Liposuction on my Face

Are you are planning to undergo liposuction on your face? Do you want to know about the procedure? If yes, then, you have landed in the right place. In this article, we will discuss important factors associated with the procedure of facial liposuction. But before we proceed, let’s find out what facial liposuction is.

What is Liposuction?

Liposuction is a body contouring procedure performed for the removal of excess fat on certain localized areas of the body. It is one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures. Liposuction is effective for the removal of fat in both large and small areas of the body.

What is Facial Liposuction?

Facial liposuction is performed to remove fat on the face and neck. Nowadays, this treatment is becoming quite popular among people, especially women. However, the majority of people still have reservations about the procedure. People want to know whether having liposuction on the face is effective and safe or not. We have discussed this in detail below.

Is Facial Liposuction Safe?

Generally, liposuction on the face is considered a dangerous and unsuccessful procedure. However, if you choose a well-trained and board-certified plastic surgeon, you have nothing to worry about. They use appropriate techniques for performing liposuction. As a result, you achieve highly successful and beneficial results. Facial liposuction is a highly effective procedure for women with a discreet collection of fat beneath the chin. This fat is easier to remove at a young age.

Although facial liposuction is generally a safe procedure, yet uneven results can occur as facial fat is folded within facial nerves. The main reason behind disappointing results is that the procedure involves the use of a cannula for the removal of fat. Usually, a tiny cannula is used in the procedure. However, no matter how small it is, it will cause scarring that may become prominent. To avoid this from happening, always choose a highly experienced plastic surgeon for the procedure.

What is the Process of Facial Liposuction?

The process of liposuction on the face goes like this:

  • Local anesthesia is injected into the treatment area.
  • A thin hollow tube is inserted through extremely small incisions.
  • This tube is used to breakdown the fat.
  • At the end of the procedure, the tube is removed using a vacuum.

In some modern liposuction techniques, laser and ultrasound waves are used to liquefy fat that makes its removal easier. The suitability of the technique is determined by your plastic surgeon.

Facts about Facial Liposuction

Before undergoing this procedure, you must be aware of some important facts associated with it. Some facts about facial liposuction are given below:

  • The procedure can be unpleasant

An anesthetic is used to prevent any pain or discomfort during the procedure. However, it may cause pain as facial skin tissues are very delicate. The skin tissues may also get affected resulting in bleeding and burning.

  • You may not get desired results

Although it is not common yet people with inelastic skin may not get desired results. This will result in sagging skin. However, for people with elastic skin, the results of the procedure will be smoother. Facial liposuction, in some cases, may also result in irregular shape affecting facial contours.

  • The procedure may cause a reaction

For some patients, anesthesia injected in the skin may cause a reaction and affect adversely.

  • The healing process can be discomforting

The healing process can be painful and discomforting for the patient. However, plastic surgeons prescribe medications to treat pain and discomfort during the recovery period. Using the prescribed medicine will help ease the discomfort.

Side Effects of the Procedure

Facial liposuction does not cause severe complications in most of the cases. But it does cause a certain level of swelling and bruising. Moreover, hematoma, bleeding, and seroma are very rare complications associated with facial liposuction.

To sum up, it can be said that there are certain side effects associated with facial liposuction. However, they can be eliminated or at least minimized by selecting an experienced plastic surgeon.
