Dr. Singh is a wonderful plastic surgeon. He has an eye for detail and precision. What I love is that he really takes the time to see how he can help you and be realistic and honest with what can be achieved. He checked in on me constantly and was always there for me if I had any questions or concerns pre and post op. I had a very lovely experience and felt like a VIP with him. My results are fantastic and I will definitely undergo a procedure again with Dr. Singh 🙂 ~ Google
Buccal fat removal surgery with our top of the line plastic surgeon at the Facial Plastic Surgery Group of NYC aims to minimize a person’s overall facial width by removing extra buccal fat, which is located in the cheeks. The buccal fat pad, a spherical mass of fat situated beneath the cheekbones and fixed between the facial muscles and the middle of the cheek, is the area that your top rated buccal fat removal specialist plastic surgeon focuses on. Everyone possesses buccal fat pads, although each person’s size and shape are unique. A person with larger buccal fat pads may have a face that is more round or full, whereas a person with smaller buccal fat pads may have a face that is more ‘V’ shaped.
Buccal fat removal differs from other cosmetic facial procedures in that it leaves no visible facial scars because the incisions are placed inside the mouth rather than on the outside of the body. It frequently takes place concurrently with other cosmetic facial operations. A deep plane facelift, neck lift, and blepharoplasty are some of the most popular cosmetic facial procedures performed alongside buccal fat removal surgery.
Benefits of Buccal Fat Removal Surgery
- Improved facial shape: By removing excess fat, the patient’s facial shape appears more defined and contoured.
- Enhanced self-confidence: Some patients may experience an increase in self-confidence, as their facial features now more closely align with their desired aesthetic.
- Cleared airway passage: In some circumstances, removing the extra fat from the cheek region clears the airways and can help people with sleep apnea or other breathing problems
- Long-lasting effects: Since the excised buccal fat cells typically do not regrow, the effects of buccal fat removal surgery are typically long-lasting.
During your initial buccal fat removal consultation, you will have the opportunity to chat privately with the plastic surgeon and discuss your desired post-operative goals. The expert plastic surgeon will thoroughly describe the procedure and address any questions you may have about the process.
