With all the incisions made on the inside of the mouth, there are no visible scars left on your face or cheeks. And with little to no recovery time, it's never been easier to say goodbye to those stubborn chubby cheeks forever!
Buccal fat reduction reduces the buccal fat pad, a naturally-occurring pad of fat in the cheek hollow area. The goal of buccal fat reduction is to thin the cheeks, specifically in the area of the cheek hollows.
Swelling and bruising post-treatment are common. It generally takes about seven to ten days for the tissues inside the mouth to recover following buccal fat pad removal. As such, a patient may need to maintain a soft or semi-liquid diet in the first few days after surgery. Typically, patients are fully recovered in about 2 weeks and the full recovery takes about 3-6 months. The results are permanent.
BeautyFix Plastic Surgery is proud to offer multiple financing options to help patients cover the full cost of their treatment. Your surgery team will work to devise a plan that will help you get your dream body while maintaining a comfortable budget. CheekFix: Buccal Fat Reduction financing plans start at just $89/month.
Real People. Real Results.
What is buccal fat?
Buccal Fat is a rounded mass of the fat in your cheeks between the facial muscles. Everyone has buccal fat; however, the size of the buccal fat pads varies from one patient to another. Depending on your facial structure, genetics, and other factors, the buccal fat pad may be larger than others, giving a “chubby cheek” appearance. You also may see asymmetry due to the potential different sizes in the buccal fat pads.
How is Buccal Fat Reduction performed?
The surgery begins with skin markings on the lower cheeks, followed by the injection of numbing medication into the cheeks. The surgery is performed under local anesthesia. Then, a small incision is made intraorally just near the upper molar teeth. The optimal amount of buccal fat is then carefully teased out to restore facial harmony. It is performed under local anesthesia. The surgery takes about 30 mins.
How long do results last?
Buccal fat reduction is a permanent solution to reducing the size of your cheeks. Once the fat is reduced, it does not grow back.
Is it painful?
There is little to no discomfort. Patients are treated with local anesthesia prior to the treatment. This is an outpatient procedure that takes about an hour.
