Virtually everyone has pockets of fat that stubbornly refuse to respond to exercise of changes in diet, especially as we age. Some of the most difficult areas to lose fat is within our faces, such as under the chin. Aydin Plastic Surgery is honored to be one of the first 5 practices in Bergen County to offer FaceTite. Facetite is the most advanced facial contouring and refinement procedure to reveal a younger looking you. Facetite allows patients to avoid extensive or excisional surgery to achieves optimal skin contraction.
What is FaceTite?
FaceTite is a new procedure that is comparable to a surgical facelift, without the large scars. FaceTite provides dramatic improvement in skin laxity on the face and neck, which was previously only attainable through a surgical procedure such as a facelift. FaceTite utilizes minimally invasive radiofrequency energy to melt fat and contour skin.
FaceTite treatments are performed under local anesthesia with sedation. Once the patient has been numbed, a small hole is made in the skin at the edge of the jaw just below the ear. The incision is minimal and will not leave behind a scar after healing. A thin probe is then inserted beneath the skin to provide thermal energy to the underlying tissues of the face. The probe is capped off with a plastic tip to prevent accidental skin perforation and unnecessary damage.
After the probe has been inserted, an external electrode is placed overtop the outer skin. The probe and the electrode work in unison to create a contained thermal field that simultaneously targets the outer and inner layers of the skin for a comprehensive treatment. The FaceTite devices are slowly moved along the jawline, liquefying fat and contracting the collagen and elastin in the skin along the way.
The FaceTite system is equipped with numerous safeguards that provide active monitoring of the skin’s external and internal temperatures, ensuring the treatment is safe, precise and effective.
Is this right for me? Who is the right candidate?
FaceTite is ideal for individuals who have a mild to moderate loss of tone of the skin along the jaw border and in the neck. This manifests itself as early jowls and loss of the crisp definition of the neck.
What areas can be treated?
Any areas on the face and neck with saggy skin can be treated. This includes double chins, jowls, nasolabial folds, and other areas with deep lines and loose skin. Some of the specific areas include:
- Sagging jowls and neck skin
- Wrinkles and fine lines in the lower face
- Submental fullness beneath the chin
- Marionette lines around the mouth
- Decreased collagen and elastin production
How is this better than a Facelift?
By avoiding a facelift procedure with the large incisions, patients will benefit from reduced post-procedural swelling and discomfort. This is a less traumatic process with a natural looking final result.
How long is the procedure?
Each zone will take approximately 15 minutes of treatment. The entire procedure can take around one hour.
Is FaceTite safe?
AccuTite is completely safe and has been cleared for use by the FDA. The technology measures the temperature of your skin during treatment and will automatically shut off the radio frequency energy if it gets too hot. This means that there’s no risk of burning your skin.
What is the downtime?
Depending on the treatment area, downtime can be from 1-2 days up to 10 days.
When will I see results?
Results can be seen immediately, with best results noticeable after 6 weeks, and continuing up to 12 months.

I’m 5’4” about 135 lbs. I called the office to make an apt for liposuction on my stomach, flanks, & lower back. I was transferred to Nancy, one of Dr. Aydin’s coordinators. She was so patient & helpful answering all of my questions and accommodating my crazy work schedule to get me in as soon as possible. After going to other consultations, I scheduled my surgery before even meeting Dr. Aydin in person bc of the customer service I received, making me feel like I was in good hands. Last minute I decided to go through with a fat transfer for a BBL & now being 3 weeks post op, I’m already thrilled with the results. Dr. Aydin & Nancy we’re in constant communication with me after surgery making sure I was comfortable & I’m already feeling more confident and ready for summer in my new & improved body. Thank you Dr. Aydin! Thank you Nancy!
First off I want to express how extremely nervous I was about doing ANY kind of surgical procedure. However, all of my worries immediately went away the moment I met Dr. Aydin. He is extremely kindhearted and very professional. He addressed all of my questions and concerns and both him and his staff made me feel at ease. Even months after my procedure I sometimes contact him about questions or concerns and he responds within the day. I am very happy I decided to choose him as my doctor. I will definitely be going back in the near future!
