Buccal fat removal, or cheek reduction surgery, is a simple surgical procedure to remove large, deep fat pads in the mid-cheek area. By removing the buccal fat pad, both men and women can achieve a slimmer and more contoured facial structure, resolving a rounded, “baby-faced” look while creating a more refined facial structure.
Am I a Candidate?
Candidates for buccal fat removal are typically men and women in their 20s to 50s who have excessively round cheeks. During your initial consultation, Dr. Sulyman-Scott will thoroughly examine your unique facial structure to determine whether cheek reduction is an appropriate procedure for you. Buccal fat removal may be suitable for you if you:
- Have a round or baby-like face
- Have excessively full cheeks, or “chipmunk cheeks”
- Would prefer to have a more structured, chiseled facial appearance
- Can’t reduce chubby cheeks despite a healthy lifestyle and exercise
