FaceTite Liposuction Little Rock
Do you want a minimally invasive procedure to tighten your face and reduce fat, all without going under the knife? FaceTite might be a good option for you! FaceTite uses radio-frequency assisted lipoplasty (RFAL) technology that heats fat and stimulates collagen growth in the fibers connecting skin and underlying tissue. The results from this treatment are not as dramatic as a facelift, but significant improvement can be seen with minimal scarring and a quicker recovery.
The skilled team at Arkansas Plastic Surgery is excited to provide this safe, gentle alternative to some surgical procedures that includes less post-operative downtime and discomfort. Dr. David Bauer is specially trained in using this revolutionary technology to ensure your recovery from the procedure is safe and quick. You receive individual attention both before and after the treatment so you feel comfortable throughout the entire process.

Frequently Asked Questions about FaceTite
What areas of the face does FaceTite treat?
Loose skin on the cheeks, jowls and neck can all be treated with FaceTite. More than one area can be treated at a time, and the procedures can also be done in conjunction with other treatments during your visit.
Am I a candidate for FaceTite?
People who are typically good candidates for FaceTite are healthy individuals, in general, with some stubborn areas of excess fat and skin on their face that they would like to tighten. People with mild to moderate skin laxity (skin that is fairly elastic due to collagen and elastin in the skin) and who have realistic expectations about the outcome of the procedure are ideal for this type of treatment.
How does FaceTite work?
FaceTite is a procedure which utilizes heat and radiofrequency energy under light sedation or general/local anesthesia. A narrow wand is inserted through a needle hole in the skin, and from there, electrodes using radiofrequency energy heat the tissue and melt the fat layer in the specific area the doctor concentrates on, all while stimulating growth of new collagen with the end goal being to tighten the look of skin.
How quickly will I see results?
Results following the FaceTite procedure are seen almost immediately. Over the next year, however, and especially starting three months following your procedure, the skin and subcutaneous fibers will continue to contract and the results will look better and better.
What is the recovery time following the FaceTite procedure like?
FaceTite is an outpatient procedure, meaning you can go home that day. While most patients can resume normal routines fairly quickly, every patient may have different recovery outcomes and experience. Possible side effects resulting from the procedure include numbness, swelling, or bruising. Downtime from FaceTite is typically 2-3 days, and upon the advice of your doctor, you may resume normal exercise routines again soon after treatment.
Does FaceTite hurt?
The FaceTite treatment not painful because light sedation from local or general anesthesia is used prior to starting the procedure. There may be post-treatment discomfort, but it is usually minor and easily managed with oral pain medication for 1-2 days..
How long do FaceTite results last?
Results following FaceTite treatment can last up to five years if the patient maintains their health and manages their weight. The normal effects of age and gravity, however, are not stopped even with treatment.
Is FaceTite safe?
Yes, FaceTite is safe. Because FaceTite is minimally invasive, it is considered to be safer than traditional surgery. There are several built-in safety features in the machine which allow Dr. Bauer to closely monitor the heat and minimize the risk of complications.
