It is not easy to lose weight in your face. The chin and jaw areas are extremely resistant to the effects of diet and exercise. Facial Liposuction can create subtle improvements to these areas, achieving excellent results, with a more slender facial profile being created. Commonly treated areas include the cheeks, chin, neckline and jawline.
Liposuction is typically associated with body contouring but, the procedure is a surprisingly versatile way to remove excess fat on the face too.
What is Facial Liposuction?
Facial Liposuction is similar to liposuction on other areas of the body. The main difference is the amount of fat that is being removed. Facial Liposuction can vacuum a few ounces through very tiny incisions.
What are the benefits of Facial Liposuction?
- Small incisions. The procedure doesn’t require any extensive incision, which means there is a lower risk of infection with Facial Liposuction. As a result, you are far less likely to experience discomfort and avoid any long-term side effects from the procedure.
- A speedy recovery. Experiencing slight discomfort after the anaesthesia wears off is normal and any bruising and redness will disappear within a few weeks. The expected three to six months for complete recovery is the average time for most patients to see the full benefits of the Facial Liposuction procedure.
- Little to no scarring. There is very little scarring involved with this procedure as the liposuction cannula is so small. As Facial Liposuction can be performed in discreet areas, scars can be hidden with ease.
- Limited pain. Only a mild painkiller is required in most cases, during the recovery phases. Ice packs or a hot compress can help reduce pain from the bruises.
- After the fat removal processes you’re left with tightened and toned skin. As the dermal layer of the skin and skin tissues heal, the skin can become much more firm and resilient.
The Facial Liposuction procedure
Liposuction often takes between 1 and 2 hours. Anaesthetic fluid is placed into the chosen area and an incision, usually less than 1cm, is made overlying or close to the area where the fat needs to be removed. A cannula is then used to remove the fat. The surgeon breaks up the fat and suctions it out through the incisions. If body jet liposuction is used then the fluid is infiltrated at the same time as the fat is removed. Once the fat has been removed the small incisions are closed with dissolvable stitches and a dressing is applied.

Are Facial Liposuction results permanent?
Facial Liposuction results last a long time. Although the fat cells sucked out will never return, the fat under your chin might come back if you gain weight.
Where are the incisions made, and are there any scars?
The incisions are made within the natural folds of the face, these are usually made under the jawline or chin. Scars are usually discreet.
Is Facial Liposuction painful?
Moderate discomfort may be experienced but taking the pain medication that will be prescribed by the surgeon will help with this. The pain will vary with each person. Swelling, if it occurs, generally takes about 10 days to go down. Wearing the compression garment or bandage advised by your surgeon will help the healing process.
