What is Buccal Fat Removal?

Buccal fat removal or reduction is an elective and cosmetic procedure available at Renue Aesthetic Surgery of Overland Park, KS, that involves the removal of excess fullness from within the cheeks. Once extracted, the buccal fat pad is gone for good. It won’t grow back, meaning the results are permanent.

Reasons To Consider Buccal Fat Removal

Buccal fat removal is used to treat unwanted fullness beneath the cheeks. Removing the buccal fat pad can draw more attention to your cheekbones, enhance your natural bone structure, and give your face a slimmer look overall. This procedure can also help improve symmetry between the two sides of the face for a more balanced appearance. It involves minimal downtime and is not as invasive as some other facial plastic surgeries. Of course, you should still expect some manageable swelling and bruising.

Our practice is run by a  nationally and internationally trained, board-certified plastic surgeon who provides treatments many other offices do not have the skill or experience to offer, including the Brazilian Butt Lift.
