As a facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Bared is highly skilled to measure proportions with great accuracy, particularly with cheek reduction. Designed to replace the rounded facial appearance, a successful surgery results in a slim, more desirable contour.
Cheek reduction involves the removal of the collection of fat through a small incision made inside of the mouth. Rather than liposuction, the fat is gently teased out, allowing it to be removed as one large collection of fat. Several sutures that dissolve are then placed to close the incisions.
Cheek reduction is a procedure performed in the office under local anesthesia.
Healing is within a matter of a few days, with minimal to no discomfort nor bruising.
