Buccal fat can give the face a more round, full, cheeky appearance. Buccal fat pad removal sculpts a more defined facial contour.
Candidates for Buccal Fat Reduction
Candidates for buccal fat removal have chubby or excessively puffy cheeks that give a "chipmunk" or childlike appearance to an adult face. This pocket of fat often resists at-home methods like diet and exercise, making surgical intervention the most viable route to change the facial shape.
Dr. Palladino will meet with you for a consultation to evaluate your face and determine whether buccal fat reduction surgery can help you accomplish your aesthetic goals. Together you will establish mutual expectations for the procedure's results and devise a plan to produce the desired facial contour.
