Buccal Fat Removal Surgery Specialist in Bay Area, Los Gatos CA
Surgery to reduce facial fat in the cheek area is known as buccal fat reduction. Your face’s bone structure, particularly your cheekbones and the hollowed-out areas between your cheeks and jawline, can be made more prominent by removing this fat. Dr. Eric Li at CA Aesthetics will remove your buccal fat pads in order to get increased cheekbones and a contoured appearance. We are conveniently located at 555 Knowles Drive, Suite 218 Los Gatos, CA 95032. Contact us for more information or schedule an appointment online.
Buccal fat removal has rapidly increased in popularity over the past few years and can be an effective way to enhance the definition of your lower face. At the time of your consultation, Dr. Li will analyze your face in detail and discuss whether Buccal Fat Removal is a good option for you.
The buccal fat pad is a naturally-occuring fat pad in the cheeks. In patients with a fuller face, a portion of the fat pad can sometimes be removed to help create a slimmer appearance to the lower face. Other features may also contribute to a fuller face, such as a promiment jawline, or deficient cheek, and sometimes these features can be altered in addition to buccal fat removal.
Buccal fat removal is performed with incisions placed inside the mouth. Absorbable sutures are placed inside the mouth and dissolve on their own over time. Surgery can be performed under local anesthetic or general anesthetic.
