Liposculpture | Fat transfer

You may be suitable for facial liposculpture if you have lost volume in your cheeks or if you have a fatty neck


Facial liposculpture refers to procedures that aim to improve the definition of your facial contours. The basic idea of liposculpture is to remove excess fat when it is present (for example the chin/ neck) and to inject fat into areas where volume has been lost (for instance the cheek area). “Sculpting” the fat to achieve smooth, well-defined contours, requires care and precision.

Facial Liposuction

Micro-liposuction is used to remove excess fat (see section on liposuction). Facial liposuction can be used to improve the definition of your jawline and to reduce double chins. Dramatic improvements can sometimes be achieved using liposuction alone (particularly in younger patients where skin quality is good). In other patients, loose skin remains when the fat has been removed, and the only way to deal with this is to combine the liposuction with a lower neck facelift.

Fat transfer

Fat transfer (lipomodelling/ fat cell grafting/ Coleman fat injection) is a technique that has become very popular over the last 15 years or so. It involves removing fat from one part of the body (usually the abdomen, buttocks or thighs) and its transfer to another part of the body. The fat is removed using liposuction and is prepared in the operating theatre to separate the fat cells. Fat is injected where it is needed. The areas of the face most commonly treated are the cheeks, to restore the youthful appearance of “high cheekbones“. Fat is used in the same way as fillers but has the advantage of being completely natural. It can give a long lasting result but some absorption of fat will occur, and a repeat procedure may be required. Fat transfer can be used in isolation or combination with other facial surgery when needed.
