BLOG: BUCCAL FAT REMOVAL NYC
Blog about bucal fat removal NYC questions and answers by Dr. Mesa
My jaw/chin and the side of my face is huge and squishy. Not to mention my huge forehead and nose. I have no feminine jawline but my cheeks aren’t too bad when I’m smiling, they actually look lifted but the rest of my face and chin and under my cheeks are so big and wide. I hate the way it looks, can I fix it somehow?
Dr. Mesas Answered: Sliming the face usually involves decreasing the fullness of the lower face.
Fullness of the lower face is caused either by enlarged buccal fat pads or enlarged masseter muscles.
Enlarged buccal fat pads causes chubbiness of the lower ANTERIOR CHEEKS. this fullness usually becomes more prominent when smiling.
Enlarged masseter muscles causes fullness of the lower POSTERIOR cheeks and causes the jaw to look wider and more masculine.
Enlarged buccal fat pads could be removed with buccal fat removal.
Big size masseter muscles can be decreased in size with Botox to the masseter. This will require at least two high dose treatments followed my maintenance every 4 months.
