Have You Always Wanted a Chiseled Face? Learn About Buccal Fat Removal

Baby face? Chipmunk cheeks? Buccal fat removal can slim down the appearance of your face for a more chiseled appearance. Discover that sculpted look you’ve always wanted; ask us about buccal fat removal.

What Is Buccal Fat Removal?

Buccal fat removal is a cosmetic surgical procedure that removes the fat located in the lower cheek. This pad of fat often causes facial roundness; removing them can create a more defined, sculpted appearance in the cheek area. It is an excellent treatment option for “baby fat” and “chipmunk cheeks”.

Why Do I Have Excess Fat in My Cheeks?

Enlarged buccal fat pads are often caused by weight gain (lose the weight and the problem should resolve) but, for some patients, genetics play a factor in the problem. Come see Dr. Sajjadian to determine if you’re a good candidate for buccal fat removal.

What Should I Expect from Buccal Fat Removal?

Buccal fat removal is a fairly simple procedure with limited downtime and no bruising. During the surgery, small incisions are made inside of the cheek through which a portion of the fat pad is removed. The remaining portion is then reformed and shaped for an attractive appearance. The procedure doesn’t take long and is fairly simple in the hands of a skilled, experienced surgeon like Dr. Sajjadian.

Most patients find the recovery process to be relatively quick and practically painless. Dr. Sajjadian will help you determine when you can safely return to work and regular activities after surgery. Results take several weeks to appear due to the time it takes for swelling to resolve. Patients can typically see their new look at about 4-6 weeks post-surgery.

How to Get the Best Results from Your Buccal Fat Removal

If you’re thinking about buccal fat removal, come see triple board certified Dr. Sajjadian for a consultation. Choosing the right surgeon is essential, as removing too much of the fat pad can lead to a gaunt, older appearance. Work with a highly experienced, board certified plastic surgeon who has experience performing this procedure. Not all surgeons are comfortable with buccal fat removal.
