Diet and exercise can help many areas of the body to remove fat. But nothing of the two seems to affect those fatty deposits on the face. It is here that on can understand the importance of facial liposuction surgery. The facial liposuction in most cases is able to make a dramatic change in the way a person looks by removing the excess fat from under the cheeks, chin and neck.
Facial Liposuction Surgery
Many youngsters have the undersurface of the chin becoming fuller, plumper, and rounded with time and with weight gain. The cheeks similarly can become more round or protruding. The neck becomes thicker. Removing fat with the help of facial liposuction surgery always helps in such cases by providing a new improved look to both young boys and girls.
Facial and neck liposuction is an effective liposuction procedure for removing localized fatty deposits in the undersurface of the neck area and the neck region. It is also effective in region in front of the ears.
In younger patients, a facial liposuction procedure is generally sufficient to obtain the desired results. But in older patients facial liposuction surgery needs to be combined with a facelift, brow-lift, eyelid or nose surgery for optimal results. Sometimes the liposuction procedure can also be performed along with chin or cheek implants.
Liposuction surgery in fact is a plastic surgery procedure which reshapes the body part by getting rid of unwanted fat by suction from specific fat pockets. Besides the facial liposuction the areas of your body from where the fat can be removed include the abdomen, hips, buttocks, thighs, knees, upper arms.
In the original liposuction procedure the fat deposits are removed with a tube or cannula attached to a vacuum device or through a long syringe. But in a modified lipoplasy procedure tumescent technique is used. In this technique the targeted fat tissue is injected with saline solution and a large amount of anesthetic liquid, before liposuction surgery is performed. The injected liquid causes the compartments of fat to become swollen and firm or “tumesced.” The expanded fat compartments allow the liposuction cannula to travel smoothly beneath the skin as the fat is removed.
Good Candidate for Liposcution
Good candidate for the lipoplasty is a person who is normal-weight and has firm, elastic skin with pockets of excess fat in certain areas of his or her body. Liposuction can also be considered a good option by a facial plastic surgeon to enhance facial balance, by reducing fatty deposits in the chin, cheeks, or neck.
An initial consultation with a plastic surgeon always helps to find out the best liposuction procedure for you. Facial liposuction is usually done as an outpatient surgery and patients go home soon after the liposuction procedure is over. Some minor bruising and swelling in and around the liposuction areas is seen. But a normal appearance is achieved within five to seven days. No one will mind a mild discomfort or pain for the results that the liposuction surgery offers.
