What is a Buccal fat pad extraction?

Buccal fat extraction surgery removes excess fat from the cheeks to produce a more contoured and refined appearance. If you purse your lips to whistle or when you see someone "suck" on a cigarette you will notice a chiseled, more hollow look. It is also a procedure that is often sought to remedy chipmunk cheeks. You may have heard it called cheek reduction surgery, as well.

t is best to take a careful look at your genetics. Did your parents have overly plump faces when they were young? Did this plumpness persist once they reached their 30's and 40's? If so, you may have inherited their excessively full faces. This is the doctor's own technique and takes literally 5-8 minutes to complete on both sides.
