Surgery is a surgical plastic that removes the aforementioned fat deposits. As you get older, that fat tissue doesn’t go away, but it gets crushed and your jaw goes down. This is why, aesthetically, the body looks full.
The procedure itself takes about 30 minutes, is performed under local or total anesthesia, and the recovery process takes several days. In recovery, the area around the cheek is swollen and painful to the touch. The swelling usually lasts a week.
However, this is not the definitive solution, as some have reported that fat deposits return to the cheeks within a few years. In addition, it is possible for the surgeon to remove fat deposits from the cheek, causing asymmetry. In addition, there is a risk of nerve damage to the face. Therefore, before making any decision about invasive surgery, it is necessary to consult with experts who have the knowledge you value and have a reliable opinion.
