Round or chubby cheeks can make your face look young but can detract from achieving a mature attractiveness that many desire. Both men and women can have excess fat in the cheek area. This can occur even when they are at their desired body weight. Buccal fat removal is a face & neck surgical procedure that removes excess cheek fat and contours the face for a more svelte, angular appearance.
“Chubby” cheeks are often not desired by adults. Rounded cheeks on a man can have a softer or feminine appearance. Women with chubby cheeks look feminine but more child-like. While there is nothing wrong with rounded cheeks, some people would prefer to have more definition to their cheekbones and facial contours. Buccal fat removal can achieve this desired effect, and we offer this procedure to our patients at City Facial Plastics in Manhattan.
Am I a Good Candidate?
If you desire a slimmer face with a more mature appearance, buccal fat removal may be right for you. Good candidates for this procedure have excess fat in the cheek area that is hiding their facial bone structure. Dr. Gary Linkov can use his extensive surgical and artistic expertise to reshape the cheeks with liposuction and other techniques. The results can be striking, helping to bring out your best features for a more attractive appearance that will bolster your self-confidence.
In many cases, patients will combine a cheek fat pad reduction or buccal fat removal with other procedures. Often, men will have a chin implant and cheek reduction at the same time, creating a more masculine appearance. Dr. Linkov can discuss your desired appearance and recommend other procedures that can help you achieve the facial shape you prefer.
