Understanding the Cost of BodyTite by InMode

Cost of BodyTite by InMode

Introduction to BodyTite by InMode

Traditional liposuction offers a proven method for fat removal. Sometimes it leaves behind loose skin which may lead to a significant recovery time. BodyTite by InMode addresses these concerns with a minimally invasive approach. Its success lies in its ability to remove fat, and fix and loose skin simultaneously. This is achieved through a technology called Radio-Frequency Assisted Lipolysis (RFAL).

Radiofrequency (RF) waves increase the temperature of the underlying tissues and cause a controlled disruption within the fat cell membranes. This initiates a natural breakdown process that prepares them for removal.

BodyTite doesn’t stop at fat cell disruption. The targeted radiofrequency energy liquefies the disrupted fat cells and transforms them from a solid to a liquid state. This liquefied fat is then easily extracted through a minimally invasive cannula. RF energy also stimulates collagen production within the deeper layers of your skin. Collagen is a protein that plays a vital role in maintaining skin structure and elasticity. BodyTite helps the skin contract more effectively after fat removal by promoting collagen production, resulting in a tighter, more youthful appearance.

This synergistic approach separates BodyTite from traditional liposuction methods. BodyTite offers a more comprehensive solution for achieving a sculpted, toned physique. It does this by addressing both unwanted fat and loose skin in a single procedure

How BodyTite Works

The BodyTite device itself consists of a workstation that houses the RF generator, software, and circuit boards. Different clinic handpieces attach to this workstation, designed for specific procedures and anatomical locations. Here’s a closer look at the crucial components:

  • It has hand Pieces that come in various sizes and configurations, each suited for specific clinical applications. The internal electrode is a silicone-coated cannula with a sophisticated bullet-shaped tip. This tip facilitates tissue dissection and movement while minimizing the risk of thermal injury. The external electrode slides along the surface of the skin in tandem with the internal electrode during treatment.
  • The internal electrode releases positively charged RF current. This current flows back and forth to the negatively charged external electrode. RF energy is strongest within 1-2 cm of the internal electrode. This causes a coagulative and ablative effect on the tissue. The RF weakens as it flows outwards. This provides a sub-necrotic, non-ablative thermal stimulation to the dermis. This targeted heating disrupts fat cells, liquefies them for easier removal, and stimulates collagen production for skin tightening.
  • BodyTite prioritizes patient safety with several features:
    • Silicone coating on the internal electrode minimizes the risk of thermal injury to nearby tissues.
    • Bullet-shaped tip on the internal electrode reduces the risk of end dermal hits (thermal injury to the underside of the dermis).
    • RF energy focuses between the electrodes thus minimizing heat below the internal electrode. This helps to protect delicate structures like facial nerves.
    • Sensors monitor tissue temperature and adjust RF power to maintain a safe heating profile. This prevents overheating and potential thermal injuries.

Average Cost Range of BodyTite Procedures

The procedure costs between $2,500 to $10,000 depending on the following factors:

Average Cost Range of BodyTite Procedures

  1. Size and number of areas you want treated. Larger areas like the abdomen cost more than smaller areas such as the flanks. Treating the whole abdomen has a price range of $8,000 to $10,000. Smaller areas like the flanks might cost an average of $3,000.
  2. Experience and qualifications of the person performing the procedure. Surgeons with more experience might charge more than those who are new to the procedure.
  3. Location. The area’s cost of living has a huge effect on the cost. A facility located in high-cost metropolitan areas will likely be more expensive. Those in rural or suburban locations will likely charge less because of the cost of living.

Factors Influencing the Cost of BodyTite

There are different factors that influence the cost of a BodyTite procedure, but the average price is $3,000 to $12,000. A look at testimonials on realself will give you a general overview of the cost. Factors that influence the cost of the procedure include:

  1. Size of treatment areas. Larger treatment areas such as the abdomen cost more because they need more effort, time and materials. The average cost of such large areas is between $8,000 to $12,000. Smaller areas need less effort, time, and materials and thus cost less. The price is usually between $4,000 to $6,000.
  2. Number of treatment areas. Treating multiple areas increases the effort, time and materials needed for the procedure and thus they cost more. The price can reach $10,000.
  3. Geographical location. The cost of living has an influence over the cost. High cost of living (HCOL) areas cost more than LCOL areas. This is because of the differences in:
    1. Housing Costs.
    2. Transportation Costs.
    3. Utilities and Property Taxes/.
    4. Healthcare Costs.
    5. Consumer Services and Goods.
  4. Experience and qualifications of the person performing the procedure. Board-certified surgeons with experience charge more than new surgeons with less experience. The difference is usually between $2,000 and $4,000. Surgeons with more experience, such as those at gtaesthetic with 27 years of experience, have a proven track record and are able to mitigate risk for complications. 

Comparing BodyTite by InMode Costs with Other Procedures

Procedure Average Cost Range Additional Considerations
BodyTite by InMode $8,000 – $15,000+ Local anesthesia, shorter recovery time, skin tightening benefit.
Traditional Liposuction $4,000 – $10,000 General anesthesia, longer recovery time, no skin tightening benefit.
Laser Liposuction $4,000 – $12,000 General anesthesia, longer recovery time, potential skin tightening benefit (may vary). 

What to Expect During the BodyTite Procedure by InMode

You will have a consultation with your doctor before the procedure. In the consultation you will discuss your goals, body composition and skin quality to assess if BodyTite is suitable for your needs. The surgeon will also explain the procedure including the potential outcomes and risks. Other things to expect during the consultations are:

What to Expect During the BodyTite Procedure by InMode

  • 1. Medical Clearance.
  • 2. Medication Adjustments.

BodyTite takes about 45 minutes for each individual area. The duration depends on your body and the person performing the procedure. The total duration varies for each case. The number of treatment areas also depends on the number of treatment areas.

  1. A local anesthetic solution with tumescent solution will be injected into the targeted areas. The anesthesia will numb them and make sure there’ll be little to no discomfort throughout the procedure.
  2. The surgeon will make small incisions to create access points for the BodyTite handpiece.
  3. The internal electrode of the handpiece delivers controlled RF energy within the targeted tissue layers. This energy heats the tissue and helps to achieve fat cell liquefaction and skin tightening.
  4. A thin cannula will be inserted through the same incision to extract the liquefied fat. InMode’s BodyTite allows for fat heating, coagulation and aspiration simultaneously. There are other BodyTite systems that separate these steps for heating and suction.
  5. The surgeon will use techniques such as electrocautery to control bleeding. Once you achieve hemostasis, they will close the incision with sutures and dress with sterile dressings to promote healing and reduce swelling.

Most patients spend 1-2 days at the facility for further monitoring and management.

The surgeon will prescribe Pain medication when you’re being discharged and you’ll be given a health education as well as an appointment for the next visit.

Expect some swelling. Collagen takes a few weeks to show results therefore don’t expect to see dramatic results within the first few days. There should be visible results within 4 weeks. 

Recovery and Aftercare Costs

There are many factors that influence recovery. The most important factor is how well you follow discharge instructions. This is the normal recovery timeline:

  • First Few Days: expect some swelling, bruising, and discomfort.
  • Weeks 1-4: Wear your compression garment. The garment promotes proper healing, circulation and reduces swelling.
  • Weeks 4-8: 90% of patients have visible skin tightening results by this period.
  • Months 3-6: full tightening effects from collagen stimulation will be fully visible.

Post-treatment care includes regular follow-up appointments to check on progress.

After the procedure you’ll need compression garments which cost $50 to $250 depending on the quality and brand. Follow up appointments may also cost you but that depends on the facility.
