What is buccal fat reduction surgery like?
A buccal fat reduction is a procedure performed in the office that takes less than an hour. Incisions are made through the inside of the mouth so no scars are visible. The sutures used to close the small incision will naturally and quickly dissolve. Buccal fat pad removal can be done as a facial contouring procedure or in combination with non-surgical facial contouring. We have surgeons who are experts in facial contouring both non-surgical and surgical.
