HomeFace & Neck — Liposuction

Facial liposuction is liposuction that is performed on the jawline or below to remove distinct pockets of excess fat on the face. By removing excess fat, you can enjoy a younger, more sculpted appearance, and may feel more confident in making a positive first impression.

Many of our patients enjoy their more distinct profile, youthful glow and enhanced natural beauty as a result of their facial liposuction procedure.

How is Facial Liposuction Performed?

Depending on your treatment plan, facial liposuction can be performed with sedation or general anesthesia. Liposuction is performed in many areas of the body and is a fairly straightforward procedure. The surgery requires only a small, well-hidden incision under the chin or in a natural crease at the ear. Once the incision has been made, a special suction device, known as a cannula, is inserted to remove the targeted fat.

The Procedure

Face lift surgery is often carried out in your doctor’s office, but some patients may require a hospital admission. Your doctor will advise you of the best options.

The surgery itself consists of an incision near the temple in the hairline then tracing a line in front of the ear, circling the ear lobe and behind the ear, ending again in the hairline . If the neck will be lifted as well, a small incision will also be made under the chin.

Your doctor will then tighten muscles and sagging tissue, remove excess skin and reposition the remaining skin to create a more well defined and youthful look.

The incision will be closed meticulously with sutures. Staples are generally used in the hairline, as they are less likely to cause necrosis of hair follicles.

Because no two patients are alike, each surgery will likewise be personalized to the facial and neck structure of each patient.

A face lift may be performed alone, or in conjunction with a forehead lift and/or eye lift (blepharoplasty), or nose surgery (rhinoplasty). Your surgeon may also recommend injections of Restylane.
