Face & Neck Liposuction

Conveniently located to serve Los Angeles and Beverly Hills
Face and neck liposuction is performed to reduce fat and improve contour. For example, liposuction can remove the appearance of a “double chin” and improve the definition of the jawline. Ideal candidates for liposuction are those who have localized deposits of fat that is resistant to diet or exercise. In order to reduce the risk of loose skin after the liposuction procedure, it is important to have firm and elastic skin. If the skin requires tightening, additional procedures may be necessary.
Dr. Foulad is highly skilled at performing micro-liposuction using very small cannulas to remove undesired fat. Micro-liposuction enables very precise contouring, which is particularly important for delicate areas such as the face and neck.

Candidates for Face & Neck Liposuction

Candidates for liposuction are those who have regions of excess fat despite being at a healthy weight. It is also important to have good quality and elastic skin. Typically, most patients in their 20s and early 30s have sufficient skin elasticity to undergo face or neck liposuction without the concern of developing loose or saggy skin. Older patients may also benefit from liposuction, but this would highly depend on the quality of their skin and other factors. Genetics, smoking, and sun exposure can significantly affect skin quality.

In addition, the best candidates for face and neck liposuction are those who mainly have an excess of superficial fat. This is because liposuction would not be able to reduce the deeper fat under the platysma muscle of the neck or reduce the buccal fat at the face. It is also important to ensure that the cause of fullness is not due to structures other than fat, such as various muscles or glands. Additional procedures are required to address the deeper layers of fat and other structures that may be causing the undesired fullness.

Dr. Foulad will perform a thorough evaluation to help you decide if liposuction is an appropriate treatment to best meet your goals.

How Face & Neck Liposuction is Performed

Dr. Foulad typically performs face and neck liposuction using local anesthesia with the patient awake. In this case, oral medication is prescribed to help with relaxation during the procedure. However, the procedure can also be performed using IV sedation or general anesthesia.
During the face and neck liposuction procedure, the treatment area is injected with a solution containing local anesthetic and epinephrine. This is to numb the area and to reduce bleeding during liposuction. Once the treatment area is numb, tiny skin incisions about 1-2 mm in length are made for the cannula insertion. During neck liposuction, one to three of these tiny incisions are made under the chin and/or near the ear. The incisions are so small that they are not typically noticeable once healed. A microcannula is then passed through the tiny incisions, and passed back and forth through the area of fatty deposit in order to breakdown and suction out the fat. Once the liposuction procedure is completed, a compression bandage is then applied. Liposuction is customized for every patient depending on the indications and can be performed alone or in conjunction with other surgical procedures.

Dr. Foulad’s Optimized Technique

Dr. Foulad has optimized the liposuction procedure and aftercare protocol in order to enhance results, improve patient comfort, reduce risk, and expedite healing time.

Tumescent Anesthesia:
Dr. Foulad performs infiltration of the treatment site with a solution of tumescent anesthesia that includes a mixture of medications. Injection of the tumescent solution is typically associated with minimal discomfort when performed properly. Tumescent infiltration numbs the entire treatment site, which enables liposuction to be performed comfortably on a fully awake patient. The tumescent solution also reduces bleeding and improves recovery. Over the years, Dr. Foulad has optimized the formula of his tumescent solution.

Microcannulas:
The use of relatively tiny cannulas further optimizes the procedure. Dr. Foulad only utilizes micro-cannulas as opposed to more traditional liposuction cannulas that are larger. It takes a little longer to perform the procedure using smaller cannulas, but the extra time is well worth it. When micro-cannulas are used, the skin incisions for the entrance of the cannulas can be made much smaller. These tiny incisions typically do not require sutures and are not usually noticeable once healed. In addition, the micro-liposuction technique is associated with smoother results due to less risk of forming lumps and depressions.

Optimized Compression:
The technique used for compression after the procedure is very important to improve the recovery process. Dr. Foulad uses two different types of compression dressings depending on the healing phase. A high compression dressing is first applied immediately after the procedure. This promotes fluid drainage so that the fluid does not build up under skin. This technique is feasible because the incisions made during micro-liposuction are very small and do not require being closed by sutures. Within about 1 to 2 days after the procedure, the tissue has had sufficient time to seal. At this point, the high compression dressing is switched to a less bulky low compression dressing. This low compression dressing is worn either all day or just part of the day for a period of time determined by Dr. Foulad relative to your specific healing. The low compression dressing is designed to aid with swelling reduction, while avoiding high pressures that can reduce lymphatic and blood flow.

How to Prepare for Face & Neck Liposuction

In preparation for undergoing lip lift surgery, we need to ensure that you are healthy and optimized for the procedure. Certain medications and supplements (such as those that increase the risk of bleeding) might have to be stopped a specific time period prior to the procedure. You will be provided more comprehensive pre-operative instructions specific to your individual case.

We are conveniently located to serve Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, & Los Angeles. However, we are available to help with coordinating your stay if you are an Out-of-Town Patient.

What to Expect After Face & Neck Liposuction

Swelling usually peaks around 3 to 4 days after the procedure, but most patients still appear slimmer at that time compared to before the procedure. It may take several months for all the micro-swelling to resolve and for you to appreciate the final results.

Most patients have mild to no bruising, however we have had patients with more severe bruising. Bruising also typically peaks around 3 days after the procedure.

A thick cotton dressing is wrapped around your head and neck for 1 to 2 days after your procedure. After that, it is recommended to wear an elastic velcro neck strap. The amount of time you should be wearing the neck strap will be customized depending on the specifics of your individual case and how much swelling you have.

Face & Neck Liposuction faq

How long does liposuction last?

Liposuction permanently removes fat cells. If you gain weight, some of the remaining fat cells can enlarge in size. However, the region will still remain slimmer than if you had not undergone liposuction. In order to maintain your results as best as possible, it is recommended to maintain a healthy and stable weight.

Can liposuction remove all the fat at my neck?

It is important to leave a thin layer of fat under the skin. Overly aggressive liposuction can lead to skin injury, banding, and a skeletonized appearance, which can be very difficult or even impossible to fully correct. In addition, liposuction is unable to reduce the deeper fat compartments of the neck.

This young lady desired to reduce the fullness under her chin, as well as improve the contour of her chin and jawline. Dr. Foulad performed gentle micro-liposuction of the neck and jowls. In addition, a small chin implant that extended to the pre-jowl region was placed to augment the chin and further refine the jawline.

CASE 5: Face LIPOSUCTION

Jowl Liposuction Buccal Fat Reduction

View case Details ▼

This patient desired to slim her lower face, especially at the region of the jowls. To achieve her goal, Dr. Foulad performed micro-liposuction and buccal fat reduction under local anesthesia. Very small cannulas were used during the micro-liposuction to precisely contour the lower face. Although she was awake, she was very comfortable and had no pain during the procedure. She had a quick recovery and is now enjoying her refined facial contour without any visible scars.

Facial liposuction is a highly advanced procedure and requires great expertise to achieve successful results. It is critical that the procedure is performed on the appropriate person. The amount of superficial fat, the position of fat, the structure of the face, and skin elasticity are some of the elements evaluated when determining a proper candidate for facial liposuction. The procedure must be performed with precision and finesse using very small cannulas designed for micro-liposuction. The correct amount of fat must be removed. Overzealous fat removal can lead to irregularities that may be difficult or even impossible to fully correct.

Her particular procedure was performed under local anesthesia. She was very comfortable during the procedure and had a quick recovery.

Dr.Foulad and his staff are amazing. The results speak for themselves. Dr. Foulad is meticulous. The experience was beyond great. I had a neck lift, a mid face lift and an upper eye lift. Dr. Foulad was very attentive. Chelsea, the practice manager, took care of every detail. I felt at ease and very taken care of. I had prepared myself for a painful surgery and recovery period but it was not like that at all. There was no pain and very little discomfort. It felt more like a well needed vacation. I had all my surgery on a Friday and I saw Dr. Foulad and Chelsea through the weekend. By the following Saturday I was at an important social function and with a little make up, no one could tell I was a week out from surgery. Some people would call this vanity. I disagree. I don’t feel 63. Why should I have to look 63.(or older!) It’s the best thing I ever did for myself. I can't thank Dr. Foulad enough. If you are considering doing this, I beg you to pull the rip cord, take the plunge, whatever you want to call it, but do it! It’s worth it. You’re worth it!

There aren't enough stars for this review to tell you how pleased I am with Dr Foulad, Chelsea and the staff. It was so worth the miles traveled to have my facelift, neck and brow lift. Their attentiveness from the consult all the way through to the aftercare has been amazing. He continues to check in with me 2 months later. His attention to detail and his warm and caring personality made this such an enjoyable experience. I could not believe there was minimal pain and you cannot even see where the stitches were. I feel AND look like a new woman. Judge for yourself with my pictures! Highly recommend Dr Foulad and his staff

Dr. Foulad performed my facelift and neck lift a few months ago and my results are phenomenal! He is kind, talented, and did beautiful work on my face and neck. He is very honest and takes a lot into consideration when giving his recommendations. He takes so much time to answer your questions and explain everything to you. Everything about my experience was top notch. I have seen other doctors in my past and none of them followed up with me or spent the amount of time with me the way Dr. Foulad has. His staff was also incredibly pleasant and accommodating with me. I can’t recommend Dr. Foulad enough. He genuinely cares deeply about his patients and does excellent work!

Dr. Foulad loves what he does and it shows. He is professional, knowledgeable, skilled, and dedicated to his patients. His "bed manners" are without equal. He follows up on his patients for weeks after surgery, providing timely advice and encouragement. He is honest and upfront about what benefits surgery can provide and he refers to other surgeons procedures that he does not feel comfortable performing.

Dr Foulad is absolutely amazing! He is super patient, takes the time to thoroughly explain all your issues, thoughts, and goals and maps out all of your options without pushing anything whatsoever (if anything he does the opposite and explains everything in depth). He was completely attentive and super eloquent and smart when describing all of the ways he can help heal and preserve my skin and shared a wealth of knowledge. The practice manager Chelsea is patient, kind and super sweet and helpful. I'll definitely be telling my family and friends to become patients of Dr Foulad's practice. He is a perfectionist in the best way possible.

Wow, I am so impressed! From the minute I walked into his office I was warmly greeted by his staff and ushered off for my consult with Dr. Foulad. He was extremely through (I ask a lot of questions) and he was very patient and did not rush me. I followed up the next week for my procedure which I’m thrilled with the outcome and feel so much confident! I’m looking forward to a long relationship with his office and it’s nice because he offers the entire package of treatments, products and procedures to cover all the bases! So no more running around to different offices!
