What is it?
- BodyTite is a body-contouring technique that uses radiofrequency-assisted liposuction (RFAL). This technique uses two electrodes, one that is inserted into the skin, and one that stays outside, to liquefy fat. The inner electrode shoots a current into the tissue, generating heat. This heat melts fat, which can then be removed forcibly or just eliminated naturally by the body. The external electrode closes the loop and also monitors body temperature, ensuring the current is safe.
