Gathered fat around mouth. Would liposuction work for that small area? (Photo)

Liposuction for fat pads at side of mouth
Thank you for asking about your liposuction.
- Liposuction is usually not a good idea on the face.
- It is possible the appearance is from buccal fat in a low position.
- If so, this could be improved with a procedure to remove the excess fat using an incision inside the mouth.
- I suggest you see a plastic surgeon for an examination to see what can be done.
Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Best wishes - Elizabeth Morgan MD PHD FACS
