Liposuction surgery is performed to actually remove unwanted localized deposits of fat cells from the body. Liposuction was originally designed for body contouring. Your Liposuction surgeon uses a special tube called cannula. The cannula is inserted through a tiny incision placed in an inconspicuous location on the face or neck. Using a suction syringe or pump attached to the cannula, the fat cells are extracted. The result is a re-sculpting of bulging areas into a more attractive and more youthful facial contour. In younger patients, Facial Liposuction may be done alone. In older patients, it may produce optimal results when combined with a facelift, brow lift, eyelid or nose surgery. It is often performed with the addition of chin or neck implants for better definition.

The changes following Facial liposuction can be dramatic. The use of smaller cannulas allows the fibrous connections between your skin and body to remain. These connections will contract over time. As a result, excessive neck skin folds are so rare that many patients avoid the necessity for surgical removal by having excellent results with Facial Liposuction alone.
One or two small stitches may be needed to close the tiny incisions. You will wear snug elastic dressing over the treated area for a few days, and may be advised to wear it at night for a few weeks. You will go home after the procedure and rest for at least 24 hours. Mild pain relievers may be needed along with cold packs for a few days. Most patients resume to normal activities after 2 to 4 days; it can vary from person to person.
Yes, should you gain weight after liposuction, it goes to the fat cells that remain in your body. The localized fatty deposits that existed prior to liposuction can no longer distend up out of proportion to the surrounding areas.
One procedure is usually sufficient. However, some patients require a fine- tuning procedure at a future date.
If excess fatty tissue in your face or neck is bothering you, Facial Liposuction may be your answer. Your doctor can help you determine what the best treatment will be to obtain your desired result.
