Do you have a double chin? Excess fat under the skin typically happens because collagen production slows as we age. Skin begins to sag, and pockets of localized fat start to form. This can cause the face and neck to lack contour and make you look years older. Facial liposculpture can rejuvenate features for better definition. By providing more support to your facial profile, you can have greater self-esteem and confidence about your appearance.
Facial Liposculpture Procedure
Facial liposculpture is a cosmetic procedure performed in less than an hour using local anesthesia. The surgeon will typically make incisions under each ear and underneath the skin. Fat is harvested from the thighs or abdomen using a cannula and vacuum device. After being purified, this fat is then injected in small amounts into the face or neck. This procedure will need to be repeated in two-month intervals for two or three more times for optimal results.
You may experience some minor discomfort and swelling for a few days after the procedure. The results of the procedure will become more noticeable once the swelling subsides. You can resume normal activities immediately. To maintain long-term results, it is important to live a healthy lifestyle. Otherwise, fat may return to the area over time and ruin the results you have achieved.
