Facial Liposuction with Thermi
If you are unhappy, fillers, implants and sculptra can be used to revolumize the area and ultherapy or thermage used to help tighten. By 6 months you know the final outcome. Best, Dr. Emer.
I had facial Liposuction and Thermitight done 6 mths ago. Any suggestions?
Hello dear, thanks for your question and provided
information as well.. This is the surgical
procedure that revolutionized cosmetic surgery becoming one of the most
performed cosmetic procedures. Subcutaneous tissue or fat is removed in order
to contour the body in a way that is harmonious and pleasing to the senses. It
can be performed in almost all regions of the body such as the neck, chin,
abdomen, back, buttocks, thighs, arms and ankles. Usually done through a small
incision in the skin through which a cannula connected to a vacuum is applied,
it can be performed alone or in combination with other procedures. After
liposuction your body is going to be really swollen for at least 2 to 4 months
after your surgery. It is important for you to wear your compression garment
for at least 6 months, the first 3 months 24/7 and then the last 3 months at
least 12 hours per day for your body get use to not having the faja for so many
time. When you remove it, your body can get swollen and also you can have pain.
Remember to also compress your body to prevent a seroma which is an
accumulation of liquid that has to be drained, it is hard to touch and also
really painful. Bruises are completely normal for almost 3 months from surgery,
that’s why is better for you to use a bruising cream and apply it all over your
body 3 times a day. To prevent bad circulation and swollen legs, use
compression socks. Brazilian butt lift can be performed with the same procedure
and for a month it will be swollen and it will drop a little bit without losing
it’s shape if you use your garment.. Hugs!
Facial liposuction and Thermight - now what?
Thank you for asking about your facial liposuction.
- Facial liposuction and heat treatments of the face remove facial volume.
- You need to be examined to know what can be done.
- If the skin is loose, you may need a face lift.
- It is reasonable to wait another 3 - 6 months because there can still be subtle swelling.
- Always see a Board
Certified Plastic Surgeon.
Best wishes - Elizabeth

Lack of volume after volume removal
Many plastic surgeons are has a tent or skeptical of performing facial liposuction.
All too often patients need volume restoration as they get older rather than volume removal.
The proper facial assessment is a complex process that requires an in person consultation.
Follow up with your plastic surgeon to see what he or she can recommend.

It is hard to comment without a before and after photos. You may have excess skin or your underneath tissue needs to be tightened.
What do I need?
Without a photograph or in office examination, it's hard to determine how much skin laxity you have. I do not understand why someone would take fat out of the mid face unless you're talking about the buccal fat pad. In someone who has a very rounded cheek and lacks visualization of the cheekbone, removal of this buccal fat pad can help delineate the cheek. Also, you can add fat or fillers to the area of skin directly above the cheekbones which can help expand the volume pulling the cheek up as you're doing with your pinch. Generally speaking, without massive weight loss, I can't imagine a 34-year-old needing a facelift. I would recommend you see a board-certified plastic surgeon in your area for consultation.
