Buccal fat is a collection of fat cells located deep within the facial tissues, next to some of the facial muscles in the cheeks. This type of fat is present at birth, and with facial growth, it becomes less noticeable in many people. When people retain the excess fat, however, it can create a chubby facial appearance.
Regular diet and exercise may help remove buccal fat, but when it doesn’t, a buccal fat removal treatment may work. After undergoing the procedure, your face will appear more defined and slim. It will make you look more mature and can even boost your confidence. In addition to the aesthetic benefits, this procedure does not require external incisions, meaning there will be no visible post-surgical marks.
If you’re tired of having chubby cheeks that give you a baby face, this procedure may be the perfect solution for you. To learn more about it, contact our office to schedule a consultation with Dr. Stephen Fink, a board-certified facial plastic surgeon.
