What is buccal fat removal?

Buccal fat removal is an operation done under local anaesthesia. It’s also known as a buccal lipectomy or cheek reduction surgery. Buccal fat removal is a personalised procedure that aims to reduce fat in the cheeks and mid-face area. This involves removing fat from the cheek pad. The procedure can be performed alone to slim the face but is often used in conjunction with other facial rejuvenation procedures like facelift, blepharoplasty, or chin augmentation. Full recovery usually takes about 3 weeks.

Who is a good candidate for buccal fat removal?

Candidates for buccal fat removal are those who are unhappy with round, chubby, or sunken cheeks under the cheekbones. To be a successful candidate, patients should first be at a stable weight and be in generally good health.
