Facial Liposuction

It’s inevitable, as we age, our faces are the first areas of the body to begin showing the telltale signs of years of stress, fatigue, and the effects of natural elements on our skin, and since this is the area that people focus on most in day-to-day interactions, it stands to reason why so many people are going to great lengths to slow down this aging process.

Diet and exercise can help keep our bodies looking young and in good condition. This approach, however, isn’t quite as effective at combating the fatty deposits that begin to develop in the lower face as we age.

For many patients, liposuction of the neck and jowls can produce a significant improvement in the contour of the neck and jaw area. This procedure is clinically one of the most rewarding procedures in plastic surgery. Considered to be a low-risk and relatively inexpensive procedure, neck and jowl liposuction can yield dramatic results that prove to be extremely beneficial to the patient.

The natural aging process causes the skin to grow progressively lax and other essential structural components of the face to degrade. This allows the descent of facial fat to the lower region of the face and the accumulation of fatty deposits in the following regions.

  • Chin
  • Jawline
  • Neck

This fat is stubborn, and often unresponsive to a steady exercise regimen and good nutrition. The migration of excess, fatty tissue toward the “lower third” can begin to have an adverse effect on our facial image over time, creating the appearance of:

  • Drooping jowls
  • Double chin
  • Neck laxity (“Turkey Neck”)

Since these localized, fatty deposits cannot be targeted or eliminated by diet and exercise alone, many men and women turn to facial plastic surgery. Facial liposuction, when done carefully by an expert, can help remove this excess fat from the neck and jowls, effectively restoring a more contoured jawline.



Some of the many benefits that our Austin patients have seen from Facial Liposuction are:

  • Dramatic improvements
  • Enhances results when combined with other facial procedures
  • Improved profile
  • Mildly invasive
  • More youthful appearance
  • Permanent results
  • Very little recovery time

Who are the Best Candidates for FACIAL LIPOSUCTION?

Much like Liposuction for the rest of the body, the best candidates for Facial Liposuction are:

  • Adults within 30% of their ideal weight who have firm, elastic skin, and good muscle tone
  • Committed to maintaining a healthy lifestyle through diet and exercise following your liposuction
  • Healthy individuals who do not have a life-threatening illness or medical conditions that can impair healing
  • Nonsmokers
  • Individuals with a positive outlook and specific goals in mind for body contouring


The first step in getting Facial Liposuction in Austin is to contact Personique and set up a consultation. When you meet with your plastic surgeon, they will go over your medical history, listen to your goals for the procedure, and answer questions that you may have. You will also receive an examination of your face so that your doctor will have a better understanding of what sort of work is needed to be performed. After gathering all the information necessary, a custom surgical plan is created for you. If you are in agreement with your surgeon’s evaluation and plan, our Patient Coordinator will help you schedule your surgery date. You may also be given instructions to follow before your surgery to facilitate the most optimal outcome.

When discussing your medical history, you and your doctor must have full disclosure. Honesty gives your doctor the proper information they need to give you a successful outcome with minimal risk involved.



Often, jowl and neck liposuction is performed in conjunction with a mini facelift to achieve a more comprehensive facial rejuvenation. It may also be combined with a chin implant for the added definition of a weak or receding chin. Chin implants are custom-fitted for each patient and can often be inserted during a neck liposuction procedure through the same incisions.


One of the best things about Facial Liposuction is that the results are permanent. However, if you were to gain a large amount of weight you might note rippling in the treated areas, depending on your skin elasticity.

Following liposuction, the scar will go through a maturation process during the first 8-12 weeks they may be red and possibly raised. The scars will mature over 6-12 months and become pale, flat, and soft. You may experience numbness, burning, and tingling around the incision site. These symptoms are almost always temporary. Please let us know if you are prone to keloid scars.



The cost of Facial Liposuction in Austin depends on multiple factors, but primarily how much work is required and the targeted areas of your liposuction. When you come in for your consultation and discuss the needs of this procedure, your surgeon will have a better understanding of what is needed and create a surgical plan for you. Once this has been done, our Patient coordinator will be able to give you a breakdown for the entirety of your treatment.

How long until I see results?

While there may be some mild bruising or swelling following your Facial Liposuction, you should be able to see immediate results in your face.

Some of the more common procedures that get combined with this treatment are Blepharoplasty, Neck Lift, and Facelift. When you come in for your consultation, you will be able to confer with your doctor and receive their best suggestions to help you achieve the look you want.
