BUCCAL FAT REMOVAL

BUCCAL FAT REMOVAL SURGERY

A round, full cheek may take away from an aesthetically pleasing facial silhouette. Often referred to as ‘chipmunk cheeks’ or a ‘baby face’, the hereditary condition of plump lower cheeks – comprised of excess Buccal Fat – cannot be remedied through diet or exercise. Buccal Fat Removal is a surgical procedure designed to reduce this fullness in the lower cheek by removing the fat pads, themselves. The procedure can provide a slimmer, smoother cheek; restoring a youthful appearance.

AM I A GOOD CANDIDATE?

An ideal candidate for a Buccal Fat Removal will be an individual with excessive fullness in the lower cheek area. Patients should have realistic surgical expectations, as well as be in generally good health. Both men and women can benefit from the Buccal Fat Removal procedure.

A consultation appointment with our doctor will be set up prior to scheduling the Buccal Fat Removal. During this visit, our doctors will perform a brief physical examination, review medical history, listen to a patient’s hopes for the surgery, and further explain the procedure’s details. If a patient is considered the right fit for a Buccal Fat Removal, and individual surgical plan will be established.

RECOVERY FROM THIS PROCEDURE

There is very little downtime after a Buccal Fat Removal procedure. Only minor swelling and bruising may occur; the recovery is also relatively pain free. Most patients will feel and look well enough to return to work the next day. Results from a Buccal Fat Removal will be immediately noticeable, but as the swelling fully dissipates, the complete results will be apparent. There is no visible scarring after a Buccal Fat Removal, as our doctor uses only intraoral (inside the cheek) incisions.
