"I was referred to Dr. Hakimi from one of his colleagues for gynecomastia surgery. I'll start off by saying Dr. Hakimi and Teofana are the sweetest people I've ever met.

"I went in for a consultation in October 2022 wanting a inner thigh lift, breast lift, and liposuction on my outer thighs. I talked to the doctor he explained everything in great detail to the point I started second guessing my decision on the inner thigh lift but then I decided to just do it. When I tell you after just 6weeks in I’m so happy with my results and my decision. He did such an awesome job and made me feel comfortable through the entire process. The office staff have also been wonderful to work with so I just wanna say thanks so much I’m eternally grateful and would highly recommend Dr. Hakimi plastic sx."- J.W. / Google / Jan 24, 2023

Can I Get BodyTite?
BodyTite can be helpful if you would like to see improved contours and skin tightness in one or multiple areas of your body. You might be a candidate for BodyTite if you want to get rid of stubborn pockets of fat and improve the look of sagging and wrinkled skin for a more youthful and attractive appearance. If you have thought about body lift surgery or traditional liposuction but would prefer to avoid surgical downtime and scarring, BodyTite could be for you. Many parts of the body can be treated with this minimally invasive procedure; however, some of the common areas patients need help with are the chest, arms, stomach, knees, and thighs. At your consultation, plastic surgeon Dr. Hakimi will listen to your concerns and goals, and together, you can decide if BodyTite or another procedure is right for you.
How Does BodyTite Work?
BodyTite is usually performed with local anesthesia, but general anesthesia can be used if you are nervous or getting several areas treated. The special BodyTite applicator is inserted via three-millimeter incisions in your skin. Internal and external thermometers will protect your skin from burns during the procedure. Dr. Hakimi will use the applicator to loosen and liquefy the fat using radiofrequency waves so the fat can be easily suctioned from your body. The heat used during your fat removal will tighten your connective tissue and skin for immediate skin contraction. BodyTite procedures normally take around 30 – 45 minutes for each area treated. Multiple treatments may be required or suggested by Dr. Hakimi to provide your best outcomes. Recovery typically takes about 5 – 10 days. A compression garment should be worn over the treated areas to promote healing while also holding your new contours. Some outcomes may be visible instantly; however, your final results will be apparent in about 3 – 6 months as the inflammation and swelling subside. Even though the fat that's removed can't return, remaining fat may become larger if you gain weight so it is important to keep a healthy, steady weight after your BodyTite treatment.
