Facial Laser Liposuction: Risks and Benefits

By Edited Nov 5, 2015 0 0

A build up of fat around the facial area can drastically change the way you look. Because of the demand, scientists are persistently searching for ways to combat the effects of excessive fat around the face and chin. Laser liposuction is most ingenious solution to date and is one of the best ways to enhance the appearance of the face. It removes fat whilst leaving the skin taut. Liposuction of the face is especially effective when used in conjunction with other surgical procedures.

When a surgeon performs liposuction on your chin or jowls, a small incision is made. This is always done in the least conspicuous area, often around the ear on the hair line. The laser is used to melt away the fat. The fat is then suctioned out through the tiny incision. Because the face has very little fat the results of this type of surgery are often seen quickly by patients, even through the distortion of post-operative swelling.

Laser removal of fat from the facial area is as permanent as it can be. Most patients having had this procedure will likely never need to repeat the procedure. It leaves them with a thinner face and tighter skin, with little future maintenance required.

Unfortunately, liposuction to the face requires a longer recovery period than other liposuction procedures. The face is often red and sore after the procedure and strong pain relief is required to ease the discomfort of these symptoms. Recovery from liposuction takes approximately three weeks, although if the liposuction is performed in conjunction with other cosmetic procedures the need for a longer recovery period may arise.

Waking up from the surgery patients offer succumb to dizziness, nausea and chills. Patients also suffer a great deal of discomfort around the targeted area of the liposuction, although pain relievers are proscribed to ease these symptoms. During the initial stage of recovery patients are placed under observation in a post-operative area. This is only necessary until the effect of the anesthetic has worn off. Driving after the procedure is not possible so patients must arrange alternative transportation.

Immediately after facial liposuction, your surgeon will also recommend certain dietary

restrictions. This is due to the increased risk of infection involved with facial surgery. And you don't want your face to get infected now do you. Water intake is also important to keep fluid levels up, but eating and drinking after this type of surgery can be difficult so a level of weight loss is always to be expected. In cases where eating is particularly painful narcotic pain medications are often prescribed to help patients eat.

The risks involved with laser liposuction are extremely limited but, as with all surgical procedures, a death rate of one in five thousand still exists. Because of this it is important to tell your plastic surgeon of any health issues you may have prior to undergoing the procedure. You should also do your homework and make sure to check the credentials of your chosen surgeon. With enough research you too can enjoy the benefits of laser liposuction.
