Facial Liposuction Guide

Updated on February 24, 2013

Introduction to Facial Liposuction

Facial liposuction is a general term for a type of cosmetic surgery that often involves the removal of fat cells from the neck, chin, and jowls.  The name of this operation can throw some people off, but most of the time fat cells are not removed directly from the face, although sometimes fat cells can be removed directly from facial areas.  That said, there are several different types of non surgical liposuction procedures that can be used in order to see this fat loss from the face, neck, chin, and jowls.  This can include tumescent liposuction, ultrasonic liposuction, or even the classic and popular Vaser Liposuction procedures.  These are by far and away the three most popular choices when looking at this particular type of cosmetic operations.  If you've been thinking about undergoing this then please read on to learn more about the many different popular and modern options that facial liposuction provides.

Facial Liposuction Costs

Facial liposuction costs can vary greatly depending on your region, doctor, and the preferred method of treatment.  Obviously since different cosmetic procedures go for different price ranges, it's impossible to figure out exact costs without knowing what technique you're going for.  There are many different facial liposuction options which gives the patient not only a wide variety of choices, but also a wide range of financial choice when it comes to pricing.  The good news for patients who need to have overly large jowls or that double chin removed is that often times these particular operations are some of the less expensive plastic surgery procedures on most markets.

There are many minor facial liposuction procedures that vary from the $1500-$3000 range, which is definitely on the lower side as far as low impact lipo goes.  The variance in the methods of liposuction that can be used is also a definite high quality plus here.  Vaser Liposuction is probably the most popular because it is modern, trendy, and very low impact.  However, there is also the chance that Vaser will be the most expensive of all the options, specifically because of the three points that have already been mentioned.  For some people this won't matter a lick, but if you are searching for affordable cosmetic surgery prices, then you might want to check out some of the other options that are available to you.

Don't let this warning scare you off.  There are many, many options available to individuals who are looking for affordable plastic surgery to help touch up those areas that need it, and you might be surprised how affordable different types of facial liposuction can truly be.

Methods of Facial Liposuction

As has already been mentioned a few times, there are several different methods that can be used in order to achieve the desired fat reduction results that facial liposuction has to offer.  Since the Vaser option was discussed before, we won't go into that one too much in this section.  If you want to know more about that one in particular, click on the link to my Vaser Liposuction hub in that earlier section.

But there is also the tumescent method, as well as the ultrasonic liposuction method.  Both of these types of cosmetic surgery can be used for facial liposuction, and each one offers advantages and disadvantages like any other.  The ultrasonic method uses ultrasonic waves to "vibrate" the fat cells and melt them away.  The tumescent method is similar and might seem a little redundant, but you need to remember that many different types of liposuction are similar to one another, or at least related.

Facial Liposuction, In Conclusion

In conclusion, there are many things to think about before undergoing facial liposuction.  If you're just looking to tighten some wrinkles, than this is the wrong procedure.  Botox will take care of that.  However, if you really want liposuction for the neck, chin, or jowls - then facial liposuction could very well be the best option for you.  There are always many considerations, from the safety and possible side effects of the procedure, to finding a qualified expert.  And of course, there's always the constant effort to find affordable cosmetic surgery prices.  Having the right facial liposuction procedure lined up doesn't help if you can't afford it.  However if you do your research, make sure to compare prices, and understand the entire process then you are likely to be very happy with the end facial liposuction results.

      @ocbill, there are a lot of people who would fit Vaser Liposuction under the category of Smart Liposuction. There's some semantic arguments over whether the two should be linked together, but I think more or less these two types of liposuction are pretty darned similar.

      @Nancy, I here you, lol. The furthest I'm willing to go with cosmetic surgery is maybe freezing a few warts or skin tags off. But I'm tired of seeing all liposuction reviews coming from websites made by liposuction doctors, so I thought I'd start writing.

      @Research, yeah, this research made a big difference to me, too. The thought of facial work seemed scary, but I can see the jowls, chin, and neck. That makes a lot more common sense to me.

      Thank you all for your comments on my facial liposuction review.

      wow, first I heard of facial liposuction, thanks for explaining how its the fat cells around the face, it can be a little alarming until you learn how it is actually performed.

      interesting article. I thought smart lipo would be in there too for the face. I guess I need to read more on the subject.
