Facial LiposuctionConveniently located to serve Washington, DC
Facial liposuction improves the contours of the face by removing resistant fat deposits. Commonly targeted areas of facial liposuction include the chin, cheeks, neck, and jowls. It is often used in combination with a facelift in a “full-faced” person.
The procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia and may take 1-2 hours to complete, depending on the extent of the area being treated. Recovery time is minimal, and most patients can return to work within a few days. For the best results, it is important to choose a qualified and experienced facial plastic surgeon, such as Dr. Olding, who has performed many successful facial liposuction procedures in the Washington area.
During your consultation in our Washington office, Dr. Michael Olding will examine the treatment areas for facial liposuction. He will listen to your goals and look over your medical records. Following this, he will create a personalized treatment plan based on his findings and your goals.
Dr. Olding will see to it that you fully understand the treatment process. He will discuss the necessary preparation steps, the facial liposuction procedure, the recovery process, and possible results. A quote may also be provided for the cost of the procedure.
You can ask Dr. Olding questions anytime during the consultation, and he will make sure to address all of your concerns. A date will be set for the procedure based on your availability.
It is generally performed as an outpatient procedure and can be performed with techniques that infuse targeted fat cells with a solution to reduce post-operative bruising and swelling.
After the solution has been administered, a tiny targeted incision will be made for the cannula to pass through. The stubborn facial fat will be loosened with the cannula and then removed with medical suction.
Finally, the treatment area will be cleaned. The procedure will usually last half an hour, depending on the number of treatment areas.
The patient can go home right after the procedure. Specific instructions will be given for the recovery process. Temporary swelling, soreness, and a burning sensation may be experienced during the recovery period.
Certain physical activities will not be allowed until Dr. Olding gives his clearance. Patients usually return to work in one to two weeks, and back to strenuous activity within a month. Results are permanent.
No scarring soon after surgery; a very natural look; and 15 to 20 years younger looking!
I’ve had several facial rejuvenation procedures by Dr. Olding over the last 7 years and they have all been excellent. In every instance, Dr. Olding listened carefully to what I wanted done and he provided good feedback on what he would recommend. He’s very easy to speak with, very friendly and kind, as is all his staff. Previously, I had a procedure done in Los Angeles, so I have a good basis for comparison. Dr. Olding is, by far, better. No scarring soon after surgery; a very natural look; and 15 to 20 years younger looking! Highly recommended in every way possible.
Side effects of facial liposuction include temporary bruising, swelling, numbness, soreness, or fluid drainage. Potential complications range from asymmetry and skin rippling to discoloration, infection, and temporary nerve injury.
