Face Liposuction


Liposuction treatments remain one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the world, with almost 250,000 people having undergone surgery last year. Face lifts (often performed in conjunction with face liposuction) also saw a total surpassing 125,000 procedures last year.

Liposuction should be seen as a treatment for removing stubborn fat pockets, not a cure for obesity. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle, diet and exercising will ensure that the results of all liposuction procedures last longer.

What is Face Liposuction?

Face liposuction is a popular cosmetic treatment that looks to enhance the appearance of your face by removing unwanted fat. The procedure is rarely performed in isolation and is commonly combined with other surgeries.

There are several different techniques that can be used to achieve a more youthful face, and no single technique works for all patients. Each face liposuction procedure is tailored to a patient’s specific requirements, but this will be discussed in detail during your surgical consultation.

Face liposuction is one of the most successful cosmetic procedures for removing fat and enhancing the appearance of your face. Patients are reminded that face liposuction is not an alternative to weight loss, nor can it treat cellulite or stretch marks.

Additionally, face liposuction is commonly combined with other surgical procedures to offer a more harmonious, natural-looking result. This is by no means compulsory but it is worth discussing with your surgical consultant during your in initial consultation.

What does Face Liposuction Involve?

Your treatment begins with a consultation with your selected surgeon at The McIndoe Centre. This is where you will be able to ask any questions surrounding your face liposuction procedure and learn more about the treatment process. Your surgeon will make markings on your face to help guide the surgery and also give you an indication of where the fat will be removed from and how you can expect your face to look post-surgery.

Small incisions are made around the face and a probing device (known as a cannula) is used to break up fat deposits in your face. A vacuum is used in conjunction with the cannula to remove the fat from your face. Your incisions are then sewn up and left to heal.

How Long does Face Liposuction Take?

The treatment time for face liposuction depends on the extent of your surgery and the other treatments included. If performed in isolation most face liposuction procedures take between one and two hours. However, this will be discussed in detail during your initial consultation.

How Much is Face Liposuction?

The price of your surgery depends entirely on your specific requirements. You will be given a price after your surgeon has assessed your face during your consultation.

Choosing your Surgeon

Choosing your surgeon is one of the most important parts of your liposuction journey. Liposuction procedures are very personal, so it’s important that you feel comfortable with your decision and your chosen surgeon.

It is unlikely that your face liposuction procedure will be covered by your insurance as it is considered an elective surgery. However, The McIndoe Centre are able to help with financing your face liposuction treatment. For more information on our payment options, please call us on 01342 488054.

Face Liposuction Aftercare

Full recovery time ranges from patient to patient, but full recovery is expected to be between four to five weeks.

What are the Benefits of Face Liposuction?

Face liposuction achieves good results in the hands of an experienced surgeon. Removing fat and potentially excess skin from your face will leave you looking healthier and more youthful. Combining this procedure with a mini facelift or other related procedures will further enhance the appearance of your face. This is something you can discuss during your consultation.
