surgery, but because it is much less expensive and offers significant advantages of no scars and minimal recovery, is preferable for them. Finally, there are areas of the body where even surgery is not usually a great option, and in these areas, Bodytite is an absolute revolution!
Who performs the surgery ?
Dr. Soto performs all Bodytite procedures personally.
Can I combine procedures ?
Absolutely. In fact, it is Dr. Soto's artistic vision and understanding of your safety needs that allows him to maximize the benefit of this amazing treatment, whether applied independently or in combination with other procedures. To best understand what to expect and whether the combination you are interested in is possible for you, visit Dr. Soto for a consultation.
