Face Liposuction in Los Angeles, CA

If you think your face is fuller looking than you’d like and makes you look heavier than you are, face liposuction may be the answer to achieve a more defined facial structure. Kian Karimi, MD, FACS, and Chester Griffiths, MD, FACS, double board-certified plastic surgeons at Rejuva Medical Aesthetics, perform face liposuction on men and women in Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, Brentwood and the surrounding communities in California who want a more slender and contoured face.

What is Face Liposuction?

Face liposuction is the process of reducing the amount of fat in the cheeks and midface area that tend to make people have a fuller or chubby appearance. Also called “chipmunk cheeks,” a full midface area can add pounds to someone’s appearance causing a negative self-image. This procedure is an excellent alternative to more invasive facial surgery procedures to achieve a thinner face.

Benefits of Face Liposuction

Face liposuction is an alternative to more invasive surgeries and offers the following benefits:

  • Less recovery and downtime
  • Removes fat cells from cheek area
  • Very minimal scarring
  • Less risk of infection
  • Quick and long-lasting results

Who is an Ideal Candidate for Face Liposuction?

Ideal candidates for face liposuction have excess fat deposits in the lower half of their faces especially in the cheek area with good elasticity in the skin. Because of the need for facial skin in good condition, younger patient are typically better candidates. They must also have a realistic expectation about the results, as they are not dramatic.

What Do I Do to Prepare for My Face Liposuction?

Before undergoing face liposuction, it is necessary to have a consultation to ensure you are a candidate for the procedure. It is important to have a smooth complexion with lots of skin elasticity as well as be in overall good health and have no underlying conditions.

What Should I Expect on the Day of My Face Liposuction?

Thin cannulas are inserted into very small incisions made inside the mouth. Once in place, the cannulas are moved back and forth to break up and suction out excess fat cells. Dr. Karimi and Dr. Griffiths also sculpt the cheek area to give them slightly more contour. Once complete, they suture the small incisions, and the procedure is complete.

Face liposuction is typically performed with only a local anesthetic with an intravenous sedative. If performed with other surgeries, general anesthesia may be used. Dr. Karimi and Dr. Griffiths talk with you about your anesthesia options so that they can make an informed decision.

How Long Does It Take to Perform Face Liposuction?

Most face liposuction procedures are performed within one to two hours depending on whether other cosmetic treatments are done at the same time.

What to Expect After Face Liposuction

Once complete, a special dressing is applied to the face to protect and support it for several days following the procedure. There is some minor discomfort, swelling and bruising following face liposuction, which is easily controlled with pain medications. Most people return to work within a week as the swelling and bruising subside.

Will I Have Scars from Face Liposuction?

Since the incisions for face liposuction are made inside the mouth, there are no visible scars following the surgery. Additionally, the mouth heals very quickly and typically leaves very minimal or no scarring.

When Will I See the Results?

As the swelling subsides, the results become more visible. It may take up to a month to see the full results from facial liposuction. While the results of face liposuction are permanent, other fat cells can expand from excessive weight gain.

How Much Does Face Liposuction Cost in Los Angeles?

The cost of face liposuction is different with each patient based on the extent of the area to be treated and whether other treatments are done at the same time. During a consultation, we will go over the costs involved as well as payment and financing options.
