- Jowls, double chin, and "turkey neck"
- Upper arms
- Abdomen, waist, and flanks
- Male chest/breasts
- Inner and outer thighs
- Bra fat
BodyTite PRO and FaceTite shape, tighten, and lift all of these areas without a scalpel or a scar.

Your BodyTite PRO or FaceTite Procedure
The BodyTite PRO and FaceTite treatments can be performed under local anesthesia or light sedation in our Cypress facility. Your treatment area will be cleansed and marked as part of your preparation for the procedure. Dr. Basu will select either the FaceTite or the BodyTite PRO applicator, depending on the treatment area.
A small opening is made in the skin for the radiofrequency wand which is eased beneath the skin in the treatment area. The skin is "sandwiched" between this wand and the external radiofrequency transmitter, so the tissue is heated from both the inside and the outside. Dr. Basu will gently pass the instrument over (and through) the tissues in the treatment area to both melt the fat and tighten the skin. A typical treatment takes 15 to 60 minutes.
Because Dr. Basu offers the new, 40-watt BodyTite PRO technology, his patients enjoy almost 50% shorter treatment times and enhanced comfort. Since this upgraded technology offers variable power and speed, Dr. Basu can further customize treatments for his patients.
Your Recovery & Results
You will be discharged after your treatment, and you can go home and return to most routine activities. As you recover from your procedure, Dr. Basu asks you to wear a compression garment full time for a few days, then only at night for approximately 2 weeks. This helps with optimal healing and shaping the new contours of your face or body.
One of the top concerns Dr. Basu hears from patients is how much pain is involved with this—or any—procedure. The answer is highly dependent on the extent of the treatment and the individual’s pain threshold.
Most patients report swelling, some bruising, and soreness in the treatment areas for a few days after treatment. The discomfort is often compared to the muscle soreness after a tough workout. By most accounts, the recovery is more comfortable than that of liposuction.
Results are immediate, but full results emerge over the course of up to 6 months. Most patients only require one treatment.
