According to Dr. Richard Swift, the best plastic surgeon Midtown has to offer, becomes of the many advancements we have seen over the years, in terms of health and safety, procedure techniques, and technology, it has made plastic surgery that much more affordable and with reduced side effects and risks, something that more “average” individuals would be willing to try. But when we think of the average plastic surgery patient, we tend to think of women. And while women are still the majority, in recent years we have seen more male plastic surgery patients than ever before. As procedures are not only becoming safer and less invasive but are being geared towards men and the male aesthetic. One of the best examples of this according to Dr. Swift, the best surgeon for male plastic surgery Midtown has to offer, is buccal fat removal Midtown men are having this done at record numbers – and with good reason! In this article, we will delve deeper into the buccal fat pad removal procedure, and understand why men may want to consider it as an option as they age.
What is Buccal Fat Removal?
Before we delve deeper into the topic of male plastic surgery lets first explain what exactly buccal fat removal is. According to Dr. Richard Swift, the top surgeon for buccal fat removal Midtown has to offer, it is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that helps to eliminate unwanted buccal far along the lower portion or the hollows of a patient’s cheeks. Often referred to as cheek reduction, the procedure targets a fatty tissue collection known as the buccal fat pad, an area that is highly resistant to diet or exercise. For those with genetically larger amounts of fat along with their buccal fat pad, it can cause them to have chubby or puffy cheeks, and drastically affect the overall contours of their face, keeping them from having the thin, trim, streamlined face they want, instead of making them appear fatter with a round face. The procedure can remove this fat pad, partially or entirely, depending on the patient’s needs. It generally uses a small incision made on the inner portion of the mouth, near the upper molars. The fat pad is then removed, the incision is sewn up and the patient can return home immediately after. Because of how simple it is, and the fact that the incision is made on the inner portion of the mouth – makes for less scarring, side effects, risks, or downtime.
Why Men Should Consider Buccal Fat Removal?
When it comes to buccal fat removal Midtown surgeons like Dr. Swift generally recommend such a procedure to individuals who would like a thinner, trimmer, more streamlined face, better contours, and an overall aesthetic face and jawline area. When you ask most men, the jawline is one of the most important aspects of their face, and a strong jawline is something that most people assert with masculinity and attractiveness in males. As far as male plastic surgery, buccal fat removal is ideal for any man who has suffered from a rounded face shape and lacks definition in the cheek or jaw area. For men, this can make a world of difference and drastically alter their appearance. By removing the excess buccal fat, patients experience a far less full lower jaw and cheek appearance, thus enhancing their jawline, cheekbones, and creating more well-defined facial contours overall. As the top plastic surgeon Midtown has in practice, Dr. Swift performs a lot of these procedures on men every year.
Are You a Good Candidate?
It is important to understand that while every man might want a stronger more defined jawline and cheekbones, this procedure isn’t right for everybody. According to Dr. Swift, the best surgeon for male plastic surgery Midtown has to offer, it is not advised for those who already have a thin, or narrow-looking face. This will typically cause individuals to appear gaunt, and hollow – especially as they age where facial volume loss can become common. Having buccal fat removal when you don’t need will likely lead to the early onset of age-related issues. This procedure is best suited for men who have excessive fullness in the lower cheek area, a round face, or chubby cheeks. Generally, patients can be in any age range, but it is advised that they ensure that their face has fully developed before having it. Some younger men who might be 18 or 19 might think buccal fat removal is right for them, but in reality, they still have their “baby fat” to deal with and they will soon notice their cheeks and jawline slimming down naturally.
