What is Facial Liposuction and Face Tite used for?
Facial liposuction is a minimally invasive procedure that most often treats the accumulation of fat on the underside of the chin and neck area. Some people naturally retain excess fat under their chin and neck due to hereditary conditions, and no amount of diet and exercise can eliminate it. Eliminating a “double-chin” is one of the most popular applications for facial liposuction, and the procedure is normally completed within an hour. The use of Face Tite with liposuction can shrink the skin, and improve the results of facial liposuction, in both younger and older patients.
How does Facial Liposuction work?
Using a tiny tube called a cannula, excess fat is suctioned from target areas to create a more contoured and toned appearance. This fat is permanently removed in one treatment.
What can I expect from Facial Liposuction?
You will be able to fully appreciate the results of your facial liposuction treatment after a day, and your bandages will be removed entirely by the third day. Scarring is minimal because the incisions used are extremely tiny and concealed beneath the chin. They eventually fade altogether. A quick recovery means you’ll be able to show off your new look within a few days. Your new look improves, even over a month and a half, as the skin contracts.
Can I combine Facial Liposuction with other treatments?
Yes. Liposuction is often used to enhance other treatments, such as a facelift, neck lift, cheek implants or face tite by further enhancing the definition and contour of the treatment area.
Are the results of Facial Liposuction permanent?
Yes. The fat cells that are extracted from the treatment area are removed permanently. Over time, as your face changes through the process of aging or weight fluctuations, you may wish to treat a different area of your face for further enhancement.
Is Facial Liposuction painful?
You may experience some initial soreness and swelling immediately following the procedure, but this will subside naturally within a few days. Over-the-counter pain medications normally alleviate any discomfort you may experience in the first few days.
