Buccal Fat Removal

Also called ‘Cheek Reduction Surgery’, this procedure aims to remove the buccal fat pad in the cheeks. The outcome is to thin the cheek and contour midface angles. This surgery may be combined with other types of plastic surgery, such as facelift, lip augmentation, or rhinoplasty. The incision will be made inside the cheeks and the fat will be removed. The candidate for this procedure is people with disproportionate or excessive puffy cheek. Buccal fat removal is not ideal for people with thin and narrow faces or ageing people, because it would create an older look of the face along the age. People with progressive hemifacial atrophy (Parry-Romber syndrome) also do not benefit from this procedure. Preparation may include a detailed history of medical issues, medication history, and physical examination.
