At Setty Plastics & Aesthetics, we recognize that it can be extremely difficult and even impossible at times to remove those extra few pounds of stubborn fat even with the proper diet and exercise. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Naveen Setty offers a minimally invasive treatment solution, InMode's BodyTite, to both men and women at his practice. The radiofrequency energy emitted by the BodyTite technology enhances the appearance of the tissues and fat within the treated area without excision. This improvement is a great option if you're wanting a more contoured physique without the invasiveness and recovery time that comes with surgery. Utilizing radiofrequency-assisted liposuction, BodyTite is able to both target fat cells and tighten the skin concurrently. This procedure has been approved by the FDA as being safe and effective, with many patients reporting multiple inches lost after an in-office treatment or as an adjunct to liposuction in the operating room.
Do you wish you could achieve a tighter and slimmer physique without invasive surgery like liposuction? BodyTite may be an option for you. This innovative, radiofrequency-assisted lipolysis removes fat and firms the skin through heat, not suction. With BodyTite at Setty Plastics & Aesthetics in McKinney, and Dallas, TX, we can achieve surgical results without the scars of a surgery.
"Dr. Setty and his entire team are incredible! I've never had any type of plastic surgery done before but after 2 c-sections I decided it was time. I researched countless doctors in the area and decided to go in for a consultation with Dr. Setty. As soon as I met Dr. Setty, I knew I made the right choice. He and his medical assistant Giovanna were both so helpful and sincere walking me through every part of my procedure (in office lipo and BodyTite). His office manager Jessic...a, is so personable and made me incredibly comfortable she even checked in on me the day before the procedure to see if I had any last minute questions. Once the procedure was complete, he personally called to check on me that evening, which meant a lot! They are with you every step of the way, and they aren't happy unless you are thrilled with your results, which I am! They make you feel like you are their only patient and for that I will always be grateful. If you're looking for a professional team that truly cares about what is best for you, this is it!"- L.H. / Facebook / Jun 12, 2018

"Bodytite and Facetite - Day of procedure - Dr. Setty is amazing. Explains in detail step by step. Made me feel incredibly confident about having the procedure with him."- H. / RealSelf / Jul 11, 2018
"Big Results, Short Down Time - I saw Dr. Setty for FaceTite and BodyTite (arms) and couldn't be more pleased with the results. Both were done in office under local anesthesia with very little down time. I had noticed my jawline was surprisingly slack when I saw profile pics so I asked for a quick procedure with very little down time. Facetite checks all the boxes. I feel years younger!"- C. / RealSelf / Aug 26, 2018

When you have minor stubborn bulges of fat on the abdomen, back, flanks, thighs, arms, and knees, this may qualify you for BodyTite. Radiofrequency is well known for its ability to produce tighter skin, so if you have areas with mild wrinkling, you may also see fewer signs of aging (fine lines and wrinkles) in the manipulated area as well. Keep in mind that BodyTite is is not a recommended weight loss solution and is used only for toning the body and removing small amounts of fat from patients with trouble spots resistant to diet and exercise, such as the following areas:
Don't worry if you have several problem areas because BodyTite is versatile and customizable. Our patients can choose from several of their stubborn areas to eliminate unwanted fat (love handles, buttocks, hips, thighs, arms, back, and abdomen). Multiple areas of the body can be treated in a single visit, and most times, only one visit is required to achieve the desired results.
In the comfort of one of our tranquil, private treatment rooms, your BodyTite process can last between 30 – 45 minutes per area. We will do our best to make your appointment relaxing and comfortable, and we will also be using a local anesthetic. Dr. Setty and his medical team will prep your skin, make tiny 3 mm incisions so that the BodyTite handpiece can be inserted right into the adipose tissue of the problem fatty area. While the radiofrequency energy heats to dissolve the fat, we will observe an internal and external thermometer to control the temperature. The heat will cause the fat cells to liquefy for a quick removal with a liposuction cannula. In addition, the heat prompts a contraction of the surface tissues, which allows the prevention of an uneven or irregular appearance. This all-in-one fat removal and the skin tightening procedure can produce smoother, more natural-looking results. The process of heating the targeted area, coupled with the gentle removal of fat, reduces the bruising and swelling that happens following the procedure. BodyTite causes less trauma to the body, which means less pain in the administered areas. Most patients report minimal discomfort that can be managed with mild pain medication if needed.
What to Expect
Once you are discharged, we will send you home with special care instructions for optimal healing results. After a BodyTite treatment, patients should rest for 5 – 10 days with no heavy lifting or strenuous exercise allowed. You may also be asked to wear a compression garment on the treatment area.
While you may see minor improvements within the first two weeks, you will see the most results in 3 – 6 months after the collagen in your skin has replenished and rejuvenated the skin. You may also want to talk to Dr. Setty about repeat treatments in the future for continual results. If you happen to gain weight, the area will still stretch and expand with a fluctuation of fat cells. Maintaining a healthy weight will prolong your results. Your skin will also still age and change as you get older.

How long do the results of BodyTite last?
The fat removal process performed during BodyTite treatment combined with liposuction is permanent. The fat cells removed will never be replaced. However, the remaining fat cells left can grow larger if you do not maintain a proper diet and healthy lifestyle. The skin tightening that occurs with BodyTite is due to permanent changes being made to the skin. New collagen and elastin are formed due to the heating from BodyTite. However, as you age, some of the skin will again lose some of the gained elasticity and collagen normally just like any other areas of your body not treated with BodyTite.
