10 Minute Buccal Fat Reduct


Buccal fat pad reduction is a simple procedure to decrease fullness in the cheeks and face. A small incision is made inside the mouth and the fat pad is exposed and reduced. This produces a moderate reduction of fullness in the lower cheek. This procedure is not a substitute for weight loss and makes a subtle difference. Taking excess fat from this area can produce hollowing so it is important for the surgeon to be experienced in this procedure. The recovery is generally less than a week but the final result may not be apparent for up to 6 weeks.
