What is Facial Liposuction?
Facial liposuction is a cosmetic procedure that removes excess fat from the face and neck area. It is used to improve the appearance of the face by reducing the amount of fat in areas such as the jowls, cheeks, chin, and neck. Whether a patient has been unable to achieve fat loss through diet and exercise, or they have a genetic predisposition to accumulating fat in the face, facial liposuction is an effective solution. It can help patients achieve a more defined and sculpted appearance in the face.

How is Facial Liposuction Performed?
At Garcia Facial Plastic Surgery, we usually perform facial liposuction with only a local anesthetic and an intravenous sedative, except in cases where patients are undergoing additional surgeries in the same treatment session. As the procedure begins, Dr. Garcia will make small incisions inside the mouth or under the chin. Scars inside the mouth will be virtually unnoticeable, while any incisions under the chin will leave miniscule and inconspicuous scars. Through these incisions, we’ll use a small tube to suction out fat from the lower face and neck. Once the fat is removed, it will produce a more contoured appearance in the face and neck.

Frequently Asked Questions
How much does facial liposuction cost In Jacksonville
The average cost of facial liposuction varies from one community to the other with some small variations. Factors such as the facility where the facial liposuction will be performed and the type of anesthesia used will influence the final cost of the surgery. Jacksonville facial liposuction surgery varies in price range according to these factors. Garcia Facial Plastic Surgery makes facial surgery procedures available and affordable for everyone.

Is facial liposuction good for chubby cheeks?
Facial liposuction can help address stubborn fat in the lower face, which may contribute to the appearance of chubby cheeks. However, facial liposuction is most often used to address stubborn fat in the neck, jowls and lower face. Patients who are primarily concerned with the appearance of chubby cheeks may want to consider buccal fat removal, which removes the buccal fat pads responsible for creating a full appearance in the cheeks.
What is recovery from facial liposuction like?
After undergoing facial liposuction, patients may experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort. Pain medication may be prescribed to manage any pain or discomfort. A compression garment will be worn for several days after the procedure to help reduce swelling and aid in the healing process. Most patients can return to work and normal activities within a week or two after the procedure. However, strenuous physical activity should be avoided for at least four to six weeks. Full results of facial liposuction may take several months to become apparent, as the swelling continues to subside and the skin adjusts to its new contours.
Can facial liposuction be combined with other cosmetic procedures?
Yes, facial liposuction can be combined with other cosmetic procedures to achieve more comprehensive benefits. Some common procedures that are often combined with facial liposuction include:
- Facelift – A facelift can help to address sagging skin and wrinkles, and when combined with facial liposuction, can create a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.
- Neck lift – A neck lift can help to tighten loose skin and muscles in the neck area, and when combined with facial liposuction, can help reduce the appearance of a double chin and provide greater results in the neck area.
- Chin augmentation – Chin augmentation involves the use of implants to enhance the size and shape of the chin, and when combined with facial liposuction, can help to create a more balanced and harmonious facial appearance.
