Perioral Mound Liposuction
Q: Dr. Eppley, I have perioral fat mounds. I would like to know about options to remove them. It seems like a fairly uncommon problem and most plastic surgeons in my area are unsure how to treat it. I live out of state but I would possibly be willing to travel. I would like to see before and after photos, but I could not find them on your website. Could you tell me where to find pictures for this procedure. I may be interested in scheduling a virtual consultation sometime soon.
A: Thank you for your inquiry in regards to perioral mound liposuction. I will have my assistant Camille contact tomorrow to schedule a virtual consultation time. In the interim I would encourage you to check out my other website, www.exploreplasticsurgery.com and search under Perioral Mounds. There you can see many blogs on this topic as well as some before and after picture results. While the treatment of perioral mounds is uncommonly done, that does not mean it is not very effective. The use of microcannulas allows for controlled removal of this small area of subcutaneous facial fat from a very small incision incision inside the corner of the mouth.
