The buccal fat pads are encapsulated fat deposits located on either side of the face beneath the first layer of fat that forms the cheeks. It is these fat deposits, when too large, that create the appearance of overly-prominent nasiolabial folds (the creases that run from either side of the nose to either side of the mouth). Over developed buccal fat pads can also make one appear overweight and tired
If you have full, overly-round “chipmunk” cheeks, buccal fat extraction may be the procedure for you. This simple and relatively rapid, procedure can help you to achieve a naturally sculpted and slimmer facial appearance that will have people asking what your what your weight loss secret is.

Planning your Buccal Fat Extraction Surgery
At FACE we start by listening. During your initial consultation, Dr. Asaria or Dr. Alexander will discuss your goals in great detail. Following this, digital imaging will be performed to help analyze your facial features and facial balance. Your doctor will help you carefully plan your extraction surgery to give you the most natural and desired result. Computer imaging can also be used to demonstrate what you will look following surgery. Further potential improvements with neck liposuction, fat grafting, or a rhinoplasty can also be discussed.
Excellent communication between patient and surgeon is crucial during the planning phase. Dr. Asaria and Dr. Alexander will take great care to ensure that you feel one hundred percent comfortable with your treatment plan long before surgery begins.
