Stubborn, unwanted fat on the face can often be challenging to address and cause concern for many adults. It can alter your features, the contours of your face, and distract from your overall appearance. For patients in general good health and stable weight, facial fat can be incredibly bothersome because it can be almost impossible to eliminate through traditional methods like diet and exercise.

Thankfully, there are cosmetic solutions for facial fat to help address and reduce this unwanted fat. Whether the fat is around your eyes, under the chin, in the mid-face region, or spread throughout your entire face, a consultation with Dr. Bengtson or Dr. Alfonso at our facility in Grand Rapids can help you determine if facial fat reduction is right for you.

What is the Cause of Facial Fat?

Fat can accumulate in many areas of the body, and the face is no different. Weight gain can occur for various reasons, from hormones to pregnancy to lifestyle changes, and more.

Unlike other areas, however, facial fat can be particularly stubborn and may sometimes remain even if you lose it in other areas. Fat can accumulate on the cheeks, around the eyes, and under the chin, most notably, affecting your facial profile and contours. Knowing what caused the accumulation of facial fat can help plastic surgeons, Dr. Bengtson or Dr. Alfonso, develop a facial fat reduction plan best suited for you.

Can I Reduce Unwanted Fat on the Face?

Thankfully, there are solutions for patients looking to hide or reduce facial fat.

Of course, many patients first try simple solutions, like make-up techniques or targeted exercises, but these can be tedious and may not have the best results. It can be tiring to continuously do make-up or find interim ways to offset unwanted facial fat. At the Bengtson Center for Aesthetic & Plastic Surgery, we have an array of facial enhancement treatments that can address this and other concerns.

Types of Facial Fat Reduction in Grand Rapids

Facial Fat Reduction is a widely popular procedure, and it can be performed in many different areas of the body and the face. Most notably, places where patients opt to have facial fat removed include under the chin, around the midface, and in the jowls.

What Does Facial Fat Reduction Cost?

The cost of a Grand Rapids facial fat reduction procedure at the Bengtson Center will depend on many factors, as all of our treatments are customized to suit every patient uniquely.

During our initial consultation for facial fat procedures Grand Rapids patients will be able to discuss the extent of correction and reduction desired and any other relevant beauty goals that you’d like to achieve with this treatment. This, along with our facility and services’ costs, will all factor into the final amount. We offer flexible financing options to help accommodate everyone’s needs.


The Benefits of Facial Fat Reduction

Excess facial fat can be a cause for concern for many reasons. In addition to having less desirable effects on your facial contour, it can round out features and cause your face to appear puffy or disproportionate in certain areas.

A Grand Rapids facial fat reduction procedure at Bengtson Center can help to address this main concern and offer additional benefits, as well. In addition to helping you achieve a slimmer and more balanced facial profile, fat reduction treatments can help patients look younger. Plus, fat reductions can be combined with grafting to help redistribute the fat more evenly and accentuate focal areas. At our facility, patients will enjoy high-quality services and treatment options and hands-on care and attention throughout your entire visit.
