Liposuction main image


Fat commonly gathers around the neck and face creating drooping jowls, a double chin and even a mound at the nape of the back of the neck often called a buffalo hump.

Jowl, chin and neck liposuction can quickly remove fat from these areas and provide you with the facial definition you want.

Incisions for Facial Liposuction

Fat removal from small areas like the face requires a very thin liposuction tool called a microcannula.

As the cannula is so thin, only extremely small incisions are needed.

Facial liposuction incisions are generally around 2 to 3 millimetres long and placed in discrete locations like behind the ears, at the hairline or under the chin.

Facial Liposuction Anaesthesia

These small facial liposuction procedures usually only require local anaesthetic with sedation instead of general anaesthesia.

This means your facial liposuction may be performed in a Medbelle clinic space or your surgeon’s private practice as an outpatient procedure, meaning there’s no need for a hospital visit.

Keep in mind though, whether or not your procedure is performed in a clinic or a hospital operating theatre depends on your needs and your surgeon’s recommendations.

Facial Liposuction Recovery

Most facial liposuction patients can return to work and low-intensity activities 1 week after surgery. High-impact, strenuous activity can be resumed 4 to 6 weeks after.

While results are immediately visible after surgery, it may take up to 3 months for any swelling to completely resolve. Most patients are recovered by 3 months and see improvements in the area for up to a year after surgery.
