Excess fat on the lower face, including a double chin/neck, can age you beyond your years. To remove this stubborn fat, people are increasingly opting for facial liposuction. Combined with a facelift, neck tightening, or interlocking neck sling, this liposculpture can make your face appear more lean and slender, returning sharper contours and definition.
Facial liposuction has become a common cosmetic procedure, either on its own or in conjunction with a facelift and other facial procedures. It consists of the removal of unwanted fatty tissue with a cannula and vacuum device, or sometimes using a laser lipolysis approach, promoting and improving the face’s shape, including the jaw line.
Half an hour to one hour approximately.
Depending on the patient, intravenous sedation, local or general anesthesia can be used.
POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECTS
Swelling, soreness, and a tiporary burning sensation are usually experienced in worked on areas. Perfectly controllable with outpatient treatment.
Infection, asymmetry of the face, pigmentation changes (hyper or hypo) and decreased sensibility of the worked on areas.
Full recovery time is between twenty to twenty-eight days, during which the patient will be asked to wear a compression garment.
The procedure achieves good results in patients with excess fat along the jowl and in the neck, good skin elasticity, and minimal platysmal banding.
The process of aging especially on the face is very complex and individual. Facelift addresses the loosseness of the skin caused by time and gravity while facial liposculpture addresses the contour of the face and deflations. Often these two are suggested to be done together at the same time for the best and most natural results.
