Buccal Fat Removal

Round “chipmunk cheeks” can contribute to a childish facial appearance. You may feel that your “baby face” is preventing you from getting treated with the respect you deserve, or maybe you prefer the aesthetic look of more defined facial angles and contours. When your round face isn’t the result of weight gain there is little you can do to help slim its appearance. Buccal fat removal is designed to remove fat from the cheek area for a more defined and mature facial definition.

Achieved With Buccal Fat Removal

Angular, sculpted cheekbones can enhance your natural beauty. However, people with round faces tend to lack these pleasing facial angles. For many people the solution would be to utilize facial fillers to restore volume and sculpt new angles. However, this doesn’t work for people with round faces. Adding volume to an already shapely face will cause the face to appear puffy rather than sculpted. The buccal fat procedure removes fat to reveal the natural angles of your cheeks. This slims your facial appearance and enhances your facial contours.

What Does Buccal Fat Removal Entail?

Buccal fat removal is a quick and efficient office-based procedure usually taking less than an hour to complete. After administering local anesthesia small incisions are made on the inside surface of the cheeks and the fat pads are easily and safely removed. Usually the entire fat pad is removed but it does depend on an individual’s existing anatomy and facial contour. The incisions are closed with a few dissolvable sutures.
