Maintaining a healthy bodyweight is essential to your well-being. Not only will your lifespan increase, your confidence will improve, and you may find that fashionable clothing fits better and flatters your body shape. However, facial fat can be difficult to lose through diet and exercise alone. You may find that although your overall silhouette is slimmer, you still have “chipmunk cheeks” or the appearance of a double chin.
In the era of social media and online dating, looking your best in a facial profile picture is essential to progressing socially and romantically. If your features are hidden behind a layer of unsightly fatty tissue, you may feel less inclined to share photos of yourself.
When speaking with someone in person or via video chat, you may avoid smiling broadly or lowering your chin to avoid drawing attention to unsightly fat deposits. A lack of confidence in your appearance can become devastating to your romantic and social life, and cause you to experience symptoms of anxiety and depression.
If you struggle with stubborn fat deposits on the face and neck, facial lipo contouring could be your solution to a slimmer and more defined visage.
How Does Facial Lipo Contouring Work?
To undergo facial lipo contouring, your surgeon will numb your face with a local anesthetic to reduce discomfort during the procedure. A small incision is made either behind the ear or under the chin, depending on the targeted area for fat removal. The submental fat is then broken up and suctioned away.
The entire surgery takes around one and a half hours to complete. Afterward, you may experience some bruising around the incision area, and you will need approximately five days to recover. A slimmer, more proportionate facial outline will emerge after around three months, and results will continue to improve for up to one year.
Facial lipo contouring is a delicate procedure, and requires the hands of an experienced surgeon to produce the best results with minimal scarring.
