Liposuction for the Face

Face liposuction permanently removes excess fat and defines the facial contours to give the face a leaner appearance without undergoing a full facelift.

Before deciding on cosmetic surgery, it's important to have realistic expectations about the outcome. Talk to your cosmetic doctor about what to expect from the surgery and make sure you understand your recovery time and the likely results.

The liposuction procedure can also include areas of the neck, jowls and sides of the chin. Once the fat is removed, the skin retracts and tightens over time. Although some patients can expect to see some difference immediately, the full result will be visible after the swelling decreases in a couple of weeks.

It is an outpatient procedure that typically takes one to two hours to complete, so you can go home the same day.

Facial liposuction primarily targets excess fat, not wrinkles. It can be coupled with procedures like wrinkle-reducing injections, collagen induction, and others, customized based on the patient's objectives, with utmost priority given to the patient's safety and well-being.

The Procedure

Your practitioner will first mark your cheeks' treatment area with a pen, then give you a local anaesthetic. In some cases, a general anaesthetic may be provided to put you to sleep for the duration of the procedure.

Once the anaesthetic takes effect, tiny incisions are made, and a small suction device attached to a cannula is used to remove the fat from your cheeks. Typically the cosmetic practitioner will use a special technique to break up the fat cells and make them easier to extract. Common techniques include injecting a special Tumescent solution or using Ultrasound or energy from a Laser.

The excess fat can be redistributed to the cheeks or lips depending on the look you hope to achieve.

Recovery Time

Anticipate noticeable swelling and discomfort during the initial week following the facial liposuction procedure. These effects can be alleviated with the use of over-the-counter pain medications.

The full recovery time is normally two to three weeks, and this is where you will see the finished result.

To aid recovery, we provide a compression garment covering areas of the head, neck and jaw.
