"Decided on 485 cc's under the muscle. I just had my surgery yesterday and so far so good! - I'm 30 years old and I have two kids, I've wanted implants for a long time, after I breastfed my youngest who is now 5 years old, I became very deflated and hated my chest, I was a 36D. I met my surgeon Dr. Mitzuguchi about a month ago and had a virtual consultation where we decided I'd need a lift and I showed him my wish pictures, at my pre op appointment I was able to go in and try on different sizes of implants and we decided on 485 cc's under the muscle, I just had my surgery yesterday and so far so good! I'm very happy with my results so far, and dr. Mitzuguchi and his staff are amazing, very pleasant to work with and very tentative to their patients needs. I'm pretty sore today but it's nothing too bad, I'm on muscle relaxers and pain killers, and I have my first post op visit on Monday!!!"- A. / RealSelf / Jun 12, 2020

Am I a candidate for BodyTite?
BodyTite can help if you want to see better contours and skin tightness in one or many areas of your body. You may be a candidate for BodyTite if you want to eliminate pockets of fat and improve the overall look of sagging, wrinkled skin. You may have considered traditional liposuction or body lift surgery, but would prefer to avoid surgical downtime and scarring. Most areas of the body can be treated with BodyTite, but some of the common areas patients would like help with are the stomach, arms, chest, knees, and thighs. At your consultation, Dr. Mizuguchi will listen to your concerns and goals before helping you decide if BodyTite or another procedure is right for you.
how is BodyTite performed?
BodyTite is usually performed with local anesthesia, but general anesthesia may be used if you are nervous or having several areas treated. The advanced BodyTite applicator is inserted through very small incisions in your skin. BodyTite has an internal and external thermometer will protect you from burns. The applicator will loosen and liquefy the fat with radiofrequency waves so the fat can be easily suctioned out of your body. The heat used during the fat removal will tighten your skin and connective tissue for visible skin contraction. BodyTite treatments generally take about 30 – 45 minutes per area. Multiple sessions may be needed or recommended by Dr. Mizuguchi to deliver your best results.
how long is recovery after bodytite?
You will need to rest at home for 5 – 10 days after your BodyTite treatment. A compression garment should be worn over the treated areas to promote healing while maintaining your new shape. Some results can be seen immediately, but final results will not be apparent for 3 – 6 months as the swelling and inflammation subside. While the fat that is removed cannot return, the remaining fat can become larger if you gain weight, so it is crucial to maintain a healthy, stable weight after your BodyTite treatment.
Plan Your Procedure
How much does BodyTite cost?
Your cost for the BodyTite procedures depends on how many areas are being treated. Dr. Mizuguchi will explain what will be needed to reach your aesthetic goals during your consultation, where he can create your treatment plan and give you a better estimation of your costs.
Is BodyTite better than surgical options?
If you want to avoid surgical scars, longer recovery times, and the higher costs associated with cosmetic surgery, then BodyTite is a perfect solution. While traditional plastic lift surgeries like tummy tucks, arm lifts, and thigh lifts are more effective to address loose skin, BodyTite will still give you dramatic results. The added bonus with BodyTite is that liposuction is the most effective way to deal with stubborn fat in problem areas.
What is radiofrequency energy?
RF (radiofrequency) energy is a cutting-edge therapy that creates controlled heat using electrical currents. This targeted heat safely and effectively liquefies and eliminates fat cells without harming the healthy tissues around them. The RF energy also promotes the natural production of collagen and elastin that rejuvenates and tightens your skin for a younger, healthier look.
Is the BodyTite procedure safe?
Yes, BodyTite is an FDA-approved cosmetic procedure for both women and men. The internal and external thermometers ensure that the heat generated stays at a safe, therapeutic level. Because the procedure is minimally invasive and easier on your body than cosmetic surgery, patients can return to light activity the next day after their treatment. Within 5 - 10 days most patients can typically return to more strenuous activities like exercise.
