Chrissy Teigen, the model-turned-entrepreneur, has always been open about going under the knife. She was open about her boob job and then breast reduction, and she also candidly joked during a Becca Cosmetics event, “everything about my face is fake except my cheeks.”
Now, the avid social media user announced via a selfie video that she had yet another surgery done to her face. Teigen recently underwent buccal fat removal in Los Angeles where she lives. This procedure is already popular, and it’s bound to gain popularity after it was broadcasted to Teigen’s 35 million Instagram followers.
In her video, Teigen says that her facial plastic surgeon in Los Angeles removed the pocket of fat from between her jaw and her cheekbone to slim her face.
“I did that Dr. Diamond buccal fat removal thing here,” she said, pointing to her slimmer cheeks. “And since I stopped drinking, I’m really seeing the results… I’m seeing results and I like it.”
Those with wider faces are often looking for ways to contour their features. Makeup can only do so much, so many want to chisel their jawline and cheek areas.
Buccal fat removal is recommended for those with wider faces with more plumpness to them. Removing the buccal fat instantly trims the face, but creating a hollow space beneath the cheekbone can really age someone if they are not working with an experienced surgeon.
If too much fat is removed or if the patient already has a slim face to begin with, then a buccal fat removal procedure can easily age them.
Those who are looking for a slimmer profile should contact our office. We can set you up with a procedure that can remove fat from your face as well as use this same fat to fill out other areas to create a more personalized contour. This procedure is called facial fat transfer, and our doctors can work out a plan that best fits your face!
