10 Buccal Fat Pad Reduction

Buccal fat pad reduction is simple procedure to slim the lower cheeks.  It is not a substitute for weight loss and works best for patients with full cheeks or round face.  The procedure can be performed with local anesthesia or IV  sedation and the recovery is usually less than a week, although the final results may not be apparent for 6 weeks after the procedure.  The result is generally subtle although some patients have very large fat deposits in the cheeks and will have a more dramatic result.
