Face liposuction can be a good way to create a more youthful appearance. In some instances, patients will choose face liposuction over a facelift, simply because of the fact that a face liposuction tends to create more natural results. Let us take a closer look at face liposuction, how it is performed and what you should really consider as a patient.
What Liposuction Technique Is Most Commonly Used For The Face?
Tumescent liposuction is the most common technique used to remove fat from the face. The tumescent liposuction technique also offers more benefits for most patients than other liposuction techniques, given the fact that a tumescent liposuction reduces chances of complications and is accompanied with fewer risks.
Women who undergo a tumescent liposuction to remove fat from the face can also combine the treatment with laser resurfacing, which is used to reduce wrinkles. However, before you choose a treatment, it is recommended to speak to Dr Lanzer about your expectations and your desired goals.
Am I a Good Candidate For This Procedure?
Patients who maintain a healthy lifestyle and regular exercise routine are the best candidates for the tumescent liposuction procedure. By maintaining a healthy diet plan and exercising regularly, it is easier for the surgeon and the patient to find the areas containing persistent fat cells and the areas that are most suitable for the face liposuction treatment. In addition to that, it is also less likely that these patients will encounter fat returning to these specific areas. If a healthy lifestyle is maintained, the results of the tumescent liposuction on the face should be more long term.
We do need to mention that ageing plays a role in the effectiveness of the tumescent liposuction procedure. Tumescent liposuction can provide you with a much more youthful appearance, but it will not tackle any persistent wrinkles you might be dealing with. Before you choose this procedure, it is recommended to talk to Dr Lanzer about the result you wish to obtain. Based on your answers, Dr Lanzer can recommend a course of action.

What Can I Expect From My First Consultation At The Dr Lanzer Clinic?
During your first consultation, Dr Lanzer will listen to your concerns and discuss the desired result you wish to obtain. He will also assess your weight fluctuations over the years, your fitness level and ask about any medical conditions you may be suffering from.
After the initial conversation, Dr Lanzer will start evaluating your face and evaluate the amount of muscle, fat and the elasticity of your skin. Based on his findings, Dr Lanzer will be able to tell you if you are a good candidate for the liposuction procedure.
How Is A Tumescent Liposuction Procedure Performed?
At the start of the procedure, a small incision will be made in the targeted area. Once the incision has been made, Dr Lanzer will insert the tumescent fluid in the target area with the help of a small tube or cannula. When the fat has been broken down with the help of the tumescent fluid, Dr Lanzer will gently remove the fatty tissue from the face.
The procedure itself usually takes one to two hours and depends on the amount of fat to be removed and the target area the surgeon will be working on. After the procedure, the patient will need a ride home, considering the local anaesthetic can still be present in the body for a considerable amount of time after the procedure.
Which Areas can I Treat on the face?
The most dramatic results are seen after liposuction of the neck. Nearly all the fat is removed, and the skin retracts and takes on a new tightness. Another area that is treated is the Jowls at the lower sides of the chin. Sometimes fat needs redistribution and it is suctioned from one area and injected into the cheeks or lips.
What Can I Expect After The Face Liposuction Procedure?
Most patients will experience slight bruising and a little discomfort after the face liposuction procedure. Most patients start to see visible improvements a month after the procedure, although improvements may continue to appear up until a few months after the face liposuction procedure.
Most of the bruising will disappear in one to two days, this may vary from patient to patient. It is recommended to stop smoking before you have the procedure and not to smoke after the procedure either, since this may hinder the recovery process greatly. There may be deep bruising that feels hard. Smoking before the procedure can also cause more bleeding and increases the risk during the procedure as well. Patients who do decide to smoke before the procedure may end up with more bruising and a recovery process that is significantly slower compared to other patients.
Are There Other Options To Make My Face Look Younger?
Cosmetic surgery procedures have evolved quite a bit over the last ten years, so we can do many things to provide our patients with a more youthful appearance. In addition to the face liposuction, patients can also choose to go for a face and neck lift.
The facelift procedure is meant to give patients a more youthful appearance and the results usually last up to ten years. The procedure is usually executed by removing excess skin, which can take a lot of years of the face. However, additional procedures may be required to obtain the results you want, this can include eyelid surgery, chin implants, fat injections and other common procedures.
At the Dr Lanzer clinic, we try to keep the risk for the patient to an absolute minimum. Dr Lanzer will often advise a procedure that can take care of multiple problems, instead of having to undergo multiple procedures to obtain a similar result. Even though multiple anti-ageing procedures are not that uncommon, Dr Lanzer will try to keep the amount of procedures to an absolute minimum.
For more information about the facelift and neck lift, please head over to our information pages on the subject. On our website, you will also find additional information about other procedures that may be beneficial for your situation. However, to get a better idea of which procedure would be best for you, we recommend booking a consultation at the Dr Lanzer clinic before deciding to pick one specific procedure.
Is Face Liposuction the Right Choice for Me?
Face liposuction procedures are chosen for a specific reason; this can be to reduce some signs of ageing as well as reconstructing the neckline. Therefore, each patient must be evaluated by Dr Lanzer to determine if face liposuction is the right choice for you.
In some cases, there might be some procedures that are more appropriate for your specific problem than face liposuction. Naturally, the surgeon will recommend alternative procedures if he deems them more appropriate.
Before you obtain any procedure, it is always important to convey your wishes to the cosmetic surgery. Based on your goals, the surgeon can determine the appropriate steps to take and recommend a specific treatment.
