Buccal fat removal, face lift, or jowls removal? ... facelift at young age???? = Nooo! #buccalfatremoval #buccalfat #jowls
Young patient that have mild jowls usually have heavy lower cheeks and lack of good projection of the (upper) cheek bones.
Young patient should NOT get a "mini" facelift before 50s ( at least 45s), specially if dark skin color since the scars will be very noticeable in from of the ears ( which would cause a facelift stigmata). Facelift scars are like diamonds, they last forever!
Patients with heavy lower cheeks and sagginess of the lower face that translate in mid jowls could benefit from both cheek augmentation with fillers ( like Voluma) and buccal fat removal if candidates. I wrote a blog about this. See link bellow.
Patients interested in sliming down the cheeks should make a consultation with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon specialized in plastic surgery procedures of the face
