Dramatic results with no scalpel and without the scarring of traditional face and body contouring surgery!
With FaceTite™, we can now deliver significant improvement in the lower face and neck patients without surgery and without the incisions necessary in a surgical facelift.
The procedure is ideal for those who are looking to remove localized excess fat and tighten or lift the skin to avoid loose and saggy skin.
Any area on the body can be treated including face, neck, abdomen, arms, inner thighs, outer thighs, knees, back, bra roll, hips, flanks, and buttocks and breasts.
This minimally invasive procedure is performed under local anesthesia, with sedation, or under general anesthesia depending on patient safety and preference.
The expected downtime is 1-3 days depending on the number of areas treated and location of treated area. As with traditional liposuction, a compression garment is worn for two to three weeks. The best results are noticeable after 12 weeks to six months.
The time taken for the procedure will depend upon the size of the area and indication being treated but will generally take between 30 minutes and 2 hours.
Patients can expect to go home and resume regular activities shortly after the procedure. We advise no aggressive workouts for two weeks, but normal activity and walking are encouraged. We ask our patients to wear a compression garment post-procedure for best results. The repair and healing go on for three to six months and contour will continue to improve overtime. Patients may experience swelling, bruising and numbness immediately after, but this will resolve.
Even though it is minimally invasive, it is still invasive and strict sterile techniques must be observed. A narrow wand is inserted through a needle hole in the skin to melt fat, tighten skin, and tighten the fibers underneath the skin to reduce sagging, leaving smoother, tighter skin. It can be done under local anesthesia, light sedation or general anesthesia. BodyTite™/FaceTite™ RFAL may be combined with other surgical procedures, and in that case, it is usually performed under general anesthesia.
Nothing can be guaranteed but results are expected to last at least five years. For comparison, a facelift is said to last 7 to 10 years. BodyTite™ does not prevent further weight loss.
Temporary discomfort, swelling, and bruising are to be expected. Sometimes, prolonged redness may occur. Uneven skin for approximately two to three weeks following treatment may occur. In very rare cases following FaceTite™, temporary facial nerve weakness is observed. Treatment of the male neck may result in patchy beard loss in the treated area. The doctor will discuss in detail other risks and side effects.
This is one of the key advantages of BodyTite™ and FaceTite: The procedure time is usually short. There’s no incision or skin flaps. Since it is minimally invasive, there is little risk of infection.
BodyTite™ and FaceTite™ can be, and frequently are, combined with other conventional surgical procedures such as breast augmentation, liposuction, or eyelid surgery.
Cost will vary depending on the size and number of areas treated. Especially when compared with a facelift or tummy tuck, it is very cost effective.
