What is Facial Liposculpture?

Facial Lipo-sculpture is the use of fat transfer techniques to inject the patient’s own body fat into the face in a way that is designed to restore its natural contours. The procedure is a natural alternative to the other volume fillers that we offer at FacesFirst, and many people are attracted to the idea of using their own tissue to achieve great volume results. The procedure can be done in the office under local anesthesia or coordinated with another surgical rejuvenation procedure of your eyes or face under general anesthesia. Fat is harvested from your legs or abdomen, processed, and then placed strategically in areas throughout your face. There may be some bruising and recovery is about a week or two. Results usually last 6-10 years!

-Jodee DeRose

After reading about Dr. Picerno, from a man’s point of view, I can only add my absolute agreement to the multitude of five star reviews she and her staff have received. Professional, competent, friendly and caring only begin to scratch the surface when describing she and her staff. Suffice it to say, the procedure performed produced an amazing result and I couldn’t be more pleased. I would recommend her services to anyone who wishes to have facial surgery of any type. Thank you Dr. P for your caring way.

Do You Need Facial Liposculpture?

As we age, our tissues sag, droop and deflate, and the fat in our face becomes thinner and less dense. Simply lifting the sagging tissues back into place does not always restore the tissue to its youthful appearance. Often, fat transplantation is a great method of facial plastic surgery to restore the fullness and natural contours of youth, in addition to lifting the sagging tissues.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long is recovery from liposculpture?

Its best to allow one week away from work and social activities. You may require longer if you work a more physical job.

Are you awake during Liposculpture?

Facial liposculpture can be performed under local anesthetic depending on whether you opt to combine it with other facial rejuvenation procedures.

Does liposculpture tighten skin?

Facial liposculpture does not tighten the skin. If excess skin is a concern, you may need to combine your facial liposculpture procedure with a face or neck lift.

How much fat can liposculpture remove?

There are limits to the amount of fat that can be safely removed during a single procedure. Dr. Picerno and Dr. Cote can give you the best estimate of how much fat can be removed from your target areas.

How is facial liposculpture performed?

Facial liposculpture is a procedure that collects fat from one area of the body and injects it into areas of the face like the cheeks, undereyes, and mouth. Its a more natural way to restore youthful volume to hollow or aging areas.

Where are the incisions made for facial liposculpture, and are there any scars?

Very tiny incisions are typically placed in the natural contours of your body and face where needed. Liposculpture requires only very tiny incisions which are virtually undetectable once healed.
