Buccal Fat Pad Removal in Atlanta, GA

Buccal fat pad removal is designed to improve lower facial aesthetics. This procedure is optimal for patients wanting to reduce prominent or excessively round “chipmunk” cheeks, or to accentuate an existing high/prominent cheek bones.

How Does Cheek Reduction Improve Facial Appearance?

The removal of buccal fat-pad tissue through a small incision inside the mouth allows the surgeon to contour your facial appearance and provide a more sculpted, refined lower face and cheek.

Buccal Fat Pad Removal Surgery and Recovery

Cheek reduction surgery takes 30 minutes to 1 hour to complete and can be done in-office. It generally takes 7-10 days for the mouth incision (inside mouth opposite upper molar) to heal. Patients are advised to maintain a soft diet for 3-4 days after surgery. Swelling typically dissipates within 2-3 weeks.*

Buccal Fat Pad Removal Surgery Results

The final result from buccal fat removal will be visible several months after surgery once the swelling has subsided.* The surgery usually results in a thinner, more contoured lower facial appearance.
