FACE AND NECK LIPOSUCTION DECATUR, AL
With his advanced knowledge of facial anatomy and experience with state-of-the-art techniques, Dr. Ben Light can achieve beautiful, natural-looking results for his liposuction patients. He performs all liposuction (including face and neck liposuction) at his facial plastic surgery practice in Decatur, Alabama, as a stand-alone procedure or in conjunction with facelift surgery, blepharoplasty, or other surgical corrections.
WHAT IS LIPOSUCTION?
Dr. Light can reduce excess fat deposits using a specialized surgical vacuum known as a cannula. With this device, he injects fluid into the chin, neck, jowls, or other targeted areas. The fluid helps break up the excess fat and makes it easier to suction out through the cannula.
Liposuction for jowls can be an effective treatment, especially in young patients with pliable skin. When deep tissue sags, creating unsightly jowls, but the skin remains taut, jowl liposuction can be a successful treatment. But if the expanded skin is lax, Dr. Light suggests a facelift.
Cheek liposuction employs a suction device to resolve excess fat cells in the cheeks. The results include a face appearing leaner and less full. Cheek liposuction is an outpatient procedure, and Dr. Light can use various techniques to eliminate the fat.
LIPOSUCTION OF THE NECK AND JOWLS
Jowl and neck liposuction involves creating tiny, two-millimeter incisions in the treatment area to insert the cannula to break up and manipulate unwanted fat cells. Dr. Light then suctions this fat out via the cannula. A neck and jowl liposuction can be a stand-alone procedure or done concurrently with another cosmetic treatment for optimal results.
BENEFITS OF FACE AND NECK LIPOSUCTION
Face and neck liposuction can help reduce aging signs such as sagging jowls and a double chin. Patients in their 30s and 40s whose skin is still somewhat elastic can experience significant rejuvenation with liposuction alone. Older patients may receive the most benefits by combining liposuction with a facelift and/or other procedures. Some patients choose to undergo liposuction rather than facelift surgery because it is not as invasive. There is less risk of scarring; however, Dr. Light is skilled at performing both procedures safely and effectively.
