Facial Liposuction Aliso Viejo

When to consider facial liposuction

You’ve no doubt heard that liposuction is a tremendously successful procedure for eliminating stubborn love handles, saddle bags and other bulges that refuse to budge, even after rigorous workouts and countless reps of target exercises. But are you aware that this minimally invasive treatment also is a remarkable tool for sculpting and refining the contours of your face and neckline?

Facial liposuction involves removing fatty deposits from the areas around your cheeks, chin or neck, reshaping your face to refine your profile and give your features a more defined appearance. An increasing number of Robinson Facial Plastic Surgery patients are opting for this safe procedure, which produces natural looking results with many of the same benefits as a traditional facelift, but with minimal scarring and much less downtime.

Facial liposuction is minor surgery that Dr. Robinson performs in-office. He’ll use local anesthesia to numb the area and light sedation to increase your comfort during the procedure, which typically takes 45 minutes to an hour. He’ll start by making a small incision, either beneath your chin near your lower jaw or inside your mouth where your lower lip meets your gums. Then he’ll insert a thin tube (called a micro-cannula) into the opening and guide it to the targeted area. As he gently manipulates this precision instrument, it delivers pulsating water to loosen excess fat from the surrounding tissue, which it simultaneously extracts along with the fluid.

Before you go home, Dr. Robinson will apply sterile bandages to absorb drainage from the incision, and fit you with a compression garment that you’ll wear for 36-48 hours to protect the surgical wound. Occasionally he uses sutures to close the cannula opening; if you require stitches, Dr. Robinson will remove them at a follow-up appointment a few days after your procedure. You may experience some mild discomfort, swelling or bruising during the healing process, which is easily controlled with mild medication. Any post-surgical symptoms should subside within a week or ten days, at which point you’ll be cleared to resume normal activities.

You’ll see increasingly noticeable facial contours as the swelling decreases, but it may take three or four months before the final results of the doctor’s artistic handiwork are fully revealed. The dramatic yet subtle outcome of facial liposuction will rejuvenate your appearance, give you a boost, and possibly even have your friends wondering if you lost a few extra pounds!

Patient Testimonials

Dr. Robinson changed my life...

Dr. Robinson changed my life. He was recommended to me as I had never had any type of work done and he exceeded my expectations. The procedures that Dr. Robinson performed clearly took 15 years off. I am 55 and I constantly get shocked responses from people who think I am 15 years younger. The work was subtle and my experience with the surgery and the healing process was very positive. I cannot thank Dr. Robinson enough for giving me back my youth.
