Facial liposuction is a very common and popular procedure. Fat that is primarily under your chin and neck areas, and sometimes the “jowl” areas, can be permanently removed. It is an elective procedure that allows the surgeon to remove undesirable, subcutaneous fat in specific areas that do not respond to diet and exercise.
Patients with good skin tone who have fatty deposits receive the best results from facial liposuction. It is not a treatment for obesity. If weight gain occurs following liposuction, the fat will be deposited in areas that have not been treated. The procedure can be repeated, if necessary.
