Slim Your Facial Features
If you’re displeased with the roundness of your face and wish you had a more slender contour, buccal fat removal may be a good option. Buccal fat removal involves removing the buccal fat pads that are stored in the cheeks that cannot be lost with normal diet and exercise. This procedure can transform a face that has fullness and a rounded appearance to a more slender elegant facial contour.
Am I a Good Candidate For buccal fat removal?
You are an ideal candidate for buccal fat removal:
- If you have excess fat in your cheek area just above the lower jaw bone
- If you are bothered by your full cheeks, “baby face” or “chipmunk face”
- If you’d like a more defined, contoured face
Buccal Fat Removal Treatment
Buccal fat removal is a relatively quick and straightforward procedure that takes about one hour. During a buccal fat removal, Dr. Brown will access the inside of your cheek, make a small incision, extract the fat, and close the wound with dissolvable stitches.

How Long Does a Typical Treatment Take?
Buccal fat removal is a fairly simple procedure that can be completed in about 30-minutes. It can be performed on its own or alongside another procedure. It can be done in the office under local anesthesia and anti-anxiety medication or under general anesthesia in the operating room.
What Results Will I See?*
- (1) Slimmer facial contours
- (2) Less fat in the cheek area
- (3) A more narrow like facial structure
Is There Any Downtime?
After buccal fat removal, you may experience a bit of swelling and soreness inside of the cheek. Fortunately, this can be treated with over-the-counter pain medications. You can resume your regular routine after a few days and will enjoy the final results once all swelling has subsided.
