Facial Liposuction and Fat Transfer is performed in the same manner as body liposuction—the use of a cannula beneath the skin to contour fat except it is on the face. Your surgeon may use a simple cannula or even a powered device such as a laser based system. In all cases however, this must be done carefully and expertly to minimize the potential for contour irregularities (dimples, divots or worse). It’s important to remember that as we get older we generally lose facial fat so you would not want to remove a lot of fat and then look “empty” or “drawn” as you get older. The most common area that I treat are the jowls, very large cheeks, the area in front of the ears, and the neck.
Depressions on other areas of the body can also be corrected through a procedure called autologous (meaning from the same individual) fat transplantation. This procedure can help contour the face, lift the cheeks and chin, and correct facial or body deformities.
