Whether your “chubby cheeks” are due to being overweight or even a genetic predisposition, Buccal Fat Removal or cheek reduction surgery can address this issue by removing these fat pads to slim down the face for a more chiseled appearance.
What it targets:
Unwanted fat on the cheeks, also known as buccal fat
This surgery is done on an outpatient basis under light sleep sedation. Post-surgery, your lower face and mouth will be sore and tender, with the swelling expected to last for about two weeks. Antibiotics and antiseptic mouthwash are usually prescribed afterwards and patients are advised to go on a soft diet for a few days for faster healing time.
