Buccal Fat Reduction
Reduction of the buccal fat pad is a common cosmetic procedure that is performed in order to slim the lower third of the face. Patients who are concerned about chubby “chipmunk cheeks” often elect to undergo this procedure in order to accentuate the cheek bones and create a more sculpted appearance. This procedure is commonly performed under a light sedation, and is usually associated with minimal bruising or swelling, resulting in very little downtime. The incisions made to access the buccal fat pad are created inside the mouth, so there are no external incisions or visible scars. The buccal fat is carefully reduced in order to provide the desired facial contour, but complete removal of the fat pad is not recommended, as this can result in a gaunt appearance that will make the patient look aged and unhealthy, particularly over time.
