buccal fat pad removal


You can best describe buccal fat pad removal as a permanent cheek contour. It addresses fullness under the zygomatic region, blotting out its appearance. When the cheek fat is removed the bony structure of the malars will be more defined.

Buccal fat pad removal or bichatectomy is a small intervention that can be easily performed under local anesthesia. A small 1 cm incision is made on the inside of the cheek near the upper jaw so no external scars are visible. Cheek fat is removed depending on the necessary volume. The result will get more and more defined over a time lapse of about 6 months.
