Facetite is a minimally invasive surgical procedure, which removes fat below the chin, commonly called “double chin” or “double chin”, allowing the redefinition of the contour of the neck and jaw safely and precisely. It is a technically simple procedure that does not leave scars. It is carried out through a small 3mm hole under the chin where a thin and small cannula is introduced that “suctions the fat”. When removing the accumulated fat in this area, the face becomes thinner, with more defined angles and more harmony.

With just one session it is possible to obtain results that can be seen immediately. Recovery is quick and patients can return home after the procedure. Depending on the area being treated, it may be advisable to wear a compression band for a few days.

MYTH – The post-operative period is very painful.

Although there are pains, they easily give in to prescribed painkillers.

MYTH – I’ll get scars.

As the holes themselves are small, they are also made in strategic places in order to avoid noticing the scars.

MYTH – The post-operative period requires hospitalization.

No. The patient may return home an hour or two after the operation.
