Buccal fat removal has gained popularity thanks to its subtle, natural-looking results. When performed by an experienced surgeon like Dr. Glynn Bolitho, the outcome can enhance facial features and increase self-confidence.
About the Buccal Fat Removal Process
Buccal fat removal, also known as buccal fat pad removal, is a cosmetic procedure that reduces the prominence of the cheeks by removing excess fat in the lower cheek area. It aims to make the cheeks appear less full or chubby, accentuate the cheekbones, and provide a more defined facial structure.
The procedure starts with the administration of local anesthesia to numb the treatment area. A small incision is made inside the mouth, specifically in the buccal mucosa, which is the inner cheek lining. The Dr. Bolitho carefully removes the buccal fat pad and then closes the incision with sutures. This approach ensures no visible scarring on the face.
