Facial Liposuction for a More Youthful Looking Face

Despite maintaining a healthy lifestyle, strict diet and rigorous exercise, getting rid of unwanted fat deposits is difficult, especially from areas such as the face and neck. Facial liposuction can help restore a more youthful facial contour by removing unwanted fat deposits and tightening the skin. In established plastic surgery facilities, this procedure is performed using the minimally invasive, laser-enabled SmartLipo Triplex workstation. The treatment can effectively remove excess fat from under the chin, jaw line, neck, cheeks and jowls, tighten the skin, and rejuvenate the face and neck.

Facial Rejuvenation with Laser Liposuction Surgery

The area to be treated is first numbed with a tumescent local anesthetic, which allows the laser to function in a painless environment with minimal bleeding. The small cannula of the SmartLipo device is inserted through a tiny incision made in the treatment area. The device utilizes three powerful laser wavelengths, 1320nm, 1064nm and 1440nm. MultiPlex technology allows the plastic surgeon to combine two laser wavelengths in one optimal package. For instance, combining the 1440 nm and 1064 nm wavelengths enables greater disruption of fatty tissue with minimal patient downtime. The combination of 1064 nm and the 1320 nm wavelengths offer superior skin tightening through tissue coagulation and stimulation of new collagen production.

Laser energy directed at the fat deposits liquefies them, simultaneously coagulating the blood vessels. A suction device is then used to aspirate the liquefied fat easily, without causing much injury or trauma. The heat produced by the laser energy tightens the skin through collagen production.

The SmartLipo device comes with intelligent delivery systems such as SmartSense™ with ThermaGuide™ and ThermaView™, which help avoid overtreatment. SmartSense™ is an intelligent hand piece delivery system that distributes precise energy for optimal results. ThermaGuide™ has temperature monitoring capabilities to prevent burns and other complications associated with conventional laser lipolysis technology. ThermaView™is equipped with an infrared thermal camera that alerts when maximum recommended skin temperature is reached.
This surgery can be carried out as an outpatient procedure under local anesthesia. As the incisions are tiny, there will be only mild bruising and swelling. The recovery time is also minimal along with lesser risks and complications. Patients usually get back to normal and routine activities within a few days. Laser lipolysis using SmartLipo Triplex offers the following benefits:

>> Superior body sculpting
>> Lesser complications
>> Minimal downtime
>> Less visible scarring
>> Minimal bleeding and swelling
>> Longer lasting results

The PrecisionTx™ laser lift is another advanced minimally invasive option to rejuvenate the lower face and neck and improve facial wrinkles.

If you are considering facial liposuction, make sure to choose a qualified plastic surgeon who has experience in performing the procedure. Treatment in an AAAASF accredited plastic surgery facility is important for safe, standardized procedures. The right surgeon will discuss all aspects of the procedure, including the advantages and risks involved. It is also important for patients to maintain realistic expectation about the results.
