If you're interested in having a more sculpted jawline, cheeks, and chin, then having facial liposuction in Phuket could be the ideal solution. While diet and exercise can often be sufficient for helping to tone many areas of the body, it may not be sufficient for toning fatty deposits along the neck, jawline, chin, or cheeks. Many men and women often turn to facial liposuction as a solution for toning these areas.
Liposuction is performed to remove undesired deposits of localized fat cells. While liposuction was primarily used for body contouring in the past, it is now an effective solution for toning the face. The best candidates for facial liposuction are men and women who are in good health, have good skin elasticity, and who have realistic expectations.
If you're considering having facial liposuction, Phuket offers a number of benefits. Along with the ability to save a tremendous amount of money on your procedure, you can also enjoy a tropical getaway. Phuket is home to many excellent healthcare facilities and expert physicians. During your time in Phuket, you will have the chance to sample traditional Thai cuisine and relax on one of the island's many pristine beaches.
Before booking your procedure in Phuket, you should still take some time to research options. Our staff at Medical Departures can help by providing a list of thoroughly researched facilities and surgeons. We only include a clinic on our list once it has passed our background check, which includes civil and criminal checks as well as verifying professional associations and qualifications of medical staff. In addition, we visit facilities in person to get an idea of how things are done at that facility. Finally, we interview patients who have used those physicians and facilities.
Prior to having this procedure, you will meet with your surgeon for a consultation to discuss your goals and expectations. Facial liposuction is performed with the use of a special tube known as a cannula. The tube is inserted through a small incision made in an inconspicuous location in the neck or on the face. A pump or suction syringe attached to the tube is used to extract fat cells. The result is a more sculpted and youthful appearance. This procedure is often sufficient on its own for younger patients; however, older patients may benefit from having facial liposuction performed in conjunction with eyelid surgery, a brow lift, face lift, or rhinoplasty. Facial liposuction may also be performed along with the addition of cheek or chin implants to create even more definition.
Depending on the amount of liposuction to be performed, this procedure could take between one and four hours to complete. In most cases, this procedure is performed on an outpatient basis.
It should be noted that the fat removed in this procedure is permanent, as most people do not typically create a lot of new fat cells following puberty. Instead, existing fat cells are expanded as you gain weight. This procedure is designed to remove fat cells permanently, thus creating improved facial contours. In the event that you gain weight following this procedure, the weight will be distributed in remaining fat cells.
Only one or two incisions are usually made in facial liposuction. Your physician may advise you to wear a dressing over the incisions and treated area for a few days following your procedure. You will likely need to rest for at least 24 hours. If you experience any discomfort, oral pain relievers and cold compresses can help. Patients are typically able to return to their normal activities within 2 to 4 days following facial liposuction. Some bruising may appear following facial liposuction and remain for up to two weeks.
