While many people admire the dramatically high cheekbones of female celebrities like Angela Bassett and Jennifer Lopez or the strong, sculpted jaw lines of actors like Henry Cavill and Brad Pitt, not all of us are fortunate enough to be born with these enviable facial proportions. Through facial liposuction, Dr. Jeffrey Schmidt can use his surgical skill to give you the chiseled facial features genetics couldn’t. What does this technique involve, and how could it benefit you?
Understanding Facial Liposuction
While you’ve almost certainly heard of liposuction, you might have assumed it was only for eliminating fat from traditional problem areas like “love handles” or a “muffin top.” However, as an extensively trained, double board-certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Schmidt has an artistic eye for refining facial contours by removing and reshaping unwanted fat accumulation in the face.
When performing facial liposuction, Dr. Schmidt relies on a technique called suction-assisted liposuction to create optimal results. This approach allows him to remove precise amounts of fat tissue in areas where too much has accumulated, such as your neck, cheeks, and chin. Then, he remodels the remaining fat cells to restore your desired facial appearance. Combining facial liposuction with complimentary facial procedures, such as a facelift or Puregraft, can enhance your results, refresh your appearance, and make you look years younger.
To ensure any resulting scarring heals as discreetly as possible, Dr. Schmidt will make the small incisions necessary to perform facial liposuction behind the ears or within your skin’s natural creases.
Can Facial Liposuction Help You Look Younger?
The accumulation of unwanted fat cells in the face and neck area is one of the earliest signs of aging. Often, this fat fails to respond to diet and exercise, which can be frustrating. As gravity’s effects relentlessly continue shifting these fat cells downward, your appearance may change in unwanted ways, including:
- A double chin
- A turkey neck
- An overall lack of definition in your facial features
Removing fat from these areas can provide you with a smoother, more youthful appearance. In slimming your face through liposuction, Dr. Schmidt will remove years, along with unwanted fat cells. Trimming away fat cells from your cheeks, chin, and neck will also enhance your facial contours, whether you are viewing your face in profile or straight ahead. Highlight your best features and send your self-confidence soaring to new heights with facial liposuction.
