What is Facial Sculpting?

Facial contouring (also known as facial sculpting) is the reshaping of facial contours through the removal of fatty deposits under the skin.  Facial sculpting may also include surgically reshaping bone and cartilage or adding fillers to create fullness.


Treatment Options

Facial sculpting is the reshaping of the face through any of a variety of procedures. The standard is liposuction, a surgical procedure with inherent risks that many patients wish to avoid. Other options include laser or energy-assisted liposuction, which are usually gentler in comparison to regular liposuction. There are also non-invasive procedures, such as injectable fillers, which are becoming common but results are less predictable and less impressive.


How Does Laser-assisted Facial Contouring Work?

Laser-assisted facial sculpting, also known as ACCULIFT™, involves the application of energy to melt fat for manual removal or absorption by the body. The heat generated on or beneath the skin may also cause some skin contraction as well, which is desirable.


WHAT IS THE ACCULIFT PROCEDURE?

The AccuLift procedure is an exciting innovation in facial contouring developed by leading plastic surgeons in Korea and the United States. No other procedure enables removal of accumulated or descended fat deposits with such comfort, ease and safety. The AccuLift procedure is ideal for precision facial sculpting as a standalone procedure and with other facial rejuvenation and contour improvement techniques.

  • Defy gravity by removing excess fat deposits that have migrated downward in the face
  • Minimally invasive procedure requires only local anesthesia


WHAT TO EXPECT

The AccuLift experience starts with a physician consultation to outline the areas of concern and discuss anticipated results. Your physician may recommend AccuLift as a standalone procedure or as an integral part of your specific treatment regimen where AccuLift may be performed in combination with filler injections, fractional CO2 laser skin resurfacing, facial fat grafting or facelift surgery. After the treatment areas are prepared your physician will use the AccuSculpt laser to loosen and remove controlled amounts of fat. Light bruising may occur along with minor swelling and you are likely to be able to return to most of your normal activities within a few days.


NOW IT IS EASIER AND SAFER THAN EVER TO SCULPT THE FACE

The AccuLift™ procedure is ideal for contouring the face and neck – including the midface and nasolabial folds, lower face and sagging jowls and submentum (area under chin) and neck – without the need for deep anesthesia or complex surgery. The AccuLift™ procedure is an effective standalone procedure for many patients and an excellent way to improve results of other procedures such as filler injections, fractional CO2 laser skin resurfacing, facial fat grafting and facelift surgery.
