Facial Liposuction in Virginia Beach
In selected cases, facial liposuction, available in Virginia Beach by Dr. Ben Hugo, is an excellent way to remove extra fat deposits on the neck and below the chin.
Facial liposuction may be done as an outpatient procedure under local anesthesia and oral sedation. A thin, hollow tube (called a cannula) is used to gently suck out fat that is causing drooping and sagging of the neck. A thin, 2.4mm liposuction cannula is inserted through 3 micro entry ports hidden below the chin and behind the ear lobes. There is no cutting and no stitches involved in facial liposuction, and it is an easy recovery. You wear an elastic supportive strap below the chin continually for 48 hours, then at night for a week or two. You can return to work and normal activities within a few days of the facial liposuction procedure. Bruising and swelling are usually easily covered. Once these subside, you will notice an improved contour of the neck and chin with long-lasting results.
Liposuction of the neck is frequently combined with other facial procedures, such as a facelift, to provide optimal contours. Good results can be achieved by combining liposuction of the neck and laser skin resurfacing with fractional CO2 laser (DOT Therapy). The laser improves the wrinkles, fine lines and sun damage of the face, neck, eyelids and décolletage. This procedure can be done as an outpatient under local anesthesia and oral sedation.
