Liposuction of the face and neck can:

  • Remove unwanted fat around the cheeks, under the chin, and the neck
  • Reduce a double chin to improve the angle between the chin and the neck
  • Sculpt and accentuate the jawline to bring balance to facial features

Who is a good candidate for face and neck liposuction?

A facial contouring and liposuction procedure is ideal if you are frustrated by stubborn fullness underneath your jaw or desire a subtle contour of your facial and neck appearance. A good candidate for liposuction in Jacksonville is someone who has fatty pockets but good skin elasticity. It is important to understand that liposuction is not a treatment for obesity or sagging skin. If you have firm, elastic skin, you will have better results. Skin that is soft and thin from stretch marks, weight loss or natural aging will not reshape as well. Patients who have sagging skin will benefit more from a face lift or neck lift procedure, which can be combined with liposuction for the best aesthetic outcome.

More Frequently Asked Questions

Facial liposuction procedures usually take one to two hours, depending on the areas being treated and amounts being suctioned. Patients are given a fluid pain reliever and epinephrine to restrict blood loss and bruising through a small incision. A thin tube (a cannula) attached to a machine creates a strong vacuum and Dr. Doolabh manipulates it within the fat layers under the skin, suctioning up the fat. Dr. Doolabh may also recommend a final application of Renuvion® Cosmetic Technology, a radiofrequency helium plasma treatment, to improve the appearance of lax skin in the neck and submental areas below the chin.

The cost of liposuction treatment will depend on your specific goals and the volume of excess fat you wish to have removed. To determine the exact cost of treatment, we invite you to schedule a personal consultation with Dr. Doolabh for liposuction of the face or neck in Jacksonville, FL. During your consultation, Dr. Doolabh will help develop a personalized plan to satisfy your unique cosmetic goals. The expected procedure cost can then be provided at that time.

After the procedure, patients may be required to wear a special supportive chin strap intermittently for two weeks. The strap compresses the skin to the new facial contours and helps reduce post-operative swelling. A small amount of swelling and bruising is normal after the procedure. The inflammation and swelling may continue for a few weeks following facial and neck liposuction.

You will begin to see a change in your face or chin contour over the next several weeks as the soft tissues continue to contract with the healing process.

You should be able to go back to work within one week after the procedure.
