Buccal fat removal surgery is usually done under local anesthesia; the procedure is painless and you will be awake during the procedure.
The fat removal
The Doctor makes an incision inside your cheek (intraoraly) and places pressure on the outside to expose the Buccal fat pad.The surgeon then cuts and removes the unwanted amount of fat from the exposed location.
Closing the incision
The incision is closed with dissolvable stitches after the procedure is complete.
