Facial liposculpture is a unique procedure that uses very fine cannulas to remove problem fatty areas of the face. It is particularly effective for treating heavy cheeks and nasolabial folds, the fat forming jowls that cause fullness around the mouth and hang below the jawline, and troublesome fat collections beneath the chin and neck. Liposculpture also provides skin tightening which can help avoid larger incisions that are needed for the removal of extra skin.
Dr. Shapiro, a facial liposculpture specialist, regularly uses Vaser technology for his liposculpture techniques. Vaser is gentle on delicate areas like the face and neck and its ultrasonic technology melts fat before it is gently suctioned away, directly targeting fat cells instead of nerves and blood vessels. Vaser also activates skin tightening, so not only is facial fat removed, but skin is also rejuvenated.
The recovery from facial liposculpture is easy and comfortable with very little bruising or swelling. Facial liposculpture is always performed through very few, very small incisions that are hidden in natural creases in the face. Fat transfer can be performed through a minute injecting cannula, which leaves no visible scar.
