Liposuction

 

One of the many changes that occur in the aging face is the deposition of fatty tissue in unwanted areas.  Liposuction can help to contour the face and neck by selectively removing these fatty deposits.  The most commonly treated areas include the neck, area under the chin, cheeks, and jowls.  This can be performed in isolation in younger patients.  In patients of more advanced age the skin loses its elasticity and frequently liposuction is done in conjunction with other facial rejuvenation procedures.  Whether you are a candidate for liposuction and whether this would be part of your rejuvenation plan can be discussed with Dr. Guy in consultation.
