Cheek & Face Liposuction in New Jersey & Philadelphia
Cheek and face liposuction is a cosmetic procedure that eliminates excess fat and loose skin, particularly in the area of the chin and neck. Commonly referred to as double chin liposuction, this procedure can help patients achieve a more toned and contoured facial profile. Through the use of small tubes called cannulas, the surgeon removes fat from the area beneath the chin and jawline, resulting in a slimmer appearance with less fullness in the neck or double chin area.
Facial liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures among both men and women who desire to enhance their overall facial appearance by reducing unwanted fat deposits around their face and neck. The procedure helps improve facial harmony by sculpting away stubborn fat pockets while giving you a tighter, firmer, more youthful-looking complexion. With minimal downtime associated with cheek and face liposuction—usually 2-3 days—it’s becoming one of the preferred ways for individuals to enhance their features without invasive surgery or injectables.
Our practice in New Jersey and Philadelphia specializes in providing clients with natural-looking results that can last for years when paired with good lifestyle habits such as proper diet and exercise.

How Is It Performed?
Cheek and face liposuction is a minimally invasive procedure performed by a skilled cosmetic surgeon. During the procedure, the plastic surgeon will make small incisions in the area beneath your chin and jawline to access pockets of fat that are unresponsive to diet and exercise. The doctor will then use specialized tools to suction out the unwanted fat, sculpting away any excess tissue for improved facial harmony and tighter, firmer skin. Depending on your individual cosmetic goals, your plastic surgeon may suggest additional treatment options or procedures, such as neck lifts or chin implants, to further enhance your results.
What to Expect After a Cheek and Face Liposuction
Following cheek and face liposuction, you may experience swelling and bruising may in the treated area, which will typically resolve within a few days. To promote adequate healing, you should avoid strenuous activities, like exercise or heavy lifting, for a minimum of 2 weeks after the procedure to ensure proper recovery. After this initial recovery period, you should be able to resume your normal activities with minimal discomfort.
One Week After Surgery
One week after your cheek and face liposuction surgery, you may notice further improvements in your facial contours as the swelling continues to subside. During this time, you should continue following the post-operative instructions provided by your plastic surgeon and avoid any strenuous activity until your body has fully recovered from the cosmetic surgery. With proper care and rest, most patients can return to their normal activities within 2 weeks of their neck or facial liposuction procedure.
Potential Risks and Side Effects of Cheek and Face Liposuction
Cheek and face liposuction is a safe and effective procedure when performed by a qualified plastic surgeon.

The potential risks of the procedure include bleeding, infection, bruising and swelling, asymmetry, and skin necrosis in the affected area. Fortunately, you can usually avoid most of these side effects if you follow your surgeon’s post-operative care instructions carefully. Additionally, you may also experience temporary numbness or tingling in the area due to nerve damage during the procedure.
