A Thinner Face Awaits

A Thinner Face Awaits

While fat in the face is not necessarily a bad thing, in excess, facial fat can cause one to appear bloated, older, and heavier than they actually are. At Oklahoma City’s Cosmetic Surgery Center, we strive to create a look that you feel good about and are comfortable with. We understand the importance of a slim and contoured face and are pleased to help you along your journey. 
Finding yourself in need of a facial slim down? Try these tricks:

Drink More Water

We all know that we should be drinking eight glasses of water a day, but few of us do. Here is one more reason to try: boosting the metabolism by up to 3%, water also helps flush out toxins from the body—cleansing and cleaning the body of extra water weight. Need another reason to stay hydrated? Water can help stave off hunger. 

Cut Out Salt

It should come as no surprise that salt is a common culprit when it comes to facial bloating. A shockingly high number (90%) of Americans eat a diet that is too high in sodium. Eating too much salt causes the body to hold onto and retain fluids. The American Heart Association recommends that one should consume less that 1500mg of sodium a day. Keep in mind: the majority of sodium in our diet comes from processed and commercially prepared foods—not our salt shaker. In fact, according to the CDC, a whopping 77% of sodium comes from processed and restaurant foods.

Yoga for the Face

Although it may sound farfetched, simple exercises that target facial muscles can help shape and contour facial features. One to try: To burn fat from your cheeks, make overly-exaggerated movements as you mouth the letters x and o. Work your way up to 10 sets. You may feel silly, but the benefits are well worth it!


Diet and exercise can only do so much. Liposuction is an excellent way to permanently remove facial fat and slim down your lower face, neck, and chin. Through a small and carefully placed incision, Dr. Benien gently breaks up and suctions out fat cells. Stubborn pockets of fat are targeted to create a svelte and sculpted profile. By removing excess fat, liposuction of the neck reduces the appearance of a double chin while creating a defined and contoured jawline. 

A relatively quick procedure, liposuction of the neck typically lasts under one hour. Side effects are minimal, consisting of minor swelling and light bruising. Most patients find it beneficial to take a few days to rest and recover—resuming their daily activities within one to two weeks. To help aid in your recovery, Dr. Benien will provide a chin strap.

I love the patience Dr. Benien has to explain the procedure; he listens to all your questions and answers them without making you feel he is in a rush to be done with your consultation appointment.

“I want my patients to feel like a better version of themselves.”

Dr. Fogleman and Dr. Benien create elegant, natural results with each surgical procedure or non-surgical treatment they perform. "Quality outcomes," as they say. Their goal is not to make their patients look different – they strive to make them look better, never overdone or obvious.
