Facial Liposuction

Facial liposuction removes excess fatty tissue in the face and can help tighten skin in treated areas. Facial liposuction can be used on its own or in conjunction with other plastic surgery treatments. Potential facial liposuction patients usually wish to eliminate problems such as double chins or saggy jowls, while some facial liposuction candidates are attempting to alter the overall fullness of their faces.

The surgeon performing the facial liposuction uses a special tube (cannula) inserted in an inconspicuous location on the face or neck. Facial liposuction procedures, like other liposuction procedures, use suction to remove fat from under the skin. Most facial liposuction procedures remove relatively small amounts of fat compared to other procedures, but facial liposuction can produce noticeable results with very little fat loss. The fat loss associated with facial liposuction is permanent- the body does not produce many new fat cells, so patients receiving a facial liposuction are very unlikely to regain the weight in treated areas.

The entire facial liposuction procedure usually takes under an hour, but the recovery can take longer for facial liposuction patients than for individuals who receive other liposuction treatments, due to the location of treatment. Facial liposuction patients have found that it takes a few weeks to recover fully from a facial liposuction, during which time diet may be restricted to reduce the risk of infection.

More facial liposuction information is available through qualified plastic surgeons, who may be able to help individuals investigating facial liposuction determine if this procedure is right for them.
