BLOG: BUCCAL FAT REMOVAL NYC
Blog about bucal fat removal NYC questions and answers by Dr. Mesa
I have been long unhappy with my chubby cheeks. I am 33 yrs old now. I have researched in the last year concerning fat pad removal, however many doctors will state that the mid face will atrophy in your 40's and can cause a hallowed out look, that then requires fillers, etc to correct the issue. This is a very prominent trait in my family both of my parents are in their 60's with no signs of hallowing to their mid - lower face. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Dr. Mesas Answered: Chubby cheeks that usually run in the family are very often resistant to decrease in size with diet and exercise, even when passed the age of 40. Very common, chubby cheeks get worst with increasing of age.
Buccal fat removal is the plastic surgery procedure that corrects chubby cheeks. When buccal fat removal is performed to achieve the patient's specific needs (eg by not removing all the buccal fat pad that gives a hollowed look), it allows the patient to have a thinner fat that doesn't look aged or hollowed, specially when in the 30s or older age.
Patients interested in bucal fat removal with natural results should consult with a board certified plastic surgeon specialized in buccal fat removal.
