Facial lipocontouring is a cosmetic procedure that uses liposuction to enhance the aesthetic appearance of the neck and facial area. It removes excess fat from areas on the neck and face to tone and improve their appearance. When it comes to high-quality facial lipocontouring, Bellevue patients rely on Liebertz Plastic Surgery at Yarrow Bay to enhance their image.
What Is Facial Lipocontouring?
People accumulate excess fat buildup in their neck and jowls as they grow older. In turn, they will develop a double chin or lose the sharp angle of their neck area.
They will find it hard to reduce or remove that fat once it has accumulated. In some cases, proper diet and exercise are no longer enough to treat these issues. Facial lipocontouring can effectively solve these aesthetic concerns.
Is Facial Lipocontouring Right for Me?
Facial lipocontouring is appropriate for healthy patients with excess fat buildup in their neck and facial area. Patients who achieved their ideal body weight and want to tone their facial and neck area are ideal candidates for facial lipocontouring. Candidates must have realistic expectations for the results of facial lipocontouring.
During your facial lipocontouring consultation, we will discuss your goals for the procedure. You must inform us if you have tried any other corrective options or are currently taking any medications or supplements. We will evaluate your medical records and examine the areas you are concerned with. We will then determine the most suitable cosmetic procedure for your goals.
If you’ve decided to move forward with the facial lipocontouring procedure, we will customize the best treatment plan for you. Do not hesitate to ask questions during our consultation.
Facial lipocontouring will last around one hour. Anesthesia will be administered to make the procedure comfortable for the patient. Once the anesthesia takes full effect, tiny incisions will be made in the target areas to create access for the cannula. The cannula will be inserted, and then fatty tissue will be removed using medical suction.
If a facelift or neck lift is combined with facial liposuction, it will be incorporated into this process.
The Facial Lipocontouring Recovery Period
After the facial lipocontouring surgery, the patient will wear a compression garment on the neck and facial area within a week. By the end of the first week, if sutures were used, they will be removed from the treated area during a follow-up appointment.
Instructions will be given to the patient to aid in the healing process, and pain-control medications will be prescribed. Depending on the healing capability of the patient, the recovery period will take a week or two. Physical activities will be prohibited during the recovery period.
A follow-up appointment will be scheduled within a month to monitor the recovery of the patient and evaluate the results of the surgery.
Facial Lipocontouring Cost
The cost of the facial lipocontouring procedure will be based on the target areas. If the treatment plan includes other cosmetic procedures such as a facelift, it will alter the overall price of the surgery.
