Facial Liposuction

What is Facial Liposuction?

Facial liposuction is designed to resculpt the cheeks, chin, jawline and neck, resulting in a more youthful facial contour and more attractive profile.

A small incision is made in an inconspicuous location on the face or neck. An instrument called a cannula is then attached to a suction machine and inserted into the small incision to gently extract the unwanted fatty deposits. One or two stitches may be needed to close the tiny incisions.

What will My Recovery be Like?

An elastic dressing will be worn for a few days following surgery and you may be advised to wear it at night for up to two weeks. Some bruising and swelling may occur. Ice packs and mild pain relievers may be needed for a few days.
