Anti-agingBUCCAL FAT REMOVAL

Buccal fat is the deeper fatty tissue of the cheek and the mid-face. Usually when one ages, this excess fat starts sagging and creates jowls and deep marionette lines. Buccal fat removal involves reduction of this concentrated fat tissue compartment to give an overall slimmer face and defined cheek contouring. This can be combined with a face lift and other cosmetic procedures for longer lasting results.

Buccal Fat Removal can Benefit

  1. 1. Those who want a slimmer face
  2. 2. People with sagging jowls
  3. 3. People with substantially plump cheeks

How is Buccal Fat Removal Performed?

Using a 1.5cm long intra oral incision, the deep fat tissue is removed, leaving no visible scar. Absorbable sutures are used for a faster recovery process.
