This patient requested chubby cheek reduction as well as a double chin removal. When she learned about our options, she chose to undergo Permanent Facial Contouring including cheek liposuction, buccal fat removal and chin liposuction - all performed under local anesthesia in our New York City office.
While many of my colleagues are obsessed with adding fat to the face, I think they are sometimes missing the mark. Yes, it's true that we all want fullness in the upper cheek, or what we call the "midface", but in the lower cheek if there is too much volume it only makes us look "chubby". So, in my office I've starting removing some of the fat from the lower face only - NEVER from the upper cheek because we all want higher cheekbones. By removing the fat from the lower cheek, the cheekbones seem to "pop" a little more. It can create a much more elegant and beautiful appearance for the right patient.
To read more about the evolution of this technique and my reasoning for it please see my blog post.
