Methods of Removing Facial Fat

If you have ever been called “chipmunk cheeks” or “marshmallow mouth” then you understand how irritating excess fat in your face and cheeks can be. Facial fat removal can seem nearly impossible for some people, but believe it or not, there are several things that you can try to reduce the amount of fat on your face.

Even if you are at a decent weight for your height, your amount facial fat could still be disproportionate. Adjusting your diet is one way you can try to remove some of that facial fat. Orange County medical professionals recommend drinking at least four standard water bottles full of water a day. Dehydration can cause the face to bloat, and water not only keeps you hydrated, but it also flushes away common toxins that can give the face a “puffy” look.

Reducing fat intake will help people whose bodies naturally collect disproportional amounts of fat in their faces. Cutting back on salt consumption is also recommended by Orange county health professionals because salt makes the body retain water.

Start up a new exercise routine….for your face! That’s right, facial exercises reduce facial fat while simultaneously toning facial muscles. Smiling repetitions and puckering sets are two common forms of facial exercises that can help remove facial fat.

If no hairstyle, makeup contouring, or any of the previously mentioned options help remove fat (or even create the illusion of fat removal) from your face you can always consider surgical facial fat removal. Also known as a buccal fat removal, plastic surgeons can remove fatty pads on from the sides of your face to give the patient a nice, slender look. Buccal facial fat removal is not for everyone, but for the right candidates, it can make vast improvements to their face and overall appearance.
