Facial liposuction FAQ

What is face liposuction?

Face liposuction is a common procedure involving the permanent removal of fat from the midface, chin, and neck. It is a powerful contouring technique for defining and sculpting the neck and jawline.

How much does face liposuction cost in NYC? 

On average, face liposuction in NYC costs range from around $4,500 to $9,000. Several factors affect the total cost, including anesthesia and facility fees, amount of fat removed, surgeon’s experience, etc. The total cost of your procedure will be discussed during your consultation with Dr. Miller.

How will the procedure go

Facial liposuction normally takes less than one hour to perform. It is an outpatient procedure and is usually done under local anesthesia. Dr. Miller makes tiny incisions to insert a narrow cannula that breaks up the fat cells and suctions them out. 

The incisions are too small to require suturing or leave visible scarring behind. Most patients are back to regular activities within a matter of days.

What does recovery from face liposuction look like?

Recovery after face liposuction is relatively minimal. While the recovery process differs for everyone, most patients resume their normal activities three days to one week after surgery. You will be required to wear a compression garment for at least one week after your procedure to minimize swelling and bruising.

Expect minor bruising and swelling in the days following your procedure. You may ice your face to alleviate them. Keep your head elevated at night for the first 1-2 weeks to prevent fluid build-up and swelling.

Bruising and swelling typically resolve within a week or two, and full results are usually evident at that time.

Does it hurt? 

Dr. Miller uses local anesthesia to ensure the facial liposuction procedure is a comfortable experience. He also prescribes pain medications for the early part of the recovery process. Applying ice packs and wearing compression garments help alleviate swelling and bruising during those first days as well.

Will insurance cover my face liposuction?

Face liposuction, like most other cosmetic surgeries, is not covered by insurance.

How long does face liposuction last?

Liposuction results are permanent since fat is removed from the body during the procedure.
