Buccal Fat Removal
Buccal fat removal is an excellent, less invasive surgical technique designed to remove puffy cheek fat pads from the lower face in order to slim the jawline and contour of the cheeks. The procedure is usually done while a patient is awake under local anesthetic. A small incision is made in the mucosa of the inner cheek and the plastic surgeon carefully dissect out a small pocket of fat that makes the cheeks look chubby and full. Once removed, the lower face and cheek areas are slimmed and become more refined. Dr. Karamanoukian performs this procedure in his office in Beirut Lebanon and in the United States and advocates its use for patients who want to reduce the fullness of their face.
