Buccal fat removal is the surgical removal of unwanted fat in the area between your cheekbone and jawbone. While many people wish to remove excess fat in this area to highlight their underlying bone structure when they are younger, some end up regretting this decision later in life, when our faces naturally begin to have less facial volume.
The good news is that there are ways you can have the best of both worlds: highlight your cheekbones and jawline without prematurely aging your face. Let’s take a closer look at how you can embrace the buccal fat removal trend in a smarter way.
Facial Contouring Alternatives to Buccal Fat Removal
If you are concerned about potentially aging your appearance with buccal fat removal, you might consider these other facial contouring options that don’t require surgery and can yield natural-looking results:
- Evoke Facial Remodeling uses radiofrequency energy to gently heat the upper layers of skin, tightening and toning the cheek area, jawline and neck without surgery.
- MyEllevate® uses dissolvable sutures that can be placed without the need for incisions to tighten and lift the lower face and neck. This can be an excellent option for anyone desiring a more well-defined jawline.
- Injectables can help to contour your face by adding volume and smoothing skin in specific areas in order to enhance your best natural features.
I Already Had Cheek Reduction Surgery. What Are My Options?
If you’ve already had cheek reduction surgery in the past and are now finding that you’d like to add volume to your face, options such as dermal fillers or a surgical facelift may offer the best results. We can also perform a fat transfer to add back in your own fat tissue if your cheeks now have a hollow appearance.
