Many of us store more fat in particular areas of our bodies than in others due to genetics. This includes the facial regions. But thanks to advances in liposuction technology, you can permanently improve the look of your face and get rid of excess fat with just one quick facial liposuction procedure.
It is possible to have extra fat on the face without being obese. Even those who are naturally thin have been known to develop full jowls, double chins, and chubby cheeks. Often, facial liposuction is the only option for these people to smooth out and contour their faces because exercise and diet don't work to reduce facial fat in them.
The Ideal Candidates for Facial Liposuction
The best candidates for liposuction are those who are unhappy with the fullness of their face but are unable to reduce the fat through diet and exercise because they are already at an ideal weight. When facial liposuction is combined with another cosmetic procedure, such as a facelift, excellent results can still be obtained. However, surgeons prefer that you have good skin elasticity before having the procedure. Skin elasticity is significant because it maximizes outcomes. Important factors include people who are in good health and who have reasonable expectations for the results of their liposuction procedure.
Liposuction of the Face
The surgeon will make the necessary incisions on your face after preparing it for facial liposuction. A tiny tube is then inserted. By sucking fat from the area through the tiny tubing, the surgeon then starts contouring the face. After achieving the desired contouring, the surgeon removes the tube, stitches or surgical glues the wounds, and then wraps each one in sterile gauze.
After surgery, patients are typically given an elastic band to wear at home for about two weeks. In order to lessen pain following the procedure, patients are frequently advised to apply ice and take Tylenol. After facial liposuction, many patients are able to resume their jobs and regular daily activities within one week.
The majority of people only need facial liposuction once. This is due to the fact that during fat removal surgery, the fat cells are removed, making it impossible for fat to be stored there in the future.
