Face size is affected by a number of factors. The problem of excess fat in cheeks or double chin, can be solved by weight loss and lymphatic massage.
However, if you are looking for a more effective approach, facial liposuction can permanently remove fat cells. Since the face is a very delicate area with a lot of nerves and blood vessels in it, the surgeon’s skills and expertise are crucial.
Swelling after Facial Contouring Surgery
After facial contour surgery, the swelling continues up to 72 hours and subsides gradually starting four days after the surgery while large swells start disappearing approximately a week after surgery.
The degree of swelling and its recovery varies individually, but the shorter the operation time, the less swelling will occur. If the surgeon doesn't have enough experience, unnecessary wounds may appear and affect surrounding tissues, resulting in long-lasting swells.
Sagging cheeks - is it normal after facial contouring surgery?
Sagging cheeks is one of the most common side effects after facial contouring surgery. It’s a condition when the tissue descends into the space where the bones were resected.
Cheek sagging mainly happens when the bone was resected more than necessary and can be minimized if the surgery is performed in consideration of the contour ratio, soft tissue condition, and functionality.
