What is a Buccal Fat Reduction?
Buccal Fat Reduction, otherwise referred to as cheek reduction or buccal lipectomy, is a cosmetic procedure designed to sculpt and refine the facial contours by selectively removing excess fat from the cheeks. This fat resides within the buccal fat pads, which are pockets of fat located in the lower part of the cheeks. By reducing the volume of these fat pads, the procedure enhances facial definition and creates a more harmonious appearance.
What are the benefits?
Buccal Fat Reduction offers a range of advantages that make it an appealing option for those seeking facial refinement:
- Enhanced Facial Contours: The procedure precisely targets the cheeks, providing a more sculpted and balanced appearance to the face.
- Natural-Looking Results: By reducing fat from the buccal fat pads, the procedure creates natural-looking outcomes that blend seamlessly with your facial features.
- Minimally Invasive: Buccal Fat Reduction requires only small incisions inside the mouth, eliminating the need for external scarring and allowing for a quicker recovery.
- Improved Self-Confidence: Enhancing facial harmony and proportions often leads to increased self-esteem and confidence.
Who is a candidate?
Ideal candidates for Buccal Fat Reduction are individuals who:
- Are in good overall health
- Have realistic expectations regarding the procedure's outcomes
- Desire facial contouring or refinement
- Are troubled by excessive cheek fullness or lack of facial definition
- Seek a minimally invasive option
- Are non-smokers or willing to quit smoking leading up to and following the procedure, as smoking can hinder healing
During a comprehensive consultation, Dr. DeBusk will assess your facial anatomy and goals to determine your candidacy for this procedure and create a customized treatment plan.
