I am 20 years old and i have very chubby cheeks. I have lose alot of weight but my face is still pretty fat. Do u think it is safe to get lipo in my face??? I have researched it and it says i should wait until my mid 20s to get lipo out the face because as i get older my face might naturally slim down. But honestly i don't believe it will. I don't believe my face will literally go from looking swollen because it is so chubby to looking slim. I want to ask my plastic surgery to lipo my face just a little so my face won't look so fat. And wait later to get my face lipo down to the size i want.
Hi brown123....iam new here and also in my early 20's I dont have any advice about the lipo on the face but from my personal experiencev i aslo have chubby cheeks and face and i recently started gointg to the gym workin out and after each workout i went into the sauna for like 10 min in the beginning but now i can go 15-20...now that sauna makes u sweat girl from the inside out...and by the time i got out i would be drenched with madd sweat....Literally!!!! my face would be so wet!....after 2 days going i noticed my face getting so much smaller.....my 2 chins were turning into 1 big one and my cheekbones were appearing...a week later i had just 1 toned looking chin. I swear its the sauna because i wasnt even dropping pounds yet and my face was already looking smaller....hope this helps and good luck!
I can only say that by the time I was 30 I would have given ANYTHING for my youthful chubby cheeks back. I didn't have lipo but my face lost volume like many people's do. Most people do lose volume in the face as they get on into the 20s and that is one of the biggest "agers." Not saying it is a bad thing...but it is an aging thing.
So do really think about this before you do it, and personally, if it were me and I was at the weight I wanted and still had a full face...I'd wait it out a few years.
Please don't lipo your face! Trust me, you will lose the 'baby fat' and one day wish you could have it back. You will naturally lose the fat as you age, so why speed it up. Of course it is ultimately your decision, but please think about this.
Chubby cheeks are youthful- if your body isn't fat. I hated my chubby cheeks as a teen and now in my 40's would kill for some of that fat - that is why fillers/injectables are so popular. Hold off on messing with your face. Chubby faces don't have wrinkles like the skinny ones do - just think of how youthful you will be in your 30's and 40's! Look at the pros not the cons.
I don't think you should get plastic surgery at this point. I'm now in my thirties and when I was younger, I always would say that I wish I could lose weight in my face. Now that I'm older, my face has slimmed down.
My suggestion? Make the most of it right now. Visit a good makeup artist, who can give you some great tips on how to make your face appear slimmer without surgery. And keep smiling, because it's a great workout!
If you're still feeling like you want some lipo, I would honestly wait until you're older, at least over 30. Our bodies are always changing and I would hate for you to get a procedure and regret it later, especially when the wrinkles start setting in!
If you're still feeling like you should get it done, make sure you get at least 3 different opinions. Your face, once it's changed, will look different for the rest of your life. Surgery is permanent, and you should be really sure before you change the most recognizable thing you have.
