What is Buccal Fat Removal

“Buccal” refers to the Latin word “cheek”. Buccal fat removal is also known as cheek reduction and it’s normally considered by people who loses weight everywhere but their faces.

Chubby cheeks (or chipmunk cheeks) can be caused by genetic factors or weight gain, resulting in a fuller, plump face. When we are young, plump and rosy cheeks are considered cute. But as we age, it may sag and disturb facial harmony. The buccal fat removal helps create a slimmer face by removing these fat pads from the cheeks.

Benefits of Buccal Fat Removal:

  • More proportional facial appearance
  • More defined cheek contour
  • Face appears slimmer
  • Sculpture-like facial structure
