Reshaping and Tightening Without Surgery or Scars

No matter how much we exercise or how healthy our diet, sometimes stubborn areas of fat just won’t go away. Plus, as we age or if we lose a significant amount of weight, our skin becomes saggy and wrinkly.

But there are now minimally-invasive tools available that allow board-certified plastic surgeons to reduce your facial and body fat and tighten your skin at the same time — with less downtime and without invasive surgery or significant scarring.

Surgical results without the scars

My practice, West Georgia Center for Plastic Surgery, is the first in west Georgia to offer InMode’s FaceTite and BodyTite — safe, effective minimally-invasive procedures that reduce fat and tighten skin using radio-frequency assisted lipoplasty (RFAL™) technology — as well as a new skin remodeling and contouring solution, Morpheus8.


Morpheus8 is a new subdermal adipose remodeling device (SARD) that fractionally remodels and contours the face and body. Penetrating the deep skin and superficial fat, this leads to tightening of the facial skin and fat of the aging face or body into a more desired smooth and sleek appearance that works for all skin tones.

A deep and safe fractional treatment, Morpheus8 produces a uniform effect on all skin tones with no thermal damage to the dermis and little risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH), which sometimes happens with other resurfacing methods.

FaceTite and BodyTite

Both FaceTite and BodyTite are performed under either light sedation with local anesthesia or general anesthesia. Though minimally invasive, they produce up to a 75% improvement in skin laxity, comparable to some invasive face and body techniques but without the downtime and scars.

Treatments with this advanced technology can be precisely targeted to small areas, as well as much larger areas of the body like the abdomen, thighs or buttocks.

Where can these procedures be used?

FaceTite can be used to remove fat and tighten skin on any area of the face or neck, including the jowls and cheeks. BodyTite can be used to remove fat, as well as tighten the contour of the arms, chest, abdomen, buttocks, knees, and inner and outer thighs.

When will you see results?

Your results will be visible immediately and will continue to improve up to a year after treatment. The best results will be noticeable after about six months, and they are expected to last three to five years.

Our patients really appreciate that there is limited downtime following a FaceTite procedure. Also, very little bruising occurs, but swelling may last for several days.

The downtime after a BodyTite procedure can be as little as two or three days or up to a week, depending on how many areas of the body are treated during the same procedure. Compression garments are used for a few weeks after treatment.

Who is a good candidate for FaceTite and BodyTite?

  • Both women and men
  • Individuals who are in their late 30s to early 60s or older
  • Individuals who are in good health
  • Non-smokers
