This surgery is being performed more and more every day. With the increase in selfies‘ popularity, people are becoming more aware of certain details in their faces such as the cheeks.

For this reason I receive many patients in my office who wish to have a slimmer, more profiled face.


This surgery can be done with local anesthesia. It lasts an average of 20 minutes and is outpatient.

The surgery consists of removing the fat bags from the cheeks by making a small incision inside the mouth. The final result can be seen after 3 weeks when the inflammation has subsided . This result is completely natural and harmonizes the shape and contour of the face achieving younger and more attractive faces.
