Facial liposuction in Montgomery, AL

One area of the face where liposuction can make a significant difference is the cheeks. If you’re bothered by your “baby face” or “chipmunk cheeks”, you may be frustrated that nothing seems to make them look any different. This is because the cheeks are genetic and pre-disposed to how they’re going to look, no matter what you eat or how much you work out.

Removing a few ounces of fat from overly full cheeks with liposuction can create a slimmer, more contoured look and help the cheekbones appear more prominent. The neck can also be a difficult place to slim down, also due to genetics. Liposuction can greatly improve this issue, removing just enough fat to achieve a beautifully contoured neck.


Everyone will heal differently, but the majority of patients go back to work in about five days and resume light exercise in one week. Right after your procedure, you will need to go home and rest. Ice packs may help alleviate any discomfort.

The treated area will be wrapped with a compression bandage to help with swelling, and should be worn for one week.


It takes approximately two weeks to really see your newly tightened skin, and it will continue to tighten up around the jawline for up to three months. It may take six months total for your recovery to be fully complete. Depending on your age and quality of skin, your results can last 7 to 10 years. However, it’s important to maintain a healthy weight. If you gain weight, skin in the area will begin to become loose again, or fat may start to accumulate again.
