Cheek Reduction Helping patients get a more slender facial appearance

Is a cheek reduction right for me?

If you are looking to slenderize, sculpt and contour the upper face for a more streamlined and attractive countenance, cheek reduction may be the ideal procedure for your needs. While chubby, cherubic cheeks can be adorable on children, when these hereditary traits carry over into adulthood, they may compromise one's desire for a sexier, more sophisticated aesthetic.

If you are looking to slenderize, sculpt and contour the upper face for a more streamlined and attractive countenance, cheek reduction may be the ideal procedure for your needs. While chubby, cherubic cheeks can be adorable on children, when these hereditary traits carry over into adulthood, they may compromise one's desire for a sexier, more sophisticated aesthetic.

During treatment, excess buccal fat in the lower cheeks is meticulously excised from between the muscle beds, creating a slimmer and more chiseled profile. Cosmetic cheek reduction is often the only solution for men and women with overly rounded cheeks, as diet and exercise rarely produce the desired results.

A good candidate is...

  • in good health, both mentally and psychologically
  • has reasonable expectations for improvement rather than perfection
  • is at an acceptable weight for their height
  • is looking to eliminate cheek bulging known as chipmunk cheeks
  • has tried diet and exercise to no avail

Overview of the cheek reduction procedure

Your surgery is performed at Dr. Lahijani's AAAASF-accredited ambulatory facility in Beverly Hills where you will have access to a team of board certified nurses and surgical techs standing by to ensure your complete comfort and relaxation during the process.

Treatment is most often performed under local anesthesia, administered by injection inside the mouth. Scar-less incisions are made intraorally in the creases between the cheeks and the gums. Dr. Lahijani then gently pressurizes the buccal fat so that it can be easily extracted through the openings. Once the desired cheek shape is achieved, incisions are closed and the surgery is considered complete. Cheek reduction rarely takes longer than one hour to perform, but this will depend on the volume of your contours.

Setting up your complimentary consultation

Dr. Lahijani is excited to meet with you to consider your options for cheek reduction. He sees clients at one of three convenient locations in Beverly Hills, Palmdale or Valencia. During this initial, confidential session, the doctor will examine your bone structure and facial contours, crafting an individualized treatment plan for strategic transformation. He will review your medical profile, perform any necessary testing, and answer any questions your may have in detail. 3D imaging can be of great assistance at this stage, helping patients to better visualize their outcomes and align their expectations with the doctor's treatment plan.

What will my recovery look like?

After your cheek reduction, you may experience moderate swelling, bruising and discomfort. These symptoms are best controlled through pain medications prescribed by the doctor. Any loss of sensation in the cheek area is only temporary and will abate within a matter of days.

Most of our LA cheek reductions clients find they can safely return to work and normal activities within 7-10 days after their surgery. However, the doctor advises that you refrain from strenuous exercise to ensure optimal healing.

Following Dr. Lahijani's detailed aftercare plan to the T is important, since you may need to adjust your diet following a cheek reduction treatment. Correct oral hygiene is also mandatory in order to avoid infection.
