The fat in the cheek area is referred to as buccal fat. Patients with excessive deposits of fat in the cheek area, with the so-called “chipmunk cheeks,” can see results from this procedure.
A small incision around the cheeks and gums is made to expose the main cheek muscle. Excess fat is removed and the incision closed.
Only a skilled plastic surgeon can determine the appropriate amount of buccal fat to be removed for patients. At The Plastic Surgery Group, our plastic surgeons are board-certified by the American Board of Surgery and have years of experience in buccal fat removal procedures. Patients are reminded that a buccal fat removal procedure will change the look of your face. Setting realistic expectations from your check reduction procedure and discussing those options with your surgeon will help maximize your result.
One of our friendly surgery schedulers will share the surgeons’ credentials, answer questions and schedule a complimentary consultation. Find out if you are a good candidate for a buccal fat removal procedure by calling The Plastic Surgery Group today at 513-791-4440.
