Blog about bucal fat removal NYC questions and answers by Dr. Mesa
Would buccal fat removal help get rid of my chubby cheeks? Is there a procedure for the upper cheek as well?
Buccal fat removal? I have always had chubby cheeks. In the photo I weigh 130 lbs at 5'7" it seems. O matter what I weigh, i always have these huge cheeks!! My question is for both the upper and lower cheeks? Upper around the outer edges of my eyes is so puffed up and rounded!! What can I do so I don't look like a chipmunk? Buccal fat removal? As I age I am finding that I am getting jowls also. Would buccal removal help with this also? Suggestions welcomed!
DR. MESA'S ANSWER:
Buccal fat removal is a plastic surgery procedure that improves the fullness of the LOWER anterior cheek.
Buccal fat removal does NOT improve the fullness of the UPPER cheek since in that area there is not buccal fat.
Fullness of the upper cheeks could be improved with decreasing the overall percentage of body fat (%BF) with exercise and diet.
