If you notice increased skin laxity, excess facial fat, or loss of volume in your face, that can be due to genetics or the natural aging process. It’s disheartening when you feel young at heart, but your youthful spirit is not reflected on your face! Facelift and FaceTite are two procedures that will give you a more youthful, lifted, and rested appearance.

Let’s dive into these treatments so you can choose the best one for your facial goals.

What You Need To Know About Facelift Surgery

A facelift is for anyone with sagging skin, volume loss, excess facial or neck fat, or a slackening jawline. During the procedure, your plastic surgeon will tighten the tissue and muscles in your face and neck and remove excess skin and fat for a more balanced look. The facial skin is then redraped over your new contours for a more lifted and youthful appearance.

A traditional facelift is typically performed under general anesthesia and can take several hours. For those seeking a less invasive procedure, I developed the Rejuvelift™ to address concerns in the lower third of the face. Rejuvelift is performed in my office under local anesthesia and requires a shorter recovery period.

What You Need To Know About FaceTite

FaceTite is a facial rejuvenation treatment that specifically focuses on tightening the skin on the lower jaw and neck, as well as defining the jawline. This procedure delivers radiofrequency energy to the surface and underneath the skin to heat the tissue, causing it to retract and tauten.

FaceTite is a minimally invasive procedure with less downtime than a facelift. The best candidates for the procedure are men and women with mild to moderate skin laxity who want subtle results.

Is Facelift or FaceTite Best for You?

When choosing between the two procedures, consider your facial concerns and desired results. A facelift is better for someone with significant skin laxity who wants to address the deeper structures of the face and desires long-term results. If you only want to improve moderate skin laxity and tone your lower face, FaceTite will work best for you.

If you choose FaceTite for facial rejuvenation but still want to restore volume to your face, consider combining dermal fillers or fat transfer with your procedure. A facelift also pairs well with these procedures to add volume to the undereye area, cheeks, temples, and other areas that have lost youthful-looking fullness.

Facelift surgery, Rejuvelift, and FaceTite are excellent options depending on your individual needs. I have helped many men and women look more youthful with these procedures. You can see some of my patients’ FaceTite before and after photos and Rejuvelift results in my photo gallery.
