Question

I have always suffered from big cheeks since I was a child. As I am growing old my face now looks swollen.

How much does this cost an can I have it on N.H.S?

Answer

To start with, I do not know if the NHS will accommodate this type of surgery, and it would be better to discuss this aspect with your GP.

With regards to volume reduction in the cheeks, in general terms it is possible to achieve correction either using liposuction or buccal fat reduction, or combination of the 2.

I would typically use computer imaging and simulation in 3-D at the time of a consultation to try and evaluate what it is that you would like to achieve, and based on this to guide you regarding the most appropriate treatment pathway.
