FACE AND NECK LIPOSUCTION
Attempting to eliminate lower face and neck fat through diet and exercise alone is often a very frustrating endeavor, which is why liposuction surgery of the lower face and neck is an effective and rewarding option for many patients. Facial and neck liposuction can produce very dramatic effects in the aging face or in younger patients with fat deposits.

FACE AND NECK LIPOSUCTION
As many people can attest, it is not easy to lose weight in your face. The chin and jaw areas are notoriously resistant to the effects of diet and exercise. Liposuction can create subtle improvements to these spots that result in a more slender facial profile.
The best way to determine if facial liposuction is for you is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Givens who has extensive amount of experience performing facial liposuction and/or other facial rejuvenation procedures. He will examine your facial anatomy and engage you in a candid discussion of your aesthetic goals and expectations.
When performed in a localized area with a relatively small amount of fatty tissue, such as the chin and neck areas, liposuction is usually performed with local, or tumescent, anesthesia and conscious sedation. However, if neck liposuction is being combined with a face or neck lift, general anesthesia is typically recommended.
Small incisions are hidden under the chin or behind the ears, and a thin suction tube called a cannula is inserted to remove the fat from your neck. The incisions are not stitched closed to allow for elimination of remaining anesthetic fluid after the procedure. Scarring from the incisions is minimal and rarely noticeable.
What do neuromodulators do?Neuromodulators (including Botox and Dysport) relax the muscles and reduce fine lines and wrinkles in the face and neck. These treatments combat forehead lines, glabella lines ("11's" between the brows), crows feet (around the eyes), smile lines, neck lines, and other wrinkles associated with aging. They can also be used to help sculpt and lift facial features including for a nonsurgical brow lift and a nonsurgical neck lift.
What is the difference between BOTOX and Dysport?While BOTOX and Dysport both use the same substance (botulinum toxin A) and are based on the same mechanism of action, the size of the molecules in the injections are significantly different. Dysport contains smaller molecules of botulinum toxin type A than BOTOX. - Dysport can spread through your cells more easily - Dysport may begin working slightly faster than BOTOX - Results from Dysport and Botox last for a similar amount of time
How many units of Botox will I need? How many units of Dysport will I need?The amount of units needed can differ from person to person depending upon your desired outcome, the area of concern to be treated, the strength of the muscles in the area, and whether the treatment is for prevention or to treat existing fine lines and wrinkles and their severity.
When will I see results from Botox and Dysport?Most patients can expect to notice early results of Dysport between two to five days following treatment, while results from Botox may take seven to fourteen days. The degree of muscle relation can continue to evolve for about two weeks and the results last for three to four months. The longer the BOTOX treatments have been routinely performed, the more relaxed the facial wrinkles will appear over time. Results of Dysport are similar, but often with a slightly quicker onset of action.
How long does Botox last? How long does Dysport last?Results may vary based upon the dose given, as well as on muscle strength of the area and metabolism, as our bodies metabolize (or break down) the Neuromodulators over time. Treatment to maintain your results are recommend every three to four months. Using medical grade skin care products at home as part of a daily skin care regime can help to maintain your results and improve the appearance and quality of your skin.
Does Botox and Dysport hurt?Many of us are not big fans of shots, especially needles in general. However, Neuromodulators are generally quickly injected with a minimal amount of discomfort, using the smallest needle available. Many of our patients barely notice the injections.
Who are good candidates for BOTOX and Dysport?BOTOX and Dysport have been proven safe and effective for treatment of a wide variety of patient and wrinkle types, however, the earlier the treatment is started, the more favorable the results can be. Some patients are not candidates for this type of treatment and include those diagnosed with neurological conditions or disorders affecting muscle movement, history of allergy to the botulinum toxin product, or those with unrealistic expectations from the treatment. Patients who are pregnant or nursing are discouraged from undergoing treatment.
