Question

I am in my 30's and have a round slightly chubby face which I feel does not match my slim body frame (I am a size 6) I hoped my face would have slimmed down in my late 20's but it remained the same, my mum also has a round chubby face (but mine is not as bad as her's) she is in her late 50's so it seems I inherited it.

Can you please advice me what procedure/s are best for my problem? I feel like there are many types of procedures on the market and I am getting myself confused. Can you please advice me if liposuction is best for my case and if yes what is the best liposuction for the face? Also if buccal fat combined with facial lipo would help or if a facial lipo would be enough to achieve a slimmer face.

Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you.

Answer

In a situation like yours, I would advocate a consultation using 3-D imaging and simulation in order to define the type and extent of change that you seek, and this will guide us to the procedure or combination of procedures most likely to give you satisfaction.

You need to bear in mind though that between the computer simulation and surgical outcome there will always be differences.
