Facial Laser Liposuction
Facial laser liposuction is a new alternative for facial skin tightening without the risk or downtime associated with traditional liposuction. It is a minimally-invasive cosmetic procedure that uses laser technology to rapidly dissolve localized pockets of fat in the lower face and neck, subsequently tightening the surrounding skin. Laser lipo is ideal for anyone considering a slimming cosmetic surgery that creates immediately visible results.
The Laser Liposuction Procedure
The laser lipo technique is one of the safest, most effective and comfortable procedures at Vargas Face and Skin and does not require the use of general anesthetic. Done in-office, Dr. Vargas will direct laser energy to specific areas of your lower face and/or neck, liquefying the fat cells while contouring your face. The targeted body fat is removed and the result is a firmer facial contour. The incision Dr. Vargas uses is so small, only a couple of stitches are used for closure at the end of the procedure. Recovery is faster with significantly shorter down time. Patients typically return to work and normal activities within a few days.
Patients choose liposuction to correct the following issues:
• Removes excessive fatty tissue in the neck region
• Improves neck skin which is loose but not hanging
• Improves definition at the jaw line and neck
For the neck and jowl liposuction procedures, a small (1-inch), well-hidden incision is made just under the chin through which the entire area can be addressed. Excess fat is removed via liposuction and the muscular sling is reapproximated. This gives extra smoothness to the skin while flattening the platysma muscle bands.
Another less invasive alternative for laser lipo is a procedure called InnerTyte. This in-office procedure utilizes the laser internally to tighten the skin. Because this procedure requires only small incisions with no sutures, it is ideal for someone who doesn't want to undergo surgery but would still like treatment for the lower face and neck.
Facial liposuction is a highly individualized procedure. In her approach to the procedure, Dr. Hannah Vargas employs a conservative touch – one that rejuvenates the appearance but does not appear overdone. During your consultation, she'll evaluate the area in question, take measurements and photos, as well as explain the best process for your needs.
