Is laser liposuction suitable for the removal of facial fat? I have unpleasantly round cheeks and I believe I would look much, much better if I could slim them down a bit. I am not fat elsewhere on my body.
Laser liposuction of the face must be performed with great care. Even in a rounded face, fat removal from the face can make an individual look too slim. A round face can be improved with laser liposuction. The fat in the more superficial layers of the face and neck can be delicately melted and the skin can be tightened. In a round face, the fat may be in the deep layers of the face, and this fat is not accessible with the laser. A small amount of fat may need to be removed from the cheeks utilizing an incision which is made inside the mouth.
