I am thinking about having facial liposuction around my chin and jaw to create a more defined profile. How long would the results of this kind of procedure last and can it be done with laser liposuction?
The results that you obtain from facial liposuction will last as long as you do not gain excessive weight following your procedure. The use of laser liposuction on the face has become more popular as the laser liposuction technology has the ability to tighten the skin at the same time that fat is removed which can give a more dramatic result compared to traditional facial liposuction. I feel that although the results of laser facial liposuction can be good it is important to set realistic expectations with patients with regards to the degree of improvement of their face they can expect to achieve with facial liposuction.
