Buccal fat pad reduction is a treatment If you are struggling with chubby cheeks that don’t seem to budge nor matter what you do. By removing this fat pocket we can give you a sharper and more elegant look.
Buccal fat pad reduction is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that targets the Buccal Fat Pad. This is an area found deep in the cheeks on both sides of the face. Upon removal of the buccal fat, the face looks leaner and more contoured leading to a more defined lower face.

Who is a Good Candidate for Buccal Fat Pad Reduction?
This is a procedure suitable for patients of all ages, concerned about the shape and appearance of the lower half of their face due to excess fat. It is an ideal treatment for patients who have facial fat that is resistant to dieting and exercise. Having larger cheeks is not always proportional to the weight of the patient since even slim patients can have chubby cheeks.
If you already have prominent cheekbones and only wish to rejuvenate the overall appearance of your face, it’s critical that you have realistic expectations for the outcome of cheek reduction surgery. At the time of your consultation at Signature Clinic, your surgeon will work with you to determine whether you are a good candidate for this procedure.
How is Buccal Fat Removal Surgery Done?
Buccal fat removal surgery is performed under local anaesthesia. On average, the procedure takes one hour. The small incision for the procedure is done inside the mouth, thus leaving no visible scars. Then the fatty deposits are gently removed through the incision.
It is important to note that the fat pads in the cheeks cannot be removed using the various liposuction methods due to their location. Patients complaining about fatty deposits mainly in their jawline may benefit more from liposuction in that area.

Buccal Fat Removal Recovery
Recovery time for this procedure is very short. Most patients like to have their procedure on a Friday in order to be ready for work on Monday. We highly recommend our patients make arrangements for someone to drive them home after their procedure since even after local anaesthesia, it’s best not to drive after the buccal fat removal.
Bruising and swelling can be expected and can be controlled by some ice compression. Therefore, it may take up to 3 weeks to see the final results.
The majority of the swelling goes down within the first few days of recovery. Any pain or discomfort you may experience can be alleviated with ice or paracetamol.

Following a buccal fat removal, you will have a sharper and more contoured appearance. Traditional facial liposuction cannot give the same results since this area cannot be treated with liposuction. Patients who suffer from resistant facial fat that doesn’t shift with diet and exercise are the ones that benefit the most from buccal fat removal.
