As we age, many see their skin start to wrinkle and sag on their face and body. While a natural sign of aging, this can often lead to self-consciousness in men and women. BodyTite is a minimally invasive, scarless body contouring and skin tightening procedure that uses radiofrequency-assisted liposuction to firm the skin for a more youthful appearance. Plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Koch offers BodyTite at his New York office to help his patients feel more confident in their own skin and reflect their inner beauty on the outside.

"Dr. Koch performed a tummy tuck reversion surgery for me yesterday and I am very satisfied with the result. He is an exceptionally talented and caring doctor. I highly recommend him to everyone!"- R.I. / Google / Apr 22, 2022
"I met Dr. Koch after a tragic rock climbing fall that resulted in 10 surgeries over a 3 week period. Dr. Koch was kind and caring; an incredibly empathetic listener. Understanding my need to return to sport he used his microvascular skills to cover the dead tissue area with a fee flap that healed functionally and beautifully. For a woman who was once asked to consider amputation, I am proud to say that I have both legs and am once again climbing. Dr. Koch is a rare breed of surgeon whose caring is matched with his talent. How lucky I am."- K.Y. / Google / Mar 09, 2022
"I was referred to Dr. Koch for reconstruction (reduction and lift) from my breast surgeon. I had met with several plastic surgeons only to leave the consults feeling unsure and uncomfortable. From the moment I met Dr. Koch I knew he was the 'ONE'. In our first meeting, he gave me a sense of ease and I had a definite sense that he not only understood my concerns but also listened. During the consult, he began to draw on paper the way he would approach my surgery. I was in awe as before me the blank piece of paper he used, was literally transformed into a piece of Art. He cared enough to take the time to draw in detail explaining his methodology specific to me, My body. It was then that I understood he was a cut above all the rest and that I knew he would be my plastic surgeon. I rave about Dr. Koch to everyone and yes, I even show his magnificent work to those who ask. I am literally thrilled and beyond happy with the way my breast look and feel. I no longer have terrible back pain and can fit into blouses without feeling top heavy. As for Post-op I had no issues and on a scale of 1 - 10 my pain level was - Drumroll please -- a ... Zero. Yes, you heard me right, a Zero. - DISCLAIMER - this may just be specific to me but I had absolutely no pain from my surgery. Of course, I would like to attribute this to Dr. Koch and his skillful workmanship but again, everyone is different. Discomfort yes, as I could only sleep on my back etc. but other than that, I felt nothing. I was happy with the follow up office visits and left feeling informed and understanding what to expect regarding my recovery. Dr. Koch is the next best thing to G-d's gift when it comes to women making a woman feel beautiful. I will forever be grateful and appreciative for his masterful and skilled workmanship. Thank you for making me feel and look beautiful! Ruth Clark"- R.C. / Google / Jan 14, 2022
"Look no further!! Dr. Koch & his entire team are outstanding! I am so grateful I found them! Starting with his administrative staff (Kristin & Alicia) both exceptional young women who were so kind, caring, capable & always helpful! I appreciated their attention to details, follow-up, and professionalism. It helped to alleviate my anxiety & me wondering if everything would work out administratively and it could not have gone any smoother! Dr. Koch is fantastic! When I met him, he immediately put me at ease. When I spoke, I felt he really listened to my concerns & treated me respectfully. He was kind, patient and caring. I was impressed with his expertise & knowledge in my specific area of need. After the consult, I just "KNEW" he was the one and felt completely at peace. Thank you ALL (including all the nurses and even the anesthesiologist at the hospital in Cortlandt Manor) once again for taking such excellent care of me. Thank you Dr. Koch for having a wonderful demeanor & so skillful at what you do. I am so grateful & feel so blessed. Many blessings to you all!"- T.W. / Google / Nov 05, 2021
If you're considering receiving BodyTite, you're likely looking for a noninvasive way to correct sagging skin or stubborn areas of fat on your body. Ideal candidates for BodyTite are those close to their ideal body weight, are in good health, and have discreet pockets of fat that are resistant to exercise and diet, and sagging skin. Weight changes, aging, pregnancy, and heredity all contribute to sagging skin.
BodyTite is radiofrequency-assisted lipolysis (RFAL), a state-of-the-art technology that simultaneously liquefies and gently removes targeted fat, coagulates blood vessels, and tightens the skin.RFAL energy is applied under and above the skin to gently melt the fat and heat the skin and supporting structures. The thermal energy safely molds, contours and tightens, in a minimally invasive manner, with consistent results. Many individuals like to combine these treatments with nonsurgical skin tightening using our cutting-edge Morpheus8™ device to improve their outcomes dramatically. If this is something you're interested in, you can discuss it with Dr. Koch during your consultation.
What to Expect
After your BodyTite procedure, you should rest at home for about 5 – 10 days. Dr. Koch will likely suggest a compression garment be worn on the treated areas to encourage healing while also holding your new body shape. Some results will be visible instantly; however, your final results won't be apparent after about 3 – 6 months after your treatment, as the swelling will take time to subside. It's important to remember that even though the fat removed during a BodyTite procedure cannot grow back, the remaining fat may become more prominent if you gain weight. It is essential to maintain a healthy, steady weight after your BodyTite treatment.
