Is excess weight gain around your face causing you to look older than you actually are? Facial liposuction is a safe and effective way to bring back the definition and personality to your face. Dr. David Sayah recommends facial liposuction to certain patients based on their age, desired results, and other factors. In this post, Dr. Sayah explains how facial liposuction can give you a more youthful look.
TARGET PROBLEM AREAS ON THE FACE
Many patients are interested in facial liposuction due to certain “problem areas.” These areas tend to accumulate fatty deposits due to weight gain, and can cause loss of your defined facial lines. Many patients complain about weight gain in the jowls that hides their jaw line, as well as weight gain in the upper neck and chin that can cause “turkey neck” or a double chin. These three problem areas are the ones most effectively targeted by facial liposuction.
BETTER OPTION THAN FACELIFT FOR SOME PATIENTS
For younger patients with good skin elasticity, facial liposuction may be a more suitable option than facelift. Unlike some facelift procedures, liposuction usually does not leave noticeable scars. Younger patients interested in cosmetic enhancement tend to be in good overall health, but are noticing changes to their appearance due to weight gain in the face.
GET GREAT RESULTS
It’s important to remember that some amount of fat must be present in the face to retain a youthful look. Liposuction in the cheeks is rarely performed in order avoid the “hollow” look that makes a patient look older. However, if you are experiencing weight gain in the face and your skin elasticity is in good shape, facial liposuction may be a great way to give you a more defined jawline and eliminate turkey neck or a double chin.
