What about using filler? Yes, filler is another option. However, filler is much more costly, charged by the cc. In a typical face like this, at least 30-40 cc of fat is required for injection into both cheeks. How much do you have to pay for 40 cc of filler injection? Moreover, filler is temporary. Do you have the budget to get filler injection done every year? Fat, if grafted well, may last more than 10 years.
This is a warning for young teenage girls who buy into the hype of removing buccal fat to make their faces appear slimmer. The problem is they do not even know what they want. What they really want is a more V-shaped face, which can be achieved with jowls liposuction as what Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie has shown throughout this Video Blog. However, most surgeons remove the main body of the cheek fat, instead, making the face appear sunken and haggard. Cheek fat is going to naturally disappear when we age. By removing the main body of cheek fat in their teens and tweens, these clueless youngsters have just happily paid a handsome sum for premature aging! Surgeons will happily remove buccal fat for you if you ask for it, as they can charge you more. Liposuction costs a lot less!
