Buccal Fat Removal For Men

What Is Buccal Fat Removal?

Buccal Fat Removal is a minimally invasive surgery that eliminates excess buccal fat (fat pads) in the cheeks. This procedure is ideal for men with round faces who lack definition or want to slim the area permanently. By removing excess buccal fat, patients experience a less whole appearance in the lower portion of the face. This procedure aims to enhance the prominence of the jawline and cheekbones and create more defined facial contours.

How is it Performed?

The entire procedure is performed inside the mouth and only takes 30 to 60 minutes. First, local anesthesia is administered to numb the area. A small incision is made, and board-certified surgeon Dr. Steinbrech gently removes the buccal fat pads. Once removed, the incisions are sutured closed with dissolvable stitches. For men, other cosmetic facial procedures can be done simultaneously, such as Buccal Fat Removal.

Who Is A Good Candidate For Buccal Fat Removal?

It is not recommended for men with a thin or narrow face, as it can lead to a worn appearance with age. This procedure best suits men with excessive fullness in the lower cheek area, a round face, chubby cheeks, or “chipmunk cheeks.” During the initial consultation, Dr. Steinbrech will determine if buccal fat removal is proper for you.

The best age to undergo the surgery can vary according to the patient. Typically, this procedure is not recommended to men whose faces have not fully developed.  A fully developed face helps Dr. Steinbrech determine the right amount of fat to remove. Overall, this surgery is designed to achieve a more sculpted facial appearance.
