Dr. Kouris Is Your Chicago Facial Liposuction Specialist
Are you distressed by fatty deposits in cheeks, the jaw line, your chin or neck? Perhaps you have tried exercising, but are faced with stubborn areas that refuse to respond. Facial liposuction is a specific method of liposuction designed to remove and sculpt excess fat in facial areas, producing contours that are smoother and more pleasing, even in regions of the face that don’t respond to other treatments.
How Facial Liposuction Benefits You
Facial liposuction is particularly successful in treating stubborn fat in the cheek, jowl, and neck areas. Fatty areas of the neck are frequently called double chins, turkey necks or “wattles,” and are treated with neck liposuction. The result may be understated but is highly effective, giving you the appearance of a more youthful, slender contour.
Facial liposuction and neck liposuction are very much like other liposuction techniques, though Dr. Kouris utilizes a micro-cannula (an ultra-thin tube), as opposed to a full-size cannula. The ultra-thin tube takes out very small amounts of fatty tissue at a time, allowing for pinpoint facial and neck sculpting. Facial liposuction procedures take approximately forty-five to sixty minutes, and requires only local anesthesia and some light sedation.
Often, a patient opt for supplementary procedures to be done in addition to facial liposuction or neck liposuction. Procedures for even further fine tuning of lines, wrinkles, puffiness around the eyes, sunken cheeks, thin lips, or sagging/hanging skin in the facial and neck areas can regularly be done during the same visit. The most common performed with facial liposuction are face lifts, brow lifts, eyelid surgery, facial fillers, neck lifts and Botox®/Xeomin®.
