Most people have both loose skin and areas of stubborn fat on their body that they would love to correct without an invasive surgery and and surgical liposuction. BodyTite is a minimally invasive liposuction treatment that also tightens the skin with very little recovery time. The radiofrequency-assisted liposuction (RFAL) in BodyTite allows Dr. Kristen Ann Aliano Messina, and board-certified facial surgeon Dr. Vu Ho to efficiently help our patients at Beyond Beautiful Texas in Plano, TX improve their body contours. BodyTite is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to safely remove fat and tighten skin without scars for fast, impressive results. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Ho or Dr. Aliano Messina to learn more about BodyTite and other treatment options for sagging skin and fat removal.

"Amazing Spa and Services! - I have done a dermaplane and facial combo for years but Beyond Beautiful and Sara in specific are amazing! Dermaplaning takes off all of the dead surface skin and the hydro facial cleans your skin To perfection. It feels and looks amazing afterwards. Dr. Vu does is spectacular with Botox, natural but smooth. I would highly recommend."- T. / RealSelf / Aug 13, 2020
"I went to Beyond Beautiful for PicoSure laser treatments for my hyperpigmentation from years and years of acne. I was nervous because I knew the negative effects lasers can have on ethnic skin. However, Sarah was very thorough with her explanations and treatment plan. She knows what she is doing and it made it that much easier to trust her. She also has had experience with doing laser treatments on asian skin tones. The laser itself was not painful. Numbing cream is applied for 15-30 minutes prior to the laser. Your face is red afterwards for about 30 minutes, but otherwise no huge downtime like other lasers. I was able to go about my day as normal the day of. I started seeing results within 3-4 weeks and could see my hyperpigmentation fading well! Overall, I am happy with my treatment and Sarah and will be getting more treatments in the future from her!"- B.H. / Google / Aug 12, 2020
"I had my ZO 3 step peels earlier this year- one in January and the 2nd in February. Sarah did such an awesome job. It was not painful at all- there is a fan you can hold to keep the cool air on your face. Sarah talked me through the process and the aftercare. There was no peeling for almost 3 days. It started peeling around my chin and mouth, then the 4th day it started working its way up my face. The peeling was not painful and was completely gone after about the 6th day. My face was refreshed and had new pink skin. If you are considering this peel I highly recommend! It is worth the money and so easy. Sarah can answer all your questions and makes herself available if you have questions throughout the process. I will be doing another one this winter!"- K.C. / Google / Aug 12, 2020
"The most amazing thing about this procedure is that it does not alter how I look and no one knew anything was done - The process was so easy and Dr. Ho and staff were kind, friendly and helpful. I had this procedure done by Dr. Ho about 10 years ago and it was time for a touch-up. The most amazing thing about this procedure is that it does not alter how I look and no one knew anything was done. I just looked fresher and less hagged-out and tired. I would recommend this procedure to anyone who wanted to look a bit fresher and happier."- D. / RealSelf / Jun 29, 2020
Most areas of the body can be treated, but the most common areas are the stomach, arms, chest, knees, and thighs. The best candidates for BodyTite treatments want to:
- Avoid surgical downtime and scarring
- Eliminate stubborn pockets of fat
- Improve the appearance of sagging, wrinkled skin
- Improve the contours and tightness of the body
What to Expect
BodyTite is usually performed with local anesthesia, but general anesthesia may be used for patients who are more nervous or having several areas treated. Procedures under general anesthesia are performed in a certified operating room facility. The special BodyTite applicator is inserted through three one-millimeter incisions in the skin where an internal and external thermometer will protect the patient from burns. The applicator will loosen and liquefy the fat with radiofrequency waves so the fat can be easily suctioned out of the body. The heat used during the fat removal will tighten the skin and connective tissue for immediate skin contraction. BodyTite treatments usually take 30 – 45 minutes per area treated, and multiple sessions may be needed or recommended for ideal results.
Most patients will need to rest at home for 5 – 10 days after their BodyTite treatment. A compression garment should be worn over the treated areas to promote healing while maintaining the new body shape. Some results will be seen immediately, but final results will not be visible for 3 – 6 months as the swelling and inflammation subside. While the fat that is removed cannot return, the remaining fat cells can become larger if the patient gains weight so it is important to maintain a healthy, stable weight after BodyTite treatments.
