THE PROBLEM: People with chubby cheeks are commonly embarrassed of their facial appearance. Having a chubby face can make someone look "childish,” "overweight" (besides normal weight), less sexy or attractive.
Chubby cheeks commonly run in families: parents and grand-parents tend to have chubby cheeks all their lives.
Chubby cheeks oftentimes are resistant to decreasing in size with either diet, exercise or both.
THE SOLUTION: Fortunately, chubby cheeks can be corrected with a minimally invasive, plastic surgery procedure called Buccal Fat Removal or Bichectomia!
HOW IS THE PROCEDURE DONE?: Buccal fat removal is a painless procedure performed under local anesthesia (no need to go to sleep) in the office setting. Recovery is associated with just a few days of swelling and minimal discomfort. The results of the procedure can be seen in about three (3) weeks post-procedure. Final results are usually evident within 12 weeks of post procedure.
RESULTS: Miami area patients that undergo buccal fat removal attain a more sculpted, thinner and chiseled facial look (like in models). Results are permanent and therefore, long lasting.
