What is Buccal Fat Removal?

This procedure seeks to give the face a more angular and chiseled look by reducing the size of the buccal fat pad normally located in the cheeks. The buccal fat pad, not unlike the appendix or tonsils, has no useful function after infancy. This surgery is recommended primarily for patients with decidedly round, full cheeks and is commonly performed in combination with cheek enhancement.

How is Buccal Fat Removal Performed?

Buccal fat pad reduction is performed through a small incision inside the cheeks that leaves no visible scar. Dr. Fodor does not recommend total removal because this could lead to a “sunken in” or gaunt appearance. Postoperative swelling and bruising are practically nonexistent. Buccal fat pad reduction results in a more refined, sculpted cheek contour.

How Much Does Buccal Fat Removal Cost?

The cost for a buccal fat removal will vary depending on the severity of your case and techniques used for surgery. At your consultation, Dr. Fodor will be happy to discuss your options and cost based on your needs.
