Facial Liposuction is used to remove the excess fatty tissue that gathers in the face as a result of aging or weight gain. This procedure can dramatically reduce jowls, double chin and help to minimize sagging skin on the face and neck. Facial Liposuction can be done as a primary procedure or combines with another cosmetic process to help you achieve a naturally younger appearance.
Just as pockets of fat can accumulate throughout the body, they can also deposit in places that are harder to conceal, such as the cheeks, chin, or neck. Facial liposuction can help Tampa, Florida women and men remove this unwanted fat. Removing this excess fat can lead to a more refined and appealing profile by improving the angle between the chin and neck.
Like any other liposuction procedure it is important for the potential candidate to be in good physical health to accommodate optimal healing conditions. In addition, many doctors require that candidates be physically fit and within 30% of their recommended ideal weight. Not only does this increase the likelihood of good physical health but it also helps ensure that the visual result will be proportionate with the rest of the body. Facial liposuction is a permanent way to reduce fatty tissue in the facial area whether created by age and gravity or by weight gain.
According to Dr. Dominic Castellano, a board certified, facial plastic surgeon in Tampa, facial elasticity is also an important factor when determining a potential candidate’s likelihood for success with facial liposuction. Not only does elasticity speak to the skin’s general health but it gives a fairly good idea of how it will respond to the surgery and accommodate for healing during the recovery time. Skin with very little elasticity, usually in older patients or those in poor health, may interfere with the healing process and impact the desired results. Of course, a neck or facelift can be combined with liposuction to help tighten the facial tissue after excess fat is removed.
Potential candidates for this procedure often express concern about issues such as sagging jowls or oversized cheeks, and will view the procedure as a part of an overall shift toward a more slender look to the face and neck.
