The facial area may gain excess fat over time, depending on aging or gaining weight. The contour of the face may be reshaped by removing excess fat from the cheek.
Buccal Fat Removal is a surgical procedure also known as “cheek contouring”. The natural structure of the cheeks has buccal fat pads that intensify as one gets older or gains excessive weight, and as a result a plump-cheeked appearance occurs. This is an area of fat that is difficult to lose. Therefore, cheek contouring procedure targets exactly these buccal fat pads.
The targeted area with fat absorption from the cheek is the buccal fat pad inside the cheek where small incisions are opened from the inside of the mouth. Excess fat on the cheeks is then removed. The procedure takes about 30 minutes and is performed under local anesthesia.
The healing process varies depending on the technique applied in the absorption of fat from the cheek and the general skin structure of the person. The visibility of the final results of the procedure may take a few weeks. The results of cheek fat absorption are permanent. Therefore, it is advised to have a detailed consultation with the plastic surgeon about the whole process before deciding to perform such surgery.
