Can A Buccal Lipectomy Be Done Twice?

Q: Dr. Eppley, Hello, I’m interested in getting buccal lipectomy and perioral liposuction down to the jawline for a less chubby, more angular and masculine look. I had buccal fat extraction done 20 years ago and submental fat lipo. I don’t need submental lipo again but feel I need buccal lipectomy again because it’s still chubby. I really need perioral mound lipo down to my jawline the most. I live in Tampa and would have to travel. How much would this typically cost me? Thank you.

A: Once you have had buccal lipectomy once (provided they really removed the true fat pad), it does not regrow back. So there is no benefit to trying to repeat it.
