Buccal Fat Removal at Southern California Center for Surgical Arts

Welcome to Southern California Center for Surgical Arts, where we offer buccal fat removal procedures to help you achieve a more contoured and sculpted facial appearance. Buccal fat removal, also known as cheek reduction surgery, is a surgical procedure designed to reduce excess fat in the cheeks, resulting in a slimmer and more defined facial contour. Here's what you need to know:

What Is Buccal Fat Removal?

Buccal fat removal is a cosmetic surgical procedure that targets the buccal fat pads, which are located in the cheeks. These fat pads can contribute to a round or chubby appearance in the lower face. During the procedure, the buccal fat pads are carefully removed to create a more sculpted and defined cheek contour.

Who Is a Candidate for Buccal Fat Removal?

Ideal candidates for buccal fat removal are individuals who have excess fat in the cheeks, resulting in a round or chubby facial appearance. Candidates should be in good overall health and have realistic expectations about the outcome of the procedure.

What Can I Expect During a Buccal Fat Removal Procedure?

During the procedure, small incisions are made inside the mouth, allowing for access to the buccal fat pads. The fat pads are then carefully dissected and removed, creating a slimmer and more defined cheek contour. The incisions are closed with dissolvable sutures, leaving no visible scarring on the face.

Is Buccal Fat Removal Safe?

Buccal fat removal is generally considered safe when performed by a qualified and experienced plastic surgeon. Our team at Southern California Center for Surgical Arts prioritizes patient safety and takes all necessary precautions to minimize risks associated with the procedure.

What Is Recovery Like After Buccal Fat Removal?

After buccal fat removal, patients may experience swelling, bruising, and mild discomfort, which can be managed with pain medication and proper post-operative care. Most patients are able to return to work and normal activities within one to two weeks of the procedure.

How Long Do Buccal Fat Removal Results Last?

The results of buccal fat removal are long-lasting, although individual results may vary. With proper care and maintenance, the effects of buccal fat removal can last for many years, helping patients achieve a more sculpted and defined facial contour.
