After years of dealing with congestion I finally made an appointment with Dr. Seeley in May. He was kind, friendly and knowledgeable from the minute I met him. In September Dr. Seeley and his team preformed the balloon sinuplasty procedure on me, which has been successful! Even though I struggled a bit with the procedure, they were so gentle and kind throughout. Follow ups have been great and quick and the whole team is friendly and nice. I actually enjoy coming in to my appointments! Thank you Dr. Seeley and team!!

My experience going to see Dr. Brook Seeley and getting a procedure was honestly the best experience I’ve ever had! From his staff at the desk, to Kim the coordinator, all the way up to Dr. Seelwy himself, I had a great experience even though I was so nervous and not knowing what to expect. He was so beyond professional, kind, friendly, and took all the time in the world to explain everything step by step, answering each and every one of my questions, and not pushing me to get the procedure or any of that fluff that other doctors do. It was an amazing experience. Thank you Dr. Seeley.

Facial Liposuction vs. Body Liposuction

Many of our patients are familiar with body liposuction but less familiar with its facial counterpart. Liposuction has been used for decades to remove unwanted fat from the abdomen, torso, buttocks, and thighs. During fat removal, small incisions are made, and a thin tube is inserted just below the skin. Suction is applied, and the tube is used to remove excess fat. Liposuction must be carefully performed to ensure smooth, even results.

Facial lipo is very similar to body liposuction, although on a much smaller scale. On the body, a surgeon may remove pounds of unwanted fat. On the face, we usually remove no more than a few ounces. We may not remove much fat, but the results are transformative. By suctioning just a few ounces of fat away, we can erase that double chin and create a youthful and attractive facial profile. Removing a little fat can have a dramatic impact on your appearance.

Due to the small treatment area, few incisions are needed. Many patients will only receive one to two small incisions. These are placed in inconspicuous locations, often under the chin. Face liposuction also offers shorter recovery times than body liposuction, since the procedure is of a smaller scale and less invasive.

Areas Treated With Face Lipo

Facial liposuction is usually performed on the lower face. This is the area where unwanted fat typically accumulates during the aging process. We commonly perform face liposuction on the:

  • Jawline
  • Under the chin
  • Neck

Some patients receive treatment in multiple areas. Other patients may only target one specific facial zone. Double chin liposuction is the most popular use of facial liposuction.

After Face Liposuction in Farmington and Hartford County: What to Expect from Recovery

Recovery after face liposuction is a process with multiple distinct phases. Most patients find their recovery progresses quickly. We’ll meet with you several times after your surgery to assess healing and answer questions.

To help our patients prepare for face liposuction recovery, we provide detailed recovery information before the procedure. Patients are encouraged to contact us during recovery with any questions or concerns. If you experience any unexpected symptoms, we are always available.

Perfect Pairings: Our Favorite Complements to Face Liposuction

Face liposuction is often combined with other surgical procedures. Since liposuction only removes fat, not skin, patients often benefit from the tightening and skin removal provided by a lifting procedure. Some of the most beneficial procedures to pair with facial fat removal include:

Facial liposuction can be performed alone in patients with good skin elasticity. If you already have loose skin, removing fat will often make it looser. A lift is needed to remove the excess skin to achieve a good aesthetic result.

Who Is An Ideal Candidate for Facial Lipo?

Ideal candidates are individuals with good skin elasticity seeking to eliminate stubborn facial fat. Whether dealing with a double chin, jowls, or excess fat along the jawline, those at a healthy weight can benefit. Candidates with realistic expectations and good overall health are ideal for this procedure, which can be performed alone or combined with complementary surgeries for enhanced results.

Potential Risks and Side Effects

While the procedure is generally safe, potential risks and side effects include common postoperative symptoms such as swelling and tenderness, which usually subside in the first few days. Some patients may experience residual swelling or bruising a week after the procedure, but it significantly diminishes. While discomfort is typical, it’s manageable with over-the-counter pain medication. There’s a rare need for prescription pain medication. It’s crucial to follow the recommended recovery process to ensure optimal results. During consultation, our surgeons will address any concerns and provide detailed information to promote a smooth and successful recovery.

Frequently Asked Questions about Facial Liposuction

Our facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Seeley, loves answering questions. Good questions show that you’re informed, engaged, and actively thinking about the procedure; these are the types of patients we love to work with. If you have questions, come in for a consultation, and we’ll sit down with you one-on-one to discuss the procedure in depth. Common questions about face liposuction include:

Some discomfort is common after any surgical cosmetic procedure. Most patients can control any pain from the procedure using over-the-counter options. Prescription pain medication is rarely needed after this procedure.

Liposuction permanently removes fat cells. These cells won’t regenerate. While remaining fat cells can expand after treatment, the amount of fat in the area will not become larger. With proper weight maintenance, results from facial contouring procedures should last for many years.

The cost can vary based on factors such as the specific areas treated and the extent of the procedure. For accurate pricing, we recommend you consult us directly at (860) 676-2473.

Yes, it provides permanent results. The procedure removes fat cells, and while the remaining fat cells can expand with weight gain, the treated area’s fat will not increase in size. With proper weight maintenance, the results should last for many years.

No, the procedure is not designed to address eye bags. Eye bags are typically caused by factors such as genetics, aging, and loss of skin elasticity. Procedures like blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) are more suitable for addressing eye bags and rejuvenating the appearance around the eyes.

Facial liposuction is generally considered safe when performed by qualified and experienced surgeons. As with any surgical procedure, there are potential risks and side effects, but these are typically discussed during the consultation to ensure patients are well-informed and have realistic expectations.
