How to Rejuvenate the Face via Liposuction
Where liposuction has long been used as a method of removing stubborn excess pockets of fat on body parts such as the abdomen, advances in cosmetic surgery now allow us to experience the removal of even small areas of fat in other body parts like the arms, ankles, and even the face and neck.
In our laser lipo practices, we only use tumescent liposuction, as well as laser-assisted tumescent liposuction (SmartLipo), to treat these small areas. This is possible because SmartLipo uses laser technology that melts fat cells, allowing them to be removed in liquid form rather than a gelatinous solid.
When the fat is liquefied, we are able to use smaller tools and create smaller incisions. This means that our body sculpting patients can make improvements to the face and neck using SmartLipo.
Ideal for the removal of fat in the chin, jowls, and neck, tumescent liposuction is known for being the safest and most effective fat removal method as of this writing, involving virtually no scars, local anesthesia, and a speedy recovery. When used in the face and neck area, the benefit of SmartLipo is that the results are astoundingly natural and immediate.
Both men and women visit our body sculpting office seeking to improve the appearance of the face. Both receive great results either with laser liposuction because it removes fat and tightens skin that has lost its elasticity.
Facial Features Re-defined
Under the chin is a newly-treatable area, thanks to SmartLipo. This portion of the face lies below the bottom of the jawbone, and reaches down the neck. Some people may refer to an out of shape chin as a "turkey neck" or “wattle”. What is interesting about this area is that it may make a person look somewhat chubby even when he or she is well within an ideal body weight range.
This pocket of fat occurs as we grow older, when the skin begins to lose elasticity. Through treatment in our AAAHC accredited surgical suites, a patient can transform his or her appearance by removing fat from the chin and tightening the skin on the neck.
The cheeks and jowls are other common problem areas that are now correctable with SmartLipo treatment. Some people's genetic makeup results in the development of excess fat in the jaw area.
The jowls are the area situated along the border of the jaw bone. This area, in particular, can cause a person to look older than he or she is and may result in a lack of confidence.
