Facial Liposuction

Facial Liposuction Atlanta

Facial Lipo

Facial liposuction, otherwise known as submental liposuction, is a very common plastic surgery procedure performed to remove excess fat from the face. More specifically, facial liposuction targets the cheeks, jawline, and neck. Facial liposuction in Atlanta can sculpt and contour the face, neck, and jowls, providing patients with a more defined facial appearance. At Astra Plastic Surgery, we perform facial liposuction for patients looking to eliminate stubborn pockets of fat that are resistant to routine diet and exercise. Oftentimes, patients choose to combine facial liposuction with facelift, neck lift, or Profound® skin tightening in order to achieve more comprehensive results.

What Is Facial Liposuction?

Facial liposuction is very similar to traditional liposuction, which is typically used to remove excess fat and contour the body, rather it treats the face and neck. Using a small cannula and minimal incisions, our facial plastic surgeons can target fat on the face with precision. Facial lipo removes excess fat cells from the face, slimming facial contours. Patients can enjoy a slimmer, more defined facial profile. Facial liposuction can treat problem areas such as the cheeks, chin, jawline, jowls, and neck.

Age, genetics, and weight are some major factors that contribute to an excess of fat on the face. Too much fat can cause the face to appear chubby, older, and hide facial definition. Some patients naturally carry more fat in their face. Unlike other areas of the body, fat that appears on the face is difficult to target and treat naturally. However, liposuction can effectively remove pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. It’s important to remember that facial liposuction is not a weight loss procedure, and the fat will return if patients choose to make unhealthy lifestyle decisions.

What Are The Benefits Of Facial Liposuction?

Facial liposuction can remove stubborn fat deposits from the cheeks, chin, jowls, and jawline. Facial liposuction can target multiple treatment areas at once, allowing patients to achieve their desired results in just one procedure. The results of facial liposuction are natural-looking and long-lasting.

Am I An Ideal Candidate For Facial Liposuction?

If you struggle with the appearance of excess fat in the cheeks, jawline, chin, or jowls, facial liposuction surgery may be right or you. Facial liposuction surgery can help patients achieve a slimmer profile and more contoured facial appearance. The ideal candidate is in good general health, a non-smoker, and within a few pounds of their goal weight. It is important to remember that facial liposuction is not a weight loss procedure, and the fat cells will regenerate if patients do not maintain a healthy lifestyle following the procedure.

During your consultation for facial liposuction in Atlanta, Dr. Killingsworth and his team of plastic surgeons will review your health history, your aesthetic goals, and facial anatomy to help determine if you are an ideal candidate for facial lipo. In some cases, skin quality can deter patients from being candidates for facial liposuction. If a patient doesn’t have good skin quality, specifically skin elasticity, removing excess fat can lead to sagging skin. However, we offer many skin tightening treatments that can be paired with facial liposuction. The facial liposuction procedure is customized to fit the needs of each individual patient.

What Should I Expect During Facial Liposuction?

Before undergoing facial liposuction in Atlanta, patients will be administered either general or local anesthesia to numb the treatment areas. The type of anesthesia administered is dependent on a variety of factors, including how many areas are being treated, the patient’s aesthetic goals, and how much fat needs to be removed.

Once numbed, your facial plastic surgeon will make small incisions in which the fat will be removed from. Then, they will insert a small cannula beneath the surface of the skin. By moving the cannula gently back and forth, your surgeon will dislodge and suction out the fat cells. After all of the targeted fat has been removed, the incisions will be closed. Although procedure times differ for every patient, facial liposuction can take as little as 30 minutes to complete.

What Should I Expect After Facial Liposuction?

Following facial liposuction surgery, patients should take time to relax and allow their body to heal. Although recovery time varies per patient, it can take between 6 to 8 weeks to fully heal. Most patients will experience mild-to-moderate bruising and swelling; however, these symptoms are normal and will subside throughout the recovery period. It is recommended that patients refrain from vigorous physical activity after their procedure.

Before sending you home, Dr. Killingsworth and his staff of plastic surgery professionals will provide detailed aftercare instructions. In order to minimize the recovery period and maximize results, patients should be sure to follow these instructions with care. If you have any questions throughout your recovery, we encourage you to call the office. Our staff is on hand to answer any questions you may have during this time.




What Results Should I Expect From Facial Liposuction?

During your consultation for facial liposuction in Atlanta, Dr. Killingsworth and his team will go over your expected results in depth. It is important to remember that the results of every facial liposuction surgery will differ based on the patient’s individual goals and more. Although the results of facial liposuction are long-lasting, the fat will return if patients do not maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Immediately following the facial liposuction procedure, it may be hard for patients to visualize their final results due to the swelling and surgical dressings. However, as the treatment area begins to heal, patients will begin to notice the results of their facial liposuction. Over time, the skin will continue to tighten, and patients can enjoy their new, slimmer profile.

How Much Does Facial Liposuction In Atlanta Cost?

Astra Plastic Surgery offers facial liposuction for patients seeking to remove excess facial fat. The cost of your facial liposuction depends on a variety of factors. Because facial liposuction is considered a cosmetic procedure, it is not covered by insurance. We will provide you with the complete cost during your consultation. We accept payment by cash, personal check, credit card, CareCredit®, and Alphaeon® Credit financing.
