Facial liposuction is precise fat removal from areas that can age you or weigh down your appearance.

The neck is one area that can age an otherwise youthful face and body appearance. Excess fatty deposits in the neck and under the chin can be removed very precisely and to great effect, refining and rejuvenating your appearance. Facial liposuction at the MIAMI Institute is often done at the same time as a facelift or eyelid surgery, for example, completing the desired effect of a more youthful look. It is done with delicate instruments that enable the surgeon to sculpt and contour, bringing out the natural lines of the jaw and leaving youthful volume where it belongs.

Ideal candidates include:

  • -Young patients who still have "baby fat" in and around the neck and jowls, under the chin, or in the cheeks
  • -Patients who want more definition in their neck and face
  • -Slightly overweight patients would like their faces to look leaner and more natural while they are losing body weight
  • -Patients who have lost considerable weight but who still have persistent fatty deposits in the face and neck

Facial liposuction takes about an hour and is typically performed using local anesthesia with sedation, or under general anesthesia if it is combined with other procedures. To remove fatty deposits in the neck and chin, an incision is made in a natural crease under the chin. If working on the cheeks, your surgeon will make small incisions inside the mouth.

Muscles will be tightened if needed and any excess or loose skin will be removed. The appearance of your refined facial features will improve as swelling resolves and you should be able to enjoy your new look for a very long time, particularly when a consistent skincare regimen is practiced coupled with a healthy diet and regular exercise.
