What is Buccal Fat Removal?

One of the reasons why cheek fat can be hard to lose is because of the buccal fat pad. This is a pocket of fat that naturally exists in the cheeks. Some people will have smaller pads due to genetics, while others may have larger ones that result in a rounded face regardless of how much you diet or exercise. Buccal fat removal is a quick procedure that removes this pad, providing a contoured result for a more dynamic appearance and expression.

Benefits of Buccal Fat Removal

  • Enhanced facial contours
  • A slimmer look
  • Improved structural balance
  • Quick, efficient procedure
  • No visible scarring
  • Long-lasting results

Am I a Candidate for Buccal Fat Removal?

This procedure could be ideal for you if you want to slim down your cheeks and remove stubborn fat. For many patients, diet and exercise simply aren’t enough to get the facial contours they want.

The first step is to schedule your consultation with Dr. Sykes and discuss your buccal fat removal in Beverly Hills. Based on your goals, he can work with you to find your optimal solution, whether it be buccal fat removal, another approach, or a personalized combination of our various options. Contact us today to lock in your consultation for buccal fat pad surgery and learn more about how we can help you get a lasting facial contour.

What is the Procedure Like?

For most patients, their procedure for buccal fat removal will only take about half an hour to an hour. Since we make all the incisions inside the mouth, you will not need to worry about visible scarring. Instead, all people will see are your positive results! 

Some patients may combine this procedure with other cosmetic surgeries to create a more transformative outcome. In these cases, the total duration of the surgery can be a bit longe

We discuss your anesthesia options before your procedure, looking for the best choice. In every case, we ensure you are entirely comfortable throughout your procedure for a stress-free experience.

The Recovery Process

The initial recovery after your cheek fat removal will last about one week, and we advise patients to avoid work or strenuous activity during this time. Our goal is for you to heal up perfectly so you can get the most out of your results. We also provide you with medical prescriptions and complete instructions to manage any pain, swelling, or other side effects of the surgery. With plenty of rest and care, your recovery should progress smoothly, with your new aesthetic becoming more visible each day.

When Can I See the Results?

Once the buccal fat has been removed, it is gone for good. As your swelling goes down, you will begin to see your new facial aesthetic take shape. The good news is the fat is gone, and with a healthy lifestyle, you can see your results last for years up to a lifetime! Most patients will see their swelling decrease within about one month, though you will begin to see your results before this. After the swelling has fully disappeared, you can enjoy your results for years to come, looking in the mirror with confidence and pride in your appearance.
