Do you have a bit of a double chin or turkey neck? Have you ever wished your jowls weren’t quite so saggy? You may be a candidate for facial liposuction! Facial liposuction is a minimally invasive procedure used to remove excess fatty deposits from the face and neck and sculpt the area. As a Charlotte facial plastic surgeon, I often recommend facial liposuction for my patients who are looking to contour their lower face and neck without invasive surgery.
How Does It Work?
When you have excess fat that doesn’t respond to proper diet and exercise, it can make you look older than you are. Fatty deposits in the face and neck especially can make you appear heavier than you are. Using a small instrument called a cannula, I can artistically sculpt the face and neck while removing unwanted fatty deposits. I commonly treat patients unhappy with the following problem areas:
- Sagging jowls
- Double chin / Turkey neck
- Excess fat around the neck
I generally perform minimally invasive facial liposuction with local anesthesia. Using tiny, hidden incisions, I insert the cannula into the problem areas and remove the excess fat while sculpting the area. Usually patients only need one facial liposuction session to experience desired results and the recovery period is minimal. Patients wear a dressing over the treatment area for a few days after treatment and then just at night for a few weeks after that. Full facial liposuction results are usually seen within 6-12 months.
Facial Liposuction & Cosmetic Procedures
Many patients come into my office just for facial liposuction, but others seek multiple cosmetic procedures at one time. By undergoing a couple of facial plastic surgery procedures at the same time, you only have to go through one recovery period. Facelift, neck lift, and chin augmentation are some of the procedures most commonly performed at the same time as facial liposuction.
I stress natural-looking results when performing facial liposuction and other facial plastic surgery procedures. Most patients want to look younger and well rested after a cosmetic procedure, not “worked on.” Having trained under the best facial plastic surgeons in Beverly Hills, I am well versed in providing natural-looking facial plastic surgery results.
