Cheek Reduction Surgery
Round or chubby cheeks may be “cute” when you are a child, but many people long for a more angular appearance to their face in adulthood. If you are in your twenties, thirties or beyond and still have a rounded face, a cheek reduction can create the more angular face you desire. Dr. Rousso and the team at our facial plastic surgery clinic in Manhattan, offer this facial cosmetic surgery to slim the face and achieve the natural, adult appearance you desire.
Cheeks that are heavier can hide the defined cheekbones underneath. Removing the buccal fat pads can help achieve a more chiseled, angular appearance to the face that many people prefer. Once the fat pads are carefully removed, the face can appear more streamlined and mature, with the contours that define a well-formed adult face.
Undergoing a Cheek Reduction Procedure
During a cheek reduction surgery, Dr. Rousso will access the cheek area through the mouth. The incision is made inside the mouth, so no visible scar is left on the face. The buccal fat pads are removed to reveal a contour below the cheekbones, enhancing the shape of the face and defining the cheekbones. The results can be noticeable immediately after surgery, with accelerated definition in a few weeks once all the swelling has subsided.
Those with “chipmunk” cheeks, a heavier mid-face or a rounded face can benefit from cheek reduction surgery if they want a slimmer, more angular appearance. Dr. Rousso offers extensive experience as a double board certified facial plastic surgeon, with an eye for artistry to create a natural and attractive appearance for his patients. If cheek reduction is a procedure you desire to have completed, you cannot find a better choice in facial plastic surgeons to perform your enhancement surgery.
