When you think of liposuction, do you picture a procedure that’s designed just for the removal of body fat?  You’re not alone – liposuction is still one of the most popular body contouring techniques, with many patients choosing to address unwanted fat in their thighs, stomach, arms, and buttocks.

But did you know that liposuction is also a great procedure for patients looking to target and treat unwanted facial fat?

Facial liposuction is quickly becoming a highly sought-after treatment at South Coast Plastic Surgery in Irvine, CA.  As the premier destination for the best body and facial contouring procedures in Orange County, South Coast Plastic Surgery is pleased to offer facial liposuction to patients who may be concerned about excess facial fat.

Wondering what the benefits of this innovative procedure might be?  Take a look:

  • It quickly treats unwanted fat around the chin and jowls – including the dreaded double chin! Submental fat can be difficult to treat through diet and exercise alone, which is why facial liposuction can be a better alternative for treating this stubborn fat.
  • The procedure can create facial contours that help you look younger and more refreshed. Many patients often combine this treatment with a brow lift, eyelid lift, or even a face lift to create more dramatic and noticeable results.
  • The surgery is surprisingly fast, with quick downtime. The procedure takes about an hour to perform, while the recovery period lasts for just a week.  Patients will need to keep their heads elevated while sleeping in order to help with swelling and bruising.

Ideal candidates have good skin laxity, which means skin will snap back to normal once the excess fat has been removed.  If you’re ready to get rid of that stubborn fat, it’s time to schedule a consultation at South Coast Plastic Surgery in Irvine, CA!
