Most people agree that the ideal lower face and neck area is lean, contoured, and well-defined. Unfortunately, factors such as weight gain and the aging process cause fat to collect in this region, resulting in distorted contours in the lower face and a round, portly facial aesthetic.
Who is a candidate for facial liposuction?
The overall goal of all liposuction surgeries is to remove excess fat from the body. However, the procedure is not designed to address cosmetic concerns in regards to excess, loose, or sagging skin. As such, the ideal lower facial liposuction candidates will have good skin tone and elasticity in the face and neck region. Patients that want to treat loose skin in this region can benefit from a neck lift procedure, either as a substitution or as a complementary procedure to be performed in tandem with their facial liposuction.
