Yes it can make you age faster, if not thoughtfully performed. However, conservative and artistic fat removal can both SLIM AND REJUVENATE the face. In this video, Dr. Zelken revisits his concept of facial harmony and soft tissue modulation. Using a piece by Rembrandt as an example of soft tissue changes typical of the aging face, Dr. Zelken explains why facial slimming rejuvenates the face in certain areas but can age it in others. Also, he reiterates that buccal fat pad removal is both subtle and appropriate for anyone, of any age, whose appearance is compromised by buccal fat hypertrophy. Enjoy!
