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.
"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
"Dr. Klausner is hands down the best! She performed a sinus surgery and straightened my septum in 2017 and I could not be happier with the result. Dr. Klausner truly listens to her patients and provides expert guidance and thorough explanations for her recommended approach. When I saw her the day following my surgery she gave me a gentle face wash all around the area and I could've cried it felt so nice. Her follow up with me was impeccable. She took great care of me through my entire recovery journey. Can not recommend Dr. Klausner enough!!"- A. / Google / Feb 25, 2022

"I met with Dr. Klausner to have a large cyst removed from the bridge of my nose in between my eyes. It had become infected and was very painful. My local ER doctor had sliced it open to drain it and I was left with a big gaping wound on my face. Needless to say, I was distraught and very self-conscious. Dr. Klausner was incredible. She inspected the prior doctor’s work and made a few careful incisions to further drain the cyst. It was clear that it was something that had been under the surface for quite a number of years and Dr. Klausner was very thorough in her inquiry and considered all possible causes. Our first consultation lasted for almost two hours. Because of the location of the cyst, she sent me to have an MRI to ensure that it was not connected to any of the bone. When the infection subsided and it was ready to be removed, Dr. Klausner patiently and carefully excised the whole thing. She has also scheduled several follow-up appointments with me to check on how I am healing. I do have a small scar, which was expected, but it it’s getting flatter and less noticeable every day. I cannot speak highly enough about my experience with Dr. Klausner. Highly recommend."- E.R. / Google / Jan 01, 2022
"So grateful that I found Dr. Klausner. She is an amazig doctor and person. After going to numerous doctors/surgeons for my large nasal perforation and saddling she was the only one who listened and diagnosed my problem. She gave me a detailed plan on how to proceed. She was very empathetic, kind and patient through the entire process. My surgery was extremely complicated but I'm happy to report a success! No other surgeon wanted to help me as they all said it was not possible to close such a large perforation. Dr. Klausner did it!!! She has truly changed my life!"- T.R. / Google / Nov 02, 2021
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.
