Do you ever wonder how celebrities always seem to have the sharpest of cheekbones and jawlines? As you may have guessed, it isn’t just superior makeup contouring skills giving them that amazing look!
Perhaps you would prefer people to focus on your eyes and your cheekbones instead of your cheeks? Buccal fat removal at RG Plastic Surgery is a simple and effective way of reducing lower facial fullness, resulting in a more sculpted facial contour.
The procedure can be transformative.
The facial shape is changed from a round or square appearance to a more chiseled and desired “V” or “heart” shape.
What is buccal fat removal and is it what I have been looking for all this time?
A buccal fat procedure removes the buccal fat pad, a naturally-occurring pad of fat below the cheekbone. Buccal fat pads are stored near the corners of your mouth above the jawline. The size of the buccal fat pad varies with each individual patient, and the buccal fat pad in each cheek may be different sizes. Buccal fat pad extraction surgery is designed for people who find that their face feels too full, even chubby. These fat pockets can be removed to give your face a leaner, more contoured shape. While a face that is naturally soft and filled out is considered youthful, buccal fat pad removal can accentuate cheekbones like nothing else.
What does the procedure actually involve?
While the surgery is simple with little downtime, it is not an area for imprecise technique. The fat is accessed by making small incisions on the inside of the cheek. Dr. Ramirez Gavidia then locates the buccal extension of the fat pad that bulges into the mouth. The amount of fat removed is determined with a keen eye for aesthetics. After the fat is removed, the small incisions are closed with dissolving sutures.
Bring your facial contours into sharp focus.
If you’re unhappy with the roundness of your face and want to enhance your appearance, Dr. Ramirez Gavidia may recommend buccal fat removal. Patients who receive buccal fat removal enjoy more defined cheeks, improved facial contour, and a rejuvenated facial shape. Subtle changes can have a significant impact on your overall look. At RG Plastic Surgery, helping you achieve your aesthetic goal is our goal.
