Experienced, Innovative & Committed
to Provide You the Personal Care You Deserve
Your face is an especially personal part of your identity. As you age, you may start to feel like the person staring back in the mirror doesn’t look like you anymore. Loose, sagging skin can add years to your appearance and give your face an exhausted look that doesn’t match how you feel. Using state-of-the-art technology, FaceTite can melt away extra facial fat and tighten skin to help reduce the signs of aging with less downtime than a surgical facelift.
Austin plastic surgeon Dr. David Dellinger is double board certified in both plastic/reconstructive and general surgery, and has extensive experience in performing facial rejuvenation procedures over his 20 years in practice. The Elysian Plastic Surgery team works closely with men and women in Austin and throughout Texas who are interested in looking naturally refreshed with the help of minimally invasive FaceTite technology.
Contact us online or call our Austin office at 512-229-1978 to learn more about FaceTite for facial rejuvenation.
The best candidates for FaceTite are healthy men and women who have a mild to moderate amount of excess skin and some underlying fat. You should also have realistic expectations. FaceTite may produce surgical results without the scars or recovery time of a surgical facelift.*
FaceTite works best on the lower part of your face and neck. FaceTite treatments can tighten and smooth the skin around your mouth, cheeks, chin, neck and jowls. If you’re concerned about loose skin and wrinkles in the upper part of your face, Dr. Dellinger may suggest adding a brow lift or eyelid surgery. A neck lift may be a more effective treatment than FaceTite if you have severe sagging skin in your neck.*
Before your FaceTite procedure begins, you will have the option of taking something for anxiety or a mild pain medication to ensure your comfort. Dr. Dellinger and his staff will numb the treatment area before using FaceTite’s RF technology to selectively heat your skin and fat, destroying fat cells and tightening the collagen in your skin. A tiny tube can be used to suction away the melted fat cells.*
Your FaceTite procedure may last for an hour or longer depending on how many areas you have treated. After your procedure, you will be placed in a compression garment but you won’t need any stitches and you’ll be able to go home the same day.*
After your FaceTite procedure, you should rest at home and have someone stay with you full-time for the first few days. You may feel more comfortable resting in a reclined position with your knees bent. There may be some drainage in the first 24 to 48 hours that requires new dressings a couple times a day. Stocking up on extra dressings, baby wipes and loose clothing before your procedure may make your recovery easier. *
Dellinger recommends wearing your compression garment as much as possible during the first 1 to 2 weeks, then possibly at night for another couple of weeks. You should be able to resume your normal routine within a few days but you should avoid any strenuous physical activity for a few weeks.*
You shouldn’t have any scars after your FaceTite procedure and you may see results similar to a surgical facelift. Your results should be noticeable right after your procedure and continue improving over the next few months.*
