If you want to turn back the clock ten years or more, nothing beats the age-defying benefits of a facelift. But if you’re not up for a facelift or need less rejuvenation than the dramatic benefits they provide, there are a number of other effective options.
For example, have you heard about FaceTite? FDA-cleared FaceTite is a form of radio-frequency assisted lipolysis (RFAL) that helps to reduce fat and tighten skin on the face and other small areas of the body. FaceTite combines liposuction with radiofrequency energy to deliver more immediate and dramatic results than non-invasive fat reduction or skin tightening treatments. FaceTite also involves manageable downtime. Many patients are able to return to their normal schedules (while taking it easy) within a day or two following their treatment. Your downtime will depend on your specific procedure, of course. But we will be able to help you understand the exact particulars of your treatment during your consultation so you know exactly what to expect.
Is FaceTite right for you?
Do you have jowls or sagging, crepey skin on your neck? If so, FaceTite may be an ideal option for you! FaceTite is superb at providing dramatic rejuvenation to the lower half of the face and neck. FaceTite first administers RFAL to targeted areas to liquefy fat before its removal. FaceTite then targets the surrounding skin with RFAL to trigger a tightening response, revealing slimmer, smoother, and tighter skin.
Many patients who undergo FaceTite for a specific area of the face, such as the jowls, report that they are amazed how good they feel even after only a day or two following their procedure. Within a week, most patients are able to resume their regular schedule, within reason. For all liposuction patients, we advise 6 to 8 weeks without excessive exercise or heavy lifting.
Other options for looking younger
If you desire rejuvenation around your forehead or brows, you may benefit from a forehead lift or brow lift instead. Many patients get optimal results by combining non-surgical skin rejuvenation and body contouring surgery. For example, our advanced skin tightening treatment, Morpheus8, combines microneedling with radiofrequency energy to tighten and smooth lax skin. This state-of-the-art skin tightening tool is effective on its own or the perfect complement to other treatments. We can help you determine the procedures that best suit your goals during your surgical consult. Drs. Gregory Baum and Anthony Deboni are board-certified plastic surgeons who offer decades of combined surgical expertise to help you achieve the most flattering and natural-looking rejuvenation possible.
