What is buccal fat pad removal?

The buccal fat pads are located in the lower part of the cheeks, contributing to a fuller or rounder facial appearance. Buccal fat pad removal involves carefully extracting r a portion of these fat pads to create a more sculpted facial definition. This procedure can significantly impact the overall aesthetics of the face, providing a subtle yet noticeable enhancement.

The procedure: Precision and artistry combined

Performed with local anesthesia, buccal fat pad removal requires extreme precision. A small incision is made on the inside of the cheek, through which a portion of the buccal fat pad is gently removed. The incision is then closed with dissolvable sutures, leaving no visible scars.

A comprehensive consultation with Dr. Davidson is crucial to determine if this procedure aligns with your aesthetic goals and expectations.
