When asked about their physical features that cause feelings of insecurity, many people mention loose skin or unwanted pockets of fat. These features stand out because they’re not necessarily permanent: You can change them without altering your bone structure or even undergoing major surgery.

Cosmetic surgeon Nnaemeka Umerah, MD, and aesthetic specialist Anayo Umerah, MD, want to simplify the process of giving you your best body by offering BodyTite™, a minimally invasive body contouring procedure that uses radio-frequency-assisted liposuction (RFAL) to remove extra fat and tighten nearby skin. It may also make cellulite less conspicuous.
If your list of New Year's resolutions includes achieving your best possible body, BodyTite can help you bring that goal to fruition. In this article, we’ll tell you everything you need to know about BodyTite, its abilities, and its advantages.

BodyTite uses smaller incisions than other fat-reduction surgeries for an overall simpler experience. Among the many benefits of minimally invasive surgeries compared to more invasive options are:
Additionally, you can typically use local anesthesia for BodyTite instead of general anesthesia. With local anesthesia, you stay awake. However, if you’re treating multiple areas, your provider might recommend general anesthesia instead.
