What is a BodyTite Liposuction?
A BodyTite liposuction procedure is designed to eliminate localized collections of unwanted fat, without the invasiveness of traditional liposuction. By utilizing a small internal electrode that releases radiofrequency energy, a fat removal liposuction procedure can heat, coagulate, and liquefy fat, thereby creating a dramatic improvement in the overall shape and contour of the body. Due to the non-invasive approach involved in a BodyTite liposuction procedure, patients can expect less bruising, swelling, and pain than with traditional liposuction.
Who is a BodyTite Liposuction Candidate?
Ideally, patients who undergo a BodyTite liposuction procedure should be between 18 and 65 years old. While there are no specific traits that dictate candidacy, proper physical health, and realistic expectations can make the recovery process more seamless. Fundamentally, a candidate for a BodyTite liposuction procedure is someone who would like to remove localized areas of excess fat that detracts from their ideal shape and contour.
Please note that if a patient is excessively overweight, they may not be good candidates for a body tite liposuction procedure with the Toronto Plastic Surgeons. We invite all those interested in this procedure to reach out to the Toronto Plastic Surgeons for a consultation.

How is a BodyTite Liposuction Performed by Dr. Mulholland and Dr. Bray?
All BodyTite liposuction procedures are performed within the comfort of the modern Toronto Plastic Surgeons Surgical suites. The surgery is entirely personalized and specifically designed by our expert team to match your desired results.
Prior to your surgery, a physician will administer anesthesia to ensure that the procedure is completely painless. During the procedure, radiofrequency energy will heat and melt the unwanted fat, sealing off vessels and causing the soft tissue to contract. Then, your BodyTite Liposuction surgeon will remove the liquified fat with a small aspirating cannula. Finally, the targeted area will be properly shaped to ensure excellent body contour.
How to Prepare for a BodyTite Liposuction
To ensure a successful surgery, the doctor will advise that you follow certain preparations in the weeks leading up to your procedure date:
- Smoking should be discontinued two weeks leading up to the procedure and two weeks after. Those who continue to smoke will have a longer recovery period and a greater likelihood of complications.
- Two weeks before your procedure, patients must cease taking Aspirin or any medication that contains Aspirin.
- Six hours prior to surgery, patients must stop consuming any food or drink. Small sips of water are permitted, however.
- Avoid sun damage two weeks before surgery. This can be achieved by wearing sunscreen.
