Face Liposculpting in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic

Do you have trouble recognizing the face you see in the mirror as the same one you had in your younger days? Natural aging can cause fat to accumulate around the cheeks, jowls, chin, and neckline, making you look grumpy, tired, or prematurely old. Fortunately, you may be able to turn back the clock thanks to a minimally invasive procedure called face liposculpting — a procedure we offer at our Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic cosmetic surgery center.

What Does Liposculpting Involve?

Facial liposculpting is a form of liposuction, the same kind of procedure which (on a larger scale) removes fat deposits from other areas of the body. Like liposuction, liposculpting can’t address weight problems such as obesity. Instead, it involves the precise removal of small pockets of fat cells, resulting in a smoother, firmer, more youthful-looking face and neck.

What to Expect Before, During, and After Your Plastic Surgery

Before your liposculpting procedure, our plastic surgeon will evaluate your facial fat distribution to determine exactly where to remove fat and how much fat to remove. Dr. Mallol will also make sure you have the right degree of facial elasticity to enjoy optimal results from the procedure, and that your overall health and expectations make you a good candidate for surgery.

Facial liposculpture surgery generally takes less than two hours. The surgeon will make tiny incisions and insert a thin, tube-like device called a micro-cannula. Vacuum pressure then extracts small, precise amounts of fat from the targeted areas until the desired effect has been achieved. Chin and jowl sculpting requires external incisions that leave almost no marks. incisions to remove unwanted cheek fat involve invisible incisions inside the mouth.

Unlike more invasive cosmetic surgery procedures, face liposculpting requires minimal recovery time. While you may need to apply ice for a few days to ease postoperative pain and swelling, you can expect to return to your normal routine mere days after undergoing the procedure. Instead of drastically altering your appearance, liposculpting offers subtle yet significant changes to make you look younger and feel more confident.
