Buccal Fat Pad Reduction
The Buccal Fat Pad is a collection of fat that lies in the cheek between the mouth and the skin. This collection of fatty tissue is what often provides the fullness of the cheeks. While we are you and developing this full cheeked appearance is often associated with youth but often in a “I wanna pinch those cute cheeks” kind of way. As we age some individuals maintain this cheek fullness. Removing fat from the cheeks is a procedure than can be easily accomplished with little to no evidence that a procedure was even performed. By removing excessive fullness from the cheeks, definition is created.
Many of our patients are often worried about down time following a procedure. Buccal Fat Pad reduction is one of those procedures that is performed through the mouth and while it is often performed under IV Sedation has little post operative discomfort. On occasion patients do have minor bruising but the majority are back to work in a day to two.
Buccal Fat Pad reduction is one of the best ways to treat the overly full face, providing much needed definition with minimal downtime to the patient. Give us a call today if you are interested in learning more about Buccal Fat Pad Reduction.
