Melt Facial Fat Restore Your Beautiful Contours

Laser-assisted facial liposuction is similar to traditional liposuction in that it can remove facial fat. However, this approach also stimulates collagen production, which may offer additional skin-tightening benefits. It’s a minimally invasive approach that results in less trauma to your tissue and a safer procedure overall.

  • Typical Recovery Period: 10-14 days

Are you a Candidate?

If you are a healthy adult looking for a more defined profile and jawline, facial liposuction in Nashville may be right for you. In general, an ideal candidate should:

  • Have adequate skin elasticity for the procedure
  • Want to address excess fullness below the jawline and along the cheek and chin area
  • Possess specific goals for the procedure, along with realistic expectations
  • Be at a stable weight

It’s important to note that, like traditional liposuction, this procedure is not a weight control method or a fix for obesity. Its goal is to contour the areas of your face that have not been responsive to diet or exercise. In many cases, this procedure is performed in conjunction with other facial plastic surgeries, such as a facelift or blepharoplasty.

The Procedure

What to Expect

Facial liposuction is performed under local and tumescent anesthesia – which ensures your comfort and primes the fat for removal. To access the fat, Dr. Moran will make a small, well-hidden incision beneath the chin or within the natural ear crease. Through that opening, she will insert a cannula and administer the laser to tighten tissue and target unwanted fat cells. 


After laser-assisted liposuction, you will return home to heal. You can expect to return to work and your normal routine within two to three days, although exercise will need to wait for two more weeks. Bruising, swelling, and discomfort are the most common side effects. They usually last for a few days at most.
