Heavy cheeks can hide your facial contours. While chubby cheeks are cute on kids, most adults want a more angular appearance to their cheekbones. Removing fat from the cheeks can create the alluring cheekbone definition you desire. At pēkomd® cosmetic surgery center, we offer cheek reduction surgery at our clinic in Toledo, OH.
Genetics and other factors can contribute to excess fat in the cheeks. Even if you are a healthy weight, your cheeks can retain fat that hide your facial contours. The buccal fat pads in the cheek determine the fullness of your cheeks. For those with chubby cheeks, removing some of the fat can create the desired facial outline. Liposculpture in the cheeks can define the cheekbones and create a sexier appearance to the face.
Buccal fat removal can be accomplished with liposculpture techniques. Cheek reduction surgery is performed with a small incision inside the cheek through the mouth. Small amounts of the buccal fat pad are removed to create the desired contours for the midface. Since the incisions are hidden inside the mouth, there are no visible scars from this procedure.
Once the excess fat from the cheeks is removed, the face can appear svelte and slimmer. For those with a rounder face, cheek reduction can create sexy angles and a more balanced appearance to the facial features. With a contoured midface, there is more focus on the eyes and lips, which is desirable for many individuals.
