Buccal Fat Removal

Buccal fat are fat pads that augment the lower part of the cheeks. These are responsible for  “chubby cheeks” and can result from weight gain and resolute predetermined genetic predisposition. Buccal fat removal provides a solution to help those who want to achieve a more chiseled look by reducing the size of their cheeks. Removal of these fat pads therefore results in slimmer silhouette thereby enhancing the facial contour.

This procedure is performed on an outpatient basis with local anesthesia and takes about 20 minutes to complete. A 2cm incision is made inside the mouth on each side of the cheeks, through which the buccal fat is removed. This leaves no external surgical scars. Stitch removal will not be required as absorbable sutures are used to close the incision.
