Are you bothered by a double chin or jowls along the jawline, due to aging or weight fluctuations? These changes to the face can make us look older and heavier than we really are. Facial liposuction addresses these concerns to turn back the clock and enhance your facial contour.
The top aesthetic destination of the south, Carolina Facial Plastics, is led by double board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Jonathan Kulbersh. With his team of cosmetic experts, a fully accredited surgery center, and a private recovery retreat all located in the heart of SouthPark, Carolina Facial Plastics is known for
unparalleled and natural-looking results exclusively for the face.
Dr. Kulbersh uses advanced liposculpture techniques to provide you with the best results possible. He uses a special instrument, called a micro-cannula, which is much thinner than older liposuction instruments. The narrow cannula allows Dr. Kulbersh to artistically sculpt the treatment area with precision with less trauma to surrounding tissue. Dr. Kulbersh’s advanced techniques result in less downtime and scarring for his patients.
Facial liposuction effectively removes excess fat from areas on the face and neck. This procedure can eliminate signs of aging by creating a more youthful facial contour. The treatment is minimally invasive and downtime after the procedure is typically just a few days.
Chin and neck liposuction can improve your appearance by removing your double chin and jowl formation along the jawline. Facial liposuction can also improve the appearance of your face by contouring it so that it looks more youthful. The results of facial lipo will naturally change the look of your face and neck. Your friends and family will simply think you have lost a few pounds!

Patients in good overall health with fatty areas on the face that are resistant to diet and exercise are good facial liposculpture candidates. Facial liposuction is a procedure to sculpt trouble areas like the submental fat that often forms under the chin due to weight gain, genetics, or the aging process.
Dr. Kulbersh can perform liposuction procedures on the following areas on the face and neck:
- Jowl formation along the jawline
- Submental fat that creates a double chin
- Excess fat around the neck
During your consultation with Dr. Kulbersh, he will assess your face and your trouble zones to determine which areas will benefit from liposuction. His customized treatment plans ensure natural, beautiful results for all his patients.
Facial lipo is a minimally invasive procedure and is generally performed under local anesthesia. The areas of fat that you want to be removed will be isolated and then treated with anesthesia.
Dr. Kulbersh uses tiny incisions to insert the cannulas in the treatment area, which are typically too small to leave much visible scarring behind. He then uses the cannula and suction to gently remove the excess fat.
While some patients elect to have facial liposuction as a stand-alone procedure, others choose to have it performed in conjunction with other facial plastic surgery procedures. Dr. Kulbersh commonly performs facial liposuction in conjunction with a facelift or facial implants to further enhance your results.
Recovery from facial liposuction is relatively minimal. You will wear a snug elastic dressing over the treated area for a few days and possibly at night for a few more weeks. You will need to ice your face for a few days to alleviate pain, bruising, and swelling. Most patients return to their normal daily activities 2-4 days after the procedure.
