Buccal Fat Removal in Dallas 

If you’ve tried everything to contour your face and are still left with that round facial aesthetic and stubborn fat pad under your cheeks, a buccal fat removal procedure may be right for you. Board-certified facial cosmetic surgeon Dr. Randy can eliminate that rounder, softer look and give you a more defined midface by simply removing the buccal fat.

What is Buccal Fat Removal? 

The buccal fat is located deep within the cheeks in a thin layer of connective tissue. Its purpose is to assist with muscle contraction and protect deeper facial structures, ultimately giving the face a soft and full appearance. However, some individuals have excessive buccal fat, leading to what is sometimes referred to as a “chipmunk” look. Patients may be predisposed to excess buccal fat due to genetics or lifestyle. In these cases, buccal fat removal can be used to create a more contoured and slim facial profile. It is important to note that buccal fat removal is a unique procedure when compared to other fat removal surgeries, as it addresses the deeper fat deposits. 

How is Buccal Fat Removal Performed? 

The buccal fat removal procedure is performed by Dr. Randy Sanovich, a board-certified facial cosmetic  surgeon in Dallas, Texas. He will remove excess fatty tissue from the cheeks through small incisions inside the mouth. The procedure can be performed under anesthesia on an outpatient basis with a quick recovery. 

Before the procedure, it is important to discuss your aesthetic goals with Dr. Sanovich. During your consultation, he will examine you and discuss the best way to achieve your desired results. He will also explain the risks and potential complications associated with the procedure and answer any questions that you may have. It is important to follow all pre-operative instructions provided by Dr. Sanovich. This may include avoiding certain medications and supplements, quitting smoking, and avoiding alcohol for a period of time before the procedure.

After the procedure, you may experience some swelling, bruising, and soreness. It is important to follow Dr. Sanovich's post-operative instructions to ensure the best outcome. For most patients, the swelling and bruising will subside within a few days and the final results will be visible in a few weeks.
