Enjoy Your Ideal Look at CosmetiCare

You eat right, exercise, and see your fitness regimen pay off with a toned, attractive body. But what about your face? Unfortunately, diet and exercise may not be as effective to slim areas of the face, neck, and cheeks. Liposuction, although originally designed to remove areas of fat primarily in the body, works amazingly on areas of the face as well.

This treatment can leave you with a toned and contoured look, and all the exciting self-confidence that comes along with showing off your ideal facial appearance. To learn more about how facial liposuction can help you love the way you look, reach out to CosmetiCare at our Newport Beach location and set up your consultation with a member of our team today.

The Ideal Candidate for Facial Lipo

Women and men from all walks of life have chosen facial liposuction at CosmetiCare in Orange County. When you visit us for your initial consultation, an expert member of our surgical team will get to know you, learn about your cosmetic goals, and get to know your personal lifestyle. This will help them recommend the treatment that is ideal for you and your desired results. We find that the ideal candidates for facial liposuction in Newport Beach tend to be:

  • Men and women who wish to eliminate excess fat in the face or neck.
  • Patients with good skin elasticity. Those with extremely loose or thin facial skin may require a different procedure, such as a facelift or neck lift, to correct their problem areas.
  • Those wishing to create a more well-defined neck or jawline by eliminating fat in these areas.

Facial Liposuction Techniques

We understand what a personal choice choosing to modify your face is and additionally, the process you’ll go through in making a final decision. Let us help shed light on the decisions you and your surgeon will make together, so you can understand the various techniques we may use to create your results.

Fluid Injected Liposuction

Tumescent Lipo allows for larger amounts of fat removal, with less bruising and swelling than traditional methods.

Ultrasonic-Assisted Liposuction

This technique utilizes sound waves to break up and liquefy fat deposits in what used to be more difficult spots to treat.

Power-Assisted Liposuction

PAL allows deeper tissue penetration through the use of a vibrating surgical wand, offering more precise results.

After Facial Liposuction

  • Mild discomfort, swelling, and bruising are normal for the first few days. 
  • Snug elastic bandages or compression garments may be needed for the first several days.
  • Most patients resume regular activities within about four to five days.
  • Swelling will continue to subside over a period of three to six weeks.
  • Strenuous activities should be avoided for about four weeks.
  • The results of facial liposuction are usually permanent.
  • Weight gain is the only thing that will change the look of your results. 
  • Some patients come back for fine-tuning, but the procedure should not be used as a weight-loss method.

Enjoying Your Results

Improved body contour can be noticed immediately in some patients, especially when treating saddlebags. However, swelling will improve dramatically after six weeks and continue to dissipate over the next six months. You’ll continue healing for up to a year, at which point your final results will become fully visible.

How long will Liposuction results last?

For optimal, long-lasting results from your facial liposuction procedure in Orange County, we recommend maintaining a healthy lifestyle. This should include eating healthy and working out once cleared by your surgeon post-procedure. When any amount of weight is gained after liposuction, it’s common to see a redistribution of fat – with new fat cells developing – in other areas of the body and can affect the treated area(s) as well. In most cases, even with slight weight gain, the treated area(s) will still look better than before liposuction.

Why isn’t exact surgical procedure pricing available on the website?

Every patient’s anatomy is different and the complexity of each surgery varies from patient to patient as well as the total time in the operating room. We are able to give you a general range & starting price for the procedure however a consultation with our plastic surgeons will give you a closer estimate.

Is liposuction a good way to lose weight? Should I lose weight before getting liposuction?

Liposuction at CosmetiCare in Newport Beach is not meant to be a “weight-loss” procedure but rather to help reshape and contour the treated area. We recommend patients be at or within 10 to 15 lbs. of their goal weight before liposuction surgery, treating the stubborn, unresponsive fat cells to help eliminate them.

Is Liposuction better than CoolSculpting for fat removal?

This comes down to two main things:

  • Surgical vs. Non-Surgical
  • Spot Treatment vs. Larger Area

Liposuction is a popular surgical procedure that can remove small to larger volumes of excess fat. CoolSculpting, on the other hand, is a popular non-surgical treatment that exclusively spot-treats small areas of concentrated fat cells. When considering each, note that patients that have opted for the non-surgical route often require multiple treatments spaced out over time and rarely see as dramatic of results compared to what one Liposuction procedure can achieve. CoolSculpting can only treat the chin area when it comes to treatments of the face.

What else do I need to know?

Facial liposuction can eliminate fat that accumulates in areas of the face and neck to help create a stronger definition of the facial features and the neckline. Although this procedure takes less time for residents of Orange County than liposuction for the body, the results can be dramatic and give patients the desired result they are looking to achieve.

How much does Facial Liposuction cost?

Starting Cost for Liposuction: First area $3,600 + $2,700 per area thereafter

Your cost will vary based on the number of areas being treated, the size of the areas being treated, the amount of fat being removed, and if you’ve had liposuction before. We also offer up to 24-month financing options to help our patients pay off the cost of their procedure over time. In just minutes, you can apply here to see what you are pre-qualified for before your consultation.

Does Liposuction permanently remove fat?

While liposuction permanently removes fat cells, remaining fat cells can expand, or new ones can form if you gain weight.

Will insurance cover Liposuction?

Liposuction surgery is considered a cosmetic procedure, so insurance typically doesn’t cover this. If cost is of concern, we offer financing options to help our patients pay off the cost of their procedure over time. In just minutes, you can apply here to see what you are pre-qualified for before your consultation.
