I have a huge round face. I'm thinking of getting buccal fat removed. Is this the best course of action for me?
BUCCAL FAT REMOVAL NYC QUESITON:
I would love to have a smaller, more defined face. I wanted to get a mini face lift awhile back but the doctor I went to convinced me otherwise. What is should I do?
Buccal fat removal is a plastic surgery procedure that removes the fulness of the anterior lower cheeks ( chipmunk cheeks) and therefore helps a round shape face to become slimmer and v-like shape. However, to change a round to v shape face it is necessary to have good cheek bones. If a patient doesn't have good cheek bones, they should be augmented/ enhanced with soft tissue fillers like voluma or cheek augmentation.
Patients interested in buccal fat removal should make a consultation with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon specialized in plastic surgery procedures of the face
