Buccal Fat Pad Excision

What is Buccal Fat Pad Excision?

Buccal fat pad excision is a surgical procedure that involves the removal of a portion of the buccal fat pads, which are located in the cheeks. The procedure is typically performed to create a more defined cheekbone or to reduce the fullness of the cheeks in patients who have a “chubby” or “baby face” appearance. The procedure is a highly effective option for slimming full cheeks and achieving a more sculpted look for the lower face.


The buccal fat pad excision typically takes about 30 minutes to an hour to complete, depending on the complexity of the case and the amount of fat to be removed.


Patients can generally return to work or school within a week after the procedure, and normal activities can be resumed within a few weeks.


The procedure can be performed under local anesthesia with or without sedation, depending on the preference of the surgeon and the patient.

Who Qualifies for Buccal Fat Pad Procedure?

Buccal fat pad excision is typically recommended for patients who have a round or chubby appearance in their cheeks and desire a more defined and sculpted facial appearance. Ideal candidates for the procedure should be in good overall health, have realistic expectations about the results of the procedure, and understand the potential risks and benefits of the surgery.

The procedure is typically performed on patients who are at least 18 years old and have fully developed facial features. Patients with a naturally round or full face, or those who have gained weight in their cheeks due to genetics, aging, or other factors, may be good candidates.
