Buccal Fat Removal For Women

Buccal fat removal is a cosmetic surgery procedure that removes the buccal fat pad, a specific area of fat located deep within the cheek. This fat pad contributes to the roundness and fullness of the cheeks.

Creates a more defined and sculpted jawline and cheekbones.
Reduces the appearance of a “baby face” or chubby cheeks.
May enhance self-confidence.
Relatively short surgery with minimal scarring.

Potential for complications like infection, bleeding, or nerve damage.
Results are permanent, so choose carefully.
May lead to a gaunt appearance if too much fat is removed, especially with age-related facial volume loss.
Not a solution for weight loss.

Facial fillers to add volume and definition to specific areas.
Weight loss for a slimmer face, if applicable.
Makeup techniques like contouring to create a more sculpted illusion.

Swelling, bruising, and discomfort are common for several days after surgery.
Dissolvable stitches are often used, eliminating the need for suture removal.
Soft diet and limited physical activity recommended during initial healing.
Most patients return to normal activities within a week or two.
