Buccal Fat Pad Reduction - Salameh Plastic Surgery

A structured and contoured face is often associated with beauty. High cheekbones and a defining jawline is a look that both men and women desire. However, individuals that have enlarged, or excess cheek fat, can appear overweight, even when they are not. This can cause the appearance of chubby cheeks, or a disproportionate size compared to the rest of the body. This can be caused by larger buccal fat pads. Buccal fat pads are located inside of the cheeks between the nostril and corner of the mouth. If you are someone who is unsatisfied by the appearance of your chubby cheeks, there is an innovative solution that may benefit you. With a Buccal Fat Pad Reduction, you can achieve the contoured and structured look you desire.

What Our Patients Say


This advanced procedure is designed to reduce the size, or even remove, the buccal fat pad in order to achieve a more contoured facial shape. This treatment is a personalized solution that is tailored to each patient and their aesthetic goals. Fat pad reduction is an option for individuals with excess cheek fat, and not for those with a thinner facial structure. You can claim the defined facial structure you desire with this innovative treatment option.


A consultation with one of our professionals must be performed to access your goals and buccal pad condition. This procedure is performed in our fully accredited AAAASF certified surgical facility to ensure your comfort. During the procedure, a tiny incision is made on the inside of the mouth and inner cheek for minimized visibility. The buccal fat pad is then reduced using a specialized technique. The incisions can then be gently closed. Following the procedure, there is some downtime, and there will most likely be swelling that should subside rather quickly. The results can be immediately visible that result in a slimmer and more contoured face and cheek hollow. This advanced solution is a reliable remedy for achieving a defined and contoured facial structure.


If you are someone who feels that your cheeks are too large, or even chubby, you could qualify as a candidate. If you are wanting to achieve a defined facial structure, you could also qualify. However, the sure way to determine if you are a proper candidate is through a consultation.
