Will Lower Facelift Surgery Remove My Buccal Fat?


Few people are lucky enough to retain their youthful looks as they age. For the rest of us, surgical procedures and treatments can help us look younger and feel more rejuvenated. Lower facelift surgery can correct common signs of aging in the lower third of the face, including loose skin in the jowls.

Patients who have an issue with buccal fat (fat in the middle of the cheek region) may combine their lower facelift with a mid-facelift for more dramatic results.

Facelift surgery at Exclusively Faces Cosmetic Surgery and Medispa has helped countless people look their best and feel better about their appearance. Call our clinic in Sharpsburg, GA to learn more about this and other cosmetic procedures.

Where do you see signs of aging?

As our skin becomes thinner with age, we notice problems like loose skin and wrinkling. Different areas of the face show various signs of aging, so it’s important to pay attention to your specific areas of concern.

For example, the lower third of the face includes the neck, chin, and jowls. A lower facelift procedure can tighten this region of the face. On the other hand, other people are more concerned about excess fat in the mid-face and cheeks. In these cases, a mid-facelift surgery with buccal fat removal may be a better option.

Too much buccal fat can make your cheeks appear puffy and full. Thankfully, Exclusively Faces Cosmetic Surgery and Medispa can create a personalized treatment plan in Sharpsburg, GA to help you reduce buccal fat.

What’s involved in a facelift?

The surgeons at Exclusively Faces Cosmetic Surgery and Medispa offer a range of facelift tools and techniques to achieve the best results. Our procedures generally start with incisions hidden in natural creases and folds to minimize scarring. We then remove excess fat and loose skin for firmer and more sculpted features. Most patients report a dramatic improvement in their appearance and feel more confident and youthful.

Which facelift should I choose?

Ready to counteract the effects of aging? Schedule a facelift assessment with the specialists at Exclusively Faces Cosmetic Surgery and Medispa. Prior to your appointment, think about which areas of the face you’d like to improve as well as your desired outcome. Our team will use this information to discuss the best options for your situation.

Before your scheduled procedure, our surgeons will evaluate your health to ensure you’re a good candidate for cosmetic surgery. Facelifts are intended for patients with healthy skin free from lesions or infections. If you have any medical conditions that may interfere with recovery, please be sure to disclose them to our team.

Will my results look natural?

Our surgeons are experienced in achieving subtle and realistic changes that complement each patient’s individual features. We also take great care to minimize complications during facelift surgery. If your goal is buccal fat removal, our surgeons will sculpt and contour your mid-face to create a more refined and youthful appearance. You can expect to look refreshed but still like yourself.
