Do you have too much facial fat? Do you have jowls or fatty deposits on your cheeks, neck or face that make you feel unattractive? Have you dieted and exercised to tone your body but found that your face still makes you look heavy? Do you have a double chin that makes you feel self-conscious? If so, facial liposuction may be the answer you have been looking for. This advanced cosmetic surgery procedure specifically targets fatty deposits on the face including double chins and jowls, to re-contour the face and bring back a look of youth and health.
Why do I have a Facial Fat?
Unfortunately the same fat that makes us look healthy in our youth can shift and sag as we get older, making us look heavier and causing our faces to droop. Young men and women in their 20’s have a smooth layer of fat under the skin that adds just enough volume to make them look healthy, vibrant and wrinkle-free. As we age, the connective tissue under the skin begins to give way and break down, allowing fat to slip. This process creates pockets of facial fat along the lower jaw, under the chin and neck that are no longer attractive or healthy-looking. Our faces lose their once toned shape and begin to look tired and old. Age is a major contributor to development of these fat pockets but it isn’t the only factor. The breakdown of collagen can also be caused by sun damage or illness. In addition, fatty deposits can be caused by rapid weight gain and loss; however pockets of facial fat generally can’t be treated with diet and exercise. Once the face has lost its youthful contours, it is nearly impossible to completely regain a youthful appearance without the help of a cosmetic surgeon.
How does Facial Liposuction work to reduce a Facial Fat?
The facial liposuction procedure is similar to regular liposuction except that it specifically targets fatty deposits on and around the face including the chin cheeks and neck. It is a highly effective way to re-contour the face and get rid of embarrassing turkey neck, jowls or double chin. A cosmetic surgeon uses the same type of cannula to perform the liposuction on the face, but the cannula is much finer and more precise. Very small, inconspicuous incisions are placed strategically in targeted areas and the cannula is moved back and forth under the skin to dislodge the fat and suction it out. Facial liposuction is an outpatient procedure that is performed most often under local anesthesia. The procedure carries little risk when performed by a qualified cosmetic surgeon and can be safely combined with other procedures like a facelift or injections to produce maximum results.
Are there other ways to remove Facial Fat or is Facial Liposuction for Me?
The best candidates for facial liposuction are men and women who are at a stable weight, are non-smokers in general good health and those who have isolated pockets of excess fat in the face, neck and chin. Facial liposuction is a safe and effective treatment for patients of all ages. It is actually safer than body liposuction because the cannula is so fine and the treatment area is so small. If you have tried firming creams, facial exercises and dieting but still have droopy cheeks and a sagging chin, facial liposuction is a solution you should consider. Dr. Castellano of Elite Facial Plastic Surgery uses facial liposuction to effectively reshape the face, restore youth in his patients and to permanently reduce stubborn subcutaneous fat that is unresponsive to diet and exercise.
