How Liposuction can Help Sculpt a More Youth Appearance to a Face

One of the most common complaints that men have is fat located in the cheeks, jowls and chin. Unfortunately, exercise cannot correct this issue. Men often turn to liposuction to correct this problem rather than a facelift surgery. Liposuction does not have as many complications as a facelift. Additionally, scarring is minimal and recovery is much quicker. Finally and most importantly, liposuction gives a more natural appearance than a facelift.

Many people get confused with the term face and neck liposuction. The area where the procedure is performed is actually below the jawbone, a small area in the cheeks and the jowls. No matter a man's age, excess fat under the jawline can make a man look older, chubbier and less athletic. Liposuction can help remedy this safely and easily.

Fatty jowls can make a man look much older than he is. Additionally, subcutaneous fat in the cheeks can make a man look fat. Because this is usually inherited, diet and exercise often do not help. This is where liposuction can step in and correct the issue.


Who are the Best Candidates for Double Chin Removal with Liposuction?

In order for liposuction to be successful, men should have firm skin that is still elastic. For best results, the man should be physically healthy and close to their ideal weight. While age should not be a factor, it can impact the final results. As you age the elasticity in the skin can diminish, which negatively impact the end result. Those with elasticity in the skin will have a smoother, tighter finished result.

The best candidates for a Melbourne liposuction have good muscle tone and skin elasticity and are in overall good health. Men who are unhappy with their appearance and have excess fat in the neck region benefit the most from this procedure.

To help you determine if you are an ideal candidate for liposuction in the face and neck, schedule a consultation with a Melbourne cosmetic doctor.

FAQ about Neck Lift Liposuction

What do I need to do to prepare for neck lift?

No preparation is needed before the liposuction procedure; however, if you are a smoker, you should stop smoking 2 weeks prior to the procedure to help reduce the risk of complications.

What happens during the procedure?

The liposuction itself is pretty straightforward. Anaesthesia will be administered, then the neck will be injected with a tumescent solution. This solution helps decrease bleeding and provides pain relief. Then, the surgeon will make small incisions behind your ear. Our Melbourne clinic liposuction doctor will insert the thin liposuction cannula into the incision and the fat will be removed. Generally, the incisions used for the procedure do not require sutures. Leaving these incisions open allows for drainage and helps reduce swelling and bruising. Absorbent pads are placed and a compression garment is worn for 18 to 36 hours.

What is the recovery process for neck lift?

Most patients feel better the next day; however, our Melbourne cosmetic surgeons recommend wearing a compression neck garment for two weeks. This garment must be worn around the clock during this time. It may be a little embarrassing and awkward to wear this out in public, it helps improve the results of the procedure and helps ensure that the results are good.

The risks, although rare, include bleeding, swelling, infection and blog clots.The operating suite at your Melbourne liposuction doctor is state of the art.
