About Buccal Fat Removal

While many of our Las Vegas area patients desire fuller cheeks and more mid-face volume, many clients are seeking to reduce the volume in this area. If you are seeking a slimmer, more contoured facial look and want to reduce prominent cheeks, Las Vegas board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Christopher Khorsandi with VIP Plastic Surgery can help with buccal fat removal. Also known as cheek fat reduction, this facial cosmetic treatment specifically targets the cheek area to reduce fat and tissue in the mid-face for a more sculpted look. During this process, Dr. Khorsandi precisely and delicately removes the buccal fat pad tissue, which is naturally found in the cheek hollows. He then repositions and redefines the area so that your cheekbones have a natural look with renewed, enhanced beauty. If you have chubby cheeks or cheekbones that are hidden under excess fat and tissue, call VIP Plastic Surgery to learn more.

Best Candidates

The best candidates for buccal fat removal are those patients who are self-conscious or unhappy with their mid-face and feel as though they have chubby cheeks. They dislike the rounder, less defined appearance that their cheeks bring to their face and wish to decrease this aspect for a slimmer, more defined look. Buccal fat removal is a growing treatment among patients who have lived with chubby cheeks and simply want a simple solution to look sharper and more contoured. 

What To Expect

During your consultation at VIP Plastic Surgery, Dr. Khorsandi will examine your cheeks and discuss the removal of the buccal fat tissue. Depending on how much tissue and fat resides under and around the cheekbones will help Dr. Khorsandi create a custom approach for treatment. During the surgery, anesthesia is given and a small incision is made on the inside of the mouth, as well as on the inside of your cheek. The buccal fat pad will be removed, and then the incisions will be closed with sutures. Many times, the cheekbones may need to be slightly repositioned. This can be done with sutures for a natural result. 

Other Considerations

Following buccal fat removal surgery, patients will experience some bruising, swelling, and minor discomfort as the facial structure adheres to its new size. The overall recovery period is generally quite short. The great news is that immediately following this treatment, even with some swelling, the results can be seen immediately. Once the swelling is gone and the cheeks adjust to their new position, optimal results can be revealed leaving patients with a slimmer, more contoured and well-defined cheek area.
