Improve the Appearance of the Eyelids
Facial Liposuction, also known as Face & Neck Liposuction, or Cervicofacial liposuction, is performed to gently reduce deposits of fat on the chin, cheek, and neck. People typically turn to this procedure because these areas are extremely resistant to any effects from dieting and exercise. However, this treatment allows you to get rid of those fatty deposits by having them surgically removed.

FAQs about Facial Liposuction
When should I choose Liposuction over a Neck or Facelift?
Facial liposuction removes stubborn fat deposits on the face and neck that have accumulated as a result of hereditary, weight gain, and aging. A neck lift tightens the muscles in the neck; so if the muscles in the neck are not sagging, the patient does not need a neck lift. A facelift tightens the skin and if the patient does not have excess skin and has adequate skin elasticity, the skin will shrink to accommodate the new contours created by facial liposuction.
What kind of scars can I expect from Facial Liposuction?
Scars are very minimal with facial liposuction. Small incisions are made under the chin and jawline, or within the natural folds of the face.
When will I see the results of Facial Liposuction?
Results after a facial liposuction will become visible once the swelling subdues, for most patients this is within a few weeks. Occasionally, swelling can take up to a few months to dissipate before optimal results are seen.
Are the results from Facial Liposuction permanent?
Results from face and neck liposuction are, to a certain degree, permanent. The fat cells removed will never return, however if a patient gains significant weight, deposits of fat may develop altering previous results.
What is the expected recovery time for a Facial Liposuction?
With face or neck liposuction, you can expect some bruising and swelling, but recovery time for facial liposuction is minimal, especially compared to more invasive neck or face-lift surgery. Most patients return to work within a few days. Before leaving the center, you will be given specific instructions on how to care for your incisions, medications to use, and when to follow-up with Dr. Azad.
