Can Buccal Lipectomies Improve The Definition Of My Jawline?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I am a prospective patient (male) who is interested in minimally invasive jaw defining procedures, namely the removal of the buccal fat pads. I am interested in learning more about this procedure as well as the potential range of costs for this procedure. 

I look forward to hearing back from you!

A: I am not sure I would call Buccal Lipectomies as ‘jaw defining’ as that is over stating what the procedure can likely achieve for most patients. In addition most buccal lipectomies need to be combined with perioral liposuction for a more complete thinning effect between the superior cheekbones and the inferior jawline.
