Learn More About Minimally Invasive Facelift & Neck Lift Surgery
New and exciting to the Tampa Bay area: a minimally invasive outpatient procedure to recontour the face and neck without excisional surgery. In Mode radiofrequency assisted Lipolysis (RFAL) tightening of the facial tissues provides a significant and long-lasting aesthetic improvement with a single treatment.
RFAL is a cutting-edge facial contouring and skin tightening office-based solution which combines minimal downtime with proven results. Utilizing computer modulated radiofrequency energy, it effectively shapes and lifts problem areas such as hanging jowls and sagging necks without the need for extensive surgery or general anesthesia. The typical out-patient procedure takes less than two hours. Studies have shown approximately 40% degree of skin retraction, meaning the results are similar to that attained with a so-called Mini Lift. Additionally, the results continue to improve over time achieving the full visible effect over several months
For both men and women, this is a revolutionary alternative to the traditional surgical facelift. While there have been many skin-tightening modalities in the past, Facetite is the first to show real results. The radiofrequency energy heats the tissues just below the skin to effectively shrink the underlying fibrous septa and fascia. This dramatically tightens the jawline, jowls, and neck. Best of all, the remodeling actually continues to improve over the next several months. Facetite offers facial rejuvenation and effective results without the scalpel or scars.
Experienced surgeons in Europe claim that Facetite results last anywhere between 5-8 years. Results are very age-dependent and the quality and elasticity of the skin varies greatly between individuals. For selected patients with excessively loose skin, we offer tissue reinforcement with suture suspension. These absorbable threads create an immediate visible improvement while the surrounding skin continues to tighten.
For both men and women, ideal candidates are in their 30s to 60s with minimal to moderate looseness and redundancy of their jawline and upper neck. However, we have performed this procedure on both younger and older patients who have similar issues. The addition of the Thread Lift has made virtually any individual a candidate for Facetite.

The procedure is virtually painless and may last from one to three hours depending on your choice of complimentary treatments, including suture suspension, fat grafting, and skin resurfacing. Once completed you will need someone to drive you home.
