Have you lost the natural highlights and shadows of your face? Do you want to have more contours under your chin and around your cheek bones, but a facelift seems too extreme? If so, facial liposuction may be the cosmetic procedure for you.

What Is Facial Liposuction?

Just like on other areas of your body, your face can develop deposits of fat that make your face look more rounded. Facial liposuction is a cosmetic treatment that removes the excess fat to give you more structured facial features.

Is Facial Liposuction Right for Me?

Facial liposuction does not eliminate wrinkles like a facelift and dermal fillers. As an experienced and skilled cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Shumway is able to determine if you would benefit from facial liposuction after examining your bone structure and fat position of your face. To find out if you are a good candidate for facial liposuction, schedule a consultation with Dr. Shumway.

Why Choose Dr. Shumway?

Shumway Cosmetic Surgery is dedicated to the aesthetic enhancement of our patients through laser and cosmetic surgery procedures. Our office is conveniently located in beautiful La Jolla, which is in the San Diego area of Southern California.

An expert in his field, Dr. Robert A. Shumway, MD, FACS has studied at the nation’s finest medical centers and has taught cosmetic surgery techniques at Duke, UCLA, and UCSD. As a trustee of the California Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, he stresses the importance of close post-operative care, carefully instructing his patients on how to expedite their own healing and recovery.

Dr. Shumway evaluates each patient personally and considers techniques that will provide exceptional results with minimal downtime.

How Is Facial Liposuction Performed?

At Shumway Cosmetic Surgery, we only perform Tumescent Liposuction, a technique that is recognized as one of the most significant advances in liposuction treatments and that has quickly risen in popularity with men and women because it is an outpatient procedure and much more affordable than other techniques. The procedure is easier on the patient and much more precise for Dr. Shumway, which makes the technique an excellent choice for facial liposuction.

On the Road to Recovery

Tumescent Liposuction is most often performed on an outpatient basis, so you can go home the same day. After the surgery is complete, you will be asked to wear a compression garment which will hold everything “in place” and help reduce swelling. This garment will be worn for several weeks as you recover.

During the first few days after surgery, you will experience significant swelling. This should settle down after a few days and resolve completely within a month. Most people can return to work within a week and even start exercising after two weeks!
