Dr. Robb Jr. has performed Buccal Fat Removal on Hollywood A- Listers.

Aging inevitably leads to our upper eyelid skin hanging down and “hooding” over our eyes. This makes us look fatigued, worn out, and disinterested. Compounding this appearance of fatigue and worn out, the lower eyelids create bags, deep tear troughs, and discoloration that attract unwanted attention to our eyes. Buccal Fat Removal procedures can reduce these issues. Buccal fat removal creates a defined, fit, and naturally slim facial structure.

Who’s a good candidate for buccal fat removal:

  • round face desiring more definition
  • never lost the chunky cheeks from childhood
  • seeking more chiseled facial features

CONSULTATION FOR BUCCAL FAT REMOVAL

Buccal fat is the cheek fat that contributes to a round face. It’s sometimes referred to as the ‘baby fat’ that gets pinched by our grandmothers.

A ‘heart shaped’ face is perceived as attractive and beautiful. The ‘heart shaped face’ theory refers to high cheeks full with volume that tapers down into a narrow chin.

Buccal fat removal can balance the lower third of the face and accentuate the cheek bones to create beautiful features that are attractive and often seen on magazine covers and in Hollywood.

A thorough understanding of facial proportions and balance and how this is effected through the aging process is paramount when considering altering facial shape.

The aging process results in atrophy or shrinking of this cheek fat pocket. If too much fat is removed then an empty or ‘gaunt’ appearance can be the result.

During the consultation, Dr. Robb Jr. will listen to your concerns and asses whether this procedure will help to accomplish your goals.

BUCCAL FAT REMOVAL SURGERY

This procedure requires a complete knowledge of facial anatomy. The facial nerve exists in the area of the face in addition to a small duct that brings saliva from the salivary gland into the mouth. Injury to any of these structures produces unwanted sequelae.

Trust your face to a facial surgeon who understands facial structure and anatomy.

This procedure can be performed in the office under local anesthesia or in the operating room while asleep under anesthesia. The procedure takes approximately 1 hour. No incisions are made on the skin or face so there is no long term signs for surgery.

Dr. Robb Jr. measures, marks, and calculates every procedure to ensure symmetry and knows the correct amount of tissue to remove without over treatment.

BUCCAL FAT RECOVERY & RESULTS

After the procedure, the cheeks swell similar to wisdom tooth extraction. This swelling lasts just a couple of days. Discomfort is very minimal. The stitches placed inside the mouth dissolve on their own.

The results are immediate when the swelling subsides and lasts a lifetime. It’s an excellent way to sculpt the face and create a more chiseled, fit appearance. The tissue removed does not grow back so it never needs to be performed. Patients rate the procedure highly at over “90% on the worth it scores.”

Dr. Robb Jr. performs a buccal fat removal on one of his patients that desired to have less volume in the cheeks and face to achieve a more tapered look! This sneaky tweak will have you seeing big results while still maintaining a natural look!
