Face Reshaping- first step

Face Reshaping First Step

What’s The First Step?

To begin Facial Reshaping in the Arcadia, Los Angeles, and Pasadena regions, the first step is to arrange a consultation with Dr. Yu. A physical examination will be conducted in this consultation to assess your facial structure and determine the most suitable techniques for your unique needs. Honesty and transparency about your desires are paramount at this stage, ensuring a collaborative approach between you and our team for the most optimal treatment plan should we plan to proceed with the reshaping. 

Once you are satisfied with the direction of your procedure, Dr. Yu will create your custom procedure plan and our Patient Coordinator will help schedule your surgical date. We will also provide you with detailed pre-operative instructions on how to best prepare for your surgery in the days leading up to the procedure, including avoiding too much sun exposure, refraining from smoking, and consuming alcohol.

What to Expect on the day of Facial Reshaping Surgery

On the day of your Facial Reshaping surgery, you can anticipate a well-coordinated and supportive environment. Upon arrival, you’ll be warmly greeted by our attentive staff and escorted to a comfortable pre-operative area where you’ll undergo final preparations for the procedure. We will prepare the trifecta of Buccal Fat Removal, Jowl Liposuction, and Chin Liposuction

Before the procedure begins, you’ll receive anesthesia to increase your comfort and minimize any pain or discomfort during the surgery. The type of anesthesia administered will be discussed with you beforehand during your consultation.

Once you’re comfortable, Dr. Yu will make discreet incisions strategically located to access the areas targeted for treatment. These incisions are typically small and placed in inconspicuous locations to minimize visible scarring.

  • Buccal Fat Removal: If you’re undergoing buccal fat removal to reduce chubby cheeks, Dr. Yu will carefully remove excess fat from the cheeks through the incisions made inside the mouth. This step helps sculpt the midface area and create a more defined facial contour.
  • Jowl Liposuction: Next, jowl liposuction is performed to address excess fat deposits in the jowl area along the jawline. Using a small cannula, Dr. Yu will gently suction out unwanted fat, refining the jawline and restoring youthful contours to the lower face.
  • Under-Chin Liposuction: Finally, under-chin liposuction is performed to eliminate stubborn fat beneath the chin and refine the neck contour. This step enhances the definition of the jawline and creates a more balanced and harmonious facial profile.


Once complete, Dr. Yu will close the incisions using sutures. Any necessary dressings or bandages will be applied to protect the incision sites and promote proper healing.

Face Reshaping Recovery

Following your Face Reshaping surgery,  some swelling and bruising are common in the initial days. These temporary effects will gradually diminish, revealing your enhanced facial contours over time. You will need to continue wearing any bandages that were placed and keep them dry until they are due to be removed during your first follow-up appointment. Cleaning and aftercare instructions will be provided, along with a timeline of what to expect as you heal.

Throughout your recovery, you will be provided with personalized care and guidance so that you can obtain the best possible results.
