Let’s face it: if you don’t look your best, you don’t feel your best. Feeling self-conscious about certain parts of your body can be extremely frustrating and tiresome. As providers of Chicago cosmetic surgery, our team at the Liposuction and Cosmetic Surgery Institute understand the urge to address your insecurities, especially insecurities revolving around your face. If you are insecure about the amount of fat in your face and neck or feel tired of looking at your double chin, consider liposculpture of the face to achieve a slimmer facial appearance when diet and exercise aren’t enough.
What Is It?
This is a surgical procedure that can be utilized to target specific areas of the face to improve the natural contours. It helps to eliminate stubborn pockets of fat that will ultimately slim the cheeks, reducing the appearance of a double chin and help slim down the neck. In order to complete the procedure, our experienced team will make one (or more, depending on the desired outcome) incision near the area that needs to be suctioned and slimmed. Rest assured that our team always does our best to place the incisions within your body’s natural folds to help reduce overall scarring. A slim, hollow tube will be placed inside of the targeted area to penetrate the underlying fat.
Who is a Candidate?
While nearly anyone who is unhappy with excess fat in and around the face and neck, patients who have good skin elasticity will benefit the most from the procedure. This is due to the fact that their skin will have a smooth contour following the procedure. It’s also ideal that patients keep up with an active, healthy lifestyle following the procedure to continue to experience the benefits that the procedure provided.
Many patients also combine the liposculpture procedure with other procedures such as a tummy tuck to achieve their overall desired look.
Following the Procedure
It’s expected to experience some facial swelling and bruising in the areas that you received liposculpture of the face. While the results will be immediately noticeable after surgery, swelling will take a full 6 months to subside before you see the complete results. Compression garments around your face can help subside swelling as well.
