Am I A Good Candidate For Buccal Lipectomies?

Q: Dr. Eppley, Hello, I was just enquiring for if i’d be a candidate for Buccal fat reduction and/or perioral liposuction. Thanks

A: You have the type of face that should NEVER have any form of defatting done. You have a significant infraorbital-malar skeletal deficiency. (flat cheekbones, no infraorbital rim projection and a negative orbital vector. What you need is skeletal augmentation  (custom infraorbital-malar implants) to add projection and create a more defined midface/cheekbone appearance. Removing fat would make your face look worse not better.
