  • What is a Lower Face Liposuction
    • Lower Face Liposuction is a minimally invasive alternative than a full blown Surgical Face Lift to reverse ageing signs of the lower face and create a more defined a jawline.

      Lower Face Liposuctiont involves the insertion of a fine ultrasound probe under the skin. The Vaser probe uses an ultrasound to melt fat cells and tighten the collagen fibres resulting in an improvement in your jowls and facial shape.

  • Why do saggy jowls occur?
    • Saggy jowls occur for three reasons:

      • Fat pads move south from your cheeks towards your jowls
      • Skin becomes saggy
      • Neck muscles pull the jowls down more tightly


      The Vaser probe will help tighten the skin by causing the contraction of the collagen fibres and melt the fat pad that makes the jowl heavy.

      Anti Wrinkle Injections can be applied along the jaw line and in the neck to help prevent the pulling effect of the neck muscles. All this provides you with a way of improving your jowls without a traditional  face lift.

  • The Procedure. What does it involve?
    • The procedure involves a light sedation and numbing of the area with local anaesthetic. A tiny incision is made under the neck and behind the ear to allow the insertion of the Vaser probe. The probe is then moved back and forth in the area to raise the temperature to 38-40 degrees. This will help contract the collagen fibres to tighten the skin and melt the fat cells.

      There is minimal discomfort, and takes only 30-60 minutes to complete the procedure.

  • Will I experience any pain?
    • The procedure is performed under twilight sedation and local anaesthetic which minimises discomfort.

  • What can I expect after Lower Face Liposuction?
    • It is a walk in, walk out procedure and most people only need 1 – 2 days off work. You can get some slight swelling for up to a week.  Bruising is usually minimal and pain can be controlled with pain relief medication

  • What happens to the skin after Lower Face Liposuction?
    • Lower Face Liposuction stimulates the formation of new collagen fibres. This allows the skin to retract, resulting in tighter, firmer skin

  • Results. What and when can I expect them?
    • The results are 50 -80% of what you can expect with a traditional face lift, although can vary from patient to patient.

      Results are generally seen after 6 weeks, once all swelling has subsided.

  • Are there any risks of complications?
    • Studies have shown that Vaser technology has less complications compared to other UAL methods.

      There are inherent risks and complications as there are with any surgery. You should be aware of the potential risks and discuss any concerns you may have with your doctor before your surgery is performed.

  • Who is suitable for this procedure?
    • Patients over 40 years of age with saggy jowls are the most common group to get the Vaser Face Lift. Younger patients can get the procedure to melt fat pads that are making them look like they have chubby cheeks.
