Facial liposuction removes fat cells and contours the remaining tissues to establish a slim, defined profile.
This procedure can be performed independently or in coordination with other cosmetic procedures.
When fat cells accumulate in the cheeks, chin, neckline, or jawline, this can make your face and neck appear puffy. Liposuction has been commonly used to remove excess fat from other areas of the body, however it is now also being used to remove fat from the face and neck as well.
Did You Know?
Fat that accumulates around the neck and face is extremely hard to get rid of. This is because it does not respond to diet and exercise the same way fat does in other areas of the body.
Remove Excess Facial Fat
Excess fat cells that accumulate in the lower face and neck can be extremely hard to get rid of. Unfortunately, these fat cells can cause the formation of a double chin, jowls, or a turkey-wattle neck. Facial liposuction removes these excess fat cells in order to reduce the appearance of these problems.
