You probably already know that sometimes no amount of diet and exercise can get rid of fat and it certainly can't spot reduce fat. But, what about those areas that you can't work out in the first place-the cheeks, neck and chin?

You might be surprised to learn that you can actually use liposuction to remove the fat in these areas. That's right, it's not just for the tummy, hips and thighs-liposuction can slim up your face too!

Because the face is not an area you can hide, a very thin micro-cannula, vacuum tube, is used and usually the tumescent technique is employed. This procedure is done under a local anesthetic. What also makes tumescent technique so wonderful, besides the smaller cannulas and incisions sites is the use of an injected solution of lidocaine and epinephrine.

The lidocaine makes the fatty area swell up, making it easier for the cannula to suck out the fatty tissue. The epinephrine constricts the blood vessels which reduces bleeding during the procedure. As a result, there is less trauma to the area which leads to less bleeding, swelling and an faster recovery time.

Areas this procedure can treat are the cheeks and jowls where fat commonly gathers and gives you a puffy droopy dog appearance. Tumescent liposuction can remove the excess fat and contour the area revealing your cheek bones and jaw line that has been hiding under the fat. Another area that responds well is the area just below the chin and down the neck.

You know, it kind of makes you look like you don't have a chin or, in profile pictures, there's a waddle of fat that makes you cringe. Again, this area can be treated and give you a more appealing profile and a definite chin, no more double chin.

Liposuction alone can make you look slimmer and younger in the face. But, for an overall younger look, you may need to have additional procedures. Particularly if there is a lot of excess skin after the fat is gone, you may need a face lift or partial lift. Other skin treatments that can help put the finishing touches on your new face are laser skin resurfacing or injectables, like Restylane or Botox.

These can reduce the appearance of wrinkles, sun damage and firm up the skin and promote collagen production for improved volume and elasticity. These, along with the fatty deposits, make you look older than your years. When choosing a surgeon to perform liposuction around your face, be sure to choose wisely.

Some doctors may advertise that they are a cosmetic surgeon, but that doesn't mean they have been properly trained. Only a board certified plastic surgeon is qualified to be performing procedures like this and it is your best defense against complications during and afterwards.

The average cost of treated this area ranges from $2,000-$4,500 depending on the extent of the treatment and how many areas need to be contoured. A baggy chubby face ages you and makes you seem bigger than you are. Get rid of that fat, slim up the face and reclaim a younger slimmer looking you.
