"I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Dr. Kouris and his team! From the moment I spoke with Suzy the receptionist to book my appointment, to consulting with Nurse Sheila and Dr. George about procedure options, I felt comfortable and confident about my decision to move forward with Dr. Kouris. Dr. Kouris took his time and answered all of my questions and concerns. Dr. Kouris is a highly skilled, dedicated and caring physician who strives to do exceptional work in a safe manner. I very much appreciate Dr. Kouris!"- C. / Healthgrades / Jan 13, 2020
"I will start by mentioning that Dr. Kouris is an excellent doctor all-around. He is compassionate, very knowledgeable, extremely polite, and has a wonderful team - Sheila and Suzy are the best!I have known Dr. Kouris since 2017. I had 3 procedures - Breast reduction, Tummy Tuck and brow lift. I am 54 years old looking like i am in my 40s. I love all 3 of my procedures but my brow lift is incredibly natural. No one realizes what I had done. I am receiving compliments about how young I look. Ultimately, I believe the doctor that makes you look younger and feel extremely confident in your own skin has a magic touch! I highly recommend him to anyone who is in the search of doing any plastic surgery. Give Dr. Kouris a shot, you will not be disappointed."- M.K. / Google / Dec 27, 2019

"I recently had some elective surgery with Dr Kouris. He listened very carefully to my hopes and concerns, and we came up with a plan. I could not be more pleased with the results. I felt like I was in very capable hands with Dr Kouris, his nurse Sheila, and the whole office staff from start to finish. I will definitely recommend Dr Kouris to anyone searching for a qualified plastic surgeon."- M.S. / Google / Dec 20, 2019
"UPDATE: The clinic called me back and asked if I could come in for complementary Botox to make up for the previous problems. The appointment went well. I met with Dr. Kouris and let him know that he didn't have to completely comp the Botox but he insisted and profusely apologized. He is a nice man and he truly care about his patients and their time. Kudos to him for making things right:) I’ll start with saying that I hardly ever write a poor review. However, I am very disappointed with this clinic. I made an appointment over a month ago for the 12th of December and let the receptionist know that I would be coming in during my lunch break. She assured me that they would be able to see me in a timely manner. I was supposed to be receiving a consult for skincare as well as Botox. Eight days before my appointment, I was contacted by Dr. Kouris’ receptionist reminding me of my appointment on the 5th. I let her know that she was mistaken that my appointment was made for the 12th as my husband was out of town during the 5th and I would not have made an appointment for that day. She apologized and updated her schedule for the 12th. On the 9th I was once again contacted by the receptionist letting me know that the individual who would be assisting with the skincare consult would be out of the country on the 12th and would not be able to see me during my appointment and let me know that I would need to make another appointment to see her. I was a bit bothered by this given this was the second “mishap” with scheduling but she let me know that she would have the person give me a call the following day so I could at least speak with her. I thought it was a nice gesture, so I agreed. I was able speak with the individual but as expected, she ultimately said she would need to see me to make any definite suggestions. Well, today I showed up for my appointment at 12:00 and was given paperwork to complete. I let the receptionist know, once again, that I was on my lunch break and needed to be sure they were aware that I didn’t have much time. She let me know that she would remind the clinic team and not to worry, they would get me back in time. Well, 45 minutes later, I was still waiting to see someone from the clinic staff. I had to leave before seeing anyone. The receptionist said “Sorry, we had another patient JUST stall everything”. I told her that I was more bothered by the fact that nothing had been communicated to me than the fact that they were running behind. I was also bothered by the receptionist lack of concern that I had to leave before being seen. I would expect more than a simple “sorry”. The explanation was only given after I prompted for more information. A clinic that allows the receptionist to be the face of the organization should strive for a more sympathetic, organized, communicative, individual."- E.Z. / Google / Dec 20, 2019
A treatment with BodyTite may be helpful if you would like to see improved skin tightness and contours in one or several regions of your body. You might be a candidate for BodyTite if you would like to get rid of stubborn pockets of fat and also enhance the appearance of sagging or wrinkled skin. You might have thought about body lift surgery or traditional liposuction but would rather minimize surgical scarring and recovery time. Many regions of the body may be treated with BodyTite; however, a few of the more common areas patients want help with are the chest, arms, stomach, thighs, and knees. During your initial consultation, Dr. Kouris will pay attention to your needs and goals before helping you determine if BodyTite is best for you.
The BodyTite procedure is generally done with local anesthesia; however, general anesthesia can be used if you're nervous or getting multiple areas treated. The special BodyTite applicator is inserted via three-millimeter incisions in your skin. The applicator has an external and internal thermometer to guard you against burns. Dr. Kouris will use the applicator to liquefy and loosen the fat using radiofrequency waves so that the fat is easily removed from your body. The heat used throughout the fat elimination will tighten your connective tissue and skin for immediate improvements. BodyTite therapies usually take around 30 – 45 minutes for each area. Several treatments might be required or suggested by Dr. Kouris to provide your best outcomes.
What to Expect
You'll have to recover for 5 – 10 days following your BodyTite procedure. A compression garment needs to be worn on the treated areas to encourage healing while also holding your new body contours. Some outcomes will be visible instantly; however, your final results won't be apparent for several months when the inflammation and swelling are gone. Even though the fat that's removed can't grow back, the remaining fat cells may become bigger if you gain weight; therefore, it's important to keep a healthy, steady weight following your BodyTite procedure.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does BodyTite cost?
The cost of a BodyTite by InMode procedure can vary, according to the number of areas being treated. During your initial consultation at Kouris M.D. Cosmetic Plastic Surgery, Dr. Kouris will assess your goals and concerns and create a customized treatment plan. Once this has been created, Dr. Kouris can go over all your estimated costs and inform you of the payment methods we accept.
Should I choose BodyTite or other surgical options?
BodyTite by InMode is an ideal choice for individuals who wish to avoid lengthy recovery times, scars, and the expense of aesthetic plastic surgery. But it is important to mention that although BodyTite produces stunning results, traditional lift surgeries, including tummy tucks, arm lifts, and thigh lifts, are still the most effective method for loose skin. Liposuction remains the most effective way of eliminating excess fat. During your initial consultation, Dr. Kouris can discuss all of your options and recommend a treatment plan for you.
What is radiofrequency?
Radiofrequency (RF) is an innovative laser energy that uses electrical currents to create controlled heat through an applicator specially created by InMode. This heat is then used to carefully target and eliminate fat cells without disrupting the surrounding skin. BodyTite RF energy also helps promote collagen and elastin for tighter, healthier skin.
Is BodyTite safe?
BodyTite is a safe, FDA-approved cosmetic procedure that has become popular with both women and men. The procedure is noninvasive, and patients are able to return to their daily activities very quickly following treatment.
