Facial fat is important for creating the right contours and firmness in the face. Too little facial fat can make the face look hollow, unnourished and older, but too much fat can hide attractive angular features. Facial liposculpture is a procedure that is used to obtain the right facial fat balance to create an attractive appearance. Dr. Peter Koltz at pēkomd® plastic surgery center offers face liposuction for sculpting the facial structure at our clinic in Toledo, OH.
You cannot choose where your body stores fat. Many people who are otherwise a healthy weight have excess fat stored on and around their face. Double chins, chipmunk cheeks and neck fat can detract from the desired facial appearance. To slim the face or neck and reveal the desired contours, the best solution is facial liposuction.
Diet and exercise will not remove targeted fat, but liposuction can permanently eradicate fat cells. For the face and neck, liposculpture can precisely remove the right amount of fat under the skin. When completed by a skilled and experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Koltz, facial liposuction can reveal beautiful contours for a more attractive appearance.
Facial Liposuction Procedures
There are different options in facial liposculpture, depending on what you want to accomplish. For patients with some lost skin elasticity, a non-surgical option like AccuTite may be beneficial. This procedure uses radiofrequency-assisted liposuction (RFAL) to sculpt the face while stimulating collagen in the skin to firm and tighten after the fat is removed. For younger patients only wanting to reduce a double chin or chubby cheeks, traditional facial liposuction may be the best option. Dr. Koltz can help you decide which type of facial liposculpture procedure would be best to achieve the desired results.
Liposuction effectively removes fat cells permanently. Once gone, fat cells do not regenerate, offering long-term results. This can reshape your neck, chin, cheeks or face, creating the right facial fat balance.
If you have excess facial fat that you want removed, consider the benefits of liposuction or non-surgical facial liposculpture.
