How to slim my face? = buccal fat removal could be an option. #buccalfat #buccalfatremoval #chiseledface

Fullness of the lower cheeks usually doesn't go away with diet and exercise.This is because the buccal fat, located in the lower cheeks is very resistant to changes in body weight decrease secondary to dieting and exercise. 

In patient candidates, buccal fat removal could improve chubby cheeks. The removal of the buccal fat makes decreases the fullness of the "chipmunk" cheeks, therefore, making the face to look more angular /chisealed. in my practice I perform the buccal fat removal under local anesthesia with minimal pain or discomfort. 

Patients interested in buccal fat pad removal  should make a consultation with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon specialized in plastic surgery procedures of the face
