Face Treatment

Facial Liposuction


Facial liposuction offers a lasting and reliable solution to eliminate excess fat from specific facial regions, including the chin, cheeks, neck, and jowls (jawline). Facial Liposuction is performed under local anaesthesia, in our accredited Day Surgery Center with the patient under twilight sedation (not GA) and taken care of by our panel of anaesthetists throughout the process.

Dr Ivan Puah will carry out Facial Liposuction using his proprietary surgical technique, the MDC-Sculpt®️ Lipo technique.

What is Dr Ivan Puah’s MDC-Sculpt®️ Lipo technique?

This technique allows him to achieve the main objectives of successful and optimal facial contouring results for his patients - that is - thorough fat removal, facial sculpting, skin tightening, and lifting.

An advocate that liposuction is 70 percent art and 30 percent science, Dr Ivan Puah developed this liposuction technique to allow for comprehensive fat removal and harmonising of natural facial contours.

How do I prepare for Facial Lipo?

During the pre-surgery counselling, you will be given a set of instructions that include the "do's" and "don'ts". The instructions must be followed to reduce the possibility of complications and to facilitate a smooth and quick recovery.

What is the recovery process?

You will be advised on the measures to facilitate a smoother and quicker recovery. Our doctor will advise you on matters about your recovery, and you must heed it.

What are the common side effects?

Common side effects include minor swelling, bruising, and discomfort. Relief comes in the form of painkillers, which will be prescribed.

Type of fat removal

Involves the removal of deep fat from the buccal pad with an incision inside the mouth to slim the cheeks.

Involves the removal of superficial facial fat from areas such as jowls, cheeks, chin, and neck.

Treated area

The buccal fat pad is a mass of fat located in the middle of the cheek, between the facial muscles. It plays an important role in muscle support and essential facial volume.Not only does it help to reduce excess fat from these areas, but it also allows a skilled doctor to sculpt and re-create a more defined jawline and chin.


Facial fat volume and distribution are essential in sustaining facial contours and youthfulness. Losing and removing too much facial fat or losing fat in the wrong areas would make one look less youthful and rejuvenated. Facial Liposuction, if done in a specific way, helps to lift and tighten facial skin.


One of the main complications of buccal fat removal is that when too much fat pad is removed, it leads to the hollowing of facial tissues.Facial Liposuction is a more suitable sculpting procedure as it can effectively remove excess facial fat pockets while lifting the lower face resulting in a well-defined and slimmer jawline.


The importance of choosing the right doctor cannot be overstated when it comes to facial sculpting.

Dr Ivan Puah understands that facial sculpting is an art, and it requires not only skills and experience but also a discerning aesthetic eye.

Over the years, he has delved into the intricacies of the procedure and developed his proprietary liposuction approach -  the MDC-Sculpt®️ Lipo technique.

Dr Ivan Puah

Does Amaris B. provide aftercare treatments?

Does the fat come back after facial liposuction?

Fat, once eliminated, will not regrow. However, it is still essential that you maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle to reduce any possibility of acquiring excess fat.

I have bulky jaw muscles; can facial liposuction reduce that?

Bulky jaw muscles are due to the overdevelopment of the chewing muscles, which makes your face look wider than you like. Facial Liposuction is meant to remove excess facial fat, it does not treat the issue of bulky jaw muscles.

For this concern, we will recommend treating it with injectable neurotoxins to give you a slimmer and softer facial contour. Sometimes, we combine Facial Liposuction and BonTA injection for patients who want to achieve a shapelier and more defined facial profile.

Who are the suitable candidates for facial liposuction?

Generally, healthy individuals (both sexes) with good skin elasticity but excessive facial fat deposits are suitable for the procedure. Facial Liposuction is not suitable for you if your concerns are wrinkles or turkey neck (extremely saggy skin).

How much does facial liposuction cost?

Facial Liposuction is an elective procedure. The costs of this procedure vary between different practices in Singapore, depending on the doctor's experience, your goal, and your needs. It is important to choose a doctor who is experienced and skilled in performing Facial Liposuction, as this is a delicate procedure.
