About BodyFX and MiniFX by InMode
BodyFX and MiniFX body contouring and cellulite treatment help manage areas of unwanted, diet- and exercise-resistant fat. Clients can receive these services at the Klausner Institute in New York, NY. These areas of health are a common concern for many cosmetic surgery patients. Problems could come in the form of a post-baby “pooch” after pregnancy, areas of fat around the upper legs that won’t budge, excess fat along the hips and back, or even irregularities after body liposuction. No matter what, spot removal of fat can be tough to get rid of forever.
Liposuction has been one of the most popular and top performed cosmetic procedures for many years, and Lee Ann M. Klausner, M.D. is an expert in this branch of medicine. This procedure safely, effectively, and permanently reduces fat and refines the body contour, and reduces cellulite appearance. The BodyFX and MiniFX cellulite removal tool also can smooth out the unevenness post-body liposuction procedure to give a more finished look.
In recent years, nonsurgical or minimally invasive alternatives to liposuction have been becoming more popular. BodyFX and MiniFX noninvasive body contouring treatments don’t need an incision or anesthesia and often come with a shorter recovery time.
"Dr. Klausner is WONDERFUL (and so is her staff!) My daughter wanted a nose-job by a woman..so we interviewed several female doctors in NYC and Dr. Klausner was by far the kindest, most patient, and most thorough person we saw. We chose to go with her and the entire process was super positive - from the pre-op visits, to the surgery, to the post- op -- Dr. Klausner is wonderfully caring and invested in her patients. I highly recommend her (and plan to use her when I need some work done for myself :)"- A.P. / Google / Nov 12, 2022
"Dr. Klausner is a fantastic surgeon and I'm so glad I found her! I first saw her in 2021 for a consult and needed to take some time to think about going through with the surgery proposed (septoplasty, turbinate reduction, fracture repairs) and explore other options. I ended up going back to Dr. Klausner in 2022 because I felt she was the best out there and I needed this surgery. She is extremely detailed in her notes and explained every little detail to me, which I appreciate. Post-op she took the time to check in and make sure I was okay and even called me at night when she knew I was feeling nauseous. I also had weekly office visits to ensure I was healing properly and we’re both very happy with the results. Overall she's a compassionate and skilled doctor and I would recommend her to anyone."- J.S. / Google / Nov 11, 2022
"Juliana Longoria, an aesthetician in Dr. Klausner’s practice, is fantastic! I’ve seen her several times for dermaplaning and most recently, the Clear and Brilliant laser treatment. She is thorough, thoughtful and conscientious, taking the time to understand what I’m looking for and what I can expect with each procedure. I’m so pleased with the results and trust her with all my future skincare needs."- A.W. / Google / Aug 13, 2022

"I am so thrilled that I chose Dr. Klausner as my plastic surgeon, she is absolutely phenomenal. During my visits for both surgical and non-surgical procedures, she gave me her undivided, focused attention. She attends to the smallest of details - - which is what you want in a plastic surgeon - - and I trust her completely. She and her team have been with me every step of the way during this journey and I cannot imagine seeing any other facial plastic surgeon. I love visiting Dr. Klausner's office and seeing Melissa and Jeslyne, and I am so happy I found the Klausner Institute!"- A. / Healthgrades / Mar 13, 2022
What is BodyFX for body contouring and cellulite removal?
How does BodyFX work?
BodyFX uses a combination of different clinically proven modalities, including radiofrequency energy, deep tissue heating, and suction coupled negative pressure. The radiofrequency energy distributes heat to the skin and underlying fat, causing the tissues to heat and contract. The vacuum and controlled energy pulses then work synergistically to provide beautiful body shaping results. Results are typically in vivo a 40% fat cell reduction. Areas that typically achieve the greatest results include the legs, abdomen, back fat, and underarm. One of our patients, Susan, said, “I lost inches in my thighs, and my body looks and feels tighter. I would recommend this treatment to anyone who wants to get rid of that little extra fat they are carrying.”
How does MiniFX work and how is it different from BodyFX?
MiniFX, like BodyFX, uses a combination of different clinically proven modalities, including radiofrequency energy, deep tissue heating, and suction coupled negative pressure. The radiofrequency energy distributes heat to the skin and underlying fat, causing the tissues to heat and contract. The vacuum and controlled energy pulses then work synergistically to provide beautiful body shaping results. MiniFX is for smaller, hard-to-reach areas, like the neck, upper arms, and knees, whereas BodyFX is for larger areas, like the stomach and thighs.
How safe is BodyFX and MiniFX in removing cellulite?
A series of RF energy is delivered by a succession of pulses at one million cycles per second during BodyFX and MiniFX treatments. While this may sound intense, it is very safe. To maximize comfort, the body’s temperature will be constantly monitored with ongoing accurate feedback of the skin’s temperature. This thermal monitoring provides the utmost in temperature control.
Does it hurt?
Most users find BodyFX and MiniFX comfortable. During treatment, you can expect a warming of your skin and a gentle pulling sensation as the radiofrequency and vacuum work to smooth out unwanted stubborn pockets of fat.
How many body contouring sessions are required?
It is recommended that weekly sessions are performed over an eight-week period. Gradual improvements in the treatment area can be seen following the first few treatments with the skin’s surface feeling smoother and softer immediately. A “normal” treatment area is the size of two hands where it takes 10 – 20 minutes of treatment per focus area. If the patient has multiple areas where body contouring is wanted, multiple treatment areas can be focused on in one visit.
What kind of post-procedure care is required?
There is absolutely no downtime for BodyFX or MiniFX. It can be a lunchtime procedure. Patients will notice redness and warmth in the treated area, which will subside after a few hours. This warmth is equivalent to the sensation felt after a deep tissue massage and will not prevent anyone from their regular activities.
What causes cellulite?
The dimpled appearance of cellulite is a significant cosmetic concern for a large percentage of the population. Most cases of cellulite are caused by factors like weight gain, genetics, hormone changes, and natural age. Just because cellulite is common doesn't mean you have to live with it. Dr. Klausner can target the root cause of your cellulite to produce smoother, dimple-free skin.
How long will results last from BodyFX?
Individual results vary based on the severity of cellulite and the patient's commitment to maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Outcomes can also be reversed by future aging and lifestyle changes. That being said, it is possible for the results of BodyFX to last for years. Patients in New York are always welcome to return for additional sessions as needed.
How much does BodyFX cost?
The price of treatment depends on a number of factors, including the amount of cellulite present and how many areas are being treated at once.
