What Is BodyTite?
Do you have loose skin and areas of excess fat on your body that you'd like to correct but without an invasive body lift and surgical liposuction? BodyTite is an innovative, minimally invasive liposuction procedure, which can tighten your skin with very little recovery time. The radiofrequency-assisted liposuction (RFAL) in BodyTite allows plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Hakimi to effectively help Beverly Hills, the Valley, and Los Angeles, CA men and women enhance their body shape. Approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), BodyTite can safely remove fat and tighten skin without scars for fast results.

"Breast, face and hand fat transfer - they look how they did when I was younger - I went to Dr. Hakimi for awake fat transfer to the face, breasts and hands (with lipo to the arms and inner thighs). I actually have a second session booked to do 360 lipo and bra roll with a second breast fat transfer (which I’ll decide as we get closer if I actually still need). I am beyond thrilled with the results. I know several people who have booked consults with him after seeing my results. For the face, I had the fat put in my temples, cheeks, under eyes, lips and chin. I’m almost 35 and my face looks like it did when I was in my early 20’s and it looks so much more natural than anytime I’ve ever gotten filler. For my hands, they were bony and now they look refreshed and supple (for lack of a better, less cringy word). As for my breasts, I will say when I was younger I was a full D slash sometimes DD depending on the brand, so I had the basic shape to begin with but they had lost fullness as I slimmed down over the years. I’m about 2 months post opp and I have to say, my breasts look like bazoongas (that’s the medical term, right?). They look how they did when I was younger which is exactly what I was hoping for. I will say, the procedure itself is unpleasant. The numbing part isn’t bad, stings a little but from what I remember Dr. Hakimi has a wiggle-the-skin technique to help distract from the sting. The fat transfer to the breasts you definitely feel and was the most painful part of the day and recovery. I did have a lot of work on a lot of different areas done in one day, so my recovery was probably longer than people who do less. Also, for the face, they will warn you and they are not kidding, the face swelling looks bad for about a week to 10 days. At about 2 weeks my face looked like perfection.Dr. Hakimi was very attentive following the procedure and always answered my text messages very promptly. I’m very type A and have anxiety, so he deserves extra points for being so patient with me."- M. / RealSelf / Feb 15, 2022

"Amazing experience! I had my 1st plastic surgery experience with Dr. Hakimi. I had a PRECISION SCULPT® Chin, Neck lipo with Renuvion Skin Tightening. He's awesome! I just had my 1 month follow up and the results are already amazing! I'm bad for pain tolerance and am afraid of being put to sleep BUT this process was done while I was awake, it was quick, and almost painless!

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.
