Lea Michele Shared Some Selfies And That Led To Talk About Buccal Fat Removal

December 15, 2022 / Posted by:

Lea Michele is getting some attention, but it’s not about race or bullying this time! Lea shared selfies on her Instagram, and social media lit up about buccal fat removal–the new procedure allegedly making its way through the women of Hollywood like Pete Davidson. Lea’s name was tossed around with other women, and people started talking about the hot new insecurity people can have about their faces. But, of course, like all superficial cosmetic things, there’s a medical downside. so before you vacuum your cheeks to fit in with weirdos, consult a professional!

Lea shared sexyfaced pics on Instagram of her putting her lip filler to the test by pouting so much, but that wasn’t even what people focused on. Lea’s cheeks looked gaunt, and some immediately called out the buccal fat trend. I think what’s worse is that Lea made a White Lotus reference by (WHITE LOTUS SPOILER ALERT) captioning the pics with, “Lucia the morning after she played albie.” Lea wishes she had it like Lucia! Twitter also showed other examples of Hollywood-types getting that sunken cheek look:

The Shade Room explains the buccal fat removal procedure like this:

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the procedure is meant to “thin the cheeks” by removing a patient’s buccal fat pads.

“The goal of buccal fat removal is to thin the cheeks, specifically in the area of the cheek hollows… A buccal fat removal removes the buccal fat pad, a naturally-occurring pad of fat in the cheek hollow area. The size of the buccal fat pad varies with each individual patient, and the buccal fat pad in each cheek may be different sizes.”

It’s also noted that “removal of the fat may cause the face to look more gaunt with age.”

Hear that? Let’s check back in with these buccal fat baddies in a few decades when they have to refill that shit in. Meanwhile, proud round-cheeked ladies are online fighting for their rights:

I’m sure it’s just a matter of time before the Pillsbury Dough Boy pops up on the scene with some gaunt, vampiric cheeks. Do you think it’s just human people these trends affect? Our cartoon and CGI mascots can have high cosmetic standards as well! Now we know what all those standing ovations were for that Lea got performing in Funny Girl. Clearly, the audience was so amazed by the hard work of Lea’s surgeon that they had to stand up and applaud.
