Face & Neck Liposuction
What can face and neck liposuction accomplish?
A delicate liposuction procedure can transform your face. In addition to creating a chiseled and defined appearance, it can make you look years younger by eliminating heaviness that has developed due to the natural aging process.
In addition, the procedure can:
- Eliminate an unsightly double chin
- Improve the appearance of heavy jowls
- Establish more attractive facial contours
- Create a more defined and contoured jawline
- Restore a youthful overall look that takes years off your appearance
- Eliminate sagging skin on the neck
- Sculpt a slender and more refined face
As we age, fatty deposits tend to accumulate on the chin, neck and jowls, creating an older and less vibrant overall appearance. When this occurs, face and neck liposuction with Dr. Sukkar can eliminate the unwanted volume and restore your refreshed and youthful look.
Is this procedure
Unwanted fat on the face and neck can create an older, less attractive and undesirable cosmetic effect. And unfortunately, this excess volume tends to develop due to congenital factors and the natural aging process, so it’s not responsive to diet and exercise. When this occurs, a gentle liposuction procedure may offer the perfect solution.
To be considered an ideal candidate, you should be close to your ideal body weight, because any substantial fluctuations will impact your final look. You should also possess good skin elasticity and muscle tone, as these features will allow Dr. Sukkar to sculpt the best possible outcome.
An overview of the liposuction procedure
Your face and neck liposuction will be performed in our Houston office under local anesthesia, which means you’ll be awake and able to move around, but you won’t feel any pain or discomfort. Dr. Sukkar will begin the procedure by injecting a special tumescent solution into the fatty areas of your face and neck to block pain and minimize post-operative bruising.
From there, he will make a very small incision underneath the chin and behind each earlobe. Through those openings, he will gently move a micro-cannula back and forth to break up and eliminate any excess fat. Once Dr. Sukkar has removed all of the unwanted fat and sculpted a youthful and defined face and neck, he will close the incisions carefully to ensure any resulting scars are practically invisible to the eye. You will then be sent home immediately to begin the healing process.
There is a very light and easy recovery period associated with face and neck liposuction. In fact, many of our Houston patients are able to return to work and their normal daily routines within 24 hours. In most cases, you’ll experience very minimal discomfort and virtually no pain, and any swelling will be minor and should disappear within three days. In the meantime, these effects can be easily managed with over-the-counter pain medication and ice packs. Throughout the first two days after treatment, you’ll also need to wear a special compression garment to hold your skin in place and ensure optimal results once the area has fully healed.
