Chrissy Teigen has been open in the past about having plastic surgery, and now she has a new procedure to share: She had fat removed from her cheeks.

It’s called a buccal fat removal procedure, and Chrissy opened up about it in her Instagram Stories on Tuesday. The procedure, the 35-year-old shared, was done by her go-to plastic surgeon Dr. Jason Diamond. “No shame in my Dr. Diamond game,” she wrote over the video.

"I did that Dr. Diamond buccal fat removal thing here," Chrissy said in the video, showing off her defined-looking cheeks. "Since I quit drinking, I'm really seeing the results." Chrissy also said she wasn’t embarrassed to talk about the work she had done. “I like it. Yeah, I did it—what?”

Never heard of buccal fat removal before? Same same.

The goal of the procedure is to thin the cheeks, especially in the area of the cheek hollows, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Buccal fat removal specifically removes the buccal fat pad, which naturally is in the cheek hollow area. That pad is different with each person and it can even vary from cheek to cheek in the same person.

Buccal fat removal cost varies by where you live. It ranges between $2,000-$5,000, according to Healthline. (FWIW: The American Society of Plastic Surgeons says this procedure usually isn’t done in people with thin, narrow faces, since it can make them look gaunt as they get older.)

Chrissy has shared plenty of information about her past plastic surgery procedures. In July 2020, she showed scars on her Instagram Stories from her surgery to remove her breast implants. Chrissy also said on Instagram that her implants “have been great to me for many years but I’m just over it. I’d like to be able to zip a dress in my size, lay on my belly with pure comfort! No biggie! So don’t worry about me!”

She also revealed in 2019 that she gets Botox in her armpits to keep her from sweating in the area. Chrissy even shared a video of herself getting her armpits Botoxed, writing, “BOTOXED MY ARMPITS. TRULY BEST MOVE I HAVE EVER MADE.”

You do you, Chrissy!
