Fat can accumulate all over our body, and while exercise and a healthy diet are the most effective tools for ridding the body of fat, there are some stubborn areas of our body where fat can accumulate and no matter what you do you just can’t get rid of it. Sometimes, fat deposits in places that are hard to conceal; such as the cheeks, neck, or chin. The face is an area on our bodies that we cannot exercise or tone, so what do we do to eliminate the fat that deposits there?
Dr. Dominic at Elite Facial Plastic Surgery wants you to know that there are a few options to eliminate unwanted facial fat deposits. When you remove the excess fat from the face through a face and neck liposuction procedure you will be pleasantly surprised to see a refined and appealing profile that enhances the natural contours of the face and the sexy curve of the neck.
Tampa face and neck liposuction is similar to the liposuction procedure performed elsewhere on the body except it is smaller in scale. The Tampa facial liposuction procedure is smaller in scale since the area treated is smaller and a smaller amount of facial fat is removed, usually only a few ounces. The facial liposuction in Tampa involves a small incision underneath the chin or just in front of the ear lobes. Then, a cannula (a small metal tube) is inserted into the incision to suction out the fat cells. So long as the patient maintains a healthy and normal weight, the fat cells will never regrow, making the Tampa cosmetic facial liposuction procedure permanent. If a patient gains a significant amount of weight, another facial liposuction procedure from Elite Facial Plastic Surgery may be necessary, however this is rare.
Facial liposuction from Tampa cosmetic surgeons is a safe procedure that produces dramatic results. A facial liposuction of the chin, neck and jowls can actually produce better results than an invasive Tampa facelift. Cosmetic surgeons in Tampa like Dr. Dominic believe that this facial liposuction is a more desirable option because there is minimal scarring and recovery time in comparison to other procedures. It is imperative the procedure is performed at an accredited cosmetic surgery facility since there will be some minor bruising, swelling, and bleeding at the incision point.
Once the procedure is completed and enough time has passed for recovery, patients will notice a smooth, well defined, and significantly more youthful appearance. In some cases, facial liposuction can be paired with a Tampa facelift procedure or Tampa neck lift procedure to enhance the skin tightening results. These procedures are sometimes necessary for older patients that have lost elasticity of the facial skin.
