Fat Buccal Removal/Facial Lipo

Postby VeronicaNicole00 » Mon Nov 21, 2011 5:14 pm

Hi all,

I am not new to this site as I had liposuction done about 1.5 years ago and used this site religiously before and after surgery. I had my abs, flanks and inner thighs done. However, now I am highly considering getting facial surgery. Since my surgery I have lost over 30lbs through healthy eating and rigorous exercise and have managed to keep it off. While my body looks great, my face never quite caught up and no matter how much I have lost in these last 18 months, there has been minimal change. I have always had a very round face and am hoping that by getting this procedure it will help.

I am looking into buccal fat removal to start and then perhaps getting minimal lipo near my jawline if the buccal fat removal still leaves me displeased. Has anyone on here ever had either procedure? If so, I would love to hear your experience and any advice/tips/warnings you may have regarding facial surgery. I am quite excited and have officially begun my search for the perfect surgeon :lol:

Any/all information you provide will be extremely helpful!!

xx
Veronica

Hi Veronica,

I don't know much about facial lipo, but I just wanted to congratulate you on your weight loss!

Can you revisit the surgeon who did your other procedures?

I would check out realself.com and even youtube for more info on the facial work. :)

I looked into buccal removal but was told by surgeons that it will make me look older and as I age it will really show. So what I did instead was drop my body fat %age. You may have lost weight (by the way congrats on that!), but have you checked what your body fat percentage was? It make a difference, unless of course you have have the chubby cheek syndrome via genetics :P

Is this more of a concern for women or is it an equal concern for both sexes? I'm only asking because aren't men's cheeks on average more hollow then a females? If a man like myself with chubbier cheeks then average got buccal fat removal then wouldn't it be a positive thing since it would make me look more manly?
