Buccal Lipectomy / Cheek Fat Pad Removal

Miami based plastic surgeon Dr. Mendieta performs buccal lipectomy to help patients with full, round or “chubby” cheeks achieve a more sculpted and athletic facial appearance. A buccal lipectomy is also known as cheek fat pad removal.

After a buccal lipectomy, the patient will notice that it appears as though they have lost weight and have a more chiseled face with higher appearing cheekbones. The procedure is non-invasive, scarless and heals quickly.

If you are unhappy with the round “baby” face that occurs when the buccal fat pads that you had as a child remained with you in adulthood, contact us to schedule a consultation to see if you are a good candidate for buccal fat pad extraction
