Buccal Fat Pad Removal
Heavier cheeks in women can detract from the natural beauty of the face. Genetics, weight gain, and other factors can contribute to chubby cheeks in women, impacting the contours of the face. A discreet cosmetic procedure for women called buccal fat removal can reduce and slim the lower cheeks to improve the definition of the female face. Dr. John Anastasatos at Los Angeles Plastic Surgery offers buccal fat pad removal to slim and define the face for his patients.
The buccal fad pads are located in the lower cheeks. When pronounced, the face can look wider and heavier, detracting from the cheekbones and angular structure of the face. Removing or reducing the buccal fat pads can have a dramatic cosmetic impact on the female face. Benefits for patients include:
- Reduce chubby or “chipmunk” cheeks
- A more feminine contour to the midface
- A more youthful appearance
- Improved definition of the cheekbones
- A slimmer, more attractive facial appearance
- More self-confidence in social and professional interactions
Some women never grow out of their childhood cheeks, while others may gain weight and their cheeks plump with age. Whatever the case, cheek reduction can define the midface and bone structure for an improved, slimmer cosmetic appearance.
Cheek Reduction Surgery
A buccal fat pad resection for women can be achieved without exterior incisions or scars. The procedure can be completed with an incision inside the mouth to access the cheek tissue. Patients can experience some swelling and bruising, which dissipates over time, revealing a more sculpted, defined face from the procedure.
If you desire a slimmer, more angular face, buccal fat pad removal may be right for you. To learn more about cheek reduction, contact us at Los Angeles Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills.
