Buccal Fat Removal at South Coast Plastic Surgery

Do you feel as though your cheeks are too large or too prominent for your face? Do you want a slimmer look to your face? Then you might be a good candidate for Buccal Fat Removal at South Coast Plastic Surgery in Ladera, CA!

What is Buccal Fat Removal?

Buccal fat removal is a minor surgical procedure designed to remove some fat from the facial cheek region. This procedure is an excellent option for patients who feel as though their cheeks are too round or large for their faces, leading to a full or even chubby appearance. Buccal fat removal can help patients achieve a more balanced facial appearance – and that can be a huge boost for their self-confidence! It can also create a slimmer look for women and a more chiseled look for men.

How Does It Work?

Buccal fat removal is performed under local or general anesthesia, depending on the patient’s tolerance. Your plastic surgeon will carefully remove small portions of fat from the cheeks in order to produce the patient’s desired appearance. Your surgeon won’t remove all cheek fat, as this could produce a gaunt or hollow appearance in patients as they get older.

Am I a Good Candidate For Buccal Fat Removal?

You’re a good candidate for buccal fat removal if you feel as though your cheeks are too large or prominent, and it’s causing your face to look unbalanced or even “chubby”. All candidates need to be healthy nonsmoking individuals who have realistic expectations for this procedure. If you are looking for a slimmer or more angular face, this may be a great option for you.

What is the Recovery Like?*

Recovery is straightforward, as this procedure isn’t particularly invasive or time-intensive.
