Cervicofacial liposuction: results and controversies.

Author information

Department of Otolaryngology--Head and Neck Surgery, University of Toronto, Ontario, Canada.


Obtaining ideal results with cervicofacial rhytidectomy has long frustrated facial plastic surgeons due to the difficulty of removing local excesses of adipose tissue in the parotid, melolabial, submental and submandibular areas. Open and closed liposuction techniques are being developed in conjunction with the facelift to improve definition of the facial, mandibular and cervical contours. A review of the senior author's (PAA) cases of cervicofacial liposuction and rhytidectomy is presented with emphasis placed on surgical techniques and results. Current literature is reviewed. Recommendations are made regarding analysis, surgical techniques and postoperative management of patients presenting for rejuvenation of the lower face.
