About Buccal Fat Removal
If you are after a slimmer, more contoured and chiseled look and want to reduce prominent cheeks, our board-certified plastic surgeons at Inspire Cosmetic Surgery and Med Spa can help. We offer a buccal fat removal procedure which specifically targets the cheek area to create a more sculpted look. In this surgery, our surgeon will remove the buccal fat pad tissue, which is naturally found in the cheek hollows. This procedure helps to define your natural cheekbones and will enhance your natural beauty.
The best candidates for buccal fat removal are those patients who are unhappy with chubby cheeks and feel that their face may be rounder and less defined because of the fullness of their cheeks.
What To Expect
During your consultation, your plastic surgeon will examine your cheeks and discuss the removal of the buccal fat tissue. The buccal fat pad varies in size with every patient, so a unique assessment is given. The surgeon will administer the appropriate anesthesia for the surgery. During surgery, there will be a small incision made on the inside of the mouth as well as on the inside of your cheek. The buccal fat pad will be removed and then the incisions will be closed with sutures.
"Dr. Schnitt is one of the few doctors who truly provides the quality of care I expect. His front office assistant (Kristin) was highly professional and very caring. Dr. Schnitt took his time to examine my son and explain everything in detail. He was extremely patient and totally thorough. I was able to contact him directly, before and after surgery. He did an amazing job fixing my son's broken nose. I am deeply grateful and I highly recommend him. JG"- D.G. / Facebook / Mar 24, 2017

"Great service from the professional and accommodating head office coordinator and assistant to the surgeon(same person). Doctor was superior in mannerism and technique...highly recommend and will be back for surgery and injections in the very near future. Not to mention the drive is far, but so worth it! Dr. Goodwin is very particular and has a true gift. I don’t write reviews but this place and team is worthy beyond talent of a worthy tell-all."- A.F. / Google / Sep 14, 2018
"Every single staff member is warm, approachable, knowledgeable, accommodating, kind and cool in their own way. I have been a client since the doors opened and I can’t say enough about this place. It doesn’t feel like a stuffy, serious, pretentious or vain place... No one is picking you apart, telling you you need a nose job when u just came in for a facial (seriously, that has happened to me). They are so good at what they do, so smart and totally down to earth. It’s very easy to trust them."- A.M. / Google / Sep 11, 2018
"Had a great experience here a few weeks ago and brought my daughter there today. We both used Dr. Mark who was great. We really appreciated the help of Cindy who helped pre and post op with her knowledge and positive demeanor. Cindy was so helpful and informative and made the experience even better. We would definitely go back in the future."- J.S. / Yelp / Sep 11, 2018
Following buccal fat removal surgery, the recovery period is generally quite short. Results can be seen immediately, there will typically be some swelling of the cheeks. As this subsides, the results will be a lot more noticeable.
