Using Cheek Reduction Surgery to Sculpt Your Face

Published on: November 25, 2016

Your cheeks have a large impact on the shape of your face. While some people desire cheek implants to soften their face, others opt to have cheek reduction surgery. For those who were born with a rounder, fuller face, cheek reduction can help define their facial structure, offering a more sculpted look for their face. Here are a few of the benefits of using cheek reduction surgery for transforming your facial features.

  • Show off your cheek bones. If you have a rounded or “chubby” face regardless of your body weight, your cheek bones can look non-existent. Removing some of the buccal fat pads in your cheeks can reveal your cheek bones.
  • Transforming your facial structure. For those who want a more sculpted face, especially in the midsection, a cheek reduction may offer the distinctive form they are desiring for their face.
  • Reducing the appearance of a square face. If you have a squared face that is padded, a cheek reduction can offer a sleeker, more chiseled outline of your facial structure.

A cheek reduction can be performed using an intraoral procedure. This means the incisions are made inside the mouth, leaving no visible scars. Small incisions are made to remove the buccal fat pads to reveal a more defined cheekbone area. After the fat is removed, cheekbones can appear higher and more defined, changing the overall shape of your face.

Not sure if a cheek reduction is right for you? Schedule a consultation with an experienced facial plastic surgeon that offers cheek reduction surgery to learn more about the procedure and how it could help sculpt your face.
