Buccal fat is excessive tissue on the lower part of your cheeks and gum line. Most people call them “Chipmunk Cheeks or Baby Face.” Genetics plays a huge part of chubby cheeks, some grow their cheeks out in adulthood, while others are less fortunate. There is a solution to create the contour look which helps accentuate your cheek bones, with buccal fat reduction.
This procedure is great for patients that have a more round or square face. Buccal fat reduction helps the face look slimmer and contoured into heart or “v” shape face.
Depending on the extent of the procedure, surgery may be performed under either general or local anesthesia. A small incision will be made inside the cheek area, this will allow the buccal fat to be removed showing no visible sign of scarring on the face. Only a small amount will be removed to help slim the cheeks without making the face look too hollow. After the fat is removed, the incision is then closed with dissolvable sutures. These incisions heal quickly with mild discomfort.
