Chubby cheeks might be cute in babies and little children. But most people want chiseled and angular facial contours when they grow older. But if you have chubby cheeks with excess fat pads in your adult years, you have one solution — buccal fat removal.
The Solution to Chipmunk Cheeks
If you’re often told that you have chipmunk cheeks or a baby face, you may have large buccal fat pads. Buccal fat refers to the excess fat deposits stored in the lower cheeks. Most people lose excess fat deposits in the cheeks as they grow older, but some retain them well into adulthood, leading to the appearance of a baby face. We perform a personalized buccal fat removal to help you achieve a slimmer facial profile.
What is Buccal Fat Removal?
Buccal fat removal is a surgical technique that carefully removes excess buccal fat tissues from the cheeks. The surgeon makes a strategic incision inside the mouth, following which the unwanted buccal fat is squeezed out. This procedure instantly reduces the fullness of the cheeks, making your face look slimmer and more contoured. This is the only solution to chipmunk cheeks because the buccal fat deposits don’t respond to exercise and dieting.
Benefits of Buccal Fat Removal:
- Remove excess fat deposits from the cheeks
- Achieve slender and sculpted facial contours
- Performed as a simple, in-office surgery
- Incision made inside the mouth, so no visible scars
- Performed under local anesthesia
- Improve self-esteem and confidence
