Buccal Fat Removal in Wilmington, NC

la Belle vie Plastic Surgery

When we look at a baby or toddler, we can’t help but pinch those “cute chubby cheeks”. Oftentimes, as we get into our teenage years, we lose this fullness in our cheeks and continue to lose this volume as we age. For some individuals, this volume never goes away, and they are left with the appearance of having a wide and square face. A procedure to help “slim and narrow” the face is buccal fat removal. Utilizing an intra-oral incision, the excess buccal fat is removed resulting in a slimmer and more “heart” or “oval” shaped face. If achieving a slimmer face is something you are contemplating, call us to schedule a consultation to see if this procedure is appropriate for your goals.
