Your face in many instances will give away how you feel and think. The fatty deposits in the chin and jaw line or neck area give the impression of fatigue and give a tired look. While dieting and exercising might be effective for other parts of your body, you will find that the facial fatty deposits are among the most resistant. Facial liposuction in Detroit can make a dramatic difference in your appearance by removing the excess of fat.
Who can benefit from the procedure?
Any man or woman who has fatty deposits and is in good health along with good skin elasticity.
Is the fat removal permanent ?
After puberty we gain weight not by creating new fatty cells but rather by expanding the existing fatty cells. The facial liposuction permanently reduces the number of the fatty cells allowing for a proper facial contouring. You can still gain fat after liposuction however it will remain in proportion with the rest of the body.
How is the procedure performed ?
The procedure is performed in our operating room inside our surgery center in Detroit, MI. Local anesthesia is used, in many instances there is no need for sedation, however this is available should you need it. The procedure is done using a surgical high power sub atmospheric pressure pump to suck out the excess of fat. This procedure might have to be combined with a face and neck lift in the older patients however if the skin elasticity and age is appropriate this procedure is performed along. Typically there is no need to repeat the procedure in the future.
What will the recovery be like ?
There will be an incision requiring 1 or 2 small stitches under the chin, you will need a elastic dressing to be worn for a few days, you will be recommended to relax for the rest of the day at home and resume your activity the next morning. If needed pain relievers can be used.
At 52 years old, I am a very physically fit male and take pride in my appearance. I am starting to get the telltale signs of jowls and a little double chin. No matter what I do, I can’t get rid of them. Would facial liposuction be an appropriate procedure for me or do I need to have a facelift along with it?
SmartLipo™ is a highly effective, minimally-invasive liposuction technique which uses a high-powered laser to rupture and liquefy the fat cells, thus easing removal. This technique generally involves a quicker, easier recovery compared to traditional liposuction. While many areas of the body can be treated, it is ideal for treating small areas like the chin and jowls. SmartLipo™ also offers the benefit of skin tightening as well.
