Beverly Hills Facial and Neck Liposuction
As we age, excess fat can collect in various areas around the face and neck. These extra pockets of fat can cause double chins, neck fullness or an overall poor-looking facial structure. As part of our face and neck plastic surgery procedures at the Beverly Hills Center for Plastic & Laser Surgery, Dr. Ben Talei, a dual board-certified facial plastic surgeon offers the most advanced level of facial and neck liposuction in the area.
Dr. Talei’s neck liposuction or buccal fat removal procedures can gently remove the fatty deposits within your facial or neck regions that diet and exercise may not affect. These popular surgeries have immediate results by improving your facial profile and a very high success and satisfaction rate.
How does facial liposuction work?
Facial liposuction, a cosmetic procedure designed to sculpt and contour the face, operates by removing excess fat deposits to enhance facial definition and restore a more youthful appearance. During the procedure, Dr. Talei makes small, inconspicuous incisions strategically placed in targeted areas, such as the chin, cheeks or jawline. A thin tube, called a cannula, is then inserted to gently suction out excess fat, effectively sculpting the desired contours. Advanced techniques, such as laser or ultrasound-assisted liposuction, may be employed to facilitate fat removal and stimulate collagen production for skin tightening. Facial liposuction is known for its ability to refine facial features, reduce a double chin, and create a harmonious balance, resulting in a rejuvenated and aesthetically pleasing facial profile.
Who is a good candidate for neck liposuction?
Ideal candidates for neck liposuction are individuals who exhibit localized fat deposits in the neck area, often presenting as a double chin or lack of definition along the jawline. Good candidates generally have good skin elasticity, as liposuction relies on the skin’s ability to contract after fat removal. It is essential that candidates are in overall good health, free from significant medical conditions that could pose risks during the procedure or impede the recovery process. Non-smokers are preferred, as smoking can negatively impact skin healing and increase the risk of complications. Candidates should have realistic expectations about the outcomes of neck liposuction and understand that it is not a substitute for weight loss.
Can face and neck liposuction be combined with other procedures?
Combining facial and neck liposuction with other cosmetic procedures is a common and effective approach to achieving comprehensive facial rejuvenation. Many individuals opt for a combination of procedures to address multiple concerns simultaneously. Face and neck liposuction are often times combined with other techniques like skin tightening, chin implants or face and neck lifts to provide a fully rejuvenated appearance. Together, these procedures can eliminate jowls, bags under the eyes and excess fat around the face and neck, giving you a more defined jawline and thinner face.
What is the recovery time for Neck Liposuction?
The recovery time for neck liposuction is typically relatively short, allowing individuals to resume normal activities shortly after the procedure. While experiences may vary, patients can generally expect some swelling and mild bruising in the treated area, which gradually subsides over the first few days to weeks. It is advisable to wear a compression garment during the initial stages of recovery to support the healing process and minimize swelling. Most individuals can return to work and light activities within a week, with more strenuous activities gradually reintroduced after a few weeks. Following the post-operative care instructions provided by Dr. Talei is crucial for a smooth recovery. While visible improvements are often noticeable early on, the final results become more apparent as the swelling fully resolves, typically within a few months.
