What is Buccal Fat Removal?

Buccal fat removal surgery, also known as buccal fat pad reduction, is a procedure to remove excess fat from the cheeks. Since most resting faces do not have prominent cheekbones, many people opt to have buccal fat removal for a more elegant appearance. In this case, buccal-fat removal can be used to create a more chiseled look. Buccal fat removal can also be used to balance out a patient’s face and create symmetry in the face. With buccal fat removal surgery, a small incision is made on the inside of the mouth to remove excess fat. After buccal fat removal, the face will appear thinner and more chiseled.

Good Candidates for Buccal Fat Removal

Buccal fat removal is ideal for people with round faces or who do not like prominent cheeks. Many buccal fat removal patients feel that they have “chubby cheeks” or a “baby face.” It can also be used to contour the face, carve out cheekbones and make them appear more defined. If you’re looking for a way to maintain your youthful appearance and want something quick, effective, and non-invasive, buccal fat removal may be right for you.

Talking to Your Doctor About Buccal Fat Removal
