Buccal Fat Removal in Fredericksburg, VA

What Is Buccal Fat Removal?

Although having chubby cheeks as a child is endearing, for adults, this fullness can interfere with confidence. Excess fat in the mid-face often cannot be addressed with diet and exercise, which is why Fredericksburg, VA plastic surgeons Dr. Howard Heppe, Dr. Harold Bautista, and Dr. Pejman Aflaki proudly offer buccal fat removal to help patients remove the extra fat and get a slimmer shape. To learn about the benefits of buccal fat removal and see if it suits your aesthetic goals, contact our office to schedule an initial consultation.

How Does Buccal Fat Removal Work?

A personalized treatment plan will be created based on the amount of fat and tissue that you have under and around the cheekbones. Buccal fat removal takes around an hour to complete, and you will be given local anesthesia to keep you comfortable. A small incision is created on the inside of the mouth, and either a portion or the entire buccal fat pad will be removed. Your incisions will then be carefully closed with sutures. In some cases, your cheekbones may need to be repositioned to enhance your outcome.

What are the Benefits of Buccal Fat Removal?

Buccal fat removal can have a significant impact on your appearance and self-esteem. This procedure provides Fredericksburg, VA patients a variety of benefits that result in a slimmer, more youthful appearance. Some of these benefits include:

  • Enhances your profile and jawline
  • Helps match your face to your body
  • Boosts confidence
  • Eliminates excess fat in the face

Five Stars are Not enough for Dr. Aflaki. I did revision rhinoplasty and I cannot thank him enough for such an amazing job he has done. The best decision I made. He is simply the best, number one plastic surgeon.

I had a breast augmentation with Dr. Bautista and I am so happy that I chose him. I came into the office because one breast was larger than the other. Dr. Bautista examined me and told me what he was able to do which was stitch up the larger breast so gravity wouldn't pull it down so hard after surgery. Nearly 3 months later they are sitting evenly and I'm so happy. The nurses were great as well. I had other medical doctors and they ensured I got a doctor's note to approve the surgery as well as making sure they honor my latex allergy. Everyone was so nice and the process was just so welcoming and amazing. Highly recommend!

The results have been life changing - Dr. Bautista performed my tummy tuck 4 months ago, and I couldn’t be happier with the results. The entire process was significantly easier than I expected, from my first consult to my final post-op appointments. Any questions or concerns that I had during the process were addressed promptly, and the results have been life-changing.
