Excess fat accumulation can change the shape of the face, chin and neck. Not only can fat hide bone structure, but it can also result in an older appearance in some cases. At LM Medical NYC in Manhattan, we offer facial liposuction or liposculpture to reshape and slim the face, chin and neck for a more attractive or youthful appearance.
Genetics, lifestyle, hormonal changes, aging and other factors can result in some people having excess fat in their cheeks, jowls, under the chin or on their neck. Even those with a healthy weight may have genetically chubby cheeks or a double chin. Excess fat on the face and neck can create a round face, heavy jowls or an undefined chin. With facial liposuction or liposculpture, targeted fat can be removed to reshape and slim the face, chin or neck.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Facial Liposculpture?
Facial liposculpture can be used to reshape the face or neck, removing unwanted fat. This can slim chubby cheeks, shrink heavy jowls or create a defined chin. However, facial liposuction only removes the fat under the skin, and it does not remove excess or loose skin. Good candidates for facial liposuction are younger and still have good skin elasticity. This ensures the skin will tighten after the procedure without leaving loose or sagging skin. Older patients with excess fat in the jowls or under the chin and poor skin laxity may be better candidates for a facelift versus liposuction alone.
Facial liposuction can reveal a more sculpted face and chin. For men, this can result in a more masculine face or jawline, and women can experience a slimmer, more svelte facial appearance. To combat slight skin laxity, procedures like skin tightening can be combined with a facial liposculpture procedure.
If you have a rounder face, a double chin or heavy jowls, facial liposuction can be an option to slim and reshape your face, chin or neck. To learn more, contact us at LM Medical NYC in Manhattan to schedule a consultation with our double board certified facial plastic surgeon.
