While liposuction is most associated with body contouring techniques to sculpt regions such as the abdomen, thighs, arms, and buttocks, it is also highly effective as a facial enhancement procedure.

What is facial liposuction?

At South Coast Plastic Surgery, Dr. Ali is highly skilled in the technique and artistry needed to create beautiful results. To create a more refined profile, our Irvine facial liposuction procedure is performed with the safest and most effective technique for removing fat from the chin, jowls, and neck areas. Not only does this cutting-edge technology involve fewer complications and scarring, but it also allows our surgeon to enhance your facial appearance without general anesthesia.

Removing excess chin fat with liposuction

If you have excess fat under the chin, along the jawline, in your neck, cheeks, or jowls, facial liposuction can help you achieve a more youthful, elegant, refined look. When the excess fat beneath the chin and on the upper neck is removed, the facial structure has the effect of creating a look that appears younger and slimmer overall.

Renew your look: What’s right for you?

For younger patients with good skin tone and relatively little sagging of facial tissue, facial liposuction alone may achieve your cosmetic goals. For older patients, facial liposuction in Ladera Ranch is often combined with procedures such as a brow lift, eyelid surgery, or a facelift to create a dramatically enhanced facial appearance. Men and women focused on gaining a more appealing definition in their chin or cheeks may also consider facial fat grafting, facial fillers, or facial implants to create a more sculpted profile.

What is the facial liposuction procedure?

After carefully analyzing the problem areas, Dr. Ali will make a tiny incision on the periphery of the area to be re-sculpted. Through these incisions, a tumescent solution containing a local anesthetic is injected into the area. Next, a very fine cannula is inserted to disrupt the fat cells and sculpt the area to create the desired contour. A small amount of the disrupted fat is suctioned out through a fine cannula. Though only small amounts of disrupted fat cells are removed during this procedure, the results are dramatic.

What can facial liposuction do?

Your body may be genetically programmed to store excess fat beneath your chin, which is almost impossible to shed with diet and exercise. When performed by a master of the art of facial liposuction in Orange County, you can resolve the following problems:

  • Double chin
  • Fatty tissue on the upper neck
  • Excess fat at the jawline

At South Coast Plastic Surgery, every procedure is customized. A younger person with resilient skin can have excess fat beneath the chin removed to create a more sculpted facial profile. For older patients with skin laxity, the procedure is typically performed as an adjunct to a facelift or neck lift to remove excess skin and restore an elegant, youthful jaw and neckline.

How long does facial liposuction take?

The surgery typically takes about an hour. Following the procedure and after the brief recovery period, you will enjoy a more slender, more sculpted facial contour. Facial liposuction can significantly enhance your appearance.

What is the recovery from facial liposuction?

For the first several days following your procedure, you can expect some swelling and some moderate bruising in the face and neck area. Most of the swelling and bruising will subside within a week. As the swelling dissipates, you will begin to see a more defined neck and jawline. You will need to carefully follow all of your aftercare instructions, which include wearing surgical dressings and sleeping with your head elevated for several days so that swelling can resolve as quickly as possible. Most people are ready to return to work or other regular activities within a week.
