Buccal Fat Removal

Are you looking to address your overly full cheeks and achieve a more sculpted appearance? Buccal Fat Removal is a procedure that reduces the size of the cheeks, highlighting your facial structure and providing a more balanced and refined appearance. Learn how Buccal Fat Removal at Rostami OPC can enhance your appearance and confidence. 

What is Buccal Fat Removal?

Buccal Fat Removal, or cheek reduction surgery, involves removing the buccal fat pads in the lower part of the cheeks. While these pads give the face its soft, rounded contours, excessive buccal fat can be an area of insecurity for many. This procedure can be performed on its own or with other facial procedures, such as facelifts or brow lifts, to create a more balanced overall look.

Candidates for Buccal Fat Removal

Ideal candidates for Buccal Fat Removal are those who feel their face is too round or full and are looking for a more sculpted appearance. Patients need to have realistic expectations and understand that this procedure is designed to enhance facial contours rather than serve as a solution for general weight loss. The best way to determine whether buccal fat removal suits your cosmetic goals is by scheduling a private consultation with one of our expert surgeons at Rostami OPC in Mclean, Virginia. During your consultation at Rostami OPC, our specialists will evaluate your facial structure, discuss your aesthetic goals, and determine if Buccal Fat Removal suits you.

Buccal Fat Removal Treatment

The Buccal Fat Removal procedure at Rostami OPC is performed under local anesthesia and typically takes one hour to complete. Our skilled surgeons make a small incision inside the mouth. Through this hidden incision, they carefully extract the appropriate amount of buccal fat, ensuring a natural-looking reduction that complements your facial features.
