What is this about?

The Buccal Fat pads are located between the cheek and jawbones. Large buccal fat pads can make the face look round and puffy, compromising the contours of the face and negatively affecting facial aesthetics. A buccal fat pad removal slims the face by removing part or all of the pads to produce an angled and defined midface contour.

For many people, chubby cheeks are a source of embarrassment. Cheek fat that causes fullness in the cheek area can be genetic, meaning that it’s just about impossible to achieve the look of slim, defined cheekbones without fat pad removal surgery. Chubby cheeks and overly-prominent fat pads can create a “baby face” look and obscure the cheekbones.

Cheek Reduction by removal of buccal fat offers several facial cosmetic surgery benefits: reduction of lower cheek volume, enhancement upper cheek and cheekbone contour from the lower cheek hollows, triangulation of facial shape and facial contour, creation of a more slender, narrower facial contour, reduction of facial fullness or plumpness, cheekbones may appear higher with more definition with buccal fat reduction, improvement in balance of facial proportions contour, upper to lower cheek ratio, men: more chiseled jawline and cheeks, women: more sculpted lower facial contour.

What results could you expect?

Once the buccal fat has been excised, the small incision is closed dissolvable sutures. These absorbable sutures allow for proper healing of the incision. The oral incisions heal quickly. Any resulting scars are hidden on the inside of the mouth, completely hidden from view.

You won not be able to see the full results of your surgery until the swelling has completely subsided. This typically takes between 4-6 weeks. Many patients have no visible bruising during recovery. Since the incision is made inside of the cheek, you won not have any visible incisions or scarring during and after the healing process.
