Buccal Fat Removal

Every face shape is different, and those who are seeking a slimmer, thinner face are now turning to buccal fat removal. This procedure targets the buccal fat pads located between the nostril and the corner of the mouth, and once removed, the face looks sleeker and slim. This procedure is very popular with men and women who would like to add contour to their appearance.

How Do We Do Buccal Fat Removal

The buccal fat pad region is not suitable for liposuction due to the nerves that are found within the structure. Buccal fat removal is performed at MiKO Plastic Surgery under anaesthesia. Dr. Michael K. Obeng will make a series of incisions on the inside of your cheek to gain access to your buccal fat pad. The pad is removed using a radiowave or laser tool that seals bloody vessels as it cuts. Sutures are used to close the incisions.
