ALL ABOUT BUCCAL FAT REMOVAL FOR THINNER CHEEKS
Aesthetic Medicine Dubai | 6 November 2023
To alter the look of the face and lower cheek size, buccal fat can be surgically removed. The buccal pad is located deep within the cheek fat. It is located between two face muscles, below the cheekbone.
The size of this fat pad affects the shape of the face. They exist in all people, however they differ greatly in size. Through surgery, the size of this pad can be reduced. It will reduce roundness or fat in the cheeks, giving the face a more angular shape.
If you have dense buccal fat pads, your face will seem bigger or rounder. Sometimes others will refer to it as a “baby face.” There is nothing wrong with having larger buccal fat pads in the face, but if you wish them to seem smaller, Dr. Matteo Vigo is skilled at executing this fat removal surgery. Buccal fat reduction reduces facial fat, especially in the cheek hollows, with the goal of thinning the cheek region. Even while having a flexible, smooth face is often associated with youth, some people believe that their faces are too broad or large.
The pads on each patient’s faces might be different sizes overall and on either side. Patients who have this kind of cosmetic surgery frequently do not have narrow or long faces. Therefore, they would appear older and more worn-down. Instead, the cheekbones are meant to be highlighted. Larger cheeks are perfectly fine, however many patients prefer prominent cheekbones. This technique may improve patients’ appearance due to a more defined face shape. The best part is that there are no noticeable scars left behind because all incisions are made inside the patient’s lips. Furthermore, it doesn’t take very long; often, it only takes a little bit longer than an hour.
