Buccal Fat Removal in Dubai

When we hear body fat, we usually think of the fat stored in the abdomen or legs. But the truth is, some portion of the fat also gathers in the face. When this cheek fat gets too much, it could affect the face shape. To solve this, many surgical and non-surgical cheek fat reduction options have been developed.

With face fat removal, your facial bones, especially the cheekbones and jawline, become more visible. Therefore, the procedure is popular among those who want a contoured face. At our buccal fat removal Dubai clinic, we specialize in face fat and buccal fat removal procedures. So if you want to know everything about these methods, keep on reading this post.


What’s Buccal Fat removal?

Face fat removal involves methods that are used to reduce the extra fat in different parts of the face. While this fat could also gather in areas such as the jawline, chin, and neck, it’s the cheeks that usually get the most attention.

What is buccal fat removal?

Cheek fat removal is one of the popular surgical methods that is used for removing excess fat from the cheek fat pads. For those of you who ask where is buccal fat located, these pads are located in the lower cheek area. The removal procedure is done on these areas to make the face look more defined and sculpted. The procedure is also known by names such as cheek reduction and buccal lipectomy, and it can create a V-shaped face, which is very popular these days.

Remember that buccal fat removal is different from Cheek Liposuction. In the latter, a suction device is used to remove the fat from the cheeks. In buccal fat pad extraction, on the other hand, we remove the fat pad that is located below the cheekbone by using minimally invasive surgery.  You can read more about cheek liposuction here.


How Is Face Fat Removal Done?

A lot of people are curious about how cheek fat pad removal is performed. In this procedure, a plastic surgeon makes a small incision inside the mouth. This is done to remove the fat pads from the face. The patients are usually under local anesthesia for this treatment. Something that you usually go through at the dentist’s office as well.

The incision is closed and covered after removing the fat pads. The minimally invasive procedure often takes about 30 minutes and makes your face look slimmer. Also, it can be done alongside other cosmetic surgeries such as:

  • Facelift
  • Rhinoplasty
  • Chin implants
  • Lip augmentation
  • Botox injection
