Facial fat

Dear Doctors I have chubby cheeks/ face puffiness. I did consult a cosmetic specialist when I went to Bombay recently. He checked my face and said your facial fat is less but cheek muscle is dense, that's why your cheeks are looking big, that muscle can be relaxed only when Botox injection is given in sufficient dose which should be given on interval for maintenance. I felt that's a costly issue.I just want to know whether I can take Botox treatment for cheek muscle and also please let me know what can I do to loose my facial puffiness and whom shall I consult.

Hello,  facial puffiness can be due to water retention. This I would suggest reduce your salt intake and increase water intake. Avoid all salted products and products. I hope this tip will help you.
