I had micro liposuction to the cheeks to correct a fat grafting procedure that resulted in a chubby look.

The procedure was painless (under general anesthesia) and I never took any pain meds. My face was numb within the procedure area for weeks, but subsided with each week, and completely went away after 3 months.

I couldn't be happier with the results, it's amazing how something that seems so small of a feature can have such a big impact on how you look. I am now 3 months post, and all of the numbness has subsided. I look like my old self (perhaps a bit better).


Post more before and after pls. My face is very fat and chubby looking at options to get a more slender and defined cheeks. You look very great. Congrats!

This is a another pic of me before the procedure.


Thanks for the review. I am very interested in having this procedure. Can you clarify with which of the 2 doctors did you do this procedure? did you have it all over the face or just under the cheeks?

Hi, it Dr. Hunstad at the Hunstad Clinic.

8 months post procedure

One last pic, since I doubt there will be any changes going forward. All in all, worth every penny to get this one.


You look much better. You didn't look bad as a result of it but I can't see why the doctor felt you needed it put there in the first place. Thanks for sharing.
