Buccal Fat Removal Surgery (Cheek Reduction Procedure)

Removal of buccal fat pads (cheek reduction surgery) is an office-based surgical procedure designed to remove the baby fat (chubby cheeks or “chipmunk cheeks”) that in many patient persists through adulthood, creating a fuller rounded facial shape that many patients seek to have eliminated. Taking less than 45 minutes in most cases to perform, it involves the removal of the collection of fat through a small incision made inside of the mouth (so there’s no visible scarring). Rather than liposuction, the fat is gently teased out, allowing it to be removed as one large collection of fat, as shown in the photo below. Several sutures that dissolve are placed to close the incisions, and healing is within a matter of a few days, with minimal to no discomfort nor bruising, minimizing the risks involved in any type of surgical procedure.
