Facial liposuction is the removal of fat from the cheeks and jawline. This procedure can significantly reduce excess facial fat which may cause an overweight appearance or a poorly defined jaw line with or without double chin. The excess fat is often a result of aging, obesity, or heredity.
Facial liposuction involves either an intra-oral incision through the mouth or a transdermal incision in front of the ear. Scarring is minimal because the incision is made in a crease of the skin. Dr Khan performs the procedure under local anesthesia with micro-cannulas to precisely sculpt the face and jaw line. Some patients desire skin tightening as part of the procedure. For those selected groups of patients, Dr Khan uses low level laser therapy (LLLT) or a gentle fractional laser resurfacing after the liposuction to achieve skin tightening. This combination procedure can provide satisfactory results of skin tightening without the need for full face lifts. Face sculpting can be combined with neck liposuction at the same time to achieve the best possible cosmetic outcome.
