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
