Buccal Fat Reduction

Attain a sculpted and harmonious facial silhouette with our buccal fat reduction procedure at Trillium Aesthetic Facial Surgery in Ann Arbor, MI, and Plymouth, MI.

What is Buccal Fat Reduction?

Buccal fat reduction, also known as cheek reduction surgery, is a cosmetic procedure designed to slim the cheeks and enhance facial contours. This is achieved by sculpting and removing a portion of the buccal fat pads, which are located in the lower part of the cheeks. If you desire a more sculpted facial structure, or if you feel that your cheeks are too full, buccal fat reduction can provide a significant aesthetic enhancement.

Benefits of Buccal Fat Reduction

Buccal fat reduction offers multiple aesthetic benefits. By reducing the size of the buccal fat pads, the procedure can provide a more defined cheek and jawline, enhancing the overall facial contour. This can balance the facial features and contribute to a more mature and attractive appearance. Furthermore, the procedure can help correct facial asymmetry caused by uneven buccal fat pads.

Why Choose Trillium for Buccal Fat Reduction

When it comes to facial aesthetics, precision and expertise are crucial. At Trillium Aesthetic Facial Surgery, Dr. Ehland brings her wealth of surgical expertise to each buccal fat reduction procedure. Our team is dedicated to patient safety, satisfaction, and personalized care. We strive to understand each patient’s aesthetic goals thoroughly and deliver results that meet their expectations.

The Buccal Fat Reduction Procedure

Your buccal fat reduction journey at Trillium begins with a personalized consultation with Dr. Ehland. She will assess your facial structure, discuss your aesthetic goals, and explain the procedure in detail.

The buccal fat reduction procedure is performed in the office. A small incision is made inside the mouth, through which the buccal fat pad is gently sculpted, and partially removed. The procedure typically takes less than an hour, and patients can return home on the same day.

After the procedure, some swelling and discomfort may occur, but these symptoms usually subside within a week. Dr. Ehland will provide detailed post-operative care instructions and schedule follow-up appointments to ensure a smooth recovery and optimal results.
