BLOG: BUCCAL FAT REMOVAL NYC
Blog about bucal fat removal NYC questions and answers by Dr. Mesa
I am considering getting buccal fat removal to thinner the lower part of my face but am concerned about whether the results could make it worst or not?
Dr. Mesas Answered: Patients who would like to thinner the lower part of their face could benefit from buccal fat removal.
Buccal fat removal is the cosmetic plastic surgery procedure that decreases the fullness of the lower ANTERIOR cheeks ( chubby cheeks). When performed in patients with good cheek bones, the patients achieve a contoured V shape, chiseled facial look.
It is important to know that buccal fat removal does NOT decrease the fullness of the lower POSTERIOR cheek. In this area there is no buccal fat pads. Very commonly, the fullness of the lower POSTERIOR cheek is caused by enlarged masseter muscles ( chewing muscle). Botox treatment of the masseter muscle, makes these muscles to shrink, thus enhancing the results of the buccal fat removal.
