Buccal Fat Pad Removal

Buccal fat pads (pronounced buckle) are pads of fat resulting from a familial predisposition, giving excessive fullness to the lower part of the cheeks, often resulting in a "chubby cheek" or "chipmunk cheek" appearance. Buccal fat removal, also called cheek reduction surgery, offers a solution to those who want to reduce the excessive fullness of their cheeks.

What can buccal fat removal achieve?

Removal of buccal fat pads can slim the cheeks and contour the face. This can help achieve a more chiseled and sculpted look, by revealing the shape of the natural cheek bones.

The removed buccal fat can also be re-injected into the face to further improve and enhance facial contour. For example, buccal fat can be re-injected into the lips or into the malar (cheek bone) region of the face.

What type of anesthesia is used?

We use IV sedation anesthesia which is an innovative method of anesthesia for facial plastic surgery. You will be given sedating medication that will make you very sleepy during the procedure, however you will be breathing on your own without the need for a breathing tube in your throat. A local anesthetic is also used for your comfort. Most of our patients are able to recover and head home within 30 minutes of the procedure because none of the unwanted side effects from general anesthesia are experienced.

What is the recovery like?

Typically, after buccal fat removal, there is minimal pain. Since the incision is inside the mouth, bruising is also minimal but swelling of the cheeks may take a few days to resolve. Patients are usually able to return to work and social activities after one or two days.
