One of the most common areas where men and women struggle to lose fat is the face, chin, and neck. Even with a healthy lifestyle, diet, and exercise, stubborn fat can make it difficult to achieve a slim, well-contoured facial profile. Facial liposuction is a minimally invasive, facial plastic surgery procedure that can help to provide men and women with a healthier, younger, and completely natural appearance. Such procedures are performed in office under local anesthesia and are often combined with complementary procedures such as face/neck lift and chin implants (mentoplasty).
Dr. Giancarlo Zuliani is a double board certified facial plastic surgeon who understands the difficulties many men and women face with stubborn facial fat. Age, genetics, and other factors can make it nearly impossible to address problems such as a double chin or overly full cheeks despite efforts to eat healthy and exercise regularly. He offers men and women a solution to stubborn facial fat by performing personalized facial liposuction procedures to remove the unwanted fat.
Facial liposuction is a procedure performed to reduce stubborn facial fat for men and women who are at or close to their ideal weight. This is not a weight loss procedure and should not be used as an alternative to diet and exercise. Dr. Zuliani can use this procedure to help reduce resistant areas of fat in the cheeks, neck, chin/jawline (double chin), and general areas of the face.
Dr. Zuliani performs this fat reduction procedure under local anesthesia (although general anesthesia may be used in some cases). A small incision is made near the target area where excess fat is to be removed. A small cannula (thin tube) is then inserted through the incision and into the underlying layer of fat. Connected to a surgical pump, Dr. Zuliani then uses the cannula to break up and remove the problem fat cells from the face, leaving behind a slimmer, well-contoured appearance.
Your facial liposuction procedure will be performed by Dr. Zuliani onsite at Zuliani Facial Aesthetics in Bloomfield Hills or at a nearby accredited hospital or surgery center.
The results of your facial liposuction with Dr. Zuliani will be immediately noticeable. You will realize a slimming of the treated area, although there may be some minor swelling or redness during the initial days of healing. Depending on the extent of your facial liposuction procedure, you should feel well enough to return to work within one week following your surgery. This recovery time will allow swelling and bruising to subside.
Facial liposuction can help to create a healthier facial appearance and could dramatically reduce the size of (or eliminate) a pesky double chin when diet and exercise are not enough. While the removed fat is gone for good, it is important to realize that it is still possible to gain weight. Dr. Zuliani’s patients can continue to enjoy long-lasting results from their facial liposuction by continuing to live a healthy lifestyle.
