QUESTION ABOUT BUCCAL FAT REMOVAL:
I am 26, not overweight, but have always had fat around my face and under my chin. I want to address the fat under my chin with liposuction but I am wondering if buccal fat removal would also help improve the contour of my face.
DR MESA'S ANSWER:
Buccal fat is a pocket of fat in the cheeks that makes the face to look fat or round. Buccal fat tends to be resistant to weight loss with diet and exercise.
Buccal fat removal is a plastic surgery procedure that removes the chubby cheeks (fullness of the lower cheeks) thus making the face slimmer and contouring the face
Fullness under the chin won't be improved with buccal fat removal but with chin liposuction.
Patients interested in buccal fat removal should make a consultation with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon specialized in plastic surgery procedures of the face
