Buccal Fat Removal

The rounded mass of fat in the middle of your cheek is called the Buccal fat. It gives your face a fuller and rounder look, giving the impression of a “baby face”. The Buccal fat removal surgery works to reduce and remove this fat to give a hollow and more prominent look to the cheekbones.

What’s the Procedure for a Buccal Fat Removal?

A fat removal process is swift and painless. The procedure is classified in these broad steps:


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.

Should I Get a Buccal Fat Removal?

If the amount of Buccal fat on your face bothers you and you wish to have it removed, a Buccal fat surgery is exactly what you need! However, the surgery is not recommended if you have a narrow face, as it may cause sunken cheeks as you age.

Recovery & Results

You will be asked to use a recommended mouthwash to prevent any chances of infection, and you may need to shift to a liquid diet or a softer diet for a few days after the surgery. Since this is a surgical procedure, you may experience some post-op swelling and bruising.
