Procedure to slim lower face? = several options based on physical exam #chubbyface #buccalfatpad #slimmerface
Some of the factors that may need to be addressed to achieve a chiseled face generally are:
-Lower anterior cheek fullness: this could be addressed surgically with buccal fat pad removal
-Lower posterior cheek fullness: this could be achieving my treating the masseter muscle ( a masticatory muscle) with Botox. The masseter muscle gives bulk to the lower posterior cheek fullness at the level of the angle of the jaw bone
Patients interested in determining what plastic surgery procedures may help to achieve a slimmer face should make a consultation with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon specialized in plastic surgery procedures of the face
