Facial liposuction can be performed in different areas of the face but the most usual is the one performed on the chin or the cheeks or neck to remove excess fat in those areas. The procedure is common for both men and women!
Top Method for Facial Liposuction
There are no studies showing which method is the no1 for facial liposuction. The most common methods used for facial liposuction are Tumescent, Power Assisted Liposuction, SmartLipo and Vaser Liposuction! You shouldn’t utilize another form of Ultrasonic Liposuction (apart from Vaser) because it can result in severe burns! Opting for a specific method depends on the patient’s needs and expectations. For example if a patient has loose skin he should probably opt for SmartLipo!
- There are benefits to getting facial liposuction instead of a facelift where it’s possible. The liposuction procedure is less invasive, which means that it’s safer. There are more sensitive nerve endings in your face than almost any other part of your body, so the last thing you want is damage in that area.
- Liposuction also requires only small incisions so it is less likely to leave obvious scars (if compared with alternative options) on your face where everyone can see them. These incisions are so small that they don’t even need to be closed back up with sutures.
The cost of facial liposuction varies from $2500 to $4500 according to the method you will opt for, the size of the area that is going to be treated and the popularity of the doctor you will choose!
Before and After Photos
Choosing to get facial liposuction is a decision which can have a dramatic effect on your overall appearance, arguably more so than any other liposuction procedure. The contours of your face determine recognition before anything else when people look at you and when you see yourself, so changing those contours will have a major impact on your appearance. Discuss your goals with your surgeon during your consultation to make sure you have realistic expectations and that your surgeon is clear on what you want to achieve through facial liposuction.
There are some alternatives you also may want to consider if you’re thinking of getting facial liposuction. For some people, a mini facelift may make more sense, and if the primary concern is wrinkles, you might actually be in the market for dermabrasion or a chemical peel. Oftentimes it’s a combination of procedures that will contribute to the best result—facial liposuction to remove fat, and a chemical peel or similar procedure to remove the appearance of wrinkles. Younger patients often are able to achieve the full effect with just the liposuction since their skin is more elastic. Older patients are more likely to need extra touch-up.
