Liposuction of the lower face and neck can be perfomed as a standalone procedure for certain younger patients who have good skin elasticity.  This means that the skin is tight enough to return to it’s youthful position after fatty tissue is removed.  This is performed in the office with local anesthesia, and there is minimal downtime and recovery.

The procedure is commonly performed in addition to facelift surgery as well, which helps to recontour skin in addition to removing unwanted fat.
