Chrissy Teigen Shares Her Subtle Surgical Secret!
It’s no secret that model Chrissy Teigen is a beauty icon. Though sometimes even the most gorgeous celebrities seek subtle micro tweaks to perfect their look.
Chrissy took to her Instagram story this week to share about her buccal fat removal experience with her Beverly Hills doctor.
“I did that Dr. Diamond buccal fat removal, ” she says as she points to her cheeks and shows off her glamorous angles.
Chrissy was the perfect candidate for this procedure given her naturally high cheekbones and defined jawline. The goal is to provide more definition––accentuating the cheekbones and jawline by reducing the volume mid-face.
Buccal fat removal has been all the rage over recent years, with results that mimic famous faces like that of Bella Hadid and other top fashion models. In fact, buccal fat removal made its way into the PERK newsletter last fall as the most popular procedure of the season! Our most common demographic that comes in to consult with Dr. Michelle Lee for this procedure are young women in their twenties and thirties. Though this is a great method for men and women of all ages (21+) that are concerned about fullness of the cheeks!
A big part of the procedure’s appeal is not only its high satisfaction rate. Buccal fat removal is also a relatively quick and simple outpatient procedure that lasts about 1 hour and only requires local anesthesia! Incisions are completely hidden––one incision is made inside each cheek in order to remove the buccal fat pads. Initial swelling and recovery will take about two weeks to resolve, but the final results can be seen up to 6 months afterwards.
The face naturally slims over time as well. It is important that your plastic surgeon is board-certified and has a specialty in facial aesthetics to ensure not too much of the buccal tissue is being removed. Sometimes too much being removed can lead to a gaunt, bony appearance as the face loses volume with age.
Chrissy’s loving her new look even more now that she’s committing to a healthier lifestyle. She notes, “And since I quit drinking, I’ve seen the results. I like it.” It’s no wonder that Chrissy is loving her final results––she’s looking and feeling like her best self!
Consult with a top Los Angeles plastic surgeon, such as Dr. Michelle Lee, to find out if you are a good candidate for buccal fat removal.
