Loose skin and subcutaneous fat can affect your body shape. Diet and exercise alone are not always effective for targeting specific areas that need fat loss or skin tightening. While there are plastic surgery options that can remove fat or tighten the skin, not everyone needs an invasive body contouring procedure. Maia Plastic Surgery offers minimally invasive body contouring with BodyTite at our facility in the Washington, D.C., and Tysons Corner, VA, metro area.

Minimally Invasive Body Contouring with BodyTite

BodyTite by InMode is a body contouring procedure that is completed using radiofrequency thermal energy to affect the various layers of skin and the fat underneath. The thermal energy helps liquefy excess fat while lifting and tightening the skin. This combines fat removal with skin tightening in one procedure, which is ideal for those with some skin laxity who want to use liposculpture to reshape their body.

BodyTite body contouring can be used for targeted areas to shrink, sculpt and tighten the skin and tissue. Common areas treated include the upper arms, abdomen, thighs and hips. This is a much less invasive procedure compared to traditional liposuction or incisional lift and tightening surgery.

Body Sculpting and Skin Remodeling

The BodyTite procedure can be performed with local anesthesia, which is a safer option for patients. A small incision is made in the treatment area to insert the radiofrequency probe under the skin. There is also a wand above the skin, relaying RF energy. The probe delivers heat to the fatty tissue while the wand uses RF energy to tighten and remodel the skin. Once the fatty tissue is liquefied, a small cannula is inserted into the incision to suction out the fat cells.

The recovery and downtime after a BodyTite procedure are minimal compared to more invasive body contouring surgery. The incision and scar are almost invisible once they heal. The benefits are incredible as the increased collagen in the skin tightens and firms to the contoured body part over the months following the procedure.

Dr. Maia and her staff are incredibly professional and truly empathetic. They’ve done a beautiful job with the treatments that I’ve gotten and I look forward to coming to the office every single time.

Dr. Maia deserves more than 5-stars! I’m thrilled with my results and I’m less than 3 months post surgery. Dr. Maia is confident and kind, and not at all pushy like other plastic surgeons. I was overly impressed the morning of the procedure. The surgical and hospital staff know her well! They were ready for her and put me at ease while I was getting settled in the OR. I appreciate the team in Dr. Maia’s office for their patience and care. They are just as calm as Dr. Maia.

Mid 40s male who’s always had nasal breathing issues and a dorsal bump. I finally decided to do something about it with a septoplasty/rhinoplasty combo. I met with a few doctors but Dr. Maia stood out. She instilled confidence, and I’m extremely pleased with the results. The surgery was straight forward, and the swelling was surprisingly light. A week later the cast was off and I was on the short road to recovery. Honestly, if I had known it was this easy I would have done it earlier. Thanks Dr. Maia!


I recently had Dysport injected by NP Kristina, and I could not be happier with the outcome. I can already see some of the results few days post-injections! I love how quickly Dysport softens the wrinkles, without giving you the "frozen look". Just in time for the upcoming holidays! Earlier this year, I did 3 Morpheus-8 treatments to my face and neck, and I am CONSTANTLY being complimented on how good my skin looks. Worth every penny! I also had fillers injected by Dr. Maia and Kristina. Dr. Maia did my under-eye, which I am obsessed about... what a change! Kristina injected my lips, chin, jawline, and cheeks. My face looks more proportional and guess what.... I FINALLY HAVE A CHIN :) Thank you, Dr. Maia, Kristina, and the Team. You're the best. I will surely be back for more.

I had tummy tuck and muscle repair with Dr. Maia 3 months ago. I couldn't be happier. I am 44 and I got my 25 year old body back after tummy tuck with Dr. Maia. The initial consult was great. The surgery was fast. The post op care was excellent. Dr. Maia and team assured me that I had great post recovery and everything going okay. I had no complication whatsoever. The incission was very small and low which I love. She is amazing and caring surgeon. He teams are very responsive and wonderful. I am very happy with the result and everything.
