Buccal Fat Pad Removal

Many women might have realized that puffy cheeks are not proportionate with the body, which subsequently result in a chubby appearance. Indeed, buccal fat pad is an encapsulated fat mass underneath the muscles in the cheeks, which causes puffiness. Buccal fat can be divided into two layers: subcutaneous fat and buccal fat pad.

In general, subcutaneous fat is not the main cause of chubby cheeks. The recommended treatment for chubby cheeks is buccal fat pad removal, which is an uncomplicated surgery that delivers visible results.

  3. Anesthetic drug is injected into both cheeks.
  4. Incision is performed to remove the buccal fat pad from both cheeks. The incision is stitched with absorbable sutures (suture removal is not required). The duration of surgery is approximately 40 minutes.
