Lipo Contouring Q & A

What is lipo contouring?

Lipo contouring redefines the natural contours of your face and neck by eliminating stubborn fat deposits and restructuring the remaining tissues.

The goal of lipo contouring is to reduce accumulations of fat that contributes to prominent jowls, sagging neck, and a double chin. As a result, the treatment gives you a more youthful appearance and enhanced facial symmetry.

Dermatology & Advanced Skin Care offers lipo contouring for adults who are dissatisfied with their appearance but aren’t ready for a facelift or other invasive procedure.

When should I consider lipo contouring?

Schedule a skin evaluation at Dermatology & Advanced Skin Care if you’re looking for minimally invasive solutions to address:

  • Jowls
  • Neck fullness
  • Double chin
  • Poorly defined jaw
  • Unbalanced facial symmetry

The board-certified dermatologists can also use advanced lipo contouring technology to slim the area around your cheeks.

To determine if lipo contouring is a good fit for you, the providers complete a skin evaluation and review your medical history. They also discuss your expectations for treatment to confirm lipo contouring can provide the results you desire.

What can I expect during my lipo contouring procedure?

Lipo contouring is a minimally invasive outpatient procedure. Your Dermatology & Advanced Skin Care specialist provides a local anesthetic to numb the treatment area and keep you comfortable.

They make small incisions in the targeted areas of your face and insert a cannula, a thin, suctioning instrument that eliminates unwanted fat deposits. Your provider uses advanced techniques to remove specific areas of fat without disturbing nearby tissues. They sculpt the remaining tissue to enhance the natural contours of your face.

After a period of recovery, you can expect to go home. Recovery time from lipo contouring is minimal, and many people can return to work within a week. Because the team uses only small incisions, your risk for noticeable scarring is low.

It can take several weeks for the swelling to subside before you can see the full benefit of your treatment. Since destroyed cells can no longer hold fat, the results of lipo contouring are long-lasting.
