Three Things to Consider Before Buccal Fat Removal

For those who feel their mid-face is a little too “full” or who notice they have so-called chipmunk cheeks, buccal fat removal is a simple, effective way to sculpt the cheeks and achieve a more refined and refreshed look.

Here are three things to consider before scheduling your procedure.

1. Results are Subtle but Noticeable

Similar to many other cosmetic procedures, buccal fat removal leads to subtle yet meaningful changes. In many cases, just a few milliliters of fat are removed from the buccal fat pad, which slims the lower cheeks just adjacent to the corner of the mouth. It’s very effective for subtle facial sculpting. Board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Thomas Walker aims to give cheek surgery patients a look that will continue to appear natural as they age.

2. Buccal Fat Removal Enhances Cheekbones

An obvious effect of buccal fat surgery is the enhancement of the cheekbones or the “supermodel look.”  It can give the illusion of higher cheekbones.  It is important to choose an experienced surgeon like Dr. Walker who will know just the right amount of fat to remove.

3. Expertise is Key for Long-Lasting Results

For buccal fat removal or any other cosmetic procedure, you should always have it performed by a board-certified surgeon like Dr. Walker. He has the knowledge of facial anatomy and the experience of performing buccal fat removal in Atlanta, GA, which will give you natural-looking results with the highest safety profile. His less-is-more approach to plastic surgery guarantees you won’t look “worked-on” after buccal fat removal.
