As we grow older our face tends to hold on to excess fat, especially around the cheeks, chin and neck. Diet and exercise can not always be effective for reducing the fat in the these areas. Therefore it is necessary to use other options to handle these troubled areas.
Dr. Paul Blair at his facial plastic surgery practice in West Virginia offers an answer for many of his patients that are concerned about the fat deposits in their face. The answer could be facial liposuction.
What is Facial Liposuction?
Liposuction surgery is use to actually remove unwanted fat cells from specific areas on the face. Although many people think of liposuction in terms of body contouring, Dr. Blair, as a specialists in facial surgery can use the special tube called a cannula to reduce and eliminate fat cells in the face.
In younger patients, facial liposuction is often effective on its own. In older patients, it may produce optimal results when combined with additional facial surgery such as, brow lift, eyelid surgery, or nose surgery. It is often performed with the addition of chin or cheek implants for better definition.
Who are the best candidates?

- Have good skin elasticity.
