“Dear Doctors, I am considering Buccal fat removal/jowl Lipo and potentially, also a chin implant. I am 27 and have always had a chubby face and big cheeks. Both my aunt and mum have very round faces too, with hardly any jowl definition and flabby cheeks. I had a neck lipo a few years ago and love the results – however, my face still looks chubby. So, a buccal fat removal or jowl lipo? And would/could a chin implant be necessary to elongate my face and help it appear more balanced? Thanks!”, asks a RealSelf user.
“You are a good candidate for laser liposuction (SmartLipo) of the neck, prejowl as well as contouring your cheeks. Buccal fat pat excision alone will not give you an appreciable difference.”, Aristocrat’s certified surgeon Dr. Kevin Tehrani, M.D., F.A.C.S explains.
