structured and contoured face of a woman

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 cheeks that look chubby or disproportionate compared to the rest of the body, and distract from your natural beauty.

This can be caused by larger buccal fat pads. Buccal fat is located inside of the cheeks between the nostril and corner of the mouth. If you are unsatisfied with the appearance of your cheeks, there is a simple solution that may benefit you. With a Buccal Fat Pad Removal, you can achieve the contoured and structured look you desire.

This simple procedure is designed to reduce the size, or even remove, the buccal fat pad to achieve a more contoured facial shape. This treatment is a personalized solution that is tailored to each patient and their aesthetic goals.

A consultation with one of our professionals must be performed to assess your goals and buccal fat 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. Finally, the incisions can be gently closed.

Following the Buccal Fat Pad Removal, 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. The buccal fat reduction is a reliable remedy for achieving a defined and contoured facial structure.


If you are someone who feels that your cheeks are too prominent, 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 for a buccal fat reduction is through a consultation. If you are interested in learning more about this effective treatment option, reach out to us here at Salameh Plastic Surgery. Contact us today and schedule your consultation!
