Buccal Fat Removal Newport Beach

Buccal Fat RemovalBuccal fat removal can help to enhance the natural contours of your face give it a more sculpted appearance while still appearing naturally beautiful. It is a way to contour your face if you think your cheeks are too round or chubby even after weight loss. A healthy amount of facial fat is important to retain a youthful appearance, but excess buccal fat can lead to a rounded moon face or chipmunk-like cheek appearance that hides one’s naturally given cheekbone and jaw line.

A buccal fat removal procedure conservatively discards non-essential fat in the cheek area, resulting in a thinner looking and more chiseled appearance. This procedure can be done in the office under local anesthesia and the incision hidden inside the mouth to avoid any external scars.

Buccal fat removal can be combined with other facial rejuvenation procedures such as eyelid surgery, rhinoplasty, fillers, or Botox to give an overall slimmer and more defined appearance for patients. Please contact us to find out more information or to schedule a consultation with Dr. Chen to customize a treatment plan based on your aesthetic goals!
