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. KlausnerMD is amazing, I’m a middle age woman and I had a few procedures done with her. I wanted to look as natural as possible. Dr. Klausner took her time, and listened....given my skin complexion ( I’m prone to keloids) we worked together regarding what would be my best options. Each procedure produced gratifying results, and I still remained looking like myself. Dr. Klausner makes you feel comfortable and assured...her service is exceptional."- L.M. / Google / Mar 15, 2021
"Dr. Klausner was extremely kind and helpful during our visits, and took the time to answer all of my questions and listen to my concerns. She ran through our plan for surgery in detail, leaving me feeling safe and well assured. It was my first time having surgery and I felt completely comfortable the entire time, which eased my anxiety. I would definitely recommend her!!"- Z.V. / Google / Mar 15, 2021
"Dr. Klausner is an amazing doctor/surgeon. She takes time with her patients, listens, makes sure she explains everything in detail, follows up quickly, and is overall amazing at what she does. Her diagnosis was beyond accurate and I didn't even notice I had breathing issues until she brought it up to me. The surgery went well, I had minimal bruising, and my follow-up appointments have been great. I'd recommend her to anybody!"- M.H. / Google / Dec 15, 2020
"Lee Ann is kind, thoughtful, empathetic and ultimately the best doctor I've ever worked with. I came to her after a 10 year search for a practitioner that could also dual as a healer for an issue I had suffered with, being a perforated septum due to a previous invasive surgery that had gotten larger over time. I had seen many ENT's throughout this search, most with doubts they could help my condition, all with little to no suggestion of ways to alleviate my discomfort. Throughout the entire process with Lee Ann my concerns were not only alleviated, but she did so thoughtfully and honestly. I was given a regiment that subdued the affects of my condition almost immediately, and over time I came to trust her ability to heal me. In July 2020 I underwent septal perforation surgery which was intense and deeply transformational. I was not aware of how much I was suffering until I came out the other side. Now I would recommend her to anyone seeking any type of reconstructive surgery, because it takes someone unique with brilliant character to hold space for your healing every step of the way. Even through the COVID19 crisis, Lee Ann gave me the most unique and heartfelt experience that has ultimately changed my life and the way I view myself. I no longer think about my past condition on an hour to hour basis, and I feel full and complete as if I hadn't been suffering for how long I had. To say I appreciate her is a great understatement. I absolutely suggest a consultation with her if you are looking for a healer in human form."- M. / Google / Dec 15, 2020
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.
