Q: Micro-Liposuction of Jowl Fat?

How does this work? Is the liposuction performed from the inside of the cheek? Also, under what conditions can this procedure be used?

A. Jowl lipoplasty can be performed in conjunction with submental lipo or during a facelift.

Liposuction anywhere above the jaw line must be done only in select cases. If there is a distinct jowl pad with good quality skin over it, then liposuction with small cannula can be done. If the skin has poor quality, then the liposuction can make things worse.

During a facelift or facial fat grafting, the jowl can be also addressed by filling the depressions around the jowl, thereby improving the contour.
