How does facial lipo work? What should I expect?

  • A diluted lidocaine mixture is injected into the treatment area, after which the skin is prepped and draped.
  • The surgeon makes a two-millimeter incision, through which a fine laser fiber is introduced into the anesthetized area.
  • Nd:YAG laser fiber is gently passed back and forth under the skin to liquify and destroy the fat cells. This causes coagulation of blood vessels, greatly reducing bruising as compared to older liposuction.
  • Once the fat is destroyed, the laser wavelength is changed to target deep underlying skin and cause contracture -- a significant advantage over traditional liposuction.
  • The liquified fat is then gently removed with low suction.
  • To maximize safety, we use TempASSURE technology for real time thermometric data. This ensures the fat is heated adequately, without damaging surrounding tissue.
  • A compression dressing is then placed for 48 hours.

Is there a long recovery after facial liposuction?

There is minimal downtime after facial liposuction with Prolipo Plus. You may return to work and normal activities in 48 to 72 hours after treatment. You can expect to experience slight tenderness for a few weeks after the procedure.

Facial Liposuction FAQ

How many facial liposuction treatments will I need?

Most patients need only one Prolipo Plus facial liposuction treatment.

When will I see results with facial liposuction?

Results are usually visible after swelling has subsided and will continue to improve over several months. You will need to wear a compression garment for the first few days after facial liposuction.

How long will my results last?

Results with facial liposuction are long-lasting. As adults, we do not make new fat cells in response to weight gain. The existing cells simply get larger. In the Prolipo Plus fat removal procedure, we heat, liquify, and destroy the fat cells in the treatment area, making that area more resistant to future weight fluctuations. That said, there will be some residual fat cells (although many fewer), and these can enlarge with significant weight gain.

How does Prolipo Plus work?

Prolipo Plus works by delivering laser energy through a slender fiber to targeted areas of fat on the face or body. The laser energy liquifies unwanted fat and firms the surrounding tissue, to create a slimmer, tighter appearance.
