On a daily basis, my practice receives calls from patients interested in the most popular procedures: breast augmentation, tummy tuck and facelift. Naples men and women, however, often haven’t heard about a short, simple procedure that can dramatically transform their appearance. That procedure is Liposculpture – liposuction performed on the face and neck.
Liposculpture is particularly advantageous if you have excess fat around your neck and jowls. After liposculpture, you’ll have a more-contoured, better-defined neck and face that can make you look and feel slimmer and younger.
Here’s what is involved in a liposculpture procedure:
- I keep patients comfortable by using mild or deep sedation anesthesia. In addition, because I use a dilute lidocaine solution during the procedure, patients experience almost no pain after liposculpture.
- I make tiny incisions under the chin and behind each earlobe, so scars are almost invisible.
- It takes only 30 minutes to 1 hour to extract the excess fat. To minimize stress on the surrounding tissues, I use the PowerX®, a power-assisted liposuction device that provides optimal control while allowing for quick treatment.
- Most patients can return immediately to their regular routines.
Because only minimal swelling occurs, you can see the results almost immediately. After the swelling has subsided, your neck and face will look refreshed and smoothly sculpted.
