If you find that your face is too round or too wide, we invite you today to discover three techniques to make your face look thinner. This article has been written for Anti-Age Magazine.

Get slimmer cheeks thanks to bichectomy

Bichectomy consists in removing the deep fat pads from the cheeks by getting rid of the so-called ‘Bichât fat pads’. The ‘Bichât fat pads’ are located just below the cheekbones and give the cheeks their rounded shape. You may wish to reduce the volume of your cheeks because you find them too round, or simply to highlight their hollow and, by doing so, to get a slimmer face.

Get a slimmer face using liposuction of the (lower) cheeks

It is possible to correct a too round face using liposuction to remove excess fat located in the face, including the cheeks, the lower part of the cheeks, the chin and the neck. Liposuction of the face helps to make the contour of your face slimmer again.

Reduce a too strong square jaw thanks to botulinum toxin injections

Masseter muscles (or masticatory muscles) define the shape of the jaw. If they are too large, the angle of the jaw will look wider. It is possible to reduce the shape of the jaw by injecting botulinum toxin into the masseter muscles. The muscles will relax and therefore loose some of their volume. The hollow of the cheeks will be highlighted and the face will become slimmer.

For more effectiveness, it is definitely possible to combine these three techniques.
