Buccal Fat Removal Boston

When we see a newborn and are cooing over the beautiful new baby, it is not uncommon to pinch and comment on the cute chubby cheeks. But, as we age, full or chubby cheeks are less likely to be seen as attractive. While high cheekbones are extolled as a virtue for runway models, fat or chubby cheeks are not. If you have chubby cheeks, one solution is removing the buccal fat.

What is buccal fat removal?

We all have fat pads in our cheeks. To reduce chubby cheeks, the buccal fat pads are removed through the mouth.

How is Buccal Fat Removal Performed?

A buccal fat removal procedure is generally performed under local anesthesia right in our office. Access to the buccal fat pads is achieved through incisions in the mouth near the second molar. Dr. Spiegel then pushes the buccal pad into the mouth where it can be removed.
