What is Facial Liposuction?
When aging causes excess fat to accumulate around the cheeks, jowls, or chin, facial liposuction – a minimally invasive surgical procedure – can often restore a tighter, more youthful contour to the face.
Dr. Lewis has performed numerous successful facial liposuction procedures, helping his patients turn back the clock by the removal of localized facial fat. The surgery is much like sculpting. A tube or cannula is inserted into the incisions, and a vacuum device removes the excess fatty tissue. The result is a younger-looking face and profile.
For younger patients, facial liposuction can sometimes delay the need for more invasive surgical procedures like a facelift. Older patients with more significant signs of aging may find that facial liposuction in conjunction with a facelift or neck lift will bring the best results.
You can maintain the outcome of your facial liposuction procedure by keeping your weight steady. However, the aging process continues, and you may find that a subsequent procedure is necessary in a few years.
