Located in Glen Mills, Media and Chester, Providence Facial Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery offers facial liposuction to the residents of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and the surrounding areas desiring facial plastic surgery.
What is Facial Liposuction?
Facial liposuction is liposuction that is performed on the jawline or below to remove distinct pockets of excess fat on the face. By removing excess fat, you can enjoy a younger, more sculpted appearance, and may feel more confident in making a positive first impression.
Although the benefits of feeling more attractive are difficult to quantify, many of our patients enjoy their more distinct profile, youthful glow and enhanced natural beauty as a result of their facial liposuction procedure.

Am I a Good Candidate for Facial Liposuction?
The good news is that facial liposuction is a viable choice for many individuals. If you have good skin elasticity but have developed fatty fullness in the area below the jawline, you may be a good candidate for this procedure.
As with any surgery, it is important to be in good health, without any conflicting medical concerns, and realistic expectations as to the outcome of the procedure. Of course, the best way to determine your candidacy is to schedule a consultation. This will allow Dr. Ginsburg to meet with you to hear your specific concerns and create a treatment plan that will be suited to your unique needs.
How is Facial Liposuction Performed?
Depending on your treatment plan, facial liposuction can be performed with sedation or general anesthesia. Liposuction is performed in many areas of the body and is a fairly straightforward procedure. The surgery requires only a small, well-hidden incision under the chin or in a natural crease at the ear. Once the incision has been made, a special suction device, known as a cannula, is inserted to remove the targeted fat.
How Much Does Facial Liposuction Cost in Philadelphia?
The average cost of facial liposuction is $3,500 – $6,000. Every procedure at Providence Facial Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery is priced according to the unique needs of the patient. This allows us to tailor the procedure more specifically to you, offering you exactly what you need to achieve your desires results.
That said, we understand that finances may feel like the biggest obstacle to achieving the body you desire. Our team is happy to discuss cost and financing options during your complimentary consultation, so that you feel your procedure is within reach. For more information, please view our patient financing page.
Can I Have Another Procedure Performed with My Facial Liposuction?
During your complimentary consultation, you will explain your concerns and goals for your facial liposuction procedure. If, during the consultation, Dr. Ginsburg determines that your aesthetic desires will not be fully met by facial liposuction alone, he may recommend complementary procedures. Keep in mind that the length of your recovery time may be impacted by the inclusion of additional procedures.
In many cases, facial liposuction in Philadelphia is combined with facelift, neck lift, or chin implant procedures. A chin implant can give better definition and restore the cervical angle while removing the fullness that forms the angle of your neck. This allows for a more comprehensive update to the face. Do not hesitate to ask us how we can best serve you and help you to achieve your goals, whether that is through one or several procedures.
What Can I Expect from Facial Liposuction Recovery?
One of the best aspects of facial liposuction is that you can expect minimal downtime, bruising, and swelling. Although recovery time is highly dependent upon the individual, in many cases, you can expect around one week of downtime before returning to work.
Although many patients feel functional about 24 to 48 hours after their procedure, it can take several more days before they feel ready to interact with the rest of the world.
During your recovery, it is important to allow yourself plenty of time to rest, keep your head elevated, and avoid lifting or bending over. Many light or low-impact activities can be incorporated after one to two weeks. However, more strenuous activities, such as high-intensity workouts, should only be incorporated after four to six weeks. These precautions and others will help ensure the highest possible satisfaction with the results.
Dr. Ginsburg will discuss the specifics of your recovery process well in advance of your procedure. This will give you plenty of time to familiarize yourself with our recommendations and to communicate your potential need for assistance to family members or friends. Of course, as you continue to heal, our team is more than happy to assist you in any way possible. Do not hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns.

Facial Liposuction FAQs
How long does face lipo last?
Facial liposuction produces permanent results by eliminating fat cells from the face and surrounding areas. This fat does not come back after treatment, so patients can achieve permanent results. However, liposuction does not prevent future fat accumulation that may occur with weight gain. Therefore, patients will need to follow optimal dietary and exercise habits to maintain their results as long as possible.
How long does it take to recover from facial lipo?
Facial liposuction has a fairly brief recovery period compared to other facial surgeries. Patients can expect to return to work and social activities just 1-2 weeks after treatment. However, patients should plan to wait at least one month before returning to exercise and other strenuous activities.
Is skin saggy after lipo?
In some cases, patients will notice sagging skin after receiving liposuction. This is because the skin stretches out over time to accommodate additional fat in the body. Once the fat is removed, the skin may not have enough laxity to tighten completely, resulting in saggier skin. This is primarily a concern for patients who remove large amounts of fat during liposuction, or older patients with poor skin laxity. In any case, patients can combine liposuction with skin tightening techniques to ensure they maintain smooth, youthful skin after their treatment.
Is face lipo painful?
The face liposuction procedure is not painful at all, as anesthetics enable patients to relax comfortably throughout the duration of the procedure. However, patients can expect pain, swelling, bruising and related symptoms during their recovery process. These symptoms will be most severe during the first few days of recovery, during which time pain medications can help alleviate most of the discomfort. Dr. Ginsburg will let you know what kinds of pain medications and pain relief techniques to use to get through the healing process as comfortably as possible.
How long after facial liposuction will I see results?
Facial liposuction produces results immediately, as fat is removed from the face during the treatment process. However, side effects like swelling and bruising can temporarily disguise these results. Therefore, while patients may notice some results instantly, they should expect their final results to become visible within a month or two after any side effects heal.
