Your face says a lot about you as a person. In many ways, it provides others with a lasting impression of who you are, how you feel, and what you think. If you’re bothered by excess fat around your cheeks, chin, and neck that seem to remain regardless of diet or exercise, perhaps facial liposuction is for you.
What is facial liposuction?
Liposuction surgery removes unwanted localized deposits of fat cells from the body. Dr. Prysi uses a special tube called a cannula, which is inserted through a tiny incision placed in an inconspicuous location on the face or neck. Using suction, the fat cells are extracted, resulting in more attractive and youthful facial contours.
In younger patients, facial liposuction is often effective on its own. In older patients, for optimal results, a facelift, brow lift, eyelid surgery, or nose surgery may be recommended. It can be performed with the addition of cheek or chin implants for better definition.
Who are the best candidates?
Most men and women living in Southwest Florida who have localized facial fatty deposits are good candidates for facial liposuction provided they:
▪ Are in good health
▪ Have fat deposits disproportionate to the rest of their bodies
▪ Have good skin elasticity
▪ Have realistic expectations
After puberty, we do not create many new fat cells. When you gain weight, you expand the fat cells that you have. Facial liposuction permanently removes fat cells to improve your facial contour.
Should you gain weight after liposuction, it will go to the fat cells that remain in your body. The localized fatty deposits that existed prior to liposuction can no longer balloon up out of proportion to the surrounding areas.
