The buccal fat pad resides in the center of the cheeks beneath the cheekbones. These pads can be more prominent in some patients, which results in an overfilled appearance.

The Treatment

Buccal fat pad removal is performed using local anesthesia and sedation. The procedure is quick and consists of minimal downtime. Dr. Rosenberg will determine the amount of buccal fat to remove before the surgery. Several factors are examined to determine if you’re an excellent candidate, including your health, facial structure, and issues like allergies. He’ll also answer your questions and discuss relevant details of the procedure. Once the anesthetic settles, the procedure starts with a tiny incision in the inner cheek. The buccal fat pad is revealed through pressure on the outer cheek, and the fat is removed from the pad. Usually, the entire buccal fat pad isn’t removed, only a partial amount. The incision is sutured closed after the procedure is complete.
