Blog about bucal fat removal NYC questions and answers by Dr. Mesa
POTENTIAL PATIENT QUESTION:
I’d like to create a more defined face , I genetically have slightly chubby cheeks and feel like I don’t have much definition in my face. I was considering buccal fat removal , or a chin implant or both but not sure if I should go with one of those or something else.
DOCTOR MESA'S ANWER:
Patients with chubby cheeks that would like achieve a more defined face most of the time could benefit from buccal fat removal.
Buccal fat removal is the plastic surgery procedure that permanently removes the fullness of the lower anterior cheeks, thus helping to achieve a more thin chiseled facial look.
Very often in order to achieve a very defined face, it is necessary to have also a well defined jaw line. Therefore, in patients with not well defined jaw, specially angle of the jaw, this area could be enhanced with soft tissue fillers like Voluma to achieve a strong chiseled facial look, which greatly complements the buccal fat removal results.
