Liposuction of the face can be beneficial for most patients wanting to remove fat in their face, however, younger patients (between the age of 30-50 years old), whose main concern may not be sagging skin but just a general amount of fat that they would like removed, are the ideal candidates.
To achieve the desired look of a slimmer jawline and facial structure, small cannulas are used for the micro-liposuction to precisely contour the lower half of the face. As facial liposuction is a highly advanced procedure, the patient must have various factors which will make them a suitable candidate, such as the amount of superficial fat and location of the fat, as well as the structure of the face and skin elasticity.
The procedure is performed with great precision using very small cannulas that are designed for micro-liposuction. For liposuction of the jowls, a small needle is inserted externally, and the surgeon then uses manual pressure to suction out the fat from the lower region of the face. This is done using specialised micro-cannula equipment.
