Introduction to Buccal Fat Removal

Buccal Fat Removal is a cosmetic surgical procedure offered at BeautyBlade Plastic Surgery in Denver, CO aimed at reducing the volume of buccal fat pads in the cheeks to achieve a more sculpted and defined facial appearance.

What is Buccal Fat Removal?

Buccal Fat Removal, also known as cheek reduction surgery, is a procedure that targets the buccal fat pads located in the lower part of the cheeks. These fat pads can contribute to a round or excessively full appearance of the cheeks, and the surgery involves the strategic removal or reduction of this fat to create a slimmer and more contoured face.

How Does Buccal Fat Removal Work?

During the Buccal Fat Removal procedure at BeautyBlade Plastic Surgery, Dr. Samir Hasan makes small incisions inside the cheeks. Through these incisions, the buccal fat pads are delicately accessed and reduced or partially removed. The amount of fat removed is determined by the patient’s desired outcome and facial structure.

Benefits of Buccal Fat Removal

Buccal Fat Removal can effectively sculpt and refine facial contours, especially in individuals with excessively round or chubby cheeks, providing a slimmer appearance.

Who is a Suitable Candidate for Buccal Fat Removal?

What Results Can I Expect from Buccal Fat Removal?

Buccal Fat Removal can result in a more sculpted and slimmer appearance in the lower face, specifically the cheek area. Patients may achieve a more defined cheekbone structure and a less round or chubby facial appearance.
