With his advanced knowledge of facial anatomy and experience with state-of-the-art techniques, Dr. Ben Light is able to achieve beautiful, natural-looking results for his liposuction patients. He performs liposuction at his facial plastic surgery practice in Decatur Alabama as a stand-alone procedure or in conjunction with facelift surgery, blepharoplasty, or other treatments.
Face and Neck Liposuction – The Procedure
In face and neck liposuction, excess fat deposits are removed using a specialized surgical vacuum known as a cannula. With this device, Dr. Light injects fluid into the chin, neck, jowls, or other targeted areas. The fluid helps break up the excess fat so that it can then be suctioned out easily through the cannula.
Benefits of Face and Neck Liposuction
Face and neck liposuction can help reverse the signs of aging such as sagging jowls and a double chin. Patients in their thirties and forties whose skin is still somewhat elastic can experience significant rejuvenation with liposuction alone. Older patients may receive the most benefits by combining liposuction with facelift and/or other procedures. Some patients choose to undergo liposuction rather than facelift surgery because it is not as invasive and there is less risk of scarring; however, Dr. Light is skilled at performing both procedures safely and effectively.
Recovery from Liposuction
Patients can expect to resume their normal activities within one week of surgery. Our doctor and staff will provide you with detailed instructions to follow during your recovery period to minimize bruising, swelling, and discomfort.
