By: Dr. Nana Mizuguchi


When it comes to losing weight, proper diet and exercise are the most common approaches. No matter how great your lifestyle is, some people still struggle with stubborn fat and loose skin. Now, you have access to advanced nonsurgical body contouring procedures through BodyTite®. Mizuguchi Plastic Surgery is proud to offer this treatment at our cutting-edge clinic in Louisville, KY.

So, is BodyTite worth it, and how does fat removal work? BodyTite uses radiofrequency-assisted liposuction (RFAL) to safely tighten skin and remove fat without invasive surgery. If you want to reshape your body and work with a reliable professional, schedule a consultation with dual board-certified aesthetic and plastic surgeon Dr. Nana Mizuguchi. We can explain the benefits of BodyTite to you.

About nonsurgical body contouring

Many people turn to plastic surgery to get rid of sagging skin and unsightly bulges. However, tummy tucks and other invasive methods often require scarring and significant downtime from daily activities. BodyTite is a revolutionary procedure that offers safe and targeted results with fewer risks. Radiofrequency-assisted liposuction dissolves unwanted fat and promotes the production of collagen in the body. This is particularly effective in areas like the abdomen and love handles. Other areas of treatment include:

  • Chin

  • Jowls

  • Lower back and flanks

  • Underarms

  • Buttocks

  • Thighs

  • Hips

  • Knees

Candidates for fat removal

Mizuguchi Plastic Surgery in Louisville, KY is excited to offer BodyTite to individuals who want satisfying body contouring results. While most candidates who seek BodyTite have experienced weight fluctuations or pregnancy, genetics can also cause loose skin and stubborn fat. Patients should be healthy and have realistic expectations prior to their procedure. BodyTite is not necessarily designed as a weight-loss tool, so we encourage you to be at or near your goal weight before deciding if nonsurgical body contouring is safe for you.

What happens during BodyTite?

Once patients are brought into the treatment area, you will sit or lie down in a comfortable position. BodyTite may be performed with local or general anesthesia based on your comfort level and how many areas are being treated. The BodyTite applicator is then gently inserted through small incisions in the skin. The device emits heat through radiofrequency energy to dissolve stubborn fat cells and trigger collagen production. Treatments take about 30 – 45 minutes per area.

How quickly can I see results?

Since BodyTite is a minimally invasive method of fat removal, it does not require downtime. You may have some swelling and inflammation, but these side effects should go down soon after your procedure. Mizuguchi Plastic Surgery can offer simple guidelines for resting and recovery at home. Some outcomes will be obvious immediately after your session, but final results take longer to appear. Your outcome will become apparent in about 3 – 6 months. We recommend maintaining a healthy lifestyle to keep your slimmer contours long-term.
