While some Californians desire fuller cheeks, many patients are seeking to reduce the volume in this region of the face. If you dream of a slimmer, more contoured face and want to reduce your prominent cheeks, Pasadena, CA board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Husam Elias with The Pacific Coast Center for Oral, Facial & Cosmetic Surgery can help with buccal fat removal. Also known as cheek fat reduction, this facial cosmetic treatment specifically targets the cheek area to reduce fat and tissue in the mid-face for a more sleek look. During this process, Dr. Elias carefully removes the buccal fat pad tissue, which is naturally found in the cheek hollows. He then repositions and redefines the area so that your cheekbones have a natural look with renewed, enhanced beauty. If you have chubby cheeks or cheekbones that are hidden under excess fat and tissue, call us to learn more.

If you are self-conscious or unhappy with your mid-face and feel as though you have chubby cheeks, rest assured that we can help. Buccal fat removal is a popular treatment among patients who have lived with chubby cheeks and want a simple solution to have their faces appear sharper and more contoured.

During your consultation at The Pacific Coast Center for Oral, Facial & Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Elias will examine your cheeks and discuss the removal of the buccal fat tissue. He will create a custom approach for treatment. During the surgery, anesthesia is given and a small incision is made on the inside of the mouth, as well as on the inside of your cheek. The buccal fat pad will be removed, and then the incisions will be closed with sutures. Many times, the cheekbones may need to be slightly repositioned. This can be accomplished with sutures.

Following buccal fat removal surgery, patients will experience some bruising, swelling, and minor discomfort as the facial structure adheres to its new size. The overall recovery period is generally quite short. The great news is that immediately following this treatment, even with some swelling, the results can be seen immediately. Once the swelling is gone and the cheeks adjust to their new position, optimal results can be revealed, leaving patients with slimmer, more contoured, and well-defined cheeks.

I was recommend by a friend who got her breast and BBL done by Dr. Elias and I’m so glad I found him! Dr. Elias did such an amazing job with my lip fillers giving me natural results I wanted. I was debating getting them done for over a year because it was hard to find a trusting doctor and a great price. From the moment I walked through the door the staff was very kind and did not feel pressure at all to make any decisions. They took their time explaining to me my different options and made sure all my questions were answered. But not only is he the best cosmetic surgeon, he’s an oral surgeon as well which is perfect because my wisdom teeth need to be removed! We all want the natural results and if your looking for a Doctor who can do that for you, look no further Dr. Elias is the one!

My first procedure was Facetite with Dr. Elias. I was able to do the procedure awake on a Friday & was back to work on Monday! I was still swollen but not in pain at all. It’s a minimum invasive procedure to tighten the skin & gets rid of the fat. The staff was really friendly and was able to answer all my questions. I’ve been back many more times for Botox & fillers. Dr. Elias is such a perfectionist and that is exactly what I’m looking for in a Cosmetic Surgeon!
