Quick and Easy Buccal Fat Reduction to Slim the face: Two Approaches


Buccal fat pads are normal fat deposits in the cheeks.  Some patients develop large buccal fat pads which produces unwanted fullness of the cheek or jowl.  Reduction of the buccal fat pads is an easy procedure usually done through the inside of the mouth that takes only minutes and has a short recovery.  Patients undergoing facelift surgery may also have their buccal fat pads reduced for rejuvenation.

In this video Dr. Niamtu demonstrates both approaches to the buccal fat pads.  For before and after images of buccal fat pad reduction click here.
