Should I Get Buccal Lipectomies To Make My Cheeks Look Bigger?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I was wondering what your opinion was regarding a buccal fat removal to enhance my cheekbones and remove some of the fullness from the middle of my cheeks. Is that something you’d recommend for me or do you think the ROI/ROE is not worth it?

A: Buccal lipectomies for you I would not do. You already have a thin face and extracting  buccal fat today may likely create a very gaunt face down the road which is hard to correct. I don’t say this to many buccal lipectomy inquiries but yours is the one young face to which this applies. Thus to make your cheeks bigger you should take a direct approach and turn to cheek implants
