Chubby cheeks are adorable on babies. On adults? Not so much! What can you do if you’re sick of having your cheeks pinched? Fortunately, there are several cosmetic procedures that can help correct the look of your cheeks, and give you the svelte face you’ve always wanted. These procedures can give you a more-defined face, which will result in a huge self-confidence boost!
Buccal Fat Removal
Plastic surgeons used to perform facial fat removal often but proceed with caution! Facial fat is important to retaining a youthful look. Just look at how popular facial fillers are! If you get too much facial fat removed, you may regret it when you’re older. Facial fat helps prevent wrinkles, and keeps your face from looking gaunt.
While plastic surgeons may still perform facial fat removal for the right candidate, it’s very important that you’re aware of the potential downside.
Chin or Cheek Implants
Chin and cheek augmentations are performed either using:
Chin and/or cheek augmentation are a great way to add definition to your face. They improve facial structure, symmetry, and balance.
If you’re concerned about looking “jowl-ey”, liposuction can be performed around the jawline and neck, and under the chin. Slimming down this area can have a great impact on the look of your face, giving you a slimmer, more defined look.
Not exactly a cosmetic procedure, but losing weight in general can help slim down your face. A lot of people carry excess fat around their faces, resulting in chubby cheeks and double chins. Losing some weight can improve your overall health, happiness, and appearance, as well as making your face appear slimmer.
Though facial fat removal can sound tempting, you may be missing it down the road! Discuss with your surgeon all the risks and rewards associated with facial fat removal. They will be able to assess you and see if you would be a good candidate for it. Everyone is unique and has different needs when it comes to cosmetic surgery. Fortunately, there are enough procedures that your doctor should be able to find the right one for you.
