We all try to look our best. And while diet and exercise are the cornerstones of looking and feeling healthy, they sometimes aren't enough to achieve the body goals we set for ourselves. New technology made available exclusively to board-certified plastic surgeons, allows Dr. Greg Ratliff to offer a new type of procedure, which can give surgical results without the scars! He was one of the first surgeons to offer these procedures in a four-state region and is still among a small group of practitioners who have this technology available.
What is BodyTite?
BodyTite is a minimally invasive procedure that is used to shape, tighten and lift areas of the body without using a scalpel or leaving a scar. You get surgical-like results, without the added downtime. BodyTite uses radio-frequency assisted lipolysis (RFAL) to remove fat from the treated area and tighten the skin, thus addressing shortcomings associated with traditional liposuction or surgical body lifts.
It is a great solution for individuals who are looking to reduce fat without leaving saggy, wrinkly skin. It also helps improve saggy skin after weight loss or due to aging.

This procedure is the next best thing to a surgical procedure, for those patients who don't want to have a dramatic surgery!
Anyone is a candidate for BodyTite. But the most successful candidates have been those who have a moderate or small amount of excess fat and skin that they have not been able to lose through diet and exercise. Your surgeon will talk with you to discuss the possibility of using this procedure, which doctors are calling "Game Changing."
What to Expect
BodyTite is a safe and effective minimally invasive procedure, where a wand is inserted under the skin to melt fat inside, while tightening the skin on top. Patients can be assured of a minimally invasive aesthetic procedure with decreased pain, swelling and downtime. There are built-in safeguards that allow the real-time monitoring of skin temperature, impedance levels, energy and cut-off levels. One treatment is needed and results can be seen immediately and continue to improve up to three to six months following the procedure.
