Facial liposuction is a minimally-invasive procedure designed to give you a more defined jawline and chin. Liposuction is a popular procedure among many patients and can provide long-term results with only one treatment. If you have pockets of fat that are non-responsive to diet and exercise, it may be time to enlist the help of facial liposuction.
Facial Liposuction Can Treat:
- Outer area of the cheeks
- Submental fullness (under chin)
How Does It Work?
Liposuction procedures are done on an outpatient basis in Image Surgical Arts’ state-of-the-art surgical facility. Dr. Harris will make small incisions to predetermined treatment areas before inserting a thin cannula tube and removing unwanted fat via gentle suction methods. VASER technology is used to provide even more dramatic results allowing Dr. Harris to better define the chin and jawline. Even removing just a few ounces of fat can give you an instantly thinner-looking appearance. Facial liposuction can be paired with other procedures to further enhance the outcome.
When Can I Expect to See Results?*
Initial results can be seen as soon as your facial liposuction is completed. As swelling begins to subside over the course of a couple weeks, you’ll notice continued improvements. The final results of your liposuction treatment will become evident in about a 4-6 weeks. Existing fat that is removed is not able to reform. However, it’s important to maintain healthy lifestyle habits to prolong the outcome of your procedure.
Does It Hurt?*
Facial liposuction is done with light intravenous sedation and a local anesthetic to make the procedure as comfortable as possible. Some common side effects may include slight swelling, bruising, slight temporary numbness, or mild discomfort as you heal. Any discomfort can easily be controlled with either OTC or prescription medication during this time.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Otherwise healthy adults who are having trouble losing pesky fat pockets in their face or neck may be suitable candidates for the procedure. Dr. Harris will complete a full facial analysis to determine if facial liposuction is right for you at your initial consultation. Together, you can create a plan to help you achieve your ultimate goals.
