Key Benefits of Facial Powered Liposuction

Facial powered liposuction is designed to remove the excess fat around the jawline, chin and neck area to create a more attractive and balanced facial profile. In many cases, diet and exercise aren’t enough to reduce the size of fatty deposits that accumulate around the neck and chin area, so liposuction is necessary to remove the fat permanently. Facial liposuction offers several benefits for men and women of all ages. Here’s a close look at how this procedure works, and what its key benefits are:

How Facial Powered Liposuction Works

Facial liposuction is a scaled down version of the liposuction procedure used for body contouring. Liposuction is performed to remove localized fat from areas of the body that are not responding to diet, exercise or massage, and the procedure can be performed safely on even the smallest areas of the body such as the face, neck and chin areas.
With facial powered liposuction, the surgeon uses a small, high-powered cannula to gently break down and suction away the fat. The cannula is inserted into the skin through a very small incision that is made in an inconspicuous location on the face or neck. When the fat is removed, the surgeon can sculpt and manipulate the tissues around the chin and neck to create more attractive facial contours. In some cases, this procedure is performed in conjunction with a full facelift, eyelid rejuvenation surgery or a forehead lift. Some patients may opt for chin or cheek implants to achieve their ideal facial silhouette.
Facial liposuction is designed for men and women who have good skin elasticity and are in good health. It is not suitable for people with sagging skin because the skin will continue to droop once any fat is removed. The fat removal is permanent, and if the patient gains weight after the procedure, the fat will appear in different areas of the body.
In some very rare cases, a second ‘touch-up’ procedure may be necessary to achieve better results. The second procedure may be combined with skin tightening procedures or dermal fillers such as Restylane, Hydrelle or Juvederm.
