Buccal Fat Removal

Have you ever looked in the mirror and thought that your mid to lower cheek area appeared too full and made your face appear fat or too round?
Buccal fat are pads of fat located in the lower portion of the cheeks, in the area of the cheek hollows. The amount of buccal fat varies from person to person. This fat rarely is reduced with weight loss or exercise. For some, enlarged areas of buccal fat can create the look of chubby cheeks that may be out of place with the rest of your facial features. Buccal fat removal decreases fullness in the lower cheek by removing the fat pads between the muscle planes in the cheeks. As a result, this highlights the upper cheek for a more sculpted appearance.
Buccal fat removal can be performed under IV sedation anesthesia in our AAAHC-accredited in-office surgical suite, or if you prefer, under general anesthesia at an outpatient surgical center. There are no external scars, as we use an incision on the inside of each cheek to tease out and remove the buccal fat. Care is taken to remove enough fat to see an improvement, but not too much to make the cheeks too hollow. The surgery takes approximately 1.5 hours and there is very little downtime other than some swelling in the face for a few days. Most patients can return to work the next day. The cost for Buccal Fat Removal range from $4,000 to $6,000 and includes FPSA OR (operating room) and Anesthesia (IV sedation).
Buccal Fat Removal Reviews
Dr. Delaney is an absolute magician! I underwent a buccal fat removal procedure with him and I am thrilled with the results. This relatively minor procedure had significant results. Absolutely pain free, too! Dr. Delaney is an exceptional doctor, very skilled in all aspects of facial improvements. I highly recommend him for anyone considering this or any other procedure.
