Cheek Reduction Surgery
Sometimes even the most stringent weight-loss and exercise regimen needs a little help. If, after working hard to finally get the body you want, your cheeks are now far too puffy or full to fit with the rest of your look, you may benefit from cheek reduction surgery. Also called a buccal fat removal surgery, because the buccal fat pad is typically removed, this face & neck cosmetic surgey can be expertly performed by Dr. Eric Cerrati.
Every face is different, and no two people have the exact same facial pattern. This is why Dr. Eric Cerrati tailors each cheek reduction surgery to the individual patient. The procedure is typically performed through tiny incisions placed inside the mouth through which the buccal fat pad of each cheek is manipulated or removed to accomplish your desired goals.
Healing time can vary, as cheek reduction surgery is sometimes combined with other cosmetic surgical procedures, such as a brow lift. A simple cheek reduction surgery is usually performed in about an hour and can be completed in an outpatient setting under general or local anesthesia. If your cheek reduction is combined with other surgical treatments, you may need general anesthesia and the services of a surgical center.

In as little as 7-10 days, any residual swelling should be gone, and you can admire your new svelte appearance. Your results will be so pleasing, and yet so unobtrusive, that friends and family will notice the improvement without discerning any evidence of cosmetic work being performed.
