Dr. Ramirez Gavidia | Buccal Fat Removal/Extraction Nashville

If you are bothered by chubby cheeks, due to genetics or weight gain, buccal fat pad surgery could be right for you. This procedure is also known as: buccal fat pad removal, cheek reduction, buccal lipectomy, or bichectomy. The purpose of this procedure is to reduce excess fat from the cheeks; creating a more refined facial contour.

Dr. Ramirez Gavidia most commonly performs what he calls the “RG Triple Threat;” a combination of buccal fat removal/or extraction, Neck/Chin VASER Liposuction, and strategic volume replacement (Facial Fillers). This integrative strategy helps resculpt the face to ideal contours. Dr. Ramirez Gavidia’s goal is to improve your proportions and balance to create harmonious aesthetic transitions of the upper face, mid-face, and lower face. This rejuvenating effect often starts by addressing the visual impact of the buccal fat pads.

DR. RAMIREZ GAVIDIA’S APPROACH: A Surgeon With An Artistic Eye

Dr. Ramriez Gavidia will perform this surgery using local anesthesia. He makes two incisions on the inside of cheeks, he will apply pressure to the cheeks so that he can extract the fat pads and then close up the incision with sutures. Dr. Ramirez Gavidia will go over recovery instructions in order to minimize discomfort. We like to compare this procedure to be as simple as a dental procedure.

The custom treatment plan for each patient begins with an extensive face and neck evaluation and surgical consultation appointment to establish realistic goals. Dr. Ramirez Gavidia will educate you on his Signature combination treatment plan (“RG Triple Threat“):

RG Triple Threat

  • First, he conducts the Buccal Fat Pad Removal/Extraction Surgery and VASER Chin Liposuction in one procedure.
  • He then follows up with a Dermal Filler; further contouring the face, improving structure and definition in the jawline, and creating an elegant-natural-youthful-looking V-shaped face everyone desires.

His multi-dimensional approach to facial surgery helps him create an overall more balanced, proportioned, and streamlined facial appearance in his patients.

The following are other popular pairings with buccal fat removal: 

  • Liposuction and Fillers: Liposuction contours the jawline, and removes stubborn fat under the chin. Cheek filler lifts the cheekbones. Combined with Buccal Fat Pad, the three procedures reshape the face for an elegant ogee curve.
  • Renuvion J-Plasma: Addresses mild to moderate skin laxity in the neck in combination with liposuction to the lower face and chin to further improve results. Renuvion J-Plasma is our preferred add on with RG Buccal Fat Pad Removal + Chin Liposuction.
  • Facelift: Rejuvenates the facial appearance and resculpt the face with buccal fat pad surgery.
  • Blepharoplasty: Simultaneous attention to upper or lower eyelids will lift drooping eyelids or erase under-eye bags.
  • Mid-Facelift: Address visible signs of aging in the lower eyelids and cheeks; complementing buccal fat removal.
  • Neck Lift: Paired with buccal fat surgery will address the lower portion of the face; including the jowls and neck.
  • Chin Augmentation (Mentoplasty): Creates a more balanced appearance. With buccal fat surgery, the result is a more proportional face.
