What is Face Liposuction?
Face liposuction is a cosmetic procedure performed as a single process with a facelift and other facial rejuvenating methods. It comprises excess fatty tissue extraction to help reshape and revitalize the face. If you care about the excess fat deposits in the cheeks or jaw line, undergoing face liposuction will significantly help.
Face Liposuction Procedure
Face liposuction is, in most cases, performed as outpatient treatment. Patients can enter the office, get the procedure the same day, and return home. The entire face liposuction procedure lasts 30 to 60 minutes.
The procedure starts with our surgeon administering a local anesthetic to help numb the patient. It will enable the patient to experience no pain during the process. The patient will only remember some things about the surgery. A professional anesthesiologist will monitor the patient before, during, and after the face liposuction procedure.
The surgeon will make a tiny incision into the submental crease. There are times when an extra laceration can be made behind the earlobe. The fat will then be suctioned using the vacuum effect of round liposuction. Our surgeon will use dissolvable sutures to help in sealing the incisions.
Reasons Why You Should Undergo Face Liposuction
Face liposuction is becoming a sought-after treatment among people of different ages, for both men and women. Here are some of the benefits face liposuction offers.
Face liposuction helps in treating unwanted fat around the jawline and chin. Losing facial fat can be difficult through exercise and diet alone. Face liposuction offers a better alternative to dealing with stubborn fat.
Face liposuction will help create facial contours that give you a younger look and more refreshed. Most patients combine face liposuction treatment with an eyelid lift, brow lift, or facelift to achieve more noticeable and dramatic results.
As with any surgery, there will need to be a recovery period. The recovery period after the liposuction procedure lasts up to six weeks.
First 72 Hours
The aftercare starts immediately after the liposuction procedure. Immediately after you return home from the liposuction procedure, you should lie down and rest. You will also have a compression garment to put on along with small drains placed at the surgical point to prevent fluid from piling up. Our surgeons always offer extensive aftercare instructions for your drain sites and incisions.
It is normal to experience mild to moderate pain and discomfort levels. You will always receive prescription drugs to help in managing the pain. In the first three days after undergoing liposuction, you will limit your movement to walking around the house and avoid lifting or stairs.
Week 1 and 2
After a few days, the pain will begin to subside, and you can move around, although the bruising and swelling will still be noticeable. You must maintain your incision sites, wear compression garments, and avoid lifting. Depending on your job type, you can start planning how to resume work after two weeks.
Week 3 to 6
After 3 or 4 weeks, there will be no more pain. Much of the swelling will also subside. You will notice the results improving, and you can walk around the neighborhood and perform some light exercise.
After six weeks, the liposuction recovery will end, and you will revert to normal activities. Our surgeons will provide each patient with a customized recovery plan during the follow-up visits.
Am I a Good Candidate for Face Liposuction?
Face liposuction works well for individuals at or near their ideal body weight and has excellent skin elasticity. Since the liposuction procedure is specifically not designed for removing excess skin, the patient’s skin needs to be able to tighten after removing the fatty deposits.
If you are unsure whether you are a good candidate for facial liposuction treatment, consider the following factors: fat pockets around the neck, good general health, and ensuring your skin is firm and elastic. You must not be under any form of medication or using a supplement. People whose neck and chin appearance affects their self-image and mental health can also undergo face liposuction. To experience a face liposuction procedure, you should be a non-smoker and within 30% of your ideal body weight.
Any ideal candidate for the face liposuction procedure should have good overall health and realistic expectations for a positive surgical outcome. Any patient with aggregate loose skin or poor skin elasticity should undergo a mini facelift or a neck lift. The face liposuction procedure will allow the removal of subplatysmal fat, repositioning, and excision of facial tissues and lax neck for a rejuvenation appearance.
Our surgeon will carefully examine your neckline and other aesthetics during the consultation. After going through your medical history and surgery reasons, the surgeon can formulate a treatment plan to help you achieve your cosmetic goals.
