5 Benefits Of Facial Liposuction

February 9, 2023

Facial lipo removes excess fat from problematic areas like the chin and, when combined with a skin tightening treatment, can take years off an appearance.

Mention “liposuction’ and chances are, one would equate it to the fat reduction of the body and, to an extent, other parts like the thighs. Not many know that facial liposuction is a thing. Facial liposuction is a procedure that removes excess fat from problematic areas like the chin and, when combined with a skin tightening treatment, can take years off an appearance.

To realise optimal results and, more importantly, to ensure safety, it is advisable to seek treatment from an experienced and qualified doctor. Dr Ivan Puah, Medical Director of Amaris B. Clinic, has seen patients undergoing corrective surgery due to poor or uninformed (and ill-informed at times) choices. Nonetheless, with his extensive experience in the field, Dr Puah has also seen first-hand how a procedure like liposuction has helped to better a person’s confidence and life.

What are the Benefits of Facial Liposuction?

6 Benefits Of Facial Liposuction - Woman with double chin

01. Improves Your Profile

The face is the most visible part of a person’s physical features. A strong jawline, for example, can convey strength, while a sagging chin not only adds years to the appearance but can also relay the wrong message that the person is unhealthy, among other things. 

Facial liposuction can help eliminate excess fat from the chin and neck - two of the most visible parts of the face. This could help to enhance other features like the cheekbones and others, making them more noticeable. It is the norm for Dr Ivan Puah to discuss the possibilities that facial liposuction can do for his patients during the consultation, for, after all, each patient is unique. 

02. Helps you look younger

The face is where the signs of ageing can be most prominent. Even for those who are still young, certain factors can make them look aged and unhealthy. The turkey neck, double chin, and loose jowl appearance are signs of ageing or factors that can make a young person look aged. 

Fat removal from these areas via liposuction can add youth and take away years from a person’s appearance. Looking younger is not only for vanity reasons. It can inspire a person to adopt a healthier lifestyle that can positively impact their wellbeing. 

03. Gets you rid of double chin and sagging skin

Double chin is a condition that can affect people across all walks of life; one doesn’t have to be overweight. It causes a person to look puffy, and this can add years to their actual age. Many people with double chins are often at a loss as to what to do. The thought that liposuction could be an option never crossed their minds as the procedure is usually related to the body.

The advancement in liposuction techniques and technology, including facial liposuction, has made the procedure even safer, producing better results. The double chin can now be a thing of the past, and a person can look forward to a more defined and youthful appearance.

04. Enhances your facial features

The essence of facial liposuction is the reduction or elimination of excess fat on a feature, which, in turn, helps to enhance other features. Although the amount of fat removed is small, the effect can be profound - for the better. The cheekbones, for example, are enhanced in their appearance as there is no “distraction” of excess fat somewhere else. Facial liposuction helps to sculpt and define a face.

05. Enhancing surgical results with non-invasive facelift

Removing excess fat is actually one part of the process. Skin tightening and/or non-invasive facelift treatment can further produce optimal results. A treatment like Ultherapy compliments a facial liposuction procedure as the former encourages the production of collagen, which is responsible for the skin’s youthful and healthy appearance.

Ultherapy is the only FDA-approved non-invasive treatment that can help to lift the neck, chin and brow. The treatment delivers natural-looking results without surgery or the need for downtime. 

Ideal candidates for liposuction

Ideally, the suitable candidates should:

  • Be healthy with no underlying medical conditionsLed a healthy lifestyle 
  • Have an extractable amount of excess facial fat and good skin tone
  • Have realistic expectations of what the procedure can and can’t achieve

What’s the difference between a double chin, a turkey neck and buccal fat?

6 Benefits Of Facial Liposuction - Woman having her buccal fat checked

For the uninformed, they can be confusing, particularly between the double chin and the turkey neck. So here’s a simple guide:

  • Double chin - This is the fat deposit found underneath the skin. Although it’s located on the neck area instead of the chin, it’s called the double chin because of how it looks.

  • Turkey neck - As opposed to fat deposit, the turkey neck is actually loose skin resulting from ageing. As skin ages, it loses elasticity and sags, unlike the double chin, where there is a bulge due to fat deposit.

  • Buccal fat - This fat is found between the cheekbones and jaw bones and basically shapes the face. An example of this fat in large amounts is the baby face appearance. Buccal fat can be removed via cheek reduction surgery and is a type of plastic surgery.

All of the above conditions can be addressed. 

Facial liposuction is more than just what meets the eye. It is a procedure that combines science and art.

Liposuction undeniably is the most sought-after option when it comes to fat removal. Its proven results stand testimony to that claim, but the smiles of satisfaction are just what meets the eye. There are intricacies and complexities involved, which means the performing doctor must have knowledge beyond qualifications and experience. An artistic vision for aesthetics is also a highly beneficial prerequisite to achieving desired and optimal results because liposuction is a procedure that combines science and art.
