Buccal Fat Pad Removal
Buccal fat pad removal is a surgical procedure used to reduce the facial fat in the lower part of the cheeks to achieve a more sculpted appearance. By removing the cheek fat in the lower part of the face, the cheekbones appear higher and the face appears more slender and chiseled.
Buccal fat pads are distinct pockets of fat in the lower cheeks that largely determine how round or full an individual’s face may appear. Large buccal fat pads give the appearance of a chubbier face. Buccal fat pad removal, therefore, reduces cheek volume, resulting in a slimmer and more contoured facial appearance.
A buccal fat removal procedure is frequently combined with liposuction of the neck to achieve an overall contoured and chiseled appearance of the lower face, chin, jawline, and neck.
