Facial and Neck Liposuction

Areas of the face and neck can often accumulate excess pockets of fat that are resistant to even the most rigorous diet and exercise routines. The good news is, liposuction and micro-liposuction procedures can eliminate these fat deposits for a more contoured appearance. Dr. John Vartanian can effectively rejuvenate areas of the neck and face with this advanced procedure, helping you to achieve your goals with beautiful results.

Benefits of Facial and Neck Liposuction

Facial and neck liposuction removes excess fat to create a more contoured appearance. This procedure can ultimately enhance the overall balance and symmetry of facial features. Particularly beneficial for patients who experience jowling or excessive amounts of fat in the neck, liposuction techniques can have an extraordinary aesthetic benefit. This procedure is often combined with facelift, neck lift surgery, or chin augmentation to provide patients with smoother, firmer, and more vibrant skin. In most cases, facial and neck liposuction can also be performed under local anesthesia (without being put to sleep) in the office in less than thirty minutes.

Facial and Neck Liposuction Procedure

With liposuction performed under local anesthesia, the face and neck are anesthetized (numbed) and the procedure is performed painlessly with the patient relaxed and listening to music. Dr. John Vartanian utilizes a gentle micro-liposuction technique to ensure precise and smooth liposuction. Facial and/or neck liposuction often takes less than an hour to complete, depending on the areas being treated. Facial and neck liposuction can also be combined with other procedures, such as fat injections.

Facial and Neck Liposuction Recovery

There may be slight bruising and minor swelling in the treatment areas. For most patients who get liposuction on a Friday, they can return to work on a Monday. Recovery information for this procedure greatly depends on which areas you are having treated, and whether it is being combined with another cosmetic enhancement option. For patients who are having facial or neck liposuction alone, light normal daily routines can often be resumed the same day. Dr. Vartanian can provide a more exact estimate of recovery times during your consultation. He will explain the procedure in detail and talk with you about whether this treatment is the best option for your needs.
