In our formative years, the fat deposits that give us those adorable round baby cheeks usually diminish, yielding to a more sculpted and defined adult face. When these fat deposits, known as buccal fat pads, fail to recede on their own they can be reduced through a process known as buccal fat extraction, or buccal fat removal.

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, our buccal fat removal in Toronto 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.

About buccal fat removal

The buccal fat extraction procedure is often used in facial contouring and can be performed independently or in conjunction with other face enhancing procedures.

Best of all the procedure is minimally invasive, leaves no scar and heals rapidly with little pain.

If you are interested in buccal fat extraction, Dr. Asaria or Dr. Alexander will assist you to determine whether it is right for you.

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.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

Dear Patients:

At FACE Toronto we are committed to protecting the safety of our patients, staff, and the general public while maintaining our high standard of quality care. As a result of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we have made changes to our patient care practices in accordance with all provincial and Public Health recommendations. Our team has been working diligently on enhancing our safety protocols to protect the well-being of our patients, team members, and families. We would like to highlight how we are providing a safe environment for you and our team:

  • We will be pre-screening all patients that are scheduled to come into our office for any symptoms of COVID-19. We will ask patients to stay home with symptoms of COVD-19, chronic lung disease, severe asthma, serious heart conditions, and uncontrolled type 1 diabetes. A mandatory Covid-19 consent form must be filled out before arrival to the clinic and temperature checks will be administered upon entering the building.
  • We have implemented a policy for the safety and testing of our staff members including daily screening and temperature checks. We will be maintaining physical distancing as much as possible throughout the office for staff and patients.
  • The timing of patient visits has been adjusted in order to limit the number of people in the office at a given time and to allow for enhanced disinfecting and cleaning protocols we have put in place in between patients.
  • We request that patients come on their own to all appointments unless absolutely necessary. We are not servicing any walk-in patients and not allowing visitors or children to accompany any patient.
  • For your safety all of our staff will be wearing masks when interacting with patients in the office and routine hand-washing is required.
  • We request that you wear a mask. If you do not have a mask, a mask will be provided. Hand sanitation stations will be available upon entering and throughout the office.
  • We are pleased to offer virtual visits as an option for non-urgent appointments. The software we have in place provides appropriate safety and privacy for the interaction.
  • We have increased our in-office cleaning. All areas of patient traffic are regularly cleaned throughout the day. All treatment rooms are cleaned between every patient encounter. All chairs and table tops in the waiting room as well as treatment rooms will be wiped down between patients, including counters, keyboards and door handles. Our credit/debit card terminal will be disinfected after each use. We have also enhanced the air filtration quality in our space to provide patients with surgically clean air.

We are so excited to welcome you back and look forward to continuing to help our patients look and feel their best! We encourage you to reach out to our office now to schedule your appointment. Please feel free to contact our team by phone at 416-479-4244 or email at info@facetoronto.com.
